Release Radar 10/22/21 - My Morning Jacket vs Felly
This week my #RADAR is on fire with My Morning Jacket’s ninth studio album. The self-titled My Morning Jacket is the first batch of new songs in six years. “In Color,” the third single, feels a bit like the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd, so let the jams begin. I can’t wait to pick it... Read more »

Release Radar 8/20/21 - Illuminati Hotties vs Mat Kearney
Felly continues to expand his craft, sharpening his songwriting skills. On “Still Young” he delivers a high-pitched falsetto mid-song that steals the show. Then, seconds later, there’s a Santana-like guitar riff that drives the song home with fervor. He’s always bringing something new, unlike so many artists in hip hop. After coming off as a...

We are a week away from Christmas, and I’m nearing the completion of a personal goal.

Release Radar 11/27/20- Felly vs Chet Baker
What is one of your greatest Christmas treasures? That is the question our church was asking this week, and it got me thinking about my life, and what I treasure. As far as decorations for the holidays go, we have a lot of stuff but much of it is not important or sentimental. I’ll leave... Read more »
