Mike’s Monday Muse – Jenny Mae

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Jenny Mae was an influential indie rock musician from Ohio who released two albums on Anyway Records in the 90s. I recommend you buy “There’s A Bar Around The Corner…Asshole” immediately. Magnet Magazine called her tunes dreamy pop nuggets. She shared a stage with the likes of Neko Case and Palace Brothers and in 1993, put out a 7″ split with Guided By Voices. Adored by friends and fans, Jenny Mae sadly lost her battle with addiction in 2017 before the age of 50.

The B-Side: Lily Kelso

With a muscular bass line and a four on the floor beat, Lily Kelso‘s “Details” is a driving, grooving indie rock number that doesn’t skimp on the melodies either. Big, layered harmonized vocals on the choruses, minimalist but hooky lead guitar parts, this is the fully loaded deluxe model. Go ahead and treat yo’self. You deserve this kind of audio luxury.
