The Starter Playlist & Players


TA-PlatterLogo.jpg New year and new music from some fantastic emerging, indie and unsigned artists give us a great start to 2017. When you go to a restaurant and you want to know what’s on the menu, you order the starter. Guess where’s usually found? In the Appetizer section. That’s what’s on the menu this week here too.

The menu I’m talking about is both what we serve thematically here on the show, as well as a starter for you to dive into some great albums to add to your music collection.

Making their debut on our show are new artists and albums from Americana band Molsky’s Mountain Drifters and D.B. Bryant’s stunning electric guitar.

We’ll also showcase more of the best albums from 2016 like Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop’s Love Letter For Fire, Aaron Lee Tasjan’s Silver Tears, and much more. Enjoy!
