A little over a decade ago there was a band who formed under the name Palma Violets. They put out two albums, and toured for five years straight. In 2018 they amicably split as a band. Three of the members of that band would join Celia Archer of The Big Moon to form this one. Their first singles were amazing. Simply amazing. I really was looking forward to a proper full length from the band, and in the summer of 2022, this debut album from them was released. While I did listen to the album digitally for a long while, it wasn't until recently that I finally bought a copy of the album. This has led me to listen to the album even more. I thought I'd play it on this show, not only because it is a stellar debut release, and really great to listen to as an album. It's really because I just acquired a copy of it to play. Import vinyl and CD's aren't cheap these days, and I just couldn't afford to pay over $50 for the album. I did find it a bit cheaper than that, and I'm glad I could get it on the airwaves in its entirety, as it was meant to be heard. I hope a few unsuspecting listeners found it for the first time. Being an older person than these artists are, and as much as I liked the work Palma Violets, this material is much more haunting and mature, and much more to my liking for repeat listens. I can't wait to hear their next works. "It's a new beginning. No longer shall I be in emptiness to rust. But who am I to be ?" - Michael - MFL

29) "The Mid-Morning Recording"        Kate Bush-'The Director's Cut'
I'm looking forward to autumn. This has been a brutal summer for us here in South Texas. I usually associate Kate's music with cooler weather, and maybe I'm looking forward to cooler weather so much, that I started listening to Kate a little more this past week. One album I haven't heard too too much from her is this one. A revisit and recording of some tracks from the album's 'The Sensual World', and 'The Red Shoes'. It took me a while to get used to these versions of the songs, but as time goes on, I'm taking a liking to them more and more. I particularly like the version of "Top of the City", which is pretty much a studio take on the version that would later appear on her live album 'Before the Dawn'. Also, there are a few artists making re-recordings of past work. A new interpretation of classics. This wasn't the first album to do this, but Kate was on to something with this release. I'm sure there are things that some artists would change if they could, but Kate went ahead and did that. It doesn't replace the originals, but the opportunity does offer a glimpse of how an artists would reinterpret their own work later in life. "Take it up to the top of the city." - Michael - MFL
