2013 September Triple A Issue

Wondering which musical direction to take your station, how about going with “The New Black” the single from Nashville’s Moon Taxi?

Did the Fratellis get their name from The Goonies? If you get this Glasgow band into your studio please ask them and get back to me as I need to know.  What I do know is it’s great to have these guys back after a five-year hiatus with a brilliant upbeat pop/rock song.    For those of you at Boulder, you may remember the great reaction Sarah Jarosz received on both sides of the aisle (listeners/industry).    Sarah is the type of artist that Triple A radio can embrace as their own.  Her sound is reminiscent of the past while uniquely her own.  Fans of the show Criminal Minds may recognize the song by Lily Kershaw “As It Seems”. It was used beautifully during the season finale.  We’ve got some exciting new artists representing this issue including the pop sounds of Malaysian born Yuna bringing us “Rescue” and Irish artist Foy Vance giving us  the beautiful “Closed Hand, Full of Friends”.  Twin Forks is starting a tour this week and should be marching into your city promoting “Cross My Mind” in the next couple of months as are Crystal Fighters promoting their infectious dance single “LA Calling”.   Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros deliver another winner with the uplifting “Life Is Hard”.    Wheeler Brothers give us a song about life on the road with the rockin’  “Straight and Steady”. “Odds Are” you’re going to give serious consideration to the latest single from Barenaked Ladies and Matt Nathanson reminds us of how sexy it is when we see someone wearing a shirt  of a band we love in “Kinks Shirt”.
