As Spring emerges from the snow and the snow melts into the earth and the rivers run down to the river and on into the Sound, we find the pulse and pace of life have quickened, but to what end? That is a question to ponder as Bubble Wrap gently escorts you through the earliest days of this virginally new season. Surely this involves music, no? And so it does, from The Dowling Poole and Snapped Ankles to the Armoires and Parker Milsap. In short, a motley assortment of late winter/ early spring releases.
The goal of this week’s Bubble Wrap show was relaxation and joy. The new music was thin so we went with old stuff, for the most part. Excepting Bootsy, who is old and new at the same time — his new record just came out and, friends, he’s still got it. You will see. The new single is “Funktropolis.” Find it under Funk at your favorite record emporium.
