New Music

Tuesday - Thursday 2pm-4pm & 10pm-mid

New Music specializes in new releases, bringing listeners "the best of the new" as chosen by Northern Community Radio's music director. Rock, folk/Americana, blues, soul, world beat and jazz are all represented in the mix.

The next in the Centerstage Minnesota concerts at the Reif Center in Grand Rapids is Siama Matuzungidi.  A Congolese guitarman,  Siama, recorded hundreds of hits and toured the world with soukous greats until making Minneapolis home base.

Siama’s picking style is legendary.  He and partner Dallas sing up a sweet storm and, along with authentic drum and belafon (a calabash marimba), they perform the sounds of DR Congo and upbeat soukous of East African dance floors

jeremy messersmith opens his new album, Late Stage Capitalism with a song he says is about two people on the worst date ever. Hear "Purple Hearts" and more on the latest edition of Centerstage Minnesota. Click here for the PRX link to the show. Then listen every Friday at 2:00 and 10:00 for two hours of folk, rock, blues, jazz, and world music all by Minnesotans.

Don't fall to the temptation that spring is coming yet, we've got some winter ahead of us, and there's no better way to beat the cold than with cool music. Each week Centerstage Minnesota warms things up with music from all over Minnesota, including Atmosphere, Thea Ennen, and Reina del Cid.

In a rather retro move, singer/songwriter Ellis unveiled recently a hotline for her fans to call and hear inspirational messages. Listen to the call on this edition of Centerstage Minnesota, then tune in every Friday and 2 and 10 for great music--all from Minnesota.
