Our new Best In Show is “Cold Cold Cold” by Cage The Elephant. Although the psych-tinged song first appeared on their 2015 album, Tell Me I’m Pretty (produced by Dan Auerbach), they’ve recently been nominated for a Grammy, and this video is brand new. For more information visit cagetheelephant.com.
Our final Best In Show for 2016 comes from El Michels Affair featuring The Shacks with “Strange Boy.” Enchanting to say the least. For more information visit bigcrownrecords.com/artists/the-shacks. We sincerely thank you, our listeners, for tuning in throughout the year. We wish you all a very happy holiday season. And here’s to a very happy new year! See you on the other side…
As the year winds down its getting difficult to squeeze in all of our choices for the weekly Best In Show. This week’s winner in the survival of the musical fittest, is Cloud Nothings with “Modern Act.” It will be on the Cleveland-based band’s fourth album, Life Without Sound, due out in January on the Car Park label. For more info visit cloudnothings.com.
Our latest Best In Show is from Mr. Lee Fields. “Special Night” is the title cut from his latest album which is available now. If you’re a fan of Sharon Jones & Charles Bradley, and you’re not familiar with what Lee does, do yourself a favor and check it out. You won’t be sorry.

This week’s Best In Show contains lots of something we’re direly in need of – easy going good feelings! “You Can Feel It” is very much in the West Coast pop vein (i.e. yacht rock), and we love Young Gun Silver Fox for it. It can be found on their album West End Coast, available now on Wax Poetic Records. For more info visit facebook.com/younggunsilverfox.
