Live Ledge #369: New Releases

For the longest time, my Friday night broadcast of Live Ledge was preceded by Swamp Jacuzzi, an hour long celebration of the swampy sounds of Biggie Boutte. Work schedules caused him to abandon Friday broadcasts a few months ago, but tonight Biggie makes a big mark in this month's new release show.

It was actually exciting to get a promotional email from Rum Bar Records a few weeks ago, accompanied by Biggie's five-track EP, Lucy Anna, under the name The Yeah You Rights. The record was recorded in one frantic week last September, and it's all live. There's no overdubs, and the tracks were put down on five channels mixed down to glorious mono. Congrats, Biggie. It's a great little record.

Otherwise, this is a pretty typical new release episode. A few new singer/songwriters (Rich Ragany, Mark Crovzer, Terry Ohms), some psych-garage (Frankie and the Witch Fingers, Ravi Shavi, Yak), and all kinds of new artists. Or at least new to me.

As always, I hope everybody discovers a band or two they've never heard before! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
