Lelee

Today we begin with two bands based in Slovenia: Čao Portorož 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.

David BowieHere we are in our first regular show in 2016. We all heard the bad news – David Bowie passed away and we pay respects today. A less covered exit also happened recently – Brett Smiley, an American boy in the late 1970s who tried to become a glam rock star a-la Bowie, but failed. Still, he left a great album which only came out about ten years ago. Carson Van Osten also passed away. He is from Nazz, a legendary rock band formed by Todd Rundgren in the 60s.

But we also check out some new music. 76yo blues musician Ironing Board Sam has a new record, we introduce Milk Lines from Toronto. We also check out the new Sacri Cuori albums. Kevin Gordon, singer-songwriter from Louisiana is also back with the first new record in three years.
