Wick’s Picks: January 7-13

By Matt Wickstrom

Last week was the debut episode of “Wick’s Picks” on Lexington Community Radio, 93.9 WLXU. In the episode I showcased some of my favorite new music to hit the airwaves in 2017, ranging from Americana songsmiths Tyler Childers and Cory Branan to indie acts such as Arcade Fire and Father John Misty.

Listen to an archived recording of last week’s show and be sure to tune in every Wednesday from 9-10 a.m. on the radio or at lexingtoncommunityradio.org. Next week (Jan. 10) I’ll be spinning music from artists you’ll be able to catch in town the following weekend including The Local Honeys, Turkuaz, John Moreland and more.
