You’re a mere four days away from the release of Microwave Dreams, the newest release from John Wesley Coleman. Having been fortunate enough to listen to the record a few times before it hits the streets, I can honestly say that it holds some of the best songs JWC has written to date (and that’s a whole lotta songs!). The song has a pretty simple message, seemingly a coming of age tune with the acceptance of adulthood. It’s a message further emphasized by the accompanying video, which has Mr. Coleman out on a family adventure here in Austin; the video is endearing, which hints at some of the themes running through the new LP. You can grab that LP from Super Secret Recordsthis Friday!
As we push forward towards 2017, we’re all thinking of highly anticipated releases. One on my personal list, and that of most in-the-know Austinites, is John Wesley Coleman‘s Microwave Dreams.

Another year, and it looks like we’ll get another LP from John Wesley Coleman. I think that means we’ve got at least one great thing coming out of next year, and this song exemplifies just why JWC is so beloved here in Austin. I think, if I’m to go out on a limb, this might be the best I’ve heard from Wes; he sounds refined, yet still has that devil-may-care attitude that’s kept him so endearing. His new album, Microwave Dreams, hits on January 27th via Super Secret Records. Damn this song is good.
