#1714: Keep The Beat (feat. Winstons)

Winstons are a two-piece roots/garage rock outfit based in Brooklyn.  Guitarist/singer Lou Nutting & drummer/singer Ben Brock Wilkes lay out bare-bones rockers with serious soul and bring that raucous energy to every live show.  They were nice enough to sit down with me and chat about touring, the benefits of a small band and their future plans after the release of their excellent 7″, Without You, available now on Warhen Records.  Great tracks abound as well with songs from the entire Winstons catalog and from some of their favorite artists, plus a few of my own selections including new tracks from White Mystery & Strange Majik.

Many thanks to Ben and Lou for putting up with my constant nervous laugh, and if you haven’t seen them live then it’s time to stop missing out.  Fill that hole at their next live show:  Saturday, April 29th w. Matt Vasquez at Rough Trade.

#1710: Almost Grown

Chuck Berry finally shuffled off at the age of 90 this week and as a St. Louis native myself it’s sad to see him go. The first half hour today is all about sneaking a peek at some of his influence. Rest easy to one the most influential figures in rock and roll!

The rest of this week gives some love to Sly Stone for his birthday, Thin Lizzy for being Irish, some hard rockers and psych freakouts and BRAND NEW tracks from Sun Abduction, Pontiak, Entrance, Stuyedeyed, Kung Funghi, & Prana Crafter.  There’s even a preview of Riding Easy Records’ new Brown Acid comp!

Something for everybody is what I’m getting at. I’m gonna put my adult cares aside for a bit and rock out. Care to join me?
