SLB Summer Touring the Northeast 2016

SLB Summer Touring the Northeast 2016

We have had a blast in the Northeast this Summer, thank you to all the towns and communities that have opened their arms and homes up to us as Sweet Little Bloodhound has hit the road this Summer. Shout out to Lebanon, NH, Newburyport, MA, Greenfield, MA, Redding, CT, Maplewood, NJ, Northampton, MA, Florence, MA, New York, NY, Brooklyn, NY, Seabrook, NH, Salisbury, MA, and all those little road stops in between.  Although we don’t have pictures from every show, you know who you are and how much you rocked the house, no matter how big or small the show, you brought your spirit and we mixed it with a little SLB energy and we created a crazy cocktail of fun and mayhem.  You really helped us rock your communities and keep the smiles on our faces from roadblock to roadblock, you made it all worth it.  We look forward to seeing more of you in the near future as we are rounding out the end of Summer shows and planning our Fall Touring season.   Enjoy the pics and feel free to share them.

SLB heads to DC, where we meet and mingle with the locals

Travel with us as we meet the locals before our show at The Black Squirrel.  We hit the Amsterdam Falafel Shop, Bicycle Space, the music scene as we interview shop owners at the Crooked Beat about Vinyl sales and Smash Records about the local musical talent, such as Lindsay Buckingham Palace.  So plug in your ear buds and learn with us as we find out about the best way to have a Falafel pita, which bike horn is the best, the latest bikes on the market, how to ride safely, and how vinyl rebounded, literally.

This is a 2 part episode, so listen to the deep SLB discussions as we roll to DC one early morning last Fall and then check out part 2 where we hit the ground running and find out what is happening in DC.  We close the show with great indie artists, that we listened to on the road, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds from Brooklyn, Gin Wigmore from New Zealand, and Grace Potter from Vermont.  Come on go local with us!

This Playlist is on the Squirrel Level

Here’s my newest playlist for Sweet Little Bloodhound: all samples cleared? It’s a compilation of some of my favorite independent hip-hop and classics from the 80s, 90s and today, along with the terrific music that was sampled to help create it. In some cases, it’s literally a 1-bar clip that gets turned into something completely different! I’ll post a new collection every month. Check it out and let us know what you think -JN

Top 40 on Coverville for Sweet Dreams

We just found out that we made the Best Top 40 Covers for 2015 with our version of The Eurythmics song Sweet Dreams on Coverville. Big thanks to Brian and all the folks at Coverville for the honor. Check out the cool show here, dedicated to all cover songs. We have added it to our lists of must listen to going forward. We want to hear what other bands are doing for covers.
