Live Ledge #293: Best of 2017 (So Far)

What a great year for music! This has easily been a bonanza for music fans. Every week there seems to be a handful of fabulout rock, punk, and Americana.

With this being the last day of June, it seemed obvious to do a show based on the highlights of the year so far. Who knew this would turn out to be an almost 3 hour show? Tons of legends put out their best records in years (Ray Davies, John Wesleyl Harding, Wire, Son Volt), and they were accompanied by new acts just as strong (Buttertones, Tangerines, Courtneys).

And this is by no means a complete list. Many great records were set aside for this show, and this new release day saw more records that I didn't get a chance to sample before tonight's broadcast.

So please use this as a method to find brand new records. Then show your support by purchasing said records to guarantee that these acts can continue to create. That's how we keep this ball rolling.
