Catch up on some alt, electro, and rock tunes in the Listening Booth this week with Mew, The Pack A.D., and The Mountain Goats. Plus hit up a Backroom Blues spotlight on activist, R&B maven, dare we say living legend: Mavis Staples and the new album out just a few weeks ago entitled If All I Was Was Black. 15 studio albums over 50 years, a Chicago fixture, and almost a Dylan! Hear that story, tour news, and (of course!) the record in the Listening Booth with DJRePete on BTRToday!
