WMNF’s Hot Box runneth over with new releases (plus some other new stuff)

Share this:

So much new music to listen to here at WMNF. And the music is in every genre, some songs combining a bunch of genres. Did you want science fiction/art noise/hip hop?  Hello, Clipping. How about psychedelic Tropicalia pop? Yay, new Allah-Las. But first let’s start with this artist:

The Soul of John Black  (This is an older video, but he has a new release, Early in the Moanin’ that is amazing and was just put in the Hot Box)

*********************

This is what our Program Director had to say about Shovels and Rope:

We have been waiting for this for a while as this album is already been doing very well. This is the popular husband and wife duo who have sold out a couple of shows locally (Crowbar, State).   Expecting an Americana sound, Flee and I were shocked at the first track which rocks hard like an out-take from T-Rex. The album has some loud rocking tracks and some quieter tunes so everybody should find something to their liking.

*********************

Joseph is a trio of sisters that have a little throwback in their sound because of the killer harmonies. Here is Randy’s take ~

Big buzz about the breakthrough from  three  sisters from Portland Oregon. .  Thier album has zoomed to number 3 on the Public Radio Triple A,  they are already on Bonnaroo’s list for 2017, and a show in Orlando’s Hard Rock Live 9/19 sold out quickly.

Michael Kiwanuka continues to blow our minds as we dive into his entire new album, Love & Hate. This is a long video, but this song is AMAZING.

********************

Clipping is getting a little extra attention right now because vocalist/rapper Daveed Diggs originated the roles of Lafayette and Jefferson in the splendid Hamilton, and now is appearing on black-ish and other shows. They will be playing St. Pete on November 1.

And WMNF Fav The Allah-Las new release, Calico Review, keeps some of their sun-drenched sound, but adds a little darkness.
