Brainwaves – January 4, 2022 – New songs for a New Year

Can you believe it’s 2022? A New Year deserves a Brainwaves with all new songs – yes, songs with “new” in the title. And since we’ve been obsessed for the last month with the Beatles documentary “Get Back,” what better way to start the show than with Paul McCartney’s “New?” Followed by two hours of “new” from the likes of Yael Naim, the Shins, Idan Raichel, Timmy Spence, Ultravox, Orange Juice, the Rewinds, Melanie, The Who, Sugardrum, and lots more. Plus the “New” Seekers and their famous commercial for Coca-Cola (made even more infamous by Don Draper in Mad Men – look it up). Ring in 2022 with the best indie, alternative eclectic from Brainwaves.
