This week’s music will all sound familiar to western ears even though two cuts come from exotic locales (Lebanon, Cape Verde) and one (Egoísta) is a Spanish-language remake of a song that wasn’t out yet. Rock and roll in the internet age, baby.
Who you get this week: Mashrou’ Leila, Bill Bourne, Murder By Death, NEW Bruce Cockburn, NEW Carmen Souza, Augie Garcia, Alice Russell, Front Bottoms, NEW Alex Lahey, Bee Gees, Leon Bridges, NEW Legendary Shack Shakers, NEW K.flay, NEW Jessie Ware
  • I ran across Augie Garcia reading about The Rise of the Minneapolis Sound, a well-researched and interesting new book by Andrea Swensson. The heart of rock and roll is in Cleveland? I think not.
  • 3al 7ajiz is a westernization of Arabic which translates to High Barrier. Mashrou’ Leila is an alt rock band from Lebanon.
  • Al Purdy was a Canadian poet who, it is now coming to light, died by assisted suicide.
