The Besnard Lakes

So much for getting things done early.

I had an entire playlist of favorites from the archives put together a week ahead of time—and decided to trash it at the last minute. Why? Because I kept discovering great new tracks all week long. And, I’ll tell ya… they are great!

We’ll celebrate Neil Young‘s 75th birthday with a track from his latest release, a live version of Return to Greendale, and also bring you the latest by Arkells, The Besnard Lakes, Burning Nickels, Digawolf, Good Kid, Jeen, Leif Vollebekk, Like a Motorcycle, Lumière, Maybe Babs, Outer Rooms, Peach Luffe, PUP, Rich Aucoin, The Smallest One, Tired Kid, The Weeknd (with Kenny G, if you can believe it), and Yukon Blonde!
