Rediscover: Depeche Mode

When I was a kid, one of my friends was really in to Depeche Mode and listened to them all the time. His mom always called them Depressed Mode. 25 years later, they're still good... or depressing depending on who you are.  Enjoy (the silence)!

Discover: D.D Dumbo

Don't be fooled by the dumb(o) name, this guy is pretty great. I tend to be leery of people who perform by themselves, making loops on the fly to create all the music, but he does it quite well. His D.D Dumbo EP is an interesting listen. Check him out and learn more about him here.

Five For Friday x2: Georgia

This week's playlist is full of musicians from Georgia. We have a lot of good ones and I had a hard time keeping it to 5... So I didn't. This week you get 10 for the price of 5! And I still ended up having to leave out a bunch of bands/artists. Let's just say we have pretty much every genre covered pretty well. Who are some of your favorite bands from your neck of the woods?
Have a great weekend!

Rediscover: Band Of Horses

I don't know exactly what it is, but I love their sound. Maybe it's the honesty of his voice and the simplicity of the music. I don't know, but I'm really digging their most recent album, "Acoustic at The Ryman (Live)". They sound so good live! I'm going to do my darnedest to see them live next time they come around.

Discover: The Revivalists

New Orleans turns out some freaking great music and The Revivalists are no exception. Funky rock 'n' roll with horns and pedal steel? I'll take it! Also, the lead singer looks like Keith Richards.

Rediscover: The Raconteurs

This is The Raconteurs a little different than you're used to seeing/hearing them. When you get an opportunity to record with Ricky Skaggs, you don't say no. :)

Discover: The Barr Brothers

Why have I not heard of these guys before now? I don't know, but I'm glad I finally came across them. I love their sound and always like it when bands use interesting instruments. Learn more about The Barr Brothers here.

Five For Friday: RIP(ish) WRAS

On this week's playlist you will find bands that used to be played on 88.5 WRAS... They're still there if you happen to be able to tune in on your computer, but GPB has taken over their airwaves during the hours that I normally listen to them. I still miss my 2 hour ska sessions every Friday afternoon...
Long live WRAS and have a good weekend!

If you've never listened to Mutemath, do yourself a favor and listen to them NOW. So good! So tight! And their drummer is a beast.

Discover: Great Lake Swimmers

Great Lakes Swimmers is another one of those bands that I've known of for a little while, but never got around to really listening to until now. Hope you enjoy them!

Five For Friday: Pests and Unwanted Guests

This week's playlist is all about insects and other critters that most people would rather not encounter... especially in their homes. Here's to hoping you avoid running into any of these and that you have a great weekend!
