Rarity Rock Radio


Tune in for Rarity Rock Radio’s Top 10 Favorites of the Month for January 2024 playing daily at 9am, Noon, and 6pm MST, including the following new music gems:

“Small Sanctuary” – Tycho (a brand new song)

According to the artist, “Innocent and unburdened by the trappings of modern life, children are a pure expression of the human condition. To watch them grow and learn is to witness a sanctuary for the human spirit. I wrote this song for my daughter who brings me limitless joy and inspiration.”

“Dream Big” – Bob Vylan (from upcoming new album ‘Humble As The Sun’)

According to NME, “The fierce new track was inspired by the younger self and serves as a tribute to Bobby Vylan’s daughter, nieces and nephews, whose backing vocals feature on the chorus. “As I see them growing and finding things they’re passionate about, it reminds me how important it is to continue having those childlike dreams of what we can accomplish in our lives,” Bobby Vylan said in a statement.”

“Right Side of History” – Dhani Harrison (from new album ‘INNERSTANDING’)

Said Harrison in a press statement, “Here we are in a new world and here is the new album that has come forth from it.” According to American Songwriter, “The new album was produced by Harrison and co-mixed by Paul Hicks, who has worked with both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones on previous projects.”

“Cigarette Love” – The Troumatics

According to the artist, “This song is about tough girls and the nerdy nice guys that fall in love with them. Todd Pipes from Deep Blue Something sings background vocals and plays bass guitar, which was pretty cool of him to do with us.”

“Treat Me Like An Animal” – The Black Vultures Band

According to RAMzine, “The band – featuring singer/rhythm guitarist Huw Williams, lead guitarist Aled Owen Jones, bass and backing vocals Evan Bevis-Knowles and drummer Brandon Pritchard – took their name from bands who’ve influenced them, notably The Black Crowes, Black Sabbath and Them Crooked Vultures.”

“Bubblegum Dog” – MGMT (from upcoming new album ‘Loss Of Life’)

“Seasons greetings, earthlings. Your psychedelic breakfast today is a hearty bowl of grungey glam-rock flakes, courtesy of the new MGMT single “Bubblegum Dog” from the forthcoming LP Loss Of Life. Break out your flannel (sheets) and (high-heeled) combat boots, dust off grandpa’s hanky and get ready to rock, MGMT style.”

“Phone Machine” – HotWax (from ‘Invite me, kindly’)

According to Kerrang!, “Vocalist Tallulah says the five-track record “felt really good” to write, and that “it all came together really quickly and the majority of the songs just fell into place”. “I felt I had lots of phrases saved up in my head that I couldn’t wait to put into my lyrics,” Tallulah continues. “The EP looks at themes of acceptance to people who have hurt you before, letting your doubts leave you and feeling free. Playing these songs live this summer has been so refreshing, I still feel so passionately about a lot of the lyrics, which makes it feel very therapeutic to perform. Working with Alan Moulder on recording the EP was amazing, he was so open to our ideas and really helped our vision come to life.””

“Say It Like You Mean It” – Sleater-Kinney (from upcoming new album ‘Little Rope’)

According to The Line of Best Fit, “Recorded at Flora Recording and Playback in Portland, Oregon with Grammy-winning producer John Congleton, Little Rope is one of the most honest and soul-baring albums by Sleater-Kinney.”

“Speak To Me” – Helen Counts Music

Helen is an Indie singer/songwriter based in Madison, Wisconsin, US. Her latest singles ‘Speak to Me’ and ‘I Wanna Fly’ released on 12/11/2023 have the solid harmonies and vivid lyrics that are the cornerstones of her unique sound. She works closely with Trystan Matthews, a talented producer from Demo My SongⓇ in New York, NY. She hopes her music has an impact on the listener long after the song ends.

“I Live in a Small Town” – Flyying Colours (from ‘You Never Know’ album)

According to Echoes and Dust, “‘I Live In a Small Town’ percolates along sweetly and drifts into the stupendous ‘Do You Feel the Same’, with its woozy backdrop in concert with some nicely rendered vocals. The bass and drums on this are killing it and elevate it to 11. In essence, this is another terrific offering in the Flyying Colours catalog.”

Plus Blast From The Past song: “This Is Your Life (Live)” – The Killers
