New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.
Mount Moriah- Miracle Temple
Miracle Temple is the sophomore album from the young, North Carolina band. We would not be surprised if these guys were the next big stars of alt-country… We might actually be a bit surprised if they’re not.
Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes- “Love Letter”
Browne’s website says that her band’s musical home is an ex-coffin factory outside of Melbourne, Australia. If that’s true, it certainly doesn’t affect this anything-but-morbid song.
Robyn Hitchcock- Love From London
Hitchcock is turning 60 this month, but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to stop challenging his listeners. According to him, this new record ”celebrates life in a culture imperiled by economic and environmental collapse.” Intense… yet positive?
Bobby Long- Wishbone
This British singer makes quintessential American music. I guess we can give him some credibility as he probably knows more about it than us; Long wrote his university thesis on the social impact of American Folk.
