What the RCU Community is Listening to (Jan. 2021)

Here’s a quick check in to what some of the RCU Patrons have been listening to this month…

Nick said “Me Especially,” by Dawes, “Colors” by Black Pumas and Langhorn Slim’s “Summer Days” have been in constant rotation for him lately.

Meanwhile, Megan writes that she’s been finding herself combing back to the self-titled EP (or EP 1, as it’s titled on Bandcamp) by Asbury Park garage rockers Daddies, Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher and The Nude Party’s 2018 self-titled album in the last month.

Lastly, newcomer Kenneth has been digging Arnold Dreyblatt’s Star Trap, Julius Hemphill’s classic 1972 LP, Dogon A.D. recently, along with one of my top favorite records of the last year, the Gunn Truscinski Duo’s brilliant Soundkeeper album.

Big thanks to those from the Patreon community for your support and for giving us a taste of what you’ve been listening to this month.
