It has been another busy month when it comes to alternative music releases.  Plenty of new stuff to talk about, plus some covers and rereleases of some old favorites, too.  Every Sunday night we give you a full hour of the new stuff on our specialty show, Sunday Studio Cuts.  Thanks to our friends at Darkside Records, Val will give you an inside look at new tracks from some of your favorite artists, and maybe even give you a new artist or two to add to your favorites list.

Here's some highlights from the past few Sunday Studio Cuts shows!


Big things from Radiohead this month - on November 5th they released Kid Amnesiae,  a combo reissue of Kid A (1999) and Amnesia (2000).  The 3 disc set has some previously unreleased material, remakes, and a new track as well.


Avril Lavigne:  Bite Me (f. Travis Barker)

New to Travis Barker's record label, DTA Records, Avril has released a new song featuring the infamous Blink 182 drummer.  Bite Me talks about second chances, knowing your worth, and really brings us back to the early Avril Lavigne pop-punk days.

Portugal. The Man:  Steal My Sunshine

Love a good cover, especially of a popular '90's tune.  Portugal. The Man, with help from Cherry Glazerr, takes on Len's Steal My Sunshine.  Alongside this cover, they also released a cover of Eels Novocaine For The Soul, and let us know about an early 2022 co-headlining tour with alt-J.

Stabbing Westward:  I Am Nothing

Hard to believe it has been 20 years since a full-length Stabbing Westward album, but they're back with new music and we are loving the single, I Am Nothing, which has an amazing drum track.  The new album, Chasing Ghosts, will be out on March 18, 2022.


We'll have more new music for you this, and every Sunday night on Sunday Studio Cuts, and of course, don't forget to listen to our Studio Cuts Podcast for interviews with some of the artists we feature on the show.  Until next time....
