Today we begin with two bands based in Slovenia: ÄŒao PortoroÅ¾ and Lelee. In addition to their local tongue, in the best tradition of Slovenian bands, they also mix in Serbocroatian. And Lelee also does lyrics in Macedonian. That sort of panslavism is welcome at the Little Lighthouse. Another thing welcome is Todd Rundgren. Two recent bands released songs that sound a lot like his tunes: The Nude Party from North Carolina and Green Seagull from London. Son of Gene Clark, Kai Clark has released a tribute to his father and we check it out today. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard has a new single. We close the show with two tributes to fallen heroes. Emitt Rhodes has passed away on July 19 and Peter Green six days after that.

Today we start off with a track from the latest King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard album. Then we hear a new single from Ruby Boots, who collaborated with Indianola. And we hear it in live and studio version. Margaret Dollrod is back with her new band Heartthrob Chassis. In Belgrade, we check out the new music from Å ajzerbiterlemon. Also from Belgrade, we check out music from the surf trio cleverly named Threesome. Fever Feel from Canada have a new single (it’s a band that we just introduced recently. Over in Sweden, we check out The Janitors. It’s an older song, but it’s a good band that fell through the cracks for me. But the most exciting thing by far is the return album from one of my favorite 80s bands Danny And The Doorknobs. It’s a very surprising return to a band that existed shortly under that name, and is way better known as Trotsky Icepick. Their old album Poison Summer is one of the hidden 80s jewels and their new album might be even better than that. Definitely the most pleasant surprise this year and possibly the greatest return album since Mission of Burma’s ONoffON.
