This week is a shameless plug. I’ve been playing with Aurora Sect for a few years and we started getting some momentum with making some new music before the world shut down last year. A handful of songs are getting ready to be released and the first track with me on bass, “To Sea”, came out last week. Check it out and enjoy.

After a little break I’m back with a gem from one of my favorite albums. King Crimson changed the way I listen to music and always feels like home when I go back.

I can’t stop listening to this record. There is no fat on it and it has everything I love about music. “Organ Farmer” is just plain rad.

I grew up listening to a ton of Motown, it’s part of me. The Supremes were one of my earliest memories of a singing group and still a favorite. So, in honor and memory of founding member Mary Wilson this week’s track is “My World Is Empty Without You”. So many of their songs are part of my DNA and this is one I have always loved. Enjoy!

Elbrus has a great vibe, kind of a mix of folk, 60s blues rock, and modern stoner metal. If you’re a fan of Cream and Black Sabbath you should check them out.

One of the first post rock bands that made me fall in love with the genre was Pelican. This week’s track “Immutable Dusk” came out in 2013 and was an instant favorite. I’ve been diving into some of the music that has inspired me over the last nine years and couldn’t go without sharing this one with you all.

This week’s track is “War” by Edwin Starr. He had a handle full of hits and this is one that I’ve always dug and feels totally appropriate with the state of the world. Not only is it a great message but it funks hard and just makes you want to shake it.

This is one of those songs that as I dug deeper into it found so much to chew on and have grown to appreciate as an understated masterpiece. Give it a listen and as usual…turn it up!!!
