"Bits and Pieces" is a sampler of B-sides and rarities that have wormed their way into the hearts and souls of listeners in 2013. Some have appeared in our summer show, while others were special gifts, bonus tracks, or closet favorites. And one track made the cut simple because our friend Jesse Sprinkle said, "That jam is the sh*t, and that sh*t is my JAM!" That's good enough for us. We hope you enjoy these songs. Share them with your friends and tell us what you think.
Mike for Violet Mary
July 8, 2013
"Beneath this band's muscle-car patina and melodic shine lurks the heart of the beast. Rochester's Violet Mary is both melodic and picturesque without forsaking those RPMs and the ensuing heart palpitations. In other words, this is one undeniable force, a great rock band." - Frank DeBlase, City Newspaper
