This Week's New Spins



Finally got around to reviewing new music and I must say, I have a huge backlog of some incredible new music.  In fact, I had a hard time narrowing the selections down so expect a lot of great stuff in the coming weeks.  Just a small programming note:  New Spins will now air Wednesdays at noon as well as Tuesdays at 7:00 PM (those times are CST).  We seem to have more daytime listeners than evening listeners and a lot of you have asked for more new music.  I aim to accommodate.

The hot album of the week is Hydrogen Child by Super Water Sympathy (In Music We Trust Records).  It won't be released until April 23rd but we are going to kick of today's show with the lead single off of that album, Uh Oh!, and as great as that song is, it's not even the best song on the album.  Look for lots more Super Water Sympathy in about two weeks.  You can read our review right here.

We've also got some incredible new stuff from Dustin Pittsley, Gram Rabbit, The Quick & Easy Boys, Well Hung Heart, Shannon Labrie, Kree Woods, Spindrift, Hollis Brown, Mikey Ohlin and two artists from ATO Records/Red Light that we are really digging on, Caitlin Rose and Bobby Long.

We also have an unbelievably good single by Nicki Bluhm and the Gamblers.  I'll say this: if 1970s artists had done 1970s music like Nicki does 1970s music with her new single Little Too Late, the 70s would be regarded as the greatest decade in popular music history, hands down.  We can't stop playing this incredibly infectious song here in the Jivewired offices.

Also, expect a lot of album reviews, looks like we are going to be doing at least one per day for the rest of April and beyond.  Coming off of SXSW we are simply inundated with tons of great music. In fact, it was through our showcase featuring Shannon Labrie that we discovered the lovely and talented Kree Woods.  Kree's new album is just great, and we've included the single Cut My Strings in this week's adds. Zodlounge Records has a formidable one-two punch with Shannon and Kree, and you'll be hearing a lot of both artists on Jivewired Radio throughout the summer.  Expect a review of Kree's new album, Talking Underwater in a day or two.  The album dropped yesterday and is available on iTunes.
