WFPK Album of the Week: Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex


Each week, WFPK features a new release with the Album of the Week. Listen for tracks on air and check out the audio and links here!
He was a one hit wonder in the states, but in Europe, Marc Bolan, with his band T. Rex, was a 70’s superstar. Angelheaded Hipster honors the influential songwriter and features artists from Lucinda Williams to Kesha.

The tribute is the final project of producer Hal Willner, who sadly,  died of complications from COVID-19 in April.

Angelheaded Hipster: A Tribute to Marc Bolan and T. Rex arrives at a moment the band is riding a new wave of appreciation. Bolin will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this November with a documentary to follow that same month.

WFPK’s Album of the Week is made possible by support from local businesses and you! Find out how you can become a member by clicking here!

Album available at Guestroom Records and Matt Anthony's Record Shop.
