Freaking Numero. They just don’t miss. Please enjoy this playlist of slowcore bands. (Slowcore = “generally characterized by bleak lyrics, downbeat melodies, slower tempos and minimalist arrangements.“) It’s 4+ hours!
Riot Fest has a great interview with one of my favorite artists, John Reis. He’s the mastermind/frontman of some of my favorite bands (Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Night Marchers) and he always has some sun-bleached So.-Cal. wisdom for people.

I’m sorry I waited all week to share this. It’s a really solid blend of music from all over the map. Hopefully it doesn’t disappear next week.
Hot Snakes made their television debut last night, live from The Troubadour. It rips, obvs.
Funk Rock Rides Again is a Spotify playlist posted by The Numero Group. Lots of solid 70’s rock songs with funky grooves. Can’t be mad at that.

Happy Friday! I’ve put together a playlist of new-to-me songs from the first three months of 2018. Not to get all Stefon, but this playlist has everything: oldies, some RVA local, a couple of psych rock jawns, power pop, groups you remember from the 90’s, a Matt Berry remix, Laraaji, and more!
It’s Prince as hell and I love it.
