The Final Playlist (For Now)

In an effort to focus more on longform posts, this'll be the last playlist for the time being. Thanks for following along!

Granz -- "Winter Street" hits too many sweet spots to resist. This is just a great acoustic pop confection with a heavy debt to the 90s.

Casey Wickstrom -- "Desperate Times" is an intense blues instrumental that'll have the desired effect -- you won't help looking over your shoulder while you're listening.

Run Rivers -- "Lost Love" has a pop sheen but its lyrics and vocals are heartfelt -- a soothing balm to anyone who's lost someone recently.

Liz Bills -- "Werewolf" is a pop folk song about being a werewolf. You know what? Why not? It's begging for placement in a CW show, and that's totally fine with me.

Bradley Palermo -- "2nd Wind" starts with a killer first verse and ramps up from there. Palermo's no stranger to these parts and I'm more than happy to have him back.

Robb Westlund -- "Don't stand in the way of the lonely" is just one of those times when banging on a guitar is better than feeling whatever it is you're feeling.

Karla Kane -- "The Lilac Line" is the lead single in what Kane refers to as a "pagan pop" album. This song is so gormlessly charming that I can't help but fall in love.

Evan Moynihan -- "Traveled Road" marks Moynihan's second go-round here. It's clear Moynihan's clear-eyed, charming songs are going to take him places.

Blind Tigers -- "Demolition Blues" combines my two greatest passions: distorted guitars and protesting the urban blight that is urban "renewal."

Beev Rations -- "Why don't you?" closes us out with some classic rock'n'roll and unrequited love -- the best combination since peanut butter and jelly.
