Pandemic presents:

YESH is a singer/multi-faceted artist hailing out of NYC, and her most recent singles (“Glass” & “Amala”) have been two of my favorites of the most recent months or so. Before things got weird, I reached out to Mountain from PIQUE to get ahold and to my humble amazement YESH agreed. The result is mind bending. The mix– entitled “The Roots Carry the Stone”– features an all-femme roster, circling the globe at least once, touching upon all things genre from modern classical to boom-bap to underground house.

The show also tips its hat to Bill Withers, and features new work from Lingua Ignota, Irreversible Entanglements, Isabella + Felicia Atkinson, and more.

I have something to mellow you out tonight…let’s hope the steady bass and keyboards will cure what ails ya! Which, in these times, may require the comfort that only reggae, ska, and calypso can bring!

Cause and Effect presents:


On today’s Cause & Effect, Shannon from Commonwealth of Notions will be splitting the show between two local artists that are celebrating new releases in 2020. addy and Gnawing have been mainstays on the Commonwealth of Notions radio program as well as participating in the annual fundraising festival. The episode today will spend an hour on each artist to showcase their music, their influences, their creative peers, their favorite songs and the sentiments behind the songs selected for today’s playlists. Look below for bios for both bands and check out the playlist to see what each artist helped curate for today’s episode.


Following in the steps of a pair of electronics-embellished folk EPs, Eclipse is the debut record from Richmond, VA’s addy. As with addy’s previous work, Eclipse’s contemplative magic was produced entirely from home studios, lending a crucial flexibility to the album’s overall recording process, the final product of which belies its modest, DIY studio accommodations.

Led by the eponymous Adam Watkins, addy’s compositions navigate universal themes of friendship, heartbreak, and growth on the terrain of eloquent, country-reminiscent instrumentation. Natural ASMR-inducing textures and Casio-sequenced drum hooks create a unique rhythmic foundation for addy’s distinct lilt, itself occasionally adorned with honeysuckle-sweet pitch correction which lends the folkish twang an unusual yet modern slant.

Lead single “Planted” captures many of Eclipse’s salient elements with its wailing violin and pedal steel, evoking the strong emotions associated with healing and growth. On “Easier,” addy longs to alleviate the pains of a near-and-dear friend, whereas the album’s triumphant apex “Eclipse” turns the reflection inward in an entrancing, climactic ode to the self, punctuated with notes of optimism and hope.




Gnawing began as a one person recording project for John Russell in the living room of a dilapidated punk house in North Carolina. Prior to Gnawing, John had spent his time in bands like Alright, Planet Creep, Earthmover, and others, but never found himself in a position to grow his own sound. After recording and self-releasing a 5-song cassette of his debut songs as Gnawing through his own label, Hilltop Recordings, John found himself relocating to Richmond, VA and wanting to start a band in the new city.

Growing up on 1990’s alternative rock like Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, The Lemonheads, Sugar, Gin Blossoms, and more, John wanted to scratch a songwriting itch that would bring him back to his roots. After digging into writing a bit more, he decided to expand Gnawing into a full band project, revisiting the original EP and growing their sound as a trio. Adding Richmond natives Christian Monroe (New Lions) and Chris Matz (Antiphons), Gnawing found a new energy with new ideas.
