Song of the Week | East of My Youth – Broken Glass

The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines down on Reykjavik and highlights the beautifully majestic single, “Broken Glass,” from Icelandic duo East of My Youth. The new song follows the release of their well received self-titled debut EP, which was released in January through the band’s own label West Of My Future LTD.

Song of the Week | Kelsey Kerrigan – Driving Around

Today we focus the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight directly on the fantastic debut single, “Driving Around,” from the talented L.A. musician Kelsey Kerrigan’s upcoming album due to be released this fall.

It would seem as though everything is falling into place now that the album is complete and…
