2017 In Aspic - Episode 5

One of my funky friends calls his favorite month of the year Roctober, because this is the month when all the best bands seem to come to town and some of the best new music gets released.  At first, I thought it was a bit goofy, but after years of observing I get his point.

In the spirit of Roctober, here is a mix of some of my favorite rock tunes of the year.

I dig the way classic artists blend with new artists in this mix.  Robert Plant (singing a duet with Chrissie Hynde), The Jesus And Mary Chain, and Trent Reznor share this mix with Big Thief, Pissed Jeans, and Alexander F.

Hope you enjoy !
