The Ledge #559: New Releases (Pt. 2)
The second part of this month's new release series sees no drop off from last week's extravaganza. In fact, it makes the case that 2023 is shaping up to be yet another great year of music. There are long-awaited returns by The Reverend Horton Heat, Chickasaw Mud Puppies, Cheater Slicks, and Shonen Knife. There are great new bands such as Civic, Strange Neighbors, and The Circulators. There's some punk. There's some power pop. There's some indie rock. Yep, just like normal.
This week's entry for the 52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks series is a version that was released in 2022. The Knee-Hi's are a great Chicago based band whose album, Charmed, is described on their site as "a living love letter to rock 'n' roll, serving up a mixture of rock, punk, glam, power pop, garage and doo-wop". Sounds like a Ledge band, right?
Once again I'm pleading for anybody out there to send in their own versions. I want as many new covers as possible! All you have to do is record it and forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
