Since we’re unsure of live music venues in April, we’ve featured two local band’s new albums, so you can continue to support local music.
A new album by Dust Radio, “Zenith” is available as both a vinyl and a CD. Zenith is a Midwest rock and roll sound and includes songs such as “Hazy” and “I Saw You Walking.” The album, written by members of Dust Radio, includes James Nicholson, Aaron Winters, Rob Short, Chuck Stroud and Dan Tripp. Zenith was recorded at the Establishment Recording Studio, with Phil Young as engineer. Nicholson, co-founder of the band, says it’s been a childhood dream to cut a vinyl record. He says, “We’re old souls. We all listen to record players.” The album is available for digital download through various streaming devices.
Tom “T-Buck” Buckmiller, a blues singer and guitarist who plays solo acts and in the groups Tom Buckmiller and the Tone Tailors and Jimmy the Weasel, released his album, “River City Blues Attack.” Buckmiller, a Drake professor, wrote all the songs, ranging from jump blues, Elmore James style to the Rolling Stones. It features guest musicians including five Iowa Blues/Rock & Roll Music Hall of Famers: Bob Pace, Heath Allan, Philip Herbert, Dwight Dario, and Scot Sutherland. Matt Woods produced the album, which was recorded at Central Iowa Music Lab and Spacement Studio. Buy the album streaming: https://tombuckmiller.hearnow.com/. ♦
