TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb popped into the studio to record a new Key Studio Session, three and a half years after their first one.  This session includes a special track called “Blood in the Bathtub” that was recorded at the band’s EP release show at Johnny Brenda’s.  Stream and download the full set here.

This week, we also shared the Key Studio Sessions Vol. 10 compilation, recorded over the last few in the WXPN studios.  On it, you’ll find tracks from a wide-ranging spectrum of artists including The Hundred Acre Woods, Ginger Coyle, Trophy Wife and Elegant Animals.  Check it out below.

Eric Schuman invited Brooklyn psych-folk outfit Woods in for a live session to air on last night’s Indie Rock Hit Parade.  As a preview, The Key shared a recording of “Leaves Like Glass,” which was included on the band’s recent With Light and With Love LP.  Get a copy below.

Earlier this week, Helen Leicht talked with Philadelphia native Jason Karaban about his new song “Low Road.”  Karaban told Helen that this version was recorded with a number of his musician friends, including Sara Watkins (Nickel Creek) and Garrison Starr.  You can get a free download of the song below, and be on the look out for its appearance on EP from Karaban soon.

This week’s Folkadelphia session featured a performance by Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion.  The married pair have a lot of history in their blood – Sarah Lee is the daughter of Arlo Guthrie / granddaughter of Woody, and Irion is a grandnephew of John Steinbeck.  On their latest record Wassaic Way, they were joined by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, who helped create bold power pop / Americana twang.  Stream and download the live session below.
