Hilltop Radio No.10

Forecast: New Old New

Still pretty mixed as far as the music but not as mixed as most Hilltops regarding time periods. This batch is all recent releases from some of my fave artists, but what makes me real happy is that half of them were my fave artists decades ago.

J Mascis – Every Morning
Reigning Sound – Falling Rain
David Kilgour (with the Heavy Eights) – Comin’ On
Alexis Taylor – Without A Crutch (2)
Maximo Park – Leave this Island
Echo and the Bunnymen – Holy Moses
Sharon Van Etten – Every Time The Sun Comes Up
Avi Buffalo – So What
Of Might And Main – I Should Have Such Destruction
Let’s Wrestle – Watching Over You
Edwyn Collins – Too Bad (That’s Sad)
Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band – Newby Street
Parquet Courts – Instant Disassemby
Royal Headache – Stand And Stare
Mazzy Star – Things
Dean Wareham – Holding Pattern
King Creosote – For One Night Only

Always be buying new music.
