“Music is powerful. As people listen to it, they can be affected. They respond.” – Ray Charles
On NEXT this week. It’s our look back. A review. A rewind. A reminder and/or a fine collection of songs played on NEXT during the month of August. It’s a quick, easy way to catch up on what you may have missed. Or maybe you a new music hero and listen every week.
“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.” – John Cage
This week is our review, a rewind, a redux of the great new music NEXT played. I can’t begin to even thank you enough for listening to NEXT. Hell, just new music. Thank you. Artists this week on NEXT: Pixies, Hailey Knox, Lake Street Dive, Blankslate, Middle Kids, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Royal Blood, The Happy Fits, The Struts, Def Leppard, Phil Callen, Joe Elliott, Chris Stapleton, Gord Downie, Caamp, Mipso, Dawes, Strung Like A Horse, Nothing But Thieves, Frank Turner, Jon Snodgrass. When you find a new favorite song – please share what song made your ears happy.
Music is Life. And new music keeps you young at heart. And keeps your mind nimble. It’s science. Do the google if you don’t believe me. Music is Life.
“Music is probably the one real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things.” Tom Petty
It was tough before Covid 19. Now more than ever we need to support these bands. Even something as simple as buying an album, or a ticket to a show (when live music comes back or if they are hosting online events), or a tee shirt. And if you can buy directly from them. Even better. Thank you.
