August 2014 CD of the Month
April 2014 CD of the Month - WXPN Artist To Watch, Lake Street Dive, released their album, Bad Self Portraits. Recent appearances on The Colbert Report, Letterman, and a critically acclaimed performance at the “Another Day/Another Time” concert celebrating the music of Inside Llewyn Davis concert last September at New York’s Town Hall has set this band into a rising star trajectory.
March 2014 CD of the Month - WXPN Artist To Watch, Temples, released their debut album Sun Structures on February 11th. The album has a big Phil Spector-esque Wall of Sound sound that’s heavy on infectious melodies, a big drum sound and glorious guitars.
February 2014 CD of the Month - In the current climate of music there is certainly no lack of talented singer-songwriters. With that said, it's even more impressive when an unsigned, independent voice can grab your attention.
January 2014 CD of the Month - As the Texas based band Midlake were in the middle of recording a new album last year, their frontman Tim Smith decided to part ways. At a crossroads such as that, most bands would probably decide to call it quits.
