Okay sorry this Valentines Edition of Music Mondays is running a little on the later side!! I realized after putting it together that the common thread of my selections (besides the phenomenal Cyndi Lauper video) is that they are all bands who Nana Grizol has played with on tour. also, Jared from Witches, Matte, who, um, well he's closely connected to Al Scorch, and Dean who made the artwork for the New Socks cd all live together. So there. Happy Valentines Day...

Witches - Forever LP

This is the first full length album by the band Witches made up of my buddies from my hometown of Athens, GA. It is out in the LP format on Bakery Outlet Records and it is very good. The song i have chosen for you to listen to is called "Feed" and for most of it it's just Cara Satalino playing guitar and singing. You can listen to her music in the download section of IYMI.

New Socks - Picture Story Friends Goodbye

New Socks are an awesome band from Geneseo, NY, even though two of the three of them have moved away, one of them being my friend Becky who lives here in athens now. This is their album which they finished this year. I just realized it's not free but it is CHEEP cheap. so I recommend checking it out.

Get Psyched About This

Al Scorch and His Country Soul Ensemble

They are working on THEIR first full length record presently. Here is a YouTube video of them performing one of THEIR songs which will probably be on this album. This was filmed last winter in Chicago at the empty bottle.
