TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Well, all the people / Have got their problems / That ain’t nothing new

With the help of the good Lord / We can all pull on through / We can all pull on through

Get there in the end / Sometimes it’ll take you right up / And sometimes down again

It ain’t easy, it ain’t easy / It ain’t easy to get to Heaven / When you’re going down

Jonah Sidel turned 13 on Tuesday. Welcome to the first Friday and Idelic Hour of 2022! An old trusted friend once referred to the new year as a blank canvas. I always dug the reference. What would Jackson Pollock or Jean-Michel think when they set their gaze upon a clean gesso’d slate?

These last winter months have been mostly cold and rainy, but there have been moments of warm sunshine and calm. Despite the “bug” spreading everywhere and our family bickering with cabin fever, today I feel GREAT—truly grateful for a cup half full.

Yeah man, no love lost on this hour of music. As habit dictates, I spend the holiday morning reading about music. Often searching and listening for songs and artists I missed last year. I’ve come up fans of several artists I’ve never heard before: Leith Ross, Evan Cheadle, Water From Your Eyes, Mega Bog, Fake Fruit, Wednesday, Day and The Armed all clocked cool releases in 2021 and worth of your Idelic ears.

I’m also throwing out the traditional music label wisdom of first week song releases hitting the airways from Father John Misty, Eels, Alt-J, and Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood’s new rock outfit The Smile all declaring, “Let’s rock this joint.”

Fuck, I’m right there with ya. Please join me!
