John The Conqueror - Waking Up To You
Posted 2/6/2014 5:52:00 PM

The Local Shots Artist of the Month for February is John The Conqueror! Each song of theirs is a "blend of the southern rock from their childhoods, the punk of their adolescence and the blues and soul they had always held closely". In other words, it's awesome. Learn more by following them on Twitter and Facebook, and of course you can stream their music anytime on the Artist of the Month page. Yesterday we played "Waking Up To You" the third track off JTC's brand new record The Good Life, due out later this month, and you can hear it now on the podcast.

Ruby The Hatchet has taken over as the Local Shots Artist of the Month for July! Their brand of heavy, psychedlic rock sounds like a fuzzed out Sabbath. It's a beautiful thing. Today we played the song "Paralyzed" from their Eliminator EP, which you can get on blood red or clear vinyl via their Bandcamp page. You can also stream the songs on the Artist Of The Month page. Ruby The Hatchet is working on an LP that's expected to be released in the fall; get updates on Facebook and Twitter.

The Local Shots Podcast returns with a band called The Madeleine Haze. The song "Nightmares And Dreamscapes" balances grunge and progressive rock, and you can stream it now here on WMMR.com. Check out Facebook for details on their upcoming album release and their show at The Grape Room on July 12th. 

The Loud Company delivers the catchy sounds you'll hear on today's Local Shots Podcast. Today's pick "Airwaves" will have you singing along with the Quakertown four-piece. Grab both of their EPs (name-your-price!) on bandcamp, and then go check them out on Saturday 7/5 at Kung Fu Neckie.

The Local Shots Podcast will be taking a brief vacation, but we'll be back and better than ever very soon. Get ready to hear more of Philly's finest right here on WMMR.com!

In a band? Want to be involved with Jaxon's Local Shots?

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!
