Speedy Ortiz – Plough

ep75 Speedy Ortiz – Plough

Speedy Ortiz is getting some love, and rightfully so. . . their album “Major Arcana” is very, very niiiice. The melodies attach themselves to your medulla oblongata and deposit gritty pebble sized guitar notes that you’ll have a difficult time srubbing clean. Be prepared to foster their grunge pop into your life for the foreseeable future, you will not be disappointed.

A return to the music! The Visibles, a SF bay area band, released their self-titled debut LP this May and they open Season 4 of 1 Song 1 Show. Tucked away in the evergreens of Fairfax CA, The Visibles are a local favorite; and they have put out an impeccably produced album, hopefully one of many to come.

Happy Jawbone Family Band – Book of Fire

ep57 Happy Jawbone Family Band – Book of Fire

Happy Jawbone Family Band is as quirky as their name implies, and if I’ve learned anything about creative people, I’ve learned that they absolutely adore the moniker “quirky”. HJFB is not quirky, they are good. It is music that evokes and emotes. It puts me in a place distinctly within my mind and soul, a familiar place, a place that is comfortable, that is me- quirky. what.
