The new full-length record from Chuck Prophet is a highlight this edition. His brand of clever, guitar-driven, hooky, singable rock is both accessible and thoughtful. We’re still early on in 2017, but Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins is among my favorites so far this year.
Karsh Kale is also a recent favorite. Up came out early last year, so I’m a bit disappointed that I only found it now. Karsh Kale has an amazing and unique blend of Indian folk and modern dance beats. His music is very percussion heavy, and mixes traditional methods with modern in a way that just fits together so well.
Also featured this week are local acts like Moon Duo and Dude York, as well new singles from well-established legends Robyn Hitchcock and Depeche Mode.
