Blitzen Trapper premiered the title track from their new album Wild and Reckless which is due out November 4th. And if this song is representative of the entire album it’s going to be a fun record.
Song of the Day: “Go” by Glen Phillips
I’ve always felt that one of the saddest things in life is unrequited love (ala “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits). But Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips has taken that a step sadder in his new music video “Go.”
Hayden Calnin’s Dark New Offering
The haunting, sultry music of Hayden Calnin’s newest release, “Collision” is used to simply draw the listener into the poetry of the lyrics.
The array of performers in support of non-commercial radio is in excellent hands – and hearts and minds and voices – as 28 bands descended upon the city of Philadelphia to celebrate the music and each brought their own unique sound, perspective, and magic.

Album Review: China Gate’s Compelling New EP
Another five-piece indie rock band hailing from Memphis released an EP last week. You might think, “ho hum.” But in this case, you’d be wrong. The band is China Gate and their new offering, a four single release titled Good Grief, is well worth a listen.
This week, more than 28 bands will descend upon the City of Brotherly Love bringing compelling music with them. They will discuss the current state of the record industry or music industry or digital revolution or whatever you call it depending upon the decade you were born in. Topics like “The Role of Big Record Labels” and “Music Metrics that Matter” will be on the agenda. But mostly they will bring Music with them. They are there to rock and to rock for the sake of the Music.
The Indie-Folk four piece band Tors is releasing a much anticipated EP entitled Merry Go Round next month and judging by the title track, which was released this week, there is much to get excited about. On the criteria of meaningful lyrics, vocal harmonics, and dance-ability, the band gets high marks across the board.
