KUSH music keeps on challenging the status quo of country/Americana radio by adding the new album, Pony, by Orville Peck. Reminiscent of Roy Orbison and/or Depeche Mode, Peck’s vocals soar through interesting and dynamic lyrics while big sky twangy guitars provide the sonic landscape. New songs from the Lumineers (“Gloria”), Shook Twins (“What Have We Done”) and Adam Carroll (“This Old Garage”) round out Americana adds this week. This Texas category lights up with a new single from San Antonio, TX artist Marcy Grace (“El Camino”). The pop country gets a sunny day single from Southern Halo (“Sunshine”) and Morrissey (speaking of The Smiths) lands at the KUSH again with his cover of of the 1969 smash by the 5th Dimension, “Wedding Bell Blues,” featuring Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day fame. KUSH turns your ears on!
