It's already looking like 2015 is going to be another great year in music. On this Tuesday's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be looking at some of the albums I can't wait to drop in 2015.
The Mighty Sceptres: A duo composed of guitarist Nick Radford and vocalist Angeline Morrison. Together they play both floor-shaking and sentimental soul & jump blues. I loved their earlier collaborations on Radford's solo project, Frootful, so I'm real excited to hear their first full length record together: All Hail The Mighty Scepters!. Out Feb 24th on Ubiquity Records.
Modest Mouse: The Northwest indie rockers are back (and, yeah, I know I put them on this same list for 2014, but it's for real this time guys, I swear!). On March 3rd they will release their first album together in eight years: Strangers To Ourselves.
Dead Weather: The gritty blues rock side-project from Jack White will be back with a yet-to-be-named third full-length album. They released two 45s last year with singles off the new album and they're both rock solid. No word on release date.
Opening Segment of the show-How to Restore the Body's Natural Balance with Dr. Suhas G. Kshirsagar
And our second segment-"Iowa Cooks"-Astred Griffin Wants YOU to Eat Her Quiche!
Our LIVE show at Green Building Supply Tuesday night featured the creative mind and cooking skills of Astred Griffin. On the menu: quiche in both veggie and vegan versions and both iterations were organic and gluten-free. Vegan quiche is something I had never tried, but Astred's version was great.

Happy new year, Fairfield!
For the very first show in 2015 I prepared a countdown of my personal favourites of last years K-POP releases.
What would be a nicer way to start off the new year than to recall the most beautiful music memories of the old one?
Here's hoping that Santy Claus and Baby New Year have both been very very good to you. The Jolly Man put a lot of really nice things under the tree for me(including the Batman box set--source of all my childhood weirdness). And NYE we had a real rock and roll party in Chicago with our friends from Austin, Texas the Bellfuries. Along the way I have been blessed with a fistful of family stories and memories---fuel for The Feed Store. Hope y'all can come along for the ride. Thursdays at 10AM CST and Sundays at Noon CST.
Held over at the Orpheum is The Theory Of Everything, included on "The Independent's" list of New Year's films to see: "it’s a moving, life-affirming portrayal of the eminent scientist’s life (Steven Hawking) from his student days at Cambridge to receiving his Companion of Honour from the Queen." You'll also enjoy Eddie Redmayne's Oscar nominated-to-be performance.
Al Green, Craig Stamps and I saw The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies at the historic State Theatre in Washington (see pic). It was their first time back in 2-3 decades. The State first opened in 1893. Therefore, I say the 1902 pioneer film A Trip To The Moon so wonderfully realized in the must-see (in 3D, IMO) 2011 film Hugo, starring Ben Kingsley as Georges Méliès, was shown as a new release feature film sometime early in the century at the State. They still feature a curtain rising before every show. How cool is that? From my perspective, Brother Al had a joyful reaction. And of course Brother Chris has seen The Battle Of The Five Armies more than once.
We'll also mention new releases, including young talented Director J.C. Chandor's (All Is Lost; Margin Call) latest well-reviewed film: A Most Violent Year ; some of 2014's highest rated films and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch, special guest Al Green and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Friday 12:30pm, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "One day I'll remember. Remember everything that happened: the good, the bad, those who survived... and those that did not." - Bilbo Baggins
