Nice to see Loma smiling smiley Such great people. Incidentally Sad13 (Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz) is on the new full-length cover album of Mirah's You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This.

zwirnm: I gotta say, Loma and Sad13 have been the surprise hits of the year for me - so consistently enjoyable. Good to know about Mirah’s cover album...

Philippe: Thank you again for your feedback and listenership. I start out every week with nearly 4 hours of handpicked tunes which inevitably gets whittled down to just under 110 minutes of music which may account for the perception of quality. Even crappy band names can’t lower the tone (I’m looking at you, I Love Your Lifestyle).

The Williamson/Tek collab was an eleventh hour substitution I’m glad I made - totally lived up to my expectations and fully warranted reworking the set list.

The Molasses track intrigued me the first time I heard it. I, too, thought it was two distinct songs gently cross faded together, but I accepted it as one piece. The band’s backstory is compelling and more than a little bit sad...

For those that don't know, Molassess (yes, they added the extra "s" for some reason) is the latest outgrowth from the great but doomed (no pun intended, sorry) occult rock band The Devil's Blood. TDB kicked off this whole 'aughties witchy hard rock thing, which has given me a great deal of pleasure over the years. Ghost gets all the headlines, but TDB was there first.

TDB was led by guitarist/songwriter Selim Lemouchi, who sadly committed suicide after the band's demise. Molassess named itself after one of his solo songs. Ghost also paid tribute to him with the song "He Is."

Finally listening to the Molassess album, and it picks up right where The Devil's Blood left off. Great stuff. Thanks for the nudge, 801!

Another great adventure in the land of new music, 801 !

Weekly highlights are the first track by New Pagans, Goat Girl and Jetstream Pony, although I must say the quality was very high from start to finish.

I was sure James Williamson had passed away somehow, so it was nice to hear some new music from him, and with his long-time admirer Deniz Tek, no less. I liked the song by I Love Your Lifestyle, but it's one of the worst band names I've run into in quite a while, so it tempers my enthusiasm. The next track, by Molasses, sounded like two different songs by completely different bands played back to back; both were good in their own way, but are you sure you didn't mistakenly play an addition uncredited band ?
