2015 April Triple A Issue
April is almost here and gone but it also signifies the beginning. Beginning of baseball, music festival season and the start of summer time hits. Look no further than Good Old War and “Tell Me What You Want From Me”. Those “oh oh oh’s” and “hey’s” are going to hook listeners in immediately. Fun fact: Good Old War got its name by using parts of band members Keith GOODwin, Tim ArnOLD and Dan SchWARtz.
Scars on 45’s “Take You Home” has a romantic summer time feel to it. I can easily imagine couples across the nation having this song played during wedding celebrations. Radio is getting on board as the song is about to enter the top 30.
I think everyone can agree that Grace Potter puts on a dynamic show and based on this powerful song I’m betting that “Alive Tonight” is going to be a highlight for her upcoming tour. It jumped 101 spots from last week and garnered 3 more adds this week.
After three years away it’s great to have Heartless Bastards back with new material. You seem to be welcoming them back with open arms as they’re already Top 50 at Non-Comm. Speaking of which, do not miss them when they play in Philadelphia for the Non-Comm conference next month. If you’re not there, make sure to catch them on their tour this summer with The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn.
More great music on this sampler to discovery including the Partisan debut from TORRES, a song from Devlan James that references back to the David Bowie classic or is he referencing Peter Schilling? Davy Knowles formerly of Back Door Slam is finally back with “The Outsider”. I get a strong Bon Iver vibe “All The Pretty Girls” from Iceland’s Kaleo. They’re currently on a summer tour that includes Bonnaroo. Last but certainly not least is one of my favorite artists of the year. If you’re not playing Courtney Barnett yet, you are depriving your listeners of one of the best albums of the year and “Dead Fox” is a very good place to start. Enjoy!
