The Ledge #427: Quarantunes

When this awful pandemic first hit the U.S. and we started hearing about "stay at home" orders and "social distancing" I commented on twitter how I hoped this down time would inspire artists to spend their forced down time writing and recording.

Little did I know what an explosion we'd see in new music. Tonight's show is a sampling of the various projects that have come out in the past few weeks, and outside of a couple of tracks all of these were recorded at home. There's a great variety in the music presented on this episode. There's a few acoustic tunes, some great covers (including Daniel Romano's cover of the entire "Infidels" album), and lots of noisy little garage rockers.

After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
