Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of Music Emissions podcast of the week. This week I ran off some new stuff that has grabbed my attention. Some of these artists are still a bit raw… Progressive Rock and a hint of 60’s Soul exists in almost all of these creatures playing. Some of it has a cheesiness, but all of them have a terrific future in music.

Civil Twilight – Letters from the Sky
Tame Impala – Half Glass Full of Wine
Musab – Kool Aid (Ghetto Juice)
Bassel – Senseless Dreams

    Cheese comes on strong with that Nick Tolford song. Geez. I didn’t really care for J-Roddy Walston either. I liked the rest though. Civil Twilight does seem like a band to watch for. Bright Light Social Hour was another highlight. Thanks Brian! Enjoyed for the most part.

    Thanks D, Yeah I feel ya on Nick Tolford, as I said in the podcast, that wasn’t my choice of songs to exemplify his potential…look into “Until I Walk Away”.

    I know Roddy is a bit repetitive and raw, but I really think theyre headed somewhere. Thank Benjy on Bright Light, I enjoyed them big time… Austin, TX does it again. How bout Bassel’s new stuff? I know its fairly reptetitive as well, but its an enormous maturation I think.

    Thanks for listening either way…

    Hey Brian let me tell ya about my faves. I don’t listen to radio much so I hadn’t heard that first one yet, wow! Thanks. I really liked Musab’s hip-hop track with Led Zep in the background, what a surprise. I guess my only disagreement would be the Tame Impala and Wolfmother comparsion.

    Really? Dennis’ first reaction was Wolfmother…weird…honestly? theyre actually on the same label

    That’s probably the only Nick Tolford track that doesn’t appeal to me much… I would definitely check out a few other tracks. He’s got a soul reminiscent of Redding, Green, and just about any other late 1960 R&B sensation. Other tracks here sound pretty stellar for the most part. A good Wednesday playlist for a slow day of work… I’ll have to give it all a deeper listen.
