“The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You”
-Title of Neko Case album

New music is difficult to find these days.  It used to be you could go to your neighborhood record store and browse for hours and find all sorts of new offerings.  Now, while everything, or just about everything is available everywhere, how do you winnow it down to music you really want to hear?  With over 75,000 albums released each year, even music addict Andrea Young can’t find the time to listen to everything.

This Aspenbeat show features a few of the new tracks that have cropped up on the radar.  All are new music from the past few years to current (it takes time for a song to get to a point where you can find it sometimes!).  Artists featured include Neko Case, Lake Street Dive, Broken Bells, Beck, Booker T with Kori Withers (Bill Wither’s daughter), Dean Jones featuring Aspenbeat artist Shamsi Ruhe, Walter Christopher, Ledisi, Sharon Jones and the Dap- Kings, Romeo Santos and The Rifters.  Also included is the new-to-me track from the 1970′s by Ann Peebles, “Trouble, Heartache, Sadness”, from Kevin Costner’s movie “Three Days To Kill”.

The show is broadcast as usual on Aspen Public Radio.  Aspen Public Radio, otherwise known as KAJX-FM, is beginning its’ Winter Pledge Drive this week.  The freedom to play what we want to play when we want to play it on Aspen Public Radio is actually paid for by people just like YOU who pledge their support to the station.  Please pick up the phone and call 970-920-9000 or get on line at  Keep the music going!!
