I am going to do my best to keep this segment going because it gives me an opportunity to share some of the new music that I have been listening to on a weekly basis. With so many new bands out there it can be a daunting task to keep up so I hope this segment helps keep you aware of some of the great bands that have music that has been newly release or on the horizon.
This week we have college rock staple Rogue Wave, new hip hop from Earl Sweatshirt, beachy garage rock from Mikal Cronin, John Fahey inspired finger picking from William Tyler and the return of FOH favorite David Grubbs.
Rogue Wave – College
Earl Sweatshirt – Whoa
Mikal Cronin – Weight
William Tyler – Cadillac Desert
David Grubbs – The Plain Where The Place Stood
Sleeping Bag – Walk Home From their forthcoming album Women Of Your Life, this indie pop gem isn’t a lyric heavy song. Instead it is filled with happy guitars and even whistling!
Maitland – Embers A two piece featuring an acoustic guitar and drums, this song starts very simple and then unfolds when the drums warm their way in. From their 5 song ep released in October.
Pete Davis – O Holy Night FOH favorite Pete Davis covers a Christmas standard with banjos, guitar and more.
Lost Animal – Say No To Thugs A promising sign of a potentially great new artist, this track is taken from his debut full length due out in January of 2013. You feel the influences but you can’t pin them down
Say No To Thugs
Buke & Gase – General Dome The first single from their new album due in January is a rocker. A pounding riff that has me very excited for next year!

While Criterion makes some missteps from time to time link, link, I think they do a heck of a job selecting their films.
In a dream world Criterion would call me up and have me pick out a few films for them to polish up so here is my list:
