Fresh Tracks Friday | April 5, 2024

While our spring weather may be as unpredictable as a shuffled playlist, our Fresh Tracks selections are always carefully curated and intentionally eclectic. This week's featured artists include UB40, Sam Morrow, and Randy Carson with Willie Nelson among many others. It's all right here and fresh on KPCW!

9 a.m. - Royal & the Serpent & GAYLE - kinda smacks
Los Angeles-based Ryan Santiago is the musical creative behind Royal & The Serpent. Her style has been described as "dramatic alt-electro-pop." This fresh track feels like a good way to start your Friday - give it a listen.

10 a.m. - The Day - Sidelines
The Day are a duo separated by time and space, as one member is in Belgium and the other in Germany. In their musical collaboration, "Sidelines," they demonstrate "a sparse, springy and rapturous dynamic alternates with a wildly imaginative dream-pop harmony."

11 a.m. - Staycation - Back
Heavily inspired by alternative pop/indie rock bands and artists like Rex Orange County, Parcels, Dayglow, and Mac Demarco — Salt Lake City band Staycation is one that thrives on great music, hanging out, and enjoying the simple things in life. This is off their 2024 self-titled album "Staycation."

1 p.m. - Britti - There Ain't Nothing
Singer-songwriter Britti recently released her first album, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. The album is titled "Hello, I'm Britti," and it is a love letter to her adopted home of New Orleans.

2 p.m. - Royal Bliss - Never (Acoustic)
Royal Bliss is a locally-based rock band formed in 1997 in Salt Lake City. They have new music coming out, including this fresh single. If you dig the track or the band, you should know that Royal Bliss will be performing live on Main Street Park City tonight at The Cabin!

3 p.m. - Sam Morrow - Searching for Paradise
Sam Morrow is working out his own version of modern-day American roots music: a mix of roadhouse rock & roll, bluesy R&B, and country-fried funky-tonk, driven by groove, grease, and guitars! His new album "On The Ride Here" is out now, and here's one of his newest tracks.

4 p.m. - UB40 - Home
UB40 is back in action! They have a new album coming out called "UB45." Where did the name UB40 come from? When the original band members got together in 1978, they were all unemployed and collecting unemployment benefits ("the dole") with the government issued UB40 card. UB40 will be performing here in town at the Amphitheatre at Canyons Village on July 19th.

5 p.m. - Chris O'Leary - Lost My Mind
Chris O'Leary’s musical background includes duties as lead singer and front man for Levon Helm’s band, The Barnburners. O'Leary is a devastatingly soulful vocalist, dynamic harmonica master and superlative songwriter, placing him among the blues and roots world's most talented unsung heroes.

6 p.m. - Randy Carson & Willie Nelson - I Gotta Get Drunk
It's time for a Friday night drinking song — this one, a duet by Willie Nelson and Randy Carson. You all know who Willie Nelson is...Randy Carson comes from deep Texas Country Music roots. Randy’s dad “Little Joe Carson”, was and still is, one of the most respected country singers from Texas. This track is off Randy Carson's new "Life Is Good" album.

7 p.m. - Seth Walker - Take Me to the River
Seth Walker is often noted as one of the most prolific contemporary Americana artists on the scene today. He’s a multi-dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. You could say this is a remake of the 1978 Talking Heads classic, but did you know it was originally recorded by Al Green in 1974? Many other bands have covered it since then.

8 p.m. - Two Door Cinema Club - Happy Customers
Two Door Cinema Club are an Irish band, formed in 2007, from Bangor, County Down, Ireland. After recently appearing on Late Night with Seth Myers, Two Door Cinema Club will be in concert at The Union — a venue in Salt Lake City — on Friday, May 24th.

9 p.m. - Chicano Batman - Fly
Chicano Batman have a new album coming out called "Notebook Fantasy." The band is a funky trio, each member with their own unique style, whose music is heavily influenced by their experiences growing up Latino in Los Angeles. Chicano Batman will be live at The Depot in downtown Salt Lake on June 24th.
