The Friday Brunch show turned-out to be a Boston-heavy affair. That's fitting as the voting is underway for the 2021 Boston Music Awards. We heard new Boston area music from The New Colors, Michael Kane & The Morning Afters, Bird Mancini, The Shirts And Shoes and Gene Dante & The Future Starlets. But we also made stops in New York & Los Angeles with new tunes from Long Island trio Megawave and Los Angeles artist Beck Black's electro-pop project JYNX. The strangest moment of the morning (by far) came from across the pond with UK artist Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs conspiring with The Lovely Eggs on a cover version of Donna Summer's 1979 #1 hit, "Hot Stuff." I'll never hear that song in my head the same way again.
We also introduced some fresh Boston cuts off Idler Wheel's excellent new "Superflux" album and Bent Knee's just released LP "Frosting." Speaking of Bent Knee, they are up for a 2021 Boston Music Award for Alt/Indie Artist of the Year. We're highlighting this year's nominees throughout the month of November on BumbleBee Brunch. Future Teens have three nominations this year including Song of the Year for "Guest Room" and Anjimile (just signed to 4AD Records...Congrats!) is up for a whopping FOUR awards. We played his new single, "Stranger" and "In Your Eyes (Reflection,)" which is also nominated for Song of the Year!
Not only is BumbleBee Radio regular Motel Black nominated for Rock Artist of the Year in the Boston Music Awards, but they're also part of a fantastic show next month in Salem. Of course we can't forget that while Santa rewards all the good little children, Krampus is always lurking nearby to punish those of us who have been naughty. Join us and all the other naughty folks for a Krampus X-Mas Celebration with Motel Black, Little Billy Lost, & Gretchen Shae & The Middle Eight on Saturday December 11th at Koto in Salem! Yours truly will be the special guest hostess for the evening!
BumbleBee Brunch and Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood are BOTH nominated for "Music Podcast / Radio Show of the Year." Thank you!! Visit BostonMusicAwards.com to see all of this year's nominees and to cast your votes!
