PROGRAMMING:
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about May 15 and will be available
for about 1 year. I usually publish on Wednesdays or as soon as
possible thereafter. You will hear music in several segments of top
indie/DIY/underground songwriters and bands.

RCB Novus Ordo is a separate podcast with 10 songs, one each
from a brand new recording. I spin the music and give you some backstory of
each.

 
PROGRAMMING NOTE: CD FOCUS continues with a very special collection of music. Courtesy of Unfinished Side Productions, I have received a disc that contains some of the last recorded music from Ravi Shankar, under the title “The Living Room Sessions, Part 2”. More info at www.eastmeetswestmusic.com www.ravishankar.org
 
I’ll be covering a music showcase event at The Legendary Dobbs, tomorrow May 11. I will also be interviewing The Dream Logic www.thedreamlogic.com Yes, it’s been too long between interviews and reviews.
Remember to send donations to RCB via the PayPal button at the home page. Thanks to those to have sent donations already!
 
********
RCB Novus Ordo: I’ve never given this show a solid introductory body of music so for the future I’ll start off RCB Novus Ordo with the actual first song from the first of ten artists I plan to feature. “Alticana” from Left Arm Ten is their shortening of the phrase ‘alternative Americana’. Yevtushenko, from Seattle, gets rather experimental in their own brand of rock. Ryan Cain and the Ables, from WV, bring some rockabilly to the table. I was quite taken by P*I*A’s background, expressed in many different styles of art including film.
RCB proper begins with brand new music from Russian-American songwriter Marina V. The brooding music of Marc Berger provides some dark contrast to the positive messages and proceeds from there, including recently released music from Chris Head & The Honchos. Blues starts segment 2 (Rod Piazza, Herbie D & The Dangermen), leading to more standard rock fare, notably the solo rock turn by Sam of The Happy Problem, and more new music from Astor Place Riot. Segment 3, following CD Focus, featured official showcase artists for this year’s Southeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, taking place in Montreat NC later this month. Final segment had an interesting depressive theme in it (Beaucoup Blue, Lauren Adams) and then something of a turnaround in view (Hungrytown). Listen for new music by Rodger Delany and Annika Vitolo at the end, both of whom I met at Cape May in March.
