New Music with Jay Moberg

New Music!


I know times flies…but the Summer has broken a new record for how fast time has flown.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and now we’re looking at Fall and the return of brisk temperatures here in New England.  I’m always excited for the Fall for some reason, and the more I thought about it the more I realize it probably has something to do with a plethora of new music being released in the coming weeks.  I can’t possibly break it all down for you in one paragraph but I’d like to point to some new releases that might be worth jotting down. 


Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer have a new album called Bass & Mandolin which will be out on September 9th courtesy of Nonesuch Records that I’m sure will be nothing but impeccable.  There’s actually a lot of music being released that same day including Single Mothers from Justin Townes Earle, Robert Plant’s new project called lullaby…and the Ceaseless Roar, a new self-titled album from Ryan Adams and one of my personal favorites of the year called Madman from Sean Rowe.


Further into the Fall you can also expect the final album from the late Jesse Winchester called A Reasonable Amount of Trouble, a new project from Jeff Tweedy and his 18 year old son called Sukierae, the 13th studio album from Leonard Cohen called Popular Problems and also a 3 disc set of music (some of it previously unreleased) from Woody Guthrie called My Name is New York.


We can’t forget about forthcoming releases from John Mellencamp, Lucinda Williams and Jackson Browne all coming out later in the Fall as well.  I think it’s going to be a very interesting few weeks with tons of great music being put out there and of course we’ll do our best featuring all of it and trying to have it all make sense for you!


Thanks as always for listening and supporting WUMB…we simply cannot do this without you!
