Eden BrentWe start off in a blues mood. First we have a Danish band from Copenhagen, Baby Woodrose. Their sound, half garage, half blues, is a perfect opener. Then we go deeper in blues. Steve Hill is a great guitar player from Canada and Eden Brent is a singer from Mississippi. Then we have Daddy Long Legs, who had a popular album two years ago with Evil Eyes On You and now they’re back with a new one Blood From A Stone. Towards the end we check out some new reissues with Paul Westerberg and The Shivvers and finish things off with a power pop band Ginnels from Ireland and the new record for Robyn Hitchcock which consists half of covers and half of originals. Don’t forget to stop by Blue Arrow Records. Among many cool vintage vinyl you can find one of my favorite records or all times, Tim Lee And Matt Piucci Gone Fishin’. I will try to feature one Blue Arrow LP each week.

Robyn Hitchcock is also here with a new album called Tromsø, Kaptein. Steve Earle also has a new record out called I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. Ad Hoc Detroit super group The Witches had put out a compilation record called A Haunted Person’s Guide To The Witches, which ranks as a seriously strong candidate for the best reissue of this year. A very pleasant surprise is the brand new collaboration between Susan Cowsill, Freedy Johnston and Jon Dee Graham in a band they call The Hobart Brothers And Lil’ Sis Hobart. The new songs are in progress, we got one from their website. We also have a new band today, Swedish hopefuls Bäddat för trubbel.
