(not) ROUTES & BRANCHES
> Wednesday Morning Mix <
November 16, 2011
Scott Foley

Had some fun on this morning's Mix program, and it looks like I'll be Occupying 8-10 on Wednesdays for at least a few weeks.  While these aren't really R&B-ready playlists, I'll still record them here, because it's still some damn good music. 

How can this be Glossary's seventh album already if I'm just getting around to playing them?  Long Live All Of Us, to their credit, does sound worlds away from even their sixth album, Feral Fire.  This new effort finds the Tennessee band adding piano, horns and pedal steel to their soulful alt.country.  Glossary's sound is still largely built around Joey Kneiser's guitar and vocal, but I hear so much more depth and maturity to this new music.  Add one more contender to my Long List for year-end favorites.

Fine new Colorado music  from The Longest Day of the Year here, too.  Looking forward to digging further into the Boulder band's crunchy, slightly sinister bluesy-rock.  Also nice to have the full Lizzie Huffman album at our disposal.  While her Pretty Old Soul repeats half a dozen cuts from her debut EP, it remains one of my favorite CO releases of 2011.
