"I'm gonna stand here in the ache," Joy Williams wails in "Until The Levee," a song that comes just past the middle of the arc her new solo album, VENUS, creates. She seems to nearly strain her warm, urgent voice, which many came to love in Williams' early Christian-music recordings — and many more adored as one half of the sound of the now-defunct Civil Wars.

Melbourne guitarist and singer Courtney Barnett has been an NPR Music favorite since I caught three of her performances at New York's CMJ Music Festival in 2013. Her blend of witty lyricism and deadpan delivery made for two excellent EPs, and this year a full-length that will surely end up at the very top of my year-end list, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit.

When Leon Bridges sings, he often raises his arms in a chest-opening gesture that might resolve in a benediction or a finger snap. Like the music the 25-year-old Fort Worth soul sensation has carefully crafted for his debut, his signature move seems simple, but hold many meanings.

Hello!  I’m Karl Hricko for the United Astronomy Clubs of NJ, and the National Space Society - bringing you the June Astronomy Update for the WNTI listening area.

Richard Thompson's 16th solo album Still closes with an unusual homage to his longstanding sources of inspiration. It's called "Guitar Heroes," and though it's predominantly a standard jump blues, it's laced with extended interludes in which Thompson — arguably the most under-appreciated guitar hero currently recording — tips his hat to Django Reinhardt, Les Paul and other titans.

During all of June Just Jazz host Bob Bernotas will feature the music of his Artist of the Month, Kenny Barron.

For roughly half a century, the Billboard Hot 100 — America's hit barometer — underwent constant change as it accommodated all the new ways Americans consumed popular music.

And yet, in a larger sense, for the first 50 years or so, it didn't change much at all.

Rock-it Science host Greg Lewis recently spoke with British guitarist Snowy White.

Snowy has had a storied career recording and touring with Peter Green,Thin Lizzy; Pink Floyd and Roger Waters  over the last forty years.

He has also compiled an impressive solo catalog as well with Snowy White & the White Flames and the Snowy White Blues Project.

Snowy will bring his band with Max Middleton (Jeff Beck, Mick Taylor) to the Iridium in NYC June 14 &15 for a very rare US gig.

Snowy is one of the very best of his generation!
