New Tunes at Two Week of 4/5: Jason Ringenberg, Nuevo, Sunny War, and David Olney & Anna Kaye

Join us for New Tunes at Two Monday through Thursday during the 2pm hour and we'll check out these new tunes together. 

Monday: Jason Ringenberg – Rhinestoned
The cow-punk Scorcher is back, with songs ranging from Nashville music history, to the Civil Rights Movement, to an old Lakota/Oglala legend.

Tuesday: Nuevo – Nuevo
Nuevo is the brainchild of Dante Schwebel who you might know from Hacienda, City & Colour and Dan Auerbach's band, and Andrew Trube from Greyhounds and JJ Grey & MOFRO. They've dreamed up a new take on Tex-Mex rock and soul.

 

Wednesday: Sunny War – Simple Syrup
“Tricky acoustic-guitar parts that sound more than a little like such British pickers as Richard Thompson and Bert Jansch… And her vocals boast the bluesy alto of a Meshell Ndegeocello or Joan Armatrading.” –Paste

 

Thursday: David Olney & Anana Kaye
This is the final studio album from one of Nashville’s most beloved songwriters, in collaboration with Anana Kaye and Irakli Gabriel, both from Georgia (Eastern Europe).

Eschewing his mother’s taste for easy listening music early on, Martin Anderson was raised on his dad’s love for jazz, his brother’s Beatles/classic rock LP’s, and the bluegrass and Top 40 radio of the D.C. area. He played trombone all through high school, but upon starting college decided to spin the music of others instead, so he began volunteering for the University of Delaware’s WXDR/WVUD overnight and morning mixes. He promptly put his B.A. in American History to use by moving to Eugene, Oregon, where he spent the 90’s working in natural foods, environmental causes, and above all, public radio. He hosted various folk, world, Triple-A, and other shows at KLCC, and started a “Miles of Bluegrass” show at KRVM. After two years working underwriting sales and various music and public affairs programs at KHSU in Arcata, CA, Martin joined WNCW in 2001 as your weekday morning host. He loves interviewing the many talented musicians who come to Studio B, stretching out with the many styles ‘NCW embraces, and reflecting the themes of listeners, events of the day, and our beautiful Southern Appalachian landscape. As Music Director, he books our live sessions, keeps in touch with the record labels and promoters that send us new music, and programs various features heard throughout the week, from new music spotlights to The Spindale Cycle. When not at the station, he enjoys hiking, gardening, traveling, history, and raising his daughter on good music and more.
