On this weekend's episode of The Local Show, Gospel Gossip returns to The Current studios for a performance. Their new self-titled album will be out on March 19.

Sara Montour and Steve Korf, the founders of Live Letters, will also drop in for an interview and tease their upcoming show with Chalet, Joey Kantor's new project.

We've also got the first song from Har Mar Superstar's forthcoming record Bye Bye 17. It's coming out on Julian Casablanca's Cult Records. The rest of the show is basically one big debut: new music from Vague-a-Bonde, The Replacements, Crimes, Dan Israel, Web Of Sunsets, Frankie Lee, Haphduzn and Dimitry Killstorm, Humanda, Wiping Out Thousands, Hollow Boys, Meta and even an unreleased song from 12 Rods. Whew!

Gospel Gossip performs in The Current studios

It's been three years since Gospel Gossip released their "Drift EP," but now the trio is back with a self-titled album that truly is a labor of love. A brief hiatus and a long recording process has given the Northfield-born band time to refocus and finesse their sound.
