Lonesome Kind is the new release from Michigan-based singer-songwriter DL Rossi.

What do progressive rock bands such as Genesis and Yes have in common with the lo-fi aesthetics of Ohio’s Guided By Voices? On the surface, not much. But Guided By Voices frontman Robert Pollard has long proclaimed his affinity for prog rock and demonstrates that via a new song on the latest GBV album, Earth Man Blues. Hear that and selections from Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Teenage Fanclub, and Todd Snider on this episode.
