The Night Shift - Live Broadcast - September 15, 2012
This week on The Night Shift, I recently "acquired" the new Grizzly Bear album, "Shields", so I featured a couple deep tracks from that. Also, GZA was playing a wild show on Saturday night, performing his majestic "Liquid Swords", so I played a couple songs from that Minotaur of an album. And if psych- folk-baroque rock and shadowy rhymes from one of the best Hip-Hop albums of all time wasn't enough (it never is), I featured music from some of the artists nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize list (The Polaris Prize of England), which was announced a couple days ago. Even though there are some really great artists who should be there in place of others, it still puts the 2012 Polaris Prize short list to shame.
