Again, apologies for the intermittent nature of this section for the next month or two. I’m here this week and so are a few new records, however, so let’s not waste any more time on pleasantries (or lack thereof.) WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is Old Star (Peaceville Records), the new LP from […]
