Its the "Lucky 13" and time for the Halloween theme and the bonus ep "Hallowshack". This time around we got 13 very "indie" bands and artists with just the right amount of new flare meets familiar. We got a new popular band Fate Under Fire whose currently involved with the excellent Netflix TV show (13 Reasons Why).

We got some new staff members and writing review crew so please welcome Brandon Barnes and Nate Potts to the crew. Both of them come with decades experience working in FM radio and they have come on board in support of the show and our plight.

We got more new Paper Jackets exclusive tracks plus plenty other neat surprises including new acts from across the pond in Ireland and Great Britain.

Be sure to check out the new bonus episode (music only) the "Hallowshack". Gonna feature song titles (maybe a band name) dealing with all things Halloween from dark to black to death and dying. Gonna be a "hell of a party"..lol

As always, give me some time and all tracks for both new shows will be posted at the website.

For all you "Rockaholics" anonymous members out there. Its the best of Stealing Eden and SCS. Feast your ears on a 1 hour smackdown (music only) of these 2 metalriffic rock powerhouses!! IMO the best 2 mainstream rock ready bands I've discovered and for that matter the best 2 rock acts (BIG FMradio bands included) that we've had the pleasure of showcasing in the past decade!! These 2 bands stack up against some of the best that have ever graced the stage pros or indie! TOO GOOD TO BE UNKNOWN!!

You can find the tracklist at my website under Shacklists.

www.halshack.com/shack-lists

And reviews for both these bands from our excellent staff.

Halshack EP 12 "Able to Label" (7-14-18)

Halshack has been granted a rare opportunity to breakout an upcoming band that has an officially endorsed cover of HUGE MEGA 1983 hit "Stand Back" by Stevie Nicks! She enlisted them to make it by way of mutual management team for the stellar band "PAPER JACKETS" and loved it! Its been authorized for exclusive pre-release on my show only!! WOW!! Thanks so much to the music elites and the management staff and to Stevie Nicks for allowing me this incredible honor!!

We've also got a slew of new artists plus past greats that are sure to aim to please the potential audience that may be listening in on this show. Ive got word from some various sources that the Halshack may be stirring the music pot just enough to cook some attention from a number of important gurus in the biz!

We've got another past Fox TV star, this time someone who used to play on "New Girl", she's all grown up and ready for the spotlight!

There's even a former American Idol Season 11 star in the mix fronting a nifty band from the capital of my home state (Raleigh, NC)

Catch us now on Podomatic, PlayerFM, Castbox, Spotify and Itunes as well as many others.

I'll add more later.....getting it on the web now! updated...7-14-18

Happy New Year 2018!! Time to get crankin' with a new episode and all new 11 bands and artists to get your new year started off with a bang!!

There's even some Hollywood star talent in this show. A popular actor turned musician will be featured amongst many other rising talent hopefuls.

There's even an all-new me to present with a new mic setup, I'm sounding more professional and ready to take on the radio airwaves in any city anywhere USA/Canada/UK/Australia and wherever else people like good music and a happy endearing infectious host...me!!

So as usual I'm not one to tell you who is in the show until you hear it. My reputation proceeds itself, just hit the play button and you will be pleasantly surprised that you have stumbled across the best kept secret in indie rock/pop/alt radio. We are growing immensely and are now featured on Discover Unsigned Radio, Bombshell Radio, The Indie Bible, FIYA music platform as well as Podomatic, PlayerFM, Mixcloud, Fandalism, Halshack website, Facebook and Twitter. Thank you for helping us to achieve success and for your continued support to help us reach our goals!!

I will be posting track lists for all episodes at my website as well as links where each episode can be heard. The track list for this show will be posted at a later date once its had its run. I don't believe in spoilers, I believe you should have no preconceptions when you hit the play button other than trust that I will not waste a minute of your time on non-marketable, non-mainstream radio ready bands that don't have proven reputations and tract records with at least some moderate success within their region of the world or maybe even globally.

In this episode there will be:
Alt Vault..2 songs
Funk Trunk..2 songs
Mystery Spotlight including Pop Stop....4 songs
Rock Block ....3 songs
Blues Grooves (Americana)..2 songs

Within these segments I award special tracks recognition.

Shacktrack Of the Month
Breakout Artist of the Month
Homegrown Artist of the Month (Local North Carolina and SC acts)

All-new award for Ep. 11
Songwriter award ..thinking of calling it the Shack Muse

So listen and find out who wins the all-new Shack Muse of the Month!!

OK ya'll Ive yammered enough and I'll probably be adding more at a later time....lol

P.S. be sure to look for 11.5 "Shackstars", there will be 2 versions floating around for Airport Impressions and Narrow Plains. Why is there an 11.5 and why is there 2 versions? Oooohhh..Im' soooo glad you asked..lol

Well since this show also runs on 2 radio stations Bombshell Radio and Discover Unsigned, I have 2 hour time slots to fill so I make an extra 45 min showcase on past talent and officially with this release they will be full cd's. (Well as much as I can fit anyway..lol) There will be no me just music and you can find a track list posted on the podcast and at my website.

Now I made 2 versions cause frankly I couldn't decide who to use and who to keep back for episode 12 Shackstars and I thought I would let the radio stations play both if they wanted or they could choose. Plus these camps are just so nice about sharing and spreading the love all around for the Halshack that I shall always try to return the favor for these so helpful ladies and gents.

Thanks again folks!! See you soon for Episode 12!!

Thanks for enjoying this full cd expose on this fantastic polished band from the island nation of Malta.

Many lasting impressions this band leaves behind in their wake after a show or just listening to their very stylish professional sound.

Airport Impressions flying all the way in from the tiny Mediterranean island nation of Malta. There's no where in the world that's safe from the clutches of the Halshack!!..lol

Let it Shine.... off their 2nd album release "Marietta". Amazing song with thundering drums and stellar vocal work as well as a diverse fantastic rhythm section, its no wonder this band was my mystery spotlight for Episode 7.

Be sure to check out their excellent spotlight article written by master blogger M. Stuart Persson and be sure to take a listen to episode 7 where I featured 4 songs by this talented quartet from Malta!!

I swear this is the next BIG U2 type band. There hasnt been a U2 since well.... U2 (lol) but they have that sound and festival fare. Look for this band to be flying to airports all over the world and leaving good impressions in their wake. Also a little birdie told me I'm going to be featured in their EPK going out to several industry leaders and record labels for supporting their band and you'll find a nice quote from me and my website information.

Thank you to the management staff and the band members for supporting and teaming up with the Halshack.

Please see their other track for more band info.
