BumbleBee Brunch Playlist: 3/18/2022


The final Friday of Winter found us hearing tunes from far and wide on BumbleBee Brunch. Our most distant songs came in the form of a new track from India's (now North Carolina's) Gauri Paighan (we've been playing her first submission "November" over the past several weeks) and Israeli duo Indie Butterflies Dream.

Back here in the states we heard new music from Los Angeles singer/songwriter Hana Vu and another track off the new album from Minneapolis artist Miss Georgia Peach. She collaborated with Atlanta's Nashville Pussy on the "Aloha From Kentucky" LP, and we played their new take on the 1963 Billy Edd Wheeler/Jerry Leiber tune "Jackson" (the most famous version of the song was recorded in 1967 by June Carter & Johnny Cash... No wonder why I love it!)

This week's Brunch buffet was loaded with Boston music including fresh cuts from Slothrust, The Dogmatics, Senseless Optimism, Muzzins, Telamor, Phil Cambra & The Space Cadets, and Roll Over White along with great past tracks from Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys, Buffalo Tom, Passion Pit, Christian McNeill & Sea Monsters, and Dropkick Murphys (the last two were part of our post-St Patrick's Day celebration!) Christian McNeill is currently recording a NEW album over at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham. Can't wait to hear it! Catch Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys LIVE on Saturday 3/26/2022 along with Little Billy Lost, The Shang Hi Los, and Modern Day Idols at Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain. I am your special guest hostess for this power-packed evening of music!

On the Friday program we were delighted to feature TWO worldwide premieres. Boston electronic/ambient artist Violet Nox is set to release their new album "Eris Wakes" on 3/31/2022. I have an advance-copy of the entire album (thank you Dez DeCarlo for hooking-me-up) and I can report it is a sonic feast for the ears! Listen with a really nice set of headphones (like my Audio Technica ATH-M50X headphones) and you be blown away by this new offering from Violet Nox! Pre-order the album via Infinity Vine Records (digital or CD & digital) on Bandcamp and instantly get the first track "Spaceport 5," (which we featured on Friday's show!) Pro-Tip: Select "FLAC" or "WAV" as your digital-download format on Bandcamp for ultimate high-end sound quality (YES, I'm a huge audiophile/snob!)

You can catch Violet Nox LIVE on Friday 4/8/2022 at O'Brien's Pub in Allston along with Andre Obin, Ex-Hyena, J. Bagist, Christina Shivers, and JSanterelli. I am your special guest hostess for what is sure to be a wonderful evening of electronic music!

BumbleBee Radio was also the first station to feature the brand new single from Smithfield, Rhode Island artist Lainey Dionne! Lainey's song "Senti(mental)" received heavy airplay on The Bee and made our 2021 Holiday Hundred countdown show. The song is a now finalist in the International Songwriting Competition! Click HERE to vote for Lainey! Not one to just sit around waiting for an award, Lainey is busy playing in-person and live-streaming shows and working on a second album to follow-up 2021's "Self Titled" release. She has started a Rocket Fuel store where you can purchase music and make a donation to help fund the new LP. Click HERE to check-it out!

"Video Game" is the newest single from Lainey Dionne being released on Bandcamp and all major streaming platforms on Sunday 3/20/2022 and we were very honored to be the first media entity in the world to play the song on Friday!
