Lydia Loveless’ new album, Daughter is officially out today. It’s her first release on her own label and I’m in love. If you didn’t pre-order, go grab it up now on her bandcamp page. We’ll kick off the show with one of my favorites from the album, it’s aptly titled “September” and features the incomparable Laura Jane Grace.
Rounding out the first alt-country inspired set is Victoria Bailey and a track from her full-length debut! “Jesus, Red Wine & Patsy Cline.” It’s available now on Rock Ridge Music. Classic country for the 21st century, her voice holds strong alongside her influences, Dolly and Emmylou.
The next set kicks off with Tada! Fronted by Madeline Kassen (Pisha), the group out of Boston is making the ‘darker moments in life more danceable’ with their unique blend of psychedelic dream-pop. Grab their ‘Single’ EP up and add it to your daily music rotation.
There’s also a set of tunes from Gainesville, Florida. This music scene has produced legends like Tom Petty and Against Me!. Less than Jake, Sister Hazel and many more bands have formed in the home of The Swamp and the town is still producing one of the best music scenes around. We’ll feature a few artists on the show today but be sure to check out the latest edition of Spotlight on The City with Lottie for the full rundown of amazing Gainesville music.
There is much more in the mix as well. Don’t forget to find your favorite album and grab it up on Bandcamp, directly from the artist (or label) website, or wherever you purchase music. While you’re there, grab some merch as well. Give back to the musicians that give us so much.
