PJ Fresh

I have been immersing myself in waves of music promos this week. A long overdue but worthwhile dive. Lots of fantastic stuff! On tonight’s Twisted Groove I play an array of music styles with new, newish and reissues. I’m very excited to play a track from the newly reissued Pharoah Sanders record, Pharoah, and something off of PJ Harvey’s release I Inside The Old Year Dying. I’ll will also play tracks from John Carroll Kirby, The New Pornographers, Thundercat/Tame Impala, Witch, Guided By Voices, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Speedy Ortiz, Blondshell, Tony Allen/Adrian Younge, Everything But The Girl and more.
