Seriously, why is Spring being such a wuss? 70 degrees one day, then the next it's literally freezing. Thank goodness there is still some great music to be had out there. This week's MUSICcast is a look at some of my favorite "new" music that has been released recently. Here's a breakdown:
Snow Day - Blues Control: This sounds like something right out of Twin Peaks. I love it. You will too.
Will You Dance with Me? - Jeremy Jay : This young 'un creates some of the catchiest songs you'll hear. This has a groovy, intoxicating bass-line with a subject matter we can all relate to...asking someone to dance.
Country of the Future - Mirah: This a great song off a great album from a great up and coming artist.
Get Up Clara - Richard Shindell: Richard has created my new favorite album of late. It's folky, singer/songwriter done right. I'm not sure if this song is about a woman or his little girl, but I love it. Catchy.
Born 2 Be Fly - The Fly Girlz: This is a group of 5 girls from New York between the ages of 12-14. They wrote all the songs for their album with the help of a DJ. I can't get this out of my mind. Perhaps, I was just Born 2 Be Fly?
Dinosaur Jr. at Rhythm n' Brews on Monday. Enough Said. Tickets are $21.00 Showtime is 8pm.
Mitch Easter, Jane Starship and Tim Lee are at JJ's Bohemia tonight. The old Factory Pickers, new Binkley Brothers and others are on the bill for Saturday.
Ziggy's has the Misery Jackals at 10p.m. tonight. I don't know anything about them.
Again, the Avett Brothers are performing at the Tivoli Theater on April, 18th.
