Jeriney is the host of 96.5FM's "Homegrown Buzz," which is the last man standing in terms of your chance to regularly hear local music featured on the radio (yes, yes -- KJHK has it in rotation, but Plow the Fields died a slow death several years ago, and the station no longer has a showcase). The program features tons of in-studio guests, and spotlights all kinds of local artists every Sunday evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Jeriney was kind enough to put together a playlist of some local tracks that she's into right now.
This was a lot harder than I thought it would be!! There are so many great songs that it was very difficult to narrow it down to just a few. Here we go...some of the local songs I'm listening to (in no particular order!).
Olympic Size, "Fuego"
This song is haunting. As soon as it starts with the guitar and then the rest of the band joins in it gives me goose bumps! Download track
Cowboy Indian Bear, "Mathematicians/Colour"
One word....harmony! These guys know exactly what they are doing. Download track
Waiting for Signal, "New ork"
From the first moment I heard this song live I've loved it! It's just a great, straight forward rock song. Download track
Capybara, "The Wimp"
When this song is on you can't help but turn it all the way up and start dancing! Download track
Dreams Are For Rookies, "Don't Judge Me (Cause I'm A Sassy Brown Girl)"
I don't know what it is about this song, but it's been stuck in my head for weeks! There's so much feeling in the lyrics and a great hook. Download track
Soft Reeds, "This Affair"
This is a band that I heard about over and over and have just recently had the privilege of seeing live. Amazing! Download track
Heroes & Villains, "Second Thoughts"
It amazes me what these guys do as a 3 piece. Every time you listen to it you'll hear something new and will find yourself singing it for days. Download track
Says Jeriney: "I have to do one more so it will be even!"
Hidden Pictures, "Anne Apparently"
This song will just make you happy! I love that it's just a simple beat and could listen to it over and over. Download track
"I could keep going and going and going...but I'll spare you!"
