Thanks for listening. Keep social distance. And wash your hands again.

Andy Frasco wanted to write about this mental health because this is important. It affects him, his friends, fellow musicians. Let’s look out for each. Black Pumas are a Texas psych-soul band. And this song has top ten end of the year potential. I play a Pretenders off number album number 11. Saying of this tune: “I think we all know that love affairs can take on the characteristics of drug addiction. Beachtape with hints of Weezer, no? Or is it just me. I like it. The Bluechips. I can’t remember who suggested them. It was on twitter. Please forgive me. And thank you for the suggestion. Vundabar are indie rockers from Boston and just released album number 4.

Grouplove are back after 3 years. It was a much needed break plus a marriage and a birth. And, yes, they have a few things to say about our current situation. Cornershop with another highly satisfying groove.

Borrowed Sparks speaks the truth on this tune. Alsi, I just interviewed him. Brilliant person even if he’s a St Louis Blues fan. I’ll be posting this interview soon. Jones Jones on vocals and piano while Tweedy is on electric guitar, acoustic guitar and bass. Yes, it’s Jeff Tweedy from Wilcom. Tweedy’s son, Spencer, tackles the drums. This Paul Kelly song reminds me a bit of Prine’s “Inspite of Ourselves”, no? Probably just me. (Sandy) Alex G is one of Philly’s great current song writers.

The Porches songs I pick is a bonus track. The back story is brilliant. It’s based on a girl in HS he had a crush on. That drove —> that’s right! A Range Rover. Love it. Indigo Girls like many doing facebook live shows as they can’t tour. Have you been watching any online music shows? Press Club with lively punk guitars and hooky vocals —> just to make me smile. Probably not. Still I smile. Just plug in and play it loud. Supersuckers have been doing this for 30 plus years. And needed more now then ever.

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.

Spotify playlist updates on Thursday(ish). Link to Chris Bro on Spotify.
