Little Lighthouse is usually centered around music recorded with live drum and good guitars. Very rarely do we play synthesized beats and keyboard driven music. This episode is an exception. Nearly all songs are either synthesizer based or contain synthesized beats. Fake music. LÃ¼genmusik. I promise it’s just a one-off. I’m really not an expert in this style of music. But enough interesting new tunes came in to build a good show and it also left us with enough space to look for some classics. We begin with the new tune for Psychedelic Furs and continue with a new name for us, Billy Nomates (or Tor Maries). Then we check out a new track from Metrolight (in Cleveland) and Can Tan from Turkey. Key Out come from Australia and we check out one of the latest tunes from Moon Duo. Dead Milkman Joe Jack Talcum has a new synth based dune and the new EP from Sculpture Club is based on synths.

Last week we had a pleasure to see Joe Jack Talcum at the Beachland. Joe’s show was a very touching solo acoustic performance. He brought with himself another duet, also based in Philly, called The Bassturds. He also carried a box with the brand new Dead Milkmen CD. They reunited this year to record a selection of new tunes, but this time with Dandrew on bass replacing Dave Blood. So, in the first part of today’s show we listen to new tunes for the Milkmen, Joe Jack and The Bassturds. After that, we have some other artists with new records. Rock legend Duane Eddy is here, as well as Buddy Miller on a Tom T. Hall cover. Beautiful Amy LaVere is also here with her double bass. Black Lips have a new record, and let us not forget The Cajun Country Revival with their portion of Louisiana madness.
Let me just mention in the end that this is the last Little Lighthouse show and post until October, since we’re taking a small summer break.
