Saturday Spins: Leon Bridges Good Thing

Leon Bridges occupies a space or two because I dig his particular brand of soul. It’s not too poppy, and it isn’t too experimental to seem like it’s a parody.

Dawes North Hills 4

Saturday Spins: Dawes North Hills

Have you ever had the opener actually being better than the main act? While Dawes was performing, we knew they were something special then.

Saturday Spins: Bright Eyes

I texted my good friend and told him it sounded like early Bright Eyes, but with better production and sound engineering.

Sunday Spins: Black Pumas

I am pretty excited to discuss this week’s spin, though. I first heard about and heard Black Pumas while watching Austin City Limits

Saturday Spins: Ryan Adams

Let’s talk a little bit about Ryan Adams’s Gold and why it is a landmark record.

Operation Ivy 4

Saturday Spins: Operation Ivy

Operation Ivy was only a band for 2 years, 1987-1989, and as I have often said before, burned bright, but flared out quickly.

wilco 21

Saturday Spins: Wilco Schmilco

Folks, not sure how I can carry on after covering the perfect album last week, but I am a slave to the Discogs randomizer. This week, I’ll be covering another release from dad-rock titans,...

Orville Peck 6

Saturday Spins Returns: Yeehaw

This week’s spin features a mysterious man in a frayed lone ranger mask. However, for the sake of his art, I will only refer to him as Orville Peck.

Saturday Spins: Jack White

Saturday Spins: Ryan Adams

This album release is credited as a solo Ryan Adams record, however, musically it is a Ryan Adams & The Cardinals record through and through.

Big Star

Saturday Spins: Big Star

I discovered Big Star later on after they were championed by some of my favorite artists like Ryan Adams and Mike Viola

Wilcon

Sunday Spins: Wilco

I did receive a consolation prize with my Wilco order though: a plain black number 2 pencil with “ODE TO JOY” carved into the wood.

Sturgill Simpson

Saturday Spins: Sturgill Simpson

Sound & Fury is decidedly not a country album in any way. That is what makes it and Sturgill so great.This is also where the divisiveness sets in…

Rancid

Saturday Spins: Rancid Ska

This week I will be covering punk rock outfit Rancid. The twist is the randomizer spit out an official/unofficial compilation of their best ska tracks.

The Go

Saturday Spins: The Go

On this week’s edition of the soon-to-be-popular Saturday Spins, a new release, really a reissue, by the little-known garage rock outfit, The Go.
