We 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.
David is absconding to Sturgis on his hog trailing calamity in his wake following this installment of Shoegazer Ca Va? so catch him while you can. This week's show features new music from Wye Oak, Shout Out Louds and The Uglysuit as well as The xx, We Were Promised Jetpacks, I'm From Barcelona, Broken Bells and more. Tune in Saturday at 6 Central. Oh, and don't tread on us.
Vanity Fair called Shoegazer Ca Va? a show of inanities and discomfiting embarrassments.
Yes! On Saturday's installment we've got new music from MGMT and newcomer Olney Clark, as well as Say Hi, The National, My Bloody Valentine, Jonsi and more...
Tune in at 6 Central, grin and bear it (or in David's case- bare it).
~ Shapes, Lauren Zettler
Lauren Zettler is a savvy DIY type of gal. The bio on her website talks about her journey to musicianhood, from the childhood dream, to the detours due bouts of practicalness, to the lightning-bolt epiphany that the “jealous tears”
at every musical performance she attended were probably not necessary
and that she should follow her heart.
Tune in Tuesday from 9-10am for music by great female singer-songwriters and for the interview with Lauren, including a preview of some tracks from her soon-to-be-released EP!
On a recent trip to my hometown Port Townsed, Washington I met Josh Lake of Shark Shark who played an impromptu set at our friend's party. A living room show was a great introduction to his folksy music and I have been hooked on his lyrical genius ever since.
Josh has released some music through Murder Mountain Records and is planning on recording another album in the near future. But we got a special sneak peek at a few unreleased songs while he was in studio with us this week en route from his home base Portland.
This Saturday night tune in to Eden's Hour and treat yourself to a hidden gem from the Northwest. [Rebro 4am Friday.]
break me out tonight i wanna see the
sun rising anywhere but here
come with me, this could be
the only chance we get, we gotta take it
don't do it now we'll never make it
lose this crowd, break me out
~ The Rescues, Break Me Out
The Rescues have been described as an Indie Supergroup - three talented singer-songwriters and friends with solo careers, brought together to perform at another friend's wedding only to discover that the whole was more than the sum of the parts. And when you've got good parts to begin with, well - get ready to have your socks rocked! I'm betting you'll love the soaring harmonies, driving beats and heart-swelling ballads these three pump out time and again on their album Crazy Ever After as much as I do!
Join me on Tuesday at 9am for an interview with the two female thirds of The Rescues - Adrianne and Kyler. (Love you too Gabe!)
