Squeeze the Day(s) for 10/14-16

Music Tonight: This weekend is loaded with quality musical events. You can start things off tonight at the Southgate House as local singer/songwriter Jason Ludwig hosts a "two-fer" release(s) party, joined by special guests The Newbees and Sassy Molasses. From the previews on his Bandcamp site (listen — then purchase the records for just $5 — here), both Lost In Love and Tanglings are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime). The title track from Lost In Love is available as a free download on the Bandcamp site (the Tanglings' track "Bunkum" is also a freebie), but below is Ludwig doing an impromptu living-room performance of the track on piano. What a voice! And the songwriting and production on the new albums are equally enthralling, as Ludwig gravitates towards a more mature and melodic sound. Tonight's show kicks off at 9 p.m. and admission is $12. Those in attendance will receive a voucher for one of the free albums (and a discount coupon for the other). Click here to read C.A. MacConnell's recent interview with Ludwig for CityBeat.

If I keep pushing titles into the following week, I'll be reviewing a couple hundred CDs in December, which could actually work out pretty well. The release sheets the month before Christmas are skinnier than my 401K returns in 2008, so I'll need to hold back some material for the lean times. But for now, it's all feast and no famine. Let's check out new CDs from brakesbrakesbrakes, Booker T. (of MGs fame), Manchester Orchestra, Chairlift, Milk & Honey Band, supergroup Tinted Windows and Art Brut, plus classic vinyl from Matthew Sweet.
