Looking back at the tracklisting for August's Amazing America show kinda surprised me in that it's loaded with bands from California. If you were to look at my music collection, you'll generally find a lack of bands coming from the Golden State. Just to doublecheck this notion, I scanned the iTunes on my laptop - home to the past year's worth of listening - and sure enough, aside from scattered tracks by La Sera, Best Coast and FIDLAR (all heard on this show, btw), I haven't a single full-length from a California-based artist on it unless you want to count Jesca Hoop, who now lives in the UK.
So give it up for the rest of Cali contingent on this weeks show: THE FRENCH GIRLS, DEAP VALLY, SWEATER GIRLS, DUM DUM GIRLS, LETTING UP DESPITE GREAT GIRLS FAULTS. Plus there's Canada Corner and lots more. If you haven't heard it yet, it's new to you...so have at it.
