Hey everyone! This week’s edition of New Music Monday will begin at 7:00 tonight! Listen in as I, Gus Knorr, the music director for Marquette Radio and all-around good guy, play some of the best new songs from recently-released albums for one hour. Tonight, I’ll start off with a couple of newer albums by artists who were big in the 1960s, as well as a few bands with a sound that in my view, appears to be greatly influenced by bands of that time. Also, a couple of bands with a connection to Milwaukee, and a rapper who appeared at Marquette two years ago, will be played as well. Stay tuned for that, and more, on the October 1st, 2012 edition of New Music Monday!

  • The first song tonight on New Music Monday is by the legendary Bob Dylan, off his new album, Tempest, which was released just three weeks ago; it’s “Soon After Midnight.”
  • Next is a song by John Cale, of 1960s rock band The Velvet Underground, his first solo album released in seven years. The song, the first track off his new album, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, is a collaboration with Danger Mouse, who produced the track, and is called “I Wanna Talk 2 U.”
  • The next song is a band that has been around for about 20 years, though draws much influence from blues and rock groups from the 1950s and ’60s, and also punk bands from the 1970s. I am talking about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, whose style can be classified as “punk blues,” and this song, “Bag of Bones,” is the first single off their new album, Meat and Bone.
  • Next up is a song by Steve Sullivan and the Factory, a band with varied influences, including folk, country, and R&B. The song is a slower one, off their new album Evil is a Man Made Thing; it’s “On a Night Like This.”
  • Moving on to a couple of Milwaukee-based bands, the next band is Trapper Schoepp and the Shades, an indie rock band with somewhat of a country sound. This song, off their album Run, Engine, Run, is called “So Long.”
  • Another band from Milwaukee is next, namely I’m Not a Pilot, who released their album Need Money for Rocket Fuel a few weeks ago; here’s “Where Is My Mind?”
  • The next song is by a band who was on tour with Minus the Bear recently, and performed in Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago. It’s rock band Caspian, with the song “Halls of the Summer,” off their new album Waking Season.
  • Next up is a song by rapper Lupe Fiasco, who actually performed the second verse of the next song at Marquette University two years ago. This song, which was just released off his new album, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, is “Strange Fruition.”
  • Switching gears a little bit to a new rock album, the next song is by Chicago-based garage rock band Empires. Off their new album Garage Hymns, it’s the first single from the album, “We Lost Magic.”
  • Next up is another song from a recently-released album by a rock band, namely Band of Horses, with the single “Knock Knock” from their album Mirage Rock.
  • The final song on this week’s episode of New Music Monday is by indie folk band Mumford & Sons, from their new album Babel. Fittingly enough, this song is also called “Babel.”

That’s it for New Music Monday this week, but stay tuned next week for another episode, hosted by one of the two assistants for Marquette Radio’s music department: Claire Kelly or Vince McCann. Thanks for listening!
