First off, take note, Boston: The next edition of NEW MUSIC NIGHT, during which Jay Clicky Clicky and myself take to the River Gods DJ booth in Cambridge and play nothing but carefully-chosen new songs, takes place this coming Thursday, May 24th, 2012. Got it? Good.
The last time our every-other-month event went down, I was sadly absent *. Yes, among the casualties of the soul-crushing sickness I came down with in mid-March was my planned appearance at that 5th edition of NMN, but before I succumbed, I was able to pull together a pretty spiffy setlist, if I do say so myself. And I do. I spent a ton of time gathering these all-new tracks, perfectly sequenced for her and his pleasure, but sharing them was, alas, not meant to be. Not going to let that stop me from posting it here, though.
What follows is what you would've heard, had I not been at home shivering beneath the covers. Some of these may show up in my playlist on Thursday, but a ton of great new stuff has come out since then, so who knows. Do join us, won't you?
( * My thanks to WMBR DJ/Pipeline host Jeff Breeze for filling in, by the way... the pinch hit was very much appreciated. For Jay's playlists from NMN-V, head over to Clicky Clicky.)
