Everybody knows the drill by now. The first Friday of the month means it’s new release night at The Ledge headquarters (aka my bedroom). Somewhat weirdly, though, is that this February episode is technically the first new release show of the year. But that’s due to the Teenage Kicks subtheme necessitating a December 30 airing of the January new release show. Make sense? Speaking of “Teenage Kicks”, I’m so happy that this week’s submission is by Sixgun Republic leader Christopher Chancey! He’s got sort of a rockabilly vibe going through his little version, and I love the use of a piano! Chancey also submitted an old cover of “Sonic Reducer” his band put out back in 2007. Thanks Christopher!!! Do you have a version of this seminal tune to submit? Do you have a little bit of time you can set aside to record a track to air? Please submit it to me! I’m so blown away by the reaction to “52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks”! A few bands have already promised to forward a submission in the near future, but the more versions the better!

I may have labelled last week’s part one of the monthly new release series as only “friends of the show” but that doesn’t mean this episode is nothing but unknown artists. In fact, quite a few acts are pretty regular Ledge artists. The super prolific Wild Billy Childish is back with not one but two new projects. A new supergroup, UltraBomb, featuring members of Husker Du, The Mahomes, and U.K. Subs debuted their first single. And our good friends Torpedohead submitted a brand new track to promote their upcoming TRPHD EP. There’s plenty of other great new tracks this week, including some fabulous punk from Minneapolis’ The Von Tramps. The teenage members of Linda Lindas prove that rock and roll still has a rosy future. And Starky again proves that you can’t go wrong with covering “Teenage Kicks”. I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let […]
