Space is Cool Again?

1/8 Show
January has been a relatively slow month for new music as we wait for more albums to start seeing their release dates in the coming weeks. A few new gems from the Black Lips & Dan Auerbach did, however, find their way into the mix this week.

A humorous aside: After reading about the upcoming NASA album, "The Spirit of Apollo", and its many guest stars, I briefly thought the space agency was cool again. Ten minutes later, I learned its a project from Squeak E. Clean & DJ Zegon and it rather moronically stands for "North America South America". It would be cooler if it was sponsored by the folks who brought us Tang. (A roundabout link to one of the tracks is posted below).

Mp3 links are forthcoming. I hope.
