Move It

Sometimes it’s old school country twang. Sometimes it’s ragtime ballads. Sometimes it’s classic R&B. Sometimes it’s metal. This week it’s an hour of music you can move to. House, dub, dance. I think you’ll like it.

Gentle Hands of January

The Earth cranes its neck and begins its slow motion nod back towards the star that heats its ever-changing face. Every rotation we feel it just a little more. From under the heavy clouds that make their shadows, we can feel it, and we wont stop feeling it.
