New Orleans

This playlist focusing on the music of New Orleans is in observation of the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. It speaks to the fact that the music of that city is as much about booty bass as it is about big brass -- which is not to say that, in certain instances, those two strands of influence collide and procreate in exciting ways. Also, some mysticism, and some Bob Dylan. Plus Clams Casino, The Meters, Dr. John, Li'l Wayne, Mystikal, Lee Dorsey, Prefuse 73, 504 Boyz, Juvenile, Jay Electronica, Ricky B, Daniel Lanois, Jeff Buckley, The Afghan Whigs, David Crosby, Professor Longhair, others.



Teenage Kicks


Teenage Kicks is hosted by Alec Hanley Bemis, co-founder of New York's Brassland label and a producer who conceives and manages creative projects that make a global impact. Each episode is about an hour long. The musical themes may be clearer to him than they are to you but the selections will inevitably be intense and deeply felt.
