The Ledge #605: New Releases Pt. 1

Once again the music gods have bestowed so much great new tracks that the monthly new release show must be expanded into two episodes. That is a great sign for 2024, and especially so because not only is there quality and quantity, but there's a great mix of classic artists and brand new acts. There's 18 year old Owen Adamcik's plan for a new EP every month this year. There are Ledge "friends" such as Rob Moss and Skin-Tight Skin's monthly single and a new tune by local legends Thought Patrol. There's the return of veterans The Smoggers and Rubber City Rebels. Plus surprisingly great new tracks by the liks of J. Mascis, Green Day, and Superchunk.

And to kick things off is a late submission for last year's "52 weeks of Teenage Kicks" series. Two weeks ago Thee Volatiles, "thee best punk rock band in all of Montclair NJ!" sent me their version, and I couldn't be more thrilled! In fact, I will always accept new covers of the tune. So if you were considering it last year, please go ahead and do it and I'll guarantee to open my next show with it!
