PridjeviWe have two new heavy rock albums to start off today. Hush or Howl by Black Pistol Fire of Toronto and Austin and Get Pure by Mount Carmel from Columbus. Thee Melomen come from Zagreb, and they are basically Backstreet Brats re-branded. Pridjevi are from around there as well – studio trio which consists of Nina Romić, Dino Santaleza and Ivana Picek. Sally Crewe from Austin TX has a new ep with a cover of XTC’s Making Plans for Nigel. Doug Gillard is a guest guitar hero on it. The Hold Steady are back with the new record. For those who like mellower sounds, we have Kevin Kane from Toronto with his charming cover of Simon And Garfunkel’s Cathy and Allysen Callery re-imagines Gordon Lighfoot’s Sundown.

Mary Margaret O'Hara We start off rocking out to the new band from Japan called The Novice. They have a new single out on Dirtnap Records. Then we move on to an old Kansas power pop band called The Tunes. Their material is recently reissued on an LP called Love Uncool on Cheap Rewards. Plastic Pals from Sweden have an excellent new single and Pat Todd of the Lazy Cowgirls fame is back with the new band called The Rankoutsiders and the album 14th and Nowhere is a sweaty rock’n'roll record. We have some news from The Gories headquarters. Their old bootleg The Shaw Tapes saw a proper release on Third Man Records and their guitar player Dan Kroha has a new band Danny and The Darleans. We also have some news from the Yugosphere. Partibrejkers from Belgrade are back with the new single and Overflow from Koprivnica have a new record which features Mihovil Pavlek Miškina’s. Miškina was killed in a concentration camp 70 years ago. Jimmy Haber is a new name from the power-pop scene in Australia. His new album New Bondi Hippies has some catchy tunes spiced up with politically conscientious lyrics. Doug Paisley is a singer songwriter from Canada. A lot of people talk about him these days. What I find particularly interesting is that he pulled out of darkness reclusive Canadian singer Mary Margaret O’Hara who has a significant space on his new record. She had a landmark album back in the 80s called Miss America.

In our Live in Cleveland segment, we have two songs recorded at the Cleveland club Happy Dog. It’s one of my favorite places to go out to. They have an excellent assortment of hot dogs with rich sides and live music few times a week. The segment goes out to Sean Kilbane, founder of this club, who tragically passed away recently.
