The Ledge #614: New Releases (Pt. 1)

I was close to finishing off the tracklists for this month's two part new release series when I received an unexpected text message from an old friend. Rich Show, the legendary leader of three classic South Dakota bands (No Direction, Flag With Hank, and Violet), along with a number of side projects and solo releases, sent me the files for his upcoming record, Age Appropriate.

I could not have been happier with this shocking news, as he's been a great friend for the over 40 years he's been creating music. Obviously, I immediately sampled tracks from the record and inserted them into tonight's show.

But Rich is not the ony friend whose music is featured tonight. White Rose Motor Oil sent me the second cover of their "pre-owned songs" series. Rob Moss and Skin-Tight Skin have contnued their series of monthly singles. Numb Surprise, who contributed to last year's "52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks", provided two newly-recorded tracks. There's also fantastic tracks from our friends at Big Stir Records (The Half Cubes, The Speed Of Sound), Rum Bar Records (Beebe Gallini, Pavid Vermin, The Shang Hi Los), and many others!

My hope for these new release shows, and honestly all of my broadcasts, is that you guys enjoy these tunes so much that you go out and purchase them. If you do, please let these artists and labels know where they heard them as it really helps shows like The Ledge continue to receive these great tracks!
