Greetings from Laurel Canyon!
The lazy days of summer are among us and last night a mild breeze rolled through the canyon as Mercury (the messenger planet) went “retro” as in retrograde.
All these signs from nature breezing about, I’m once again reminded of my simple mission; to create a dope “mix” of classics and great new bands. While I put this show together I was day dreaming about rock shows of summer’s past. Like that hot summer night in 1973 when Sly and Family Stone never showed up to take us higher.
In the end, this week’s Idelic Hour became about the bands of 2010 hitting summer tour stages to promote their fall releases. PO PO, Pete Yorn, No Age, Dearhunter, Damien Jurardo, Black Angels, The Sister Ruby Band, Wild Nothing and Autolux.
So while it’s warm, catch a show, take off your shirt and wave it in the air. Fall is around the corner.
Streaming and The Idelic “hit of the week” Fitz and the Tantrums' Dear Mr. President keeps us dancing like the summer of '73!

Due to the generic nature a blog, it’s rather incumbent upon postings to be...well, written.
But his morning, instead of talking about music, I’ll let the music do the talking.
We’ll get back to being wordy on Monday.
Helen Merrill - You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To (Mp3)
Sara Vaughn - It's De-Lovely (Mp3)
