DJ Picks

Dennis Huff, Afternoon host on AREA 107.9 FM

Current faves

Alice in Chains, Black Gives Way to Blue. “It sounds like Alice in Chains hasn’t missed a beat. As much as we all miss Layne, Will Duvall complements the band very well, and brings new life to the band. It’s exactly the way I would expect AIC to sound today.” 30 Seconds to Mars, This Is War. “This record has really put the band over the ‘Can they do it?’ stage. They really matured as a group. This is their best work.”

New finds

San Francisco-based indie rockers
The Stone Foxes and Phoenix’s Pelvic Meatloaf. “There is a lot coming out
early this year.”
