Brought To You By The Letter…H

Comments Off

The Impound is working our way from A-Z with a choice selection each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.

Our “H” assortment begins shiftless in the 50s with The Hold Steady and winds through bucolic rock from Incredible String Band’s Mike Heron, Heart and the great Roy Harper, as well as nods to great contemporary bands like Howlin Rain and The Habit next to primo vintage fare from Richie Havens, Tom T. Hall and enduring DI love Robyn Hitchcock. This is an especially great letter in our library so we super sized this edition. Just doing our part to keep your ears pricked towards the right stuff…

Brought To You By The Letter…F

The Impound has been organizing its music archives, and we hit upon the idea of sharing tunes we dig in an alphabetical way. So, for the next few months we’ll be working our way from A-Z with a choice baker’s dozen or so installment each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.

Our “F” assortment includes DI staples Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac and Fairport Convention alongside some artists that deserve bigger audiences and critical recognition (The Features, Johnny Flynn and Liam Finn) as well as a monster track from one of our fave-o-rite cult U.K. acts (“Good News Bad News”) named Family. If just one listener decides to explore the Family catalog because of this mix we feel we’re doing God’s work here at the Impound (and you might well start with the killer 2 CD compilation In Their Own Time if you feel so inclined). Now, we’ll shut the “F” up and get rolling…

Uh, we were going to show you a nice picture of Furry Friends with a Fabulous Letter “F” but the Sesame Street gang is still pissed about Romney saying he’s pulling their funding. Looks like it’s gonna be a street fight with the GOP!

The Impound has been organizing its music archives, and we hit upon the idea of sharing tunes we dig in an alphabetical way. So, for the next few months we’ll be working our way from A-Z with a 15-track installment each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.

Our “E” assortment includes double shots from the uber-influential Brian Eno and modern day chooglin’ masters Endless Boogie as well as intriguing effervescence from Eels, Erland & The Carnival and more.

Our “D” selections starts rowdy but grows more contemplative as it goes. However, we do make room for some early slap ‘n’ tickle before naval gazing, including one of DI’s favorite tales of a (failed) threesome (Drive-By Truckers), before pondering why love’s got to be so sad…

Our “C” selections include some bubbling modern fare to get things rolling, some down in the cut classic rock (CCR, CSN, Neal Casal), an ode to hippy chix, a couple bands that never got their due during their active years (Citizens’ Utilities, Cosmic Rough Riders), and a bummer jewel from Cheap Trick to take us out.
