Another New Music Monday

Another new music Monday.

The new release I’m most looking forward to this week is The Well from Waking Ashland on Immortal Records. This piano-driven indie rock band from San Diego has been making waves over the past few years. The new album was recorded at Bomb Shelter Studios in L.A. (owned and operated by former Stone Temple Pilots drummer Eric Kretz). The new disc will be available Tuesday (4/17) in pretty much any chain record store and any decent indie shop. Their last album, Composure, was met with critical praise and did well on college radio, particularly with the moving song “All Hands on Deck,” and I expect this new CD could really put the band on the map.

Other discs to look for this week include:

Joseph Arthur and the Lonely AstronautsLet’s Just Be
Joshua EnglishTrouble None
HalophilePanic Bird

As for live radio on the Internet this week, check out the sparse and beautiful performance of Eleni Mandell on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with Nic Harcourt on Wednesday (4/18) at 2:15 p.m. (ET).

Then on Thursday (4/19) listen to the unique rock sounds of The Broken West, also on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic at 2:15 p.m. (ET).

Happy listening!
