I'm busy writing up my latest live review, and I'll get that posted soon. In the meantime, how about listening to a couple of tracks that have come into my orbit recently? I'm glad you're game.
First up is Franco with Castaway. This song rocks! Franco is a 4 man band playing a mix of alternative, grunge, psychedelia and metal. In other words, they are a rock band. Ready to give them a listen? I thought you would never ask.
Have you ever heard of Caroline Rose? She is FANTASTIC! Caroline has only recently come into my world, and I'm glad for it. She grew up listening to classic British new wave and punk, so you know she's got taste. Here's a fantastic song that has me jumping for joy: Soul Number 5.
If you think Courtney Barnett is the only good thing coming out of Australia lately, you are wrong. Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever is a great pop band needing to be heard. This music makes me think it's time to fire up the grill, turn up the music and dance around on a warm evening. Oh well, too late for that on the East Coast as we're getting ready to head into winter here, but in Australia? It's time to party! Listen to this song, Talking Straight. Then go buy your plane ticket to Oz.
Surf punk out of DC? Hey, why not? Flasher is perfecting the art in the nation's capital, and it's a good thing for all of us. It's about time that DC delivered the goods, right? Check out Destroy. It's not the best video out there, but far from the worst. And the tune is great. Check out Skim Milk, too. Wonderful! And a great band name, too.
That's enough for now. I need to get the writeup going on last night's show. Talk to you soon. What, sad to see me go so quickly? Keep smiling, it's almost BRP's favorite holiday, Thanksgiving! A big meal with friends and family, football out the ying yang, and 4 days off from the oppressive Man. What could be better? And I'll be back real soon with some tasty treats for everyone. Oooh, la la, the Kid has great things in store for those smart enough to swing by and see what's happening in the land of BRP.
