The Ledge #519: New Releases (Pt. 1)

Once again, I have so much new music that the monthly new release episode has to be a two part extravaganza. Part one is dedicated to "friends" of the show. There's new releases from friendly labels such as Big Stir Records and Rum Bar Records. There's tunes from quite a few artists that routinely submit their tracks for inclusion.

And there's material from a couple of actual friends, most notably the long-awaited return of power pop maestro Dave Scarbrough. I've known Dave for pretty much my entire live music life, and nobody in my little city can turn a melodic phrase like Dave. I'm so happy to see that he's got a great new album ("Happily Ever After"), and obviously I'm even more pleased that he included a Paul Westerberg cover ("As Far As I Know"). Do yourself a favor and grab it from his bandcamp.

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! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
