#262: Aaron Frazer, “Introducing…”

Aaron Frazer is best known as the drummer (and singer) for soul outfit Durand Jones & the Indications. Like so many songwriters in the past few years, he teamed up with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and got his debut solo album, “Introducing…”, ready in no time. We’re not even halfway through January and we already have our first highlight of 2021. Feels good to be back.

#219: Nathaniel Rateliff, “And It’s Still Alright”

Nathaniel Rateliff has loved and lost. It really shows on his first solo album since 2013, going back to his roots after a successful stint with his Night Sweats. Serving as a tribute to late friend and collaborator Richard Swift, this is not your average “look, I’m divorced now” bearded dude folk record.

Songs by Motel Mirrors, Colter Wall,Phosphorescent, Adia Victoria, Swearin’, Fred Thomas (with Anna Burch), Ancient ShapesBroken Social Scene, Fucked Up (with J Mascis and Jennifer Castle), Super Doppler, Titus Andronicus, Action Bronson, supersilentJerusalem In My Heart, Nathan Bowles, BedouineMolly Burch, Gabby’s World, Julia JacklinDee White, The Wild Reeds, and Night Shop.
