Sam Hoffman – Fairweather

Fairweather by Sam Hoffman On episode 120 of the WOTT Music podcast we played “December”, the lead track from Sam Hoffman’s debut album, Fairweather, and, surprise!, we liked it.

Okey Dokey – “Wait on Me”

Now, Gilbert […]

The Katies – “White Light”

Way back in 1999, The Katies released a self-titled album on Elektra / Spongebath Records. They were a staple of the Murfreesboro rock scene at the time and had a reputation for a charged live show. After touring on the album and relocating to LA, the band ultimately dissolved in the early 2000’s. Brothers Jason […]
