WEHM’s New Release Tuesdays March 2013

March picks for 92.9 and 96.9 WEHM New Release Tuesdays (airing every Tuesday from 9-10pm) are veterans with real staying power.

The six-decade career of singer/songwriter Boz Scaggs continues with the album Memphis and the song “Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl.” Scaggs expertly blends genres with African-esque polyrhythms and his soulful, distinct vocals backed by a gospel choir.

British synthpop superstars Depeche Mode return with Delta Machine and its leadoff single “Heaven.” It is classic DM, a haunting minor key tune with an intricate drum machine rhythm, paired with wistful, heart-wrenching vocals and assertive, abrasive guitar.

Musical chameleon David Bowie reappears with The Next Day and the track “Where Are We Now?” The Thin White Duke croons philosophically over a mellow, ambient backing track featuring abundant synth pads and orchestral embellishments, building up to a grand conclusion.
