Black Stars - Raise Your Soul [Artist of the Month]
Posted 10/2/2013 6:33:00 PM

Let us present to you the Local Shots Artist of the Month for October: Black StarsThey sound like a mash-up of the Chili Peppers and Rage Against the Machine with a some extra funk groove thrown in. Today we played the song "Raise Your Soul" and you can listen to it now here on WMMR.com. Black Stars released their self-titled debut in March and they plan to put out more material in the near future, so be sure to keep an eye [or an ear?] out for that. For now you can check out show dates, videos and more on the Artist of the Month Page or on Facebook. Speaking of show dates, mark your calendar for November 5th, because every first Tuesday of the month the band hosts an open jam night at Dobbs on South Street [and it's totally free!].

It's Monday. You're bummed about it. How about some music to wake you up? We're here for ya: this Local Shots Podcast features Philly alt-rockers Love A Lunatic. Stream today's pick, "Breathe", and keep up with the band over at ReverbNation.

Here's 3 reasons we like Ruby The Hatchet: swirling riffs, haunting vocals, psychedelic jams. What more could you want? Hear the track "Paralyzed" on today's Local Shots Podcast- it's off their new Eliminator EP which is available on a variety of mediums, including vinyl and cassette. See them at North Star Bar on Friday May 9th (info here) and hear more at RubyTheHatchet.com.

Mo Lowda & The Humble is one of the coolest band names we've seen to date, which is why they are April's Local Shots Artist of the Month! ...Kidding- though the name is groovy, the music is a way better reason to check these guys out. The Temple U. trio gained a lot of traction after the release of their first full-length record Curse The Weather, building upon their established reputation as one of the best alt-rock bands in the city. Today we played the track "The Way Home"; stream it now, and get show dates plus a whole lot more on the Artist of the Month page.

For the Local Shots Artist of the Month feature, the Local Shots Podcast or for on-air consideration, we would love it if you'd send a CD to the station. Just circle one or two tracks that you like best or think would be best suited for WMMR. Put it on a CD and send it over. We try to listen to the CD's each day as they arrive, so it's easier for us to have a physical copy. Our address is below. Please include your website and any other information you would like us know know about your band. Details on upcoming shows are especially helpful.

Thanks very much! Looking forward to hearing it!
