Shoegaze

The Pains Of Being Pure At HeartDavid has recovered enough from his mysterious malady, *cough* trip to see The National in Chicago *cough*, that he'll deign to suit up in his beret and black turtleneck this week. Look for a special guest and some existential angst. In deference to his illness we're going musically saccharine and sickeningly sweet. We've got new music from The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Cocorosie, Menomena, The Arcade Fire and promising new L.A. scribe Joe Gil, as well as Mojib, The Album Leaf, The Radio Dept. and more. Saturday at 6 Central. We built this city.

Shoegazer Ca Va?

Menomena

Shoegazer is pleased to welcome one of it's principal contributors to the show this week. We've dubbed him "The Natural", because, needless to say, it comes so very easy to him, which of course naturally makes us skeptical and inflames David's various neuroses. Despite our reservations he's brought a bag of new tracks with him, including Ceo, Rodrigo y Gabriela, jj and Julian Plenti. We've also got new music from Menomena (pic), Foals, Social Studies, great chill-wave from Grandpa Was A Lion and a transcendental exemplar in new artist Batte. Saturday night at 6 Central. David's positively chuffed (that's Anglish for the uninitiated).

 

Beach HouseShoegazer is back with a brand new edition, spreading the gospel according to Luke. David is busy building affordable housing for tots but assures me that he's raring to go (quarter tank of gas or no). On this week's show we've got new tracks from Beach House, The Love Language, Admiral Radley, Broken Social Scene and The National as well as Indie bedrock Yo La Tengo and gone but not forgotten Carissa's Wierd (yeah they're weird like that). As always, we only give you the choice cuts. Tune in at 6 pm Central at 100.1 fm or kruufm.com.

Crotchety Before His Time

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

The Curmudgeon joins the show this week to lambast our musical selections with an acerbic wit so dry only dogs can hear it. We've got newly minted tracks from Stars, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Neighbors, Oberhofer, The Delta Mirror and more... all ripe for the picking (apart). Saturday at 6 Central. When he's done destroying egos he'll be back to pouring concrete at 5 am for kicks.

David has almost finished the compound. When the watchtower and walls go up I'm not sure we'll hear from him again, so enjoy the baritone while you can. On this week's show we've got new music from Foals, Old Lights, Communist Daughter and The Radio Dept. as well as tracks from American Analog Set, Rogue Wave, Stars and an archaic Death Cab For Cutie effort. Enjoy the fruit of our labor this Saturday at 6 Central. Ciao ragazzi!

The Arcade FireWe were going to wax poetic on Joyce's Ulysses this week but the prospect of a soliloquy did not appeal (that and we got stuck somewhere around the sixth-hundreth page). Instead we thought we'd bring you some fresh produce. On this week's show we've got brand spankin' new music from Inspired Flight, Delorean, The Arcade Fire and The National, as well as great tracks from Guided By Voices, Built To Spill, The Long Winters and more. Tune in 6 Central Saturday evening for a healthy serving.

David would like to alert all his minions and sycophants that on this week's show we'll be discussing the dichotomy between beauty and ugliness in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as it pertains to the inherent morality of the individual, as well as introducing some sweet new indie acts for your edification. We've got new music from The xx, The National and The One AM Radio, as well as tracks from newcomers Beach Fossils and The Band In Heaven. Tune in this Saturday at 6 Central. Next week we'll slay Joyce's Ulysses.

Apologies for the 11th hour post. This week's installment features a special guest who has forsworn his identity to go only by the cryptic moniker "Bear". He brings with him new music from The Black Keys, Shout Out Louds and Rogue Wave as well as tracks from The One AM Radio, Asobi Seksu and Shoegazer favorites Headlights. Saturday at 6 CST. We're giddy with delight.

David's back from his quest of self-discovery. He was unable to garner support for his candidacy as Arizona's new governor on a ticket promoting inclusion. Pity that. He did meet some cool biker dudes though. On this week's show we've got brand new music from Broken Social Scene, Inspired Flight, The National, The Radio Dept. and MGMT as well as tracks from Pomegranates, the Pixies and Built To Spill. Saturday 6 Central. We've put Mr. G's Arena Spectacular to shame. Cheers.

 

David is missing somewhere in the southwestern United States looking for Castaneda yet we somehow soldier on without him. This week we have new music from Norway's ethereal Flunk, Valencia's lispy Polock and the Annuals from the U.S. of A. as well as Rogue Wave, Modest Mouse, Pedro The Lion, The Black Keys and more. It's looking like a low-key Saturday night.
