Feel Like Going Home (Music)
Prodigal songs, wayward grooves, lyrical detours, soul folk in action - that's Feel Like Going Home, with Roy Kasten, three hours of indie rock, errant twang, dusty blues and acoustic-electric ballads.

Ernest Troost “I'll Be Home Soon”
from O Love (Travelin' Shoes Records 2014) —Ernest has been involved in motion picture music over his career. Much of his music creates moods and textures not unlike what one would experience from film. This is a really nice album.
Devil's Elbow “You and I”
from demo (Lightnin' Thunders Originals 2017) L —St. Louis' Mat Wilson and Elliot Sowell, with a little private stash music not available to the general public. Yet another great reason to tune-in and support KDHX.
Guy Forsyth “Heart of Sawdust”
from Calico Girl (Small and Nimble Records 2008) —This is Guy's re-recording of his Calico Girl album. The original was tied-up in label shenanigans and all but stolen from Guy. He was so proud of the songs that he chose to remake the songs, which had grown and changes some over the years.
Joshua Hedley “Weird Thought Thinker”
from Mr. Jukebox (Third Man Records 2018) N —Well, I just couldn't resist this one based upon the song title alone. However, young Mr. Hedley has put together a really great traditional country album here.
Dwight Yoakam “Missing Heart”
from 3 Pears (Warner Bros./Via Records 2012) —Yoakam to this day is probably my favorite C&W singer. He's never stopped singing both musics, never quit composing great songs. 3 Pears? 3 Cheers!
Charlie Mars “My Friend Ray”
from The Money (Rockingham Records 2014) —You know, I really don't know that much about Charlie. However, I picked this album up from our "stray" bins and I like it a lot. Sometimes it pays to try something different; one might like it!
Sarah Borges “Think of What You've Done”
from Radio Sweetheart (Lonesome Day Records 2014) —One of my favorite artists, who is working on a brand new album in between road trips. Sarah is also a huge proponent of independent and community radio - she was a college DJ back in the day.
Liz Vice “Fancy Feet”
from Save Me (Liz Vice 2018) N —Brand new music from the gifted and ever-soulful Liz Vice. Folks, this woman could sing the tax codes and make them sound soulful. Did I mention she's gifted?
Stevie Wonder “Jesus Children of America”
from Innervisions (Motown 1973) —What more do you need to say? It's Stevie Wonder. From '69 to '77 or so, this man was channeling a higher power or something. Wow!
Sean Wheeler “I'm coming Home”
from Sand in My Blood (Little Village Foundation 2017) —This was one of the most pleasantly unexpected and surprising albums of 2017. Sean's voice oozes soul, and his reading of the songs rewrote many of them permanently in his own image. Brought to you by the great folks at Little Village Foundation.
Filthy Friends “windmill”
from Invitation (Kill Rock Stars 2017) —Nothing fancy here, just a bunch of rock 'n' roll veterans letting their collective hair down, turning up, and having a ball.
Hindu Love Gods “Battleship Chains”
from Hindu Love Gods (Giant 1990) —Warren Zevon fronting REM playing blues and hard rock. That's it. And "it" is a really cool record.
Tonio K. “Say Goodbye”
from amerika (Gadfly Records 1997) —A remastered version of the 1980 album. I like this guy; witty, subversive, and pretty tremendous rock 'n' roll.
The Wilhelms “Contortionist Blues” (Perdition 2018) N L —John Wendland and Andy Ploof - ladies and gentlemen, The Wilhelms! With a CD release event on July 7 at the venerated listening room, The Focal Point
Jeff Turmes “Before You Were Born”
from The Sun Never Went Down (Jeff Turmes 2017) —Many of you might know Turmes as Mavis Staples' bass player, but he's a recording artist, composer of reknown, and multi-instrumentalist, too. He's a special cat, and this album features his banjo playing.
Ivas John “Keep Your Train Movin'”
from Good Days a Comin' (Ivas John 2015) L —Ivas is a younger guy, but such a rich and expressive singer as well as gifter songwriter guitarist. We're lucky he plays in St. Louis on a regular basis.
