November 2020 — “Hey, America”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

This month’s mix is overstuffed, a few different threads woven together haphazardly. You know, like now. The main theme, lest it be missed, is guitars.

Later in the year I’ll list my favorite releases of the year, but I should mention now that my favorite and most-listened-two records this year are Eugene McDaniels’s Outlaw and Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse. Those albums, released in 1970 and 1971 respectively, work just as well fifty years later. I heard the track that opens this mix for the first time this summer on a show Jeff Parker put together; tellingly, he crops up on NTS all the time.

As always, h/t to Naomi Zeichner’s show this month, which was a balm.
