New Music Monday Proves Australia Has Soul

by John Stein

New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.

The Bamboos- Medicine Man

Australian band The Bamboos prove that the retro soul movement is alive around the world. They are strong as ever on their fifth album.

Dan Bern with Common Rotation- Drifter

Bern became an FUV staple due to his crafty wordplay and catchy melodies. After a string of live albums Dan shows off his skills on an album of new tracks with the band Common Rotation.

Eleni Mandell- I Can See The Future

I Can See The Future was recorded when The Living Sisters member Eleni Mandell was eight months pregnant with twins. Lyrically this record focuses on the optimistic road Mandell sees for her and her children.

Old Crow Medicine Show- Carry Me Back

Modern day bluegrass bands often don’t get the attention they deserve, but this band is determined to stand out. With their new album they employed Dropkick Murphys and Gaslight Anthem producer Tedd Hutt to keep it interesting.

Soul Asylum- Delayed Reaction

This alternative-punk band has been around since the 80’s, mostly making very similar sounding music. Yet with this release they are reinvigorated by new members: ex-Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson and ex-Prince drummer Michael Bland.
