Thanks for listening. Keep social distance. Flatten that curve. And wash your hands again.
EOB starts off the week with a bit of a glorious invention called the guitar. Does Radiohead remember the guitar? Thank you Ed for remembering the guitar. OJR add a psychedelic banger. The Yves Tumor tune is loud and maintains a groove. Well played. Sparks are back. And not messing around new album and musical and documentary coming sometime in the near distant furture. Pearl Jam off album 11. They sound alive and vital. PJ don’t need to make more music and I’m so happy they still are. Keep making music.
Bob Dylan sing/talks abut JFK. For a long time. Best he has sounded in years. Waxahatchee with a damn fine new album. You’ll find something to like. Girl Ray pivoting from indie jangly rock to pop. But not pure pop. Indie Pop? Sure let’s go for that. And some chair dancing from Mr Bro.
Power pop. Clever without being annoying is not easy. The Unmistakable Genius of Adam Schlesinger. I knew as soon as I had heard Radiation Vibe on the radio is this my band. And Adam was so bloody consistent. Every album had songs that should be hits. As big as Stacy’s Mom. That’s the glory of Stacy’s Mom. It’s just another brilliant power pop gem. The stories they tell in 3 and a half minutes are just pure magic. It’s unmistakable genius. Genius.
Sending peace and healing to his family, friends, and fans.
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.
