A lovely update today with the new music from the legendary Robyn Hitchcock of the Soft Boys. We also check out new tunes from Ruby The Hatchet from New Jersey, Futurebirds deliver a solid cover of Roky Erickson, Hooten Hallers are back with the new album and so is The Intelligence and Lithics. We introduce Amplifier Heads for the first time at the show. We also check out a new colab between Mike Watt, Jim Keltner and Mike Baggetta. We close the show with the new single from the Zagreb band B. Confidential & The Secret Four. We also pay a tribute to Bob Neuwirth, a legendary singer songwriter, originally from Akron, who passed away on May 18 this year.

Chris CacavasToday we continue discontinuity with Chris Cacavas. He had an album in 2009, which we pronounced the best LP that year, called Love’s Been Discontinued. It turns out that Chris had more than just 12 songs back then. There were 11 more demos which he decided to finish out recently and turned into the continuation of the 2009 album which just came out recently. So, how do you continue discontinuity? Cacavas came up with the new term (re)discontinuity. Brilliant! We also have three new bands this time: English Singles from Sacramento, CA, Futurebirds from Atlanta GA, Gooch Palms from Perth, Australia. Marshal Crenshaw is back with the new EP called Stranger and Stranger and Connection of Portsmouth, NH are back with the new, self titled single. We also have three nice compilation records connected to the 60s rock’n’roll scene in Memphis and Muscle Shoals: Feeling High The Psychedelic Sound of Memphis and Hall of Fame Volume 2. The third one is called Pesme ispod pokrivaca and it is put together by the gig promoter Ivan Loncarevic from Pop Depression who is celebrating 10 years of activity.
