ROUTES & BRANCHES
August 20, 2011
Scott Foley

Could take a couple Episodes before "You're with Scott Foley on KRFC's Routes & Branches" rolls off my tongue like it once did. Can't promise that I'll ever abandon tripping over "KRVM" here and there. Old Habits. But I'm honestly thrilled to be back on Saturday afternoons (from 4 to 6 Mountain Time, spread the word), and there is a sort of liberation in not being part of a larger "Mix" operation. I'm now a self-contained entity.

For this inaugural Episode, this return to R&B, we looked a couple weeks down the road at some pending releases. Chuck Ragan is joined by Revival Tour companion Brian Fallon from Gaslight Anthem. Laura Marling begins her new tune in the same brit-folk vein as her previous CD, but pulls the sonic curtain aside to reveal a real live band by the song's end. Even better, our second glimpse at Blitzen Trapper's forthcoming album almost prompts me to reserve a spot on my year end favorites list ...
