The Ledge #446: New Releases

Due to Gorman Bechard's appearance last week, this month's new release episode was bumped back a week. But this delay turned out to be for the benefit of the show, as it allowed for me to include some brand new tracks by The Replacements. Well, not brand new, of course, as they're defunct but today marked the release of the Deluxe Edition box set of Pleased To Meet Me. Along with a remaster of the original record, this box set is full of demos and outtakes, and tonight's show kicks off with a handful of songs that didn't originally make the cut.

After that it's the typical collection of great new punk, indie, garage, and Americana releases. Some of the highlights include new albums by the likes of Lydia Loveless, Drive-By Truckers, and Bob Mould. There's also the usual lengthy section devoted to new music from Rum Bar Records. How does Lou keep finding these great new bands?

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
