Just one of nine stunning tracks to enjoy on this episode.

1/2/3/4 — #197 — My Cup of (Dark) Tea

Dark Tea, the solo project of LA-based Gary Canino and he continues to follow the theme on previous releases with his amazing new self-titled record. That being – the wavering perception of time and the impermanence of love, in an attempt to transcend the mundane. It’s a top notch release featuring an amazing array of talented musicians. Highly recommended!

1/2/3/4 — #196 — Wayside Balladry

‘The Wayside Ballads Vol 3’ is the final instalment of a vision Ross Jackson and Bill Jackson had in 2014 to produce three records of our songs across two continents and back. For Volume 3, all hell broke loose globally via a pandemic. They were confined to their homes but decided to press on anyway, working remote to each other in a spree of sharing files, email, and telephone conversations over a period of four months. What emerges is a gorgeous modern folk record. We also feature excellent tracks from Coda Chroma, Fog Lake, Francine Odysseys and much more.

1/2/3/4 — #192 — The Finishing Touch

Why start at the beginning when you can go straight to the end? Actually I love listening to albums chronologically, but some people cherry pick or even abandon listening before they get to the last track on a release. Hidden treasures or duds at the end? You be the judge with this assortment of old and new tracks I really like a lot.
