2018 | Ryan’s Top Albums & EPs of the Year

As I was putting this list of my most favorites in all of music I kept saying to myself “Isn’t pretty much every song you post about, and every album you listen to, and every song you play on The Music Savage Show your favorite?” And I answered myself “Well yes Ryan, yes you are right that every song IS in fact my favorite song and every album I spend time with is my favorite album!” With that said to myself the need to put a selection of favorites into list form at the end of any year runs strong…

Mixtape | August 2018

I’m super late (vacation, and some technical issues) to getting this to ya’ll but hey music is music. August was a pretty great month for new music, with new music from some of our favorites like Aaron Lee Tasjan, Ron Gallo and Tallest Man on Earth. But we saw and heard great tunes from all over.

Song of the Week | Basement Revolver – Tree Trunks

The WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is back with the gorgeous new single, “Tree Trunks,” from Hamilton, Ontario’s Basement Revolver.
