As we leave January behind in the rearview mirror the promise of Spring is still far off in the distance, but the pace of new music releases is finding its footing and we welcomed the return of Bandcamp Fridays for the first time in 2022! Friday's program was loaded with new music, Boston music, and plenty of suggestions for Bandcamp Friday shopping.
Linnea's Garden will release their debut full-length LP, "Fashion Show" on April 1st on the Red on Red Records label and we debuted the lead-single "Looking" out ahead of the track's official release on Thursday 2/10. A music video will accompany the song and the band will host a single-release show that night at Jungle Community Music Club in Somerville along with Adi Sun, Baabes, and Pidge! We also heard great new Boston/New England tunes from Blindspot, Jean Paul Jean Paul, Jackie Therrien, Duck & Cover, and One Stays and hopped in the time-machine for great past local tracks from Oldjack and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. The Bosstones announced they have broken-up (after nearly 40-years and 11 albums) last weekend as we were digging-out from the blizzard. 80's Boston club favorite Scruffy The Cat's drummer Randall Lee Gibson IV passed away unexpectedly at the age of 58 on 1/27/2022. We raised a glass in his memory with the 1988 tune "Moons Of Jupiter."
Our most distant new tune came from Melbourne, Australia's Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, but we also popped-into the Isle of Wight, UK for another cut off Wet Leg's forthcoming debut LP. This duo who have been in the BumbleBee Radio Top-20 with the quirky "Chaise Longue" are just damn fun. We gave the new single "Oh No" a spin.
We also stopped into Richmond, Virginia (Lucy Dacus,) Nashville (TWEN,) Clearwater, Florida (Cloe Wilder,) and Los Angeles for new tunes from Beck Black and The Fanstastic Fellinis.
