Greetings,

On today’s episode of Cause & Effect, we will be exploring the history of Richmond’s White Laces. A band that has explored impressive sonic territories and released an extraordinary collection of music throughout the years. On the brink of the release of their third record, it only seemed appropriate to have them come on the show. We’ll be discussing their creative influences, favorite songs, peers and their past. On top of that, the group will be performing live and sharing a few selections from their new record entitled No Floor.

Look below for the playlist!

And As Always, Thanks For Tuning In and Supporting All Things Local!

What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you’ll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres.”

Is it the end of summer? I think the last summery day is tomorrow, then cool nights and pleasant days after that. No prob. Anyhow, I’ve got a newly acquired Pylon single and lots of other stuff to play for you tonight 9-11pmEDT. Then I’ll be back tomorrow (Saturday) 6-8pm to host the local band show, with special guest John Morand of Sound of Music Studios!
