New bands & veterans, we add their new sounds

The artist-promotion site has led us to another find: An Austin-based band called Tahoma. Lead singer Brandon Aguilar and vocalist/percussionist Sarah Oermann formerly worked as a duo but have now formed a five-piece band and just released Hide Away. Our favorite track is the title song, so we've added that to our New Music rotation, but we'll also be spinning the official "single" from the album, "Emerald Ring."

Along with discovering new artists we always enjoy adding new works by veterans. 

Grateful Dead vet Bob Weir has a new solo album in the works, called Blue Mountain. 

The first song to spin out of it is "Only A River." It's co-written by Josh Ritter and makes references to the traditional folk song "Shenandoah."

Also brewing a new album: Dawes. We're not sure what to make of the foreboding title, We're All Gonna Die. 

The first single, "When the Tequila Runs Out," describes a party gone way too far -- reminding us that "it's hard to leave when you can't find the door."

We're constantly adding new music - and filling in gaps in our collection of classic rock, singer-songwriter and related genres of music. We welcome your suggestions too! Comment on this page or get in touch on Facebook, Twitter or email. And please keep listening!
