The Ledge #484: New Releases (Pt. 1)
This is another of thsoe months where the new release episode is so easy to compile that it just has to be split into two seperate shows. So tonight is part one, and what is especially gratifying is that so much of the broadcast consists of "friends" of the show.
Yes, there's the usual contributions from our friends at Rum Bar Records, Red On Red Records, and Big Stir Records. But there's also newer friends such as Old Town Crier and Dan Israel, who emailed new tunes to check out. And then there's The Ex-Bombers, the fabulous "psychedelic jazz noir blues explosion" due that I recently discovered on Instagram. After an exchange of DM's, they actually sent me a vinyl version of their fabulous new "New Love Is Easy" album.
Besides those picks, there's brand new tunes by longtime Ledge favorites Son Volt, CTMF, Ty Segall, Wavves, and so many otheres. There are new discoveries such as The Pokes, Cosmic Psychos, and The Bug Club. Plus, there are a handful of tracks from Rum Bar's brand new "XOXOXO Volume One 'the nice price'" compilation.
I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. 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. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes on The Ledge! Let them know who is giving them promotion!
