October has arrived and finds us very busy here on The Bee. It's awards time as voting is now underway for both the Boston Music Awards and the New England Music Awards. We'll be playing music from nominees in both awards-shows over the coming weeks, but please note that voting in the New England Music Awards closes 10/12/22. This week we featured music from Boston Music Awards nominees Baabes (Punk/Hardcore Artist of the Year,) Susan Cattaneo (Singer/Songwriter of the Year,) and Senseless Optimism (Singer/Songwriter of the Year.) Senseless Optimism's Brittany Tsewole is also nominated for THREE New England Music Awards: Songwriter of the Year, Pop Act of the Year, and Song of the Year for the tune "Leave You Behind." We debuted her brand new single "Done" on the Friday show.
Other Boston music in the mix on the Friday show included tunes from Cold Expectations (who have a brand new single out on Red on Red Records,) Travels With Brindle (following-up her recent single Linden Street,) Michael Kane & The Morning Afters (off this year's brilliant "Broke But Not Broken" LP,) Amanda Palmer (her "Theater Is Evil" LP turned 10-years-old last month,) Kristian Montgomery (I still count him as a Boston artist even though he's now up in Holly Brewer's stomping grounds in Vermont,) and the latest single from Little Billy Lost. Little Billy Lost guitarist/vocalist James Melanson shares birthdays this week with Thom Yorke, Gwen Stefani, and PJ Harvey. That's some pretty cool company right there!
We've also entered the "Spooky Season" and just started to dig into BumbleBee Radio's ever-growing library of Halloween-themed tunes with a NEW song about zombies from Minneapolis/St. Paul band The Short Fuses (Featuring Miss Georgia Peach on vocals) and BumbleBee Radio favorite Beck Black's tune about vampires! Oh... And it was Bandcamp Friday yesterday. Bandcamp Fridays are back! I snagged a FLAC copy of the new Double-LP, "Tableau" by London trio The Orielles. Their tune "The Room" came in at #2 in the BumbleBee Radio Top-10 on Radio Indie Alliance this week. You will be hearing more tracks from this double-album as we continue into the Fall. Simply phenomenal! Here is the full playlist for Friday's program...
