To be honest we don't remember how we came upon Stoop Kids, but our instant reaction was - "OK, this is different!" This New Orleans-based band describes itself as "a psychedelic jukebox: they write and play inside a melting pot of genres, re-imagining the last 75 years of popular music."
This is music that doesn't exactly "fit" any particular radio format - so that makes it just right for us, eh? We've picked up their three latest singles: You'll hear "Motions" in our new-music rotation and "Good Enough" and "Quit You" will pop into the mix now and then.
Our other latest entries in the New Music Bin are additional tracks - in fact, the title tracks - from The Wind and The Wave's second album, Happiness Is Not A Place, and Van Morrison's 36th (!) studio album, Keep Me Singing.
