The Ledge #422: New Releases Pt. 1

While the daily lives of most of us have been reduced to lying on our couches in sweatpants, musicians have attempted to carry on their somewhat normal lives. Sure, the gigs have been cancelled but they're still out there creating. And while everything on tonight's show was obviously recorded long before the current epidemic, the fact that this past month has seen so much great new music released gives those of us sitting at home something to get us through the day.

In fact, there was so much great music unleashed these last few weeks that this month's "new release" episode is a two part extravaganza. Not only that, but both this week's and next week's shows go well past the two hour mark. (Well, that's the plan for next week's part two. That may change due to unseen circumstances.)

So what's in store in part one? There's a trio of new Replacements covers, new tunes by Ledge favorites such as Nap Eyes and The Buttertones, entire sets devoted to Big Stir Records and Rum Bar Records, plenty of brand new bands, and cover set that includes tracks from Ty Segall's surprise release of a Harry Nillson covers EP. There's also the reunions of a couple of my favorite bands, High On Stress and The Pedaljets!

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
