Ellis Paul - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

For some 25 years, Ellis Paul has been one of his generation's consistently outstanding songwriters. A Maine native, he broke out of Boston, where he was a perennial Boston Music Awards winner. Since moving to Virginia for family reasons a decade ago, he's continued to tour 100-150 nights a year and managed to keep his writing fresh. For his latest CD, Chasing Beauty, he went to Atlanta to collaborate with Kristian Bush of Sugarland fame.

Question of the Day: Monday, Monday

Is it Monday already? But I haven't finished reading the Sunday papers, and I haven't caught up on my sleep, and I didn't do all the things I was gonna do over the weekend. Oh well, we can commiserate with Monday songs as we ease ourselves into the week. Leave your songs in the "suggestion box" below and we'll spin a set after the work bell rings at 9am.

Here's what we played:

Calexico "Maybe on Monday"

T-Bone Walker "Call It Stormy Monday (but Tuesday Is Just as Bad)"

The New Pornographers - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Over the 14 years and six albums that have shaped The New Pornographers, founding member Carl Newman has been the steadfast constant in what has evolved into a collective. Bandmates Neko Case and Dan Bejar have significant solo careers and in recent years, Newman has begun releasing albums under his own name. The geography has shifted too as Carl now makes his home in Woodstock, NY; band members are now spread out between Canada and the States. But what could amount to the dissolution of other groups has only strengthened the power and sound of The New Pornographers, resulting in what has been hailed as one of 2014’s best albums, Brill Bruisers.
