After what seems like a long incubation the Rotating Tongues:2 comp is out and this week's show will feature several tracks. The two disc cd is packed full of good stuff, but I decided to start with some bands that I haven't had tracks to play on Hard Math in the past: Nollifur, Juntura and ATTN. I've met some of the people in these bands, but I'll let their music speak for itself... click on the links to hear more and find out more about each. Juntura will be playing a show with a couple little local bands called Finn Riggins and Built to Spill.  A Seasonal Disguise makes their debut on the show this week.... led by The Very Most's Zach Von House, their self-titled debut record is full of indie folk goodness. Also new to the show this week is Bacchanalia... a Moscow, ID folk band that accounts for the whereabouts of another Very Most member, Gia Trotter, in the mid-90's. Gia also hosts Go Northwest Young Man on (1 pm on Sundays, 2 pm on Thursday). As if that weren't enough... The Very Most themselves have a new split cd out with Portland's Lion and Eagles.... and another new Universal track... whew... It's pretty exciting that I'm 30-some shows in and still adding new bands and finding new things to hear from the past. THANKS to all the Idaho musicians who appear on the show and DOUBLE THANKS to those of you who have sent tracks or burned discs of material for the show!

I'm pleased to announce that I get to debut an exclusive track from the forthcoming album from The Universal this week... I got treated to a preview of about 90% of said record and it is THE SHIT. It was hard to select a track from the album's many highlights, but I'll let the one I chose speak for itself. Maybe I'll play another one next week. ALSO I'm pleased to be playing a track from The Very Most's Spring ep on Indiecater Records.... can't wait for Summer, Fall and Winter! New to this show this week is Thomas Paul whose debut cd "House on Fire" is just out... Thomas has played supporting roles in many local bands including Clock and currently in the revitalized eL Dopamine, but he's carved out his own niche as a hardworking solo performer. A solo performer that this shut-in has yet to see live. Shall we remedy that and you and me will meet in some non-smoky bar to catch one of his sets soon? One last note... I'm playing a track by an old local band called Draw this week. Draw were most notable for having Built to Spill cellist John McMahon in their ranks and they got a couple of sweet opening spots for BTS in the early 00's. They didn't do much for me, but I gave their disc a spin and couldn't help playing their goofy ode to Lawrence, Kansas were some of my family lives... I know kids who made the same trek to find William Burroughs that they sing about in their song (and it is fun to play non-Tom Petty songs with references to smoking joints on the radio).
