March 15 2021 –SNOW DAY! YAY! Yeah no, LOL. But it’s still a snow day. Stay warm and safe. It’s a great chance to hunker down and listen to a batch of new music that hit my desk this past week.
Starting off – Gasoline Lollipops reenters the TOP 5 this week, jumping up into the #3 position, with Nathaniel Rateliff staying at #1 and award winner A.J. Fullerton maintaining his hold on #2.
One release coming out later this month is from Hunter James & the Titanic. The band is releasing a series of 3 EPs, culminating in an album over the spring and summer.
The first ep release is called “Tight-Walkin’ Man.” It is coming out March 26th and is a release ready for the band to tour behind as things open up this summer and fall.
Partially mixed and mastered by Danny Reisch and company at Good Danny’s in Texas, the sonic quality is as professional as it can be; meaning they’re serious enough to make that kind of investment to begin with.
In an era where the return on that investment comes from shows and we don’t know what this year’s show season looks like yet, going to one of the nation’s top production studios is huge.
