About the show
Playing tracks by
Django Django, The Couch, Florence & The Machine, Victories At Sea, Arthur Beatrice and more.
How in the world did I stuff 29 tunes into this week’s show? I’m playing 14 artists for the first time including THE 2 BEARS, HOWLER, ALT-J, NICOLAS JAAR, BEAR IN HEAVEN, GRACE WOODROOFE, PLANNINGTOROCK, PHLO FINISTER, THE BIG SLEEP, DEATH RATTLE, THE COUCH and AZEALIA BANKS, who finally released a tune clean enough for me to play. Hear the return of THE SHINS and A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS; plus I’ll revisit records by GIRL IN A COMA, ST. LUCIA, FLORENCE + THE MACHINE and ALABAMA SHAKES. My Wild Card Pick this week is from a band that, seemingly, drew up the blueprint for HOWLER. At least I think so. Think you know ‘em?
