The year 2012 has been a good year for independent artists--creative people without the money and hype of big-time labels, studios, and names.
This week I'll introduce you to some indie artists you likely won't have heard of before (like Revolver, Way Yes, Jane's Party [left] and the Magnetic Fields whose "Andrew in drag" is a hilarious ramble), and I'll also play the former indie darlings who inspired and influenced them like Of Montreal, The Shins, Flaming Lips, and Fleet Foxes--all of whom released CDs in 2012.
I'll also preview three songs from the Beach Boys new CD, scheduled for release later this year. I think you'll be impressed: their harmonies still shine like rainbows reflecting sunlight.
Here's the playlist for this weeks show.
