The Ledge #596: New Releases

It may be the final new release episode of the year, but there's no drop in quality. As always, there's the usual mix of punk, indie, power pop, alternative, and other genres. There's a Rum Bar Records segment, along with new tunes from our friends at Big Stir Records. There are veteran returns and newbie introductions. There's something here for everyone with an inquisitive desire for new music.

As for this week's "52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks", once again we open and close the show with covers. The opening track is The Dead Brothers, a self-described mix of "gypsy folk, death blues, gothic country and dark roots" from Geneva. The closing cover is from The Patsys, a Columbus, Ohio garage rock band featuring former members of Gaunt, Action Family, and New Bomb Turks. 

As I do every week, however, I must again plead with y'all for more versions of "Teenage Kicks". If you are a musician, or have any contact with artists that could record their own take on the classic, please contact me!
