I am back with a new episode after a short break as the regular day job is keeping my pretty busy. However, I have also spent some quality time listening to new music. This episode should satisfy both regular listeners and any new listeners who might stumble upon this episode at some point with about an hour to spare listening to some terrific tunes. This episode is pretty pastoral and as you can probably tell from the track list below there is nothing related to Trump-Stormy-Syria-Cohen or politics. There is also one track by Liam Gallagher, former singer from Oasis who put out surprisingly excellent album towards the end of last year. There is one song that has the F-word in the title and several uses in the song, but I believe at this point in our democracy, nothing is shocking (Jane’s Addiction reference!)
Tales From The Drop Box Episode 110 is a mellow but truly sweet and the tracks cover a broader musical range – collecting a few tracks from last year with some newish released tracks. Every once in a while, throwing a change-up to the lineup is good. A couple of gems in here for sure. I had never heard the Archive track before and it is from an album that originally came out in 2004. The throwback isn’t really from that far back either as Anti-Flag released “We’ve Got His Gun” on the first A-F Records LP back in 1998.
So, sit back, crank it up, and enjoy …. until we meet again.
