I believe this will be our last new music show of the year. Next week. Quite sure I’m going to start 4 weeks of Notable Songs of 2019. A month of our favorites.

Michigander begins this week. It’s a strong start. It’s a good start. It’s on tape so it’s the start. Spoon released on a small 7 inch in 2002. Now it’s on their greatest hits. And like all good greatest hits albums there are songs missing. And it’s a good way to start if you haven’t started listening to Spoon. Although I find that hard to believe. Quite happy to have new Milton in the world. And my kids like Cold War Kids so here they are. We dig a wee bit deep into The Cure live. This one of the Crow soundtrack. One album I keep coming back to is Sturgill Simpson. Man, what a killer album he made.

Paul And The Tall Trees. Some rock. Some soul. Some Americana. Some voice. See what I did there? I know the best jokes are the ones you have to explain. AO featuring Mondo Cozmo. She mellows him out a bit. Holiday single from PJ to get you in the mood. And Yola kills this cover of Elton John.

Courtney Barnett is brilliant. And live, even better. I had no idea MTV was still doing Unplugged and here we are. This wee’s other holiday (not holiday song) is by Paul Kelly. Halfnoise is the drummer of Paramore and friends. Lovely jam here. The Black Keys finish it up. Sounding like the Black Keys you know and love. Or at least know.

Thanks for listening and thanks again to Ocean 98 for putting next on the radio.

New music discovery is important and thank you for doing your part.

Please support these bands…or we wouldn’t have bands like this around to support. Buy an album, or a ticket to a show, or a tee shirt, or…something from them. Thank you.

If there are any bands/managers/labels etc that want their music removed (for any reason) please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands, for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad please think it over again. I am a music maker advocate.

Spotify playlist updates on Thursday. Link to Chris Bro on Spotify.
