"Oh K, Okay" by Said The Whale. I forgot to mention this on air today but this band is from from Vancouver, Canada, which is always a point in their favor for me as a fellow Canadian :) Glad they’re making it big with another catchy album this year!
Thanks to those who were around to tune in for my fill-in show earlier tonight! I really enjoyed hanging out in the station again. Here's my ~eclectic~ one-hour playlist from that time.
On the radio from 5-6 pm PDT!! Tune in for a great hour of music on this laid-back Sunday :)
Hooray, new Four Tet! Enjoy the softly percolating “Parallel Jalebi.”
Speaking of things to enjoy, I’m doing a fill-in show on KSPC for one glorious hour tomorrow – tune into 88.7fm or kspc.org from 5-6pm PDT! Featuring a song inspired by the poetry of Yeats, the latest and greatest electronic tunes, and a bunch of other heretofore-unspecified neat stuff!
BACK IN CLAREMONT and while I’m not doing a weekly show (sadface), I am hosting a fill-in show this Thursday from 2-4 pm PST! Tune in, laugh at my slip-ups as I remember how to DJ, and enjoy some great music! You know the deal, 88.7fm or listen online at kspc.org!
The new Moses Campbell video is totally awesome! KSPC will be previewing some of their new album next Tuesday on Songs for Someone with Eric (10PM-Midnight). We’ll also be doing a ticket giveaway sometime next week for their record release at the Smell. Stay tuned and check our twitter for updates!
Stay Cool Forever is the homeslice Keith’s project from Pomona. He makes glitchy, fun, electronic pop music, with a HEAVY edge in experimentation. Constructing sugar coated beats with humongous dynamics, but with a very chilled out display seems to be easy for him. St. Ranger, on tour from Arizona, develop a very chilled out guitar pop, with lots of catchy vibes and a somewhat charming inebriated droll. The guitar work works in more than just a power chord chill out. Courtaud and Bobtail are a three piece twangy, folky, country, back woods sounding guitar pop band. Their almost slowcore-like echoes spilled out over the audience the last time they performed at the dA. It was monstrous. Take Pictures is a blitzed out (maybe I mean blissed out) indie pop band, drenched in that sweet tasting thing called ‘verb. Guitar pop that kind of sounds a little glassy and naive. Easily a shoegaze band for the 2010’s. VVTFVZZ are also drenched in that ‘verb thing. I think they can get really noisy and loud, or be somewhat sneaky flute appealing. It might depend on what sort of mood they are in during the night. I don’t know what Catheter sounds like, but I like the name.
