The New Year brings a fresh new batch of indie617 programming, and the fast turnaround into the meat of the week means the Fenway Recordings Monthly is back this Thursday (January 9) at 8 p.m. Tune in as DJ Carbo checks in with “a focus on Los Angeles.”

His playlist includes tracks from Jane’s Addiction, The Dream Syndicate, X, and Snoop, and highlights some of the bands and artists coming to town playing Boston this month, like Beach Fossils and Deadmau5. It all kicks off with a recent cut from Boston’s hometown heroes Hallelujah The Hills, off their acclaimed November record I’m You. Want the rest of the playlist? Tune in Thursday to get the goods.

And hey, while you’re listening, you’ll notice that DJ Carbo mentions that he recorded last month’s show from Australia, and asks listeners to “please consider donating to a New South Wales Fire Brigade if you can.” Hit this link for more info on doing just that.

The Fenway Recordings Monthly airs on the second Thursday of each month, only at indie617.com. And find DJ Carbo spinning tunes at all the Fenway Recording Sessions live shows around the Boston area.
