Episode 77: Johnny Leitera of Tuff Sunshine


Johnny Leitera of Tuff Sunshine joined Tom for the 77th episode of Look At My Records! The Brooklyn based Tuff Sunshine are set to release the follow up to their excellent 2015 record, Fire In The Hero Building later this year, and Look At My Records! is pumped to premiere the first track from the record, “We Seal Every Deal With A Kiss.”  Tune in to hear this awesome brand new track, plus two tracks from Johnny’s “Untreated” project, which is  a collection of stripped down, powerful acoustic songs.  We wrapped up the show with a slew of great records from XTC, Billy Bragg, and The Pretenders!

You can purchase Fire In the Hero Building on vinyl via Brooklyn Arts Press. A cassette version is also available via the recently relaunched Shorewave Records. Johnny’s “Untreated” project, as well as all other Tuff Sunshine releases, are available for download via Bandcamp.
