Last night’s show was actually kind of hard to put together. I’m definitely surrounded by quality music but it’s been challenging to find the time to properly devote the needed listening required to ascertain what the best of it is to put on the air. Regardless, the show turned out pretty swell and I’m certainly impressed by newcomers like Frances Luke Accord. Winning songs and performances mark their new EP, Queen for Me. Also impressive is the new Mutts‘ release, Fuel Your Delusion Vol. 4. Check out the release show for Delusion at Metro on December 6. Amity Tribe initially strike me as a cross between The Subdudes and a jazzier Little Feat on their new record Small Roots From Sacred Trees. I look forward to digging in to the rest of the release but I always love when the opening track of any recording screams “Play me on the radio!!!!” and that’s exactly the case with “Stop Josephine”. Such was also the deal with “Rise Above” from the album of the same name by the The Despotic Hall of Fame. Also be sure to check out the good singin’ and good playin’ of Sure Fire Groove and “Call the Captain” and their release show for Last Good Standing at Cubby Bear on December 5. I’m Richard Milne. Back with our final Anesthetic interview of the year with The Life and Times this Sunday evening at an early start of 7PM here on XRT.
