BumbleBee Brunch Playlist: 11/6/2020

Thank you to everyone who tuned into the 11/6/2020 edition of BumbleBee Brunch LIVE. We had some great new music from Boston artists Parlour Bells, The Devils Twins, and Field Day, plus a mini British invasion from newcomers The Mann And I, Caro, and Mumble Tide. If you'd like to submit your music for possible airplay on BumbleBee Radio, drop me a line at music@kristeneckradio.com... You DO NOT need to be signed to a record label or make it past an industry research group to be played side-by-side with everyone else.

November has arrived and yesterday was Bandcamp Friday, where artists keep 100% of everything they sell. I made quite a few purchases and I hope you had a chance to do so as well and help our struggling music community that has been shut-off from their main source of income in touring and live shows during the ongoing pandemic. There is officially one more Bandcamp Friday left this year on Friday 12/4/2020. I sincerely hope Bandcamp decides to extend Bandcamp Fridays into 2021, as we are certainly still a long way from being done with this nightmare.

Part of my mission here on BumbleBee Radio is to shine a light on new music that may not have found its way into the corporate entertainment machine and to also bring back songs that may have been forgotten about or left behind because they don't score high enough with big-media focus groups. Don't think of BumbleBee Radio as competing with your Spotify, Apple Music, or Tidal subscription. Rather think of The Bee (toying with this as a new branding idea,) as the place to find NEW favorite songs and old forgotten treasures to ADD to your playlists on your favorite streaming service.

This week's forgotten treasure comes to us from Long Island New Wave band, Industry. They released their one album, "Stranger To Stranger" in 1983. The single "State Of The Nation" did well in Europe, but only reached #81 on the Billboard Hot-100. The music video, however found its way onto MTV and I believe I saw it for the first time in 1985 on Boston UHF music-video TV station, V-66 in their own short, but wonderful existence.
