Snake Hip Waltz - Episode 1

Welcome, everybody, to Snake Hip Waltz, a mixtape series that chronicles the best new music of 2019.  Over the coming year, I plan to release ten episodes of eclectic music ranging from indie and alternative to americana and folk to R&B and soul.

This first episode offers all of the above.  It is mellower than many of my mixes but that should not deter you.  These songs are incredible.  I dare you to listen to Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson's cover of Kris Kristofferson's classic For The Good Times without getting chills.  Same for Jessica Pratt's throwback pop stylings on Poly Blue.

The mix also marks the return of Joe Jackson, covers of songs by Velvet Underground and Dolly Parton, and the incomparable soul of Lee Fields.

It is hard to believe that, six weeks into this new year, there are so many fabulous tunes.

I hope you dig my mix and stay tuned for more...
