Here we are... Halfway between the Winter Solstice and the first day of Spring: Groundhog Day. I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who has stopped by and visited the website and my YouTube channel since things got started last month! I'm very much looking forward to a great year of new music and I'll be unveiling some additional features in the weeks and months ahead!
So if you missed the YouTube presentations for January's episodes of
Knock Knock: New Music! Here are all of last month's selections in a handy Spotify playlist. Let me know if you like this idea and I'll publish a Spotify playlist at the end of every month!
Last Sunday's Kimbra show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston was phenomenal! She did turn-back-the-clock just a bit with a couple tracks off her 2011 "Vows" album: "Settle Down" & "Two Way Street" and also included "As You Are" off 2014's
"The Golden Echo," but the rest of the night was new tracks from her forthcoming LP, "Primal Heart." Boston was the opening stop on Kimbra's world tour and it was an energy-packed performance. Providence, RI band Arc Iris did a very nice job setting the tone as the opening act! Expect to hear more about them from me moving forward.
It is Friday, so let's get to a few of today's releases that may interest you:
Simple Minds: Walk Between Worlds
Their 18th studio LP! The lead single, "Magic" was featured this week on
AWOLNATION: Here Come The Runts
The 3rd album from this Los Angeles alternative rock band.
DZ Deathrays - Bloody Lovely
Album release #3 from this dance-punk outfit out of Brisbane, Australia. Triple-J Radio has been featuring the album all week... Not bad at all!
Frank Zappa - The Roxy Performances (Box Set)
Seven CD's capturing all five of Zappa's December 1973 performances at the
Roxy Theatre on Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Lots of extra stuff as well!
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday. GO Pats!
