This week’s show feels kind of like comfort food. I’ve had this Lucy Dacus song stuck in my head for a week now, so I figure I may as well play it, right? 🙂
I also have Tobin Sprout, The Ronettes, Bauhaus, Juana Molina, and much more! I hope you enjoy the show!!!

I had a whole bunch of music pulled for this week, and then I got talking with Princess Beetfarmer & JR Tympanum, and they mentioned some new world music I hadn’t heard about yet. And then Mike Rutz, Host of Activate, asked me if I’d like to give away a pair of tickets to see Animal Collective at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on May 20. So I switched a whole bunch of stuff around, added a few new songs, and hopefully made something fun for you this morning.

In the queue: They Might Be Giants, Oumou Sangare, Matthew E. White, Liniker E Los Caramelows, a few songs related to Russia, that internet mashup of Ozzy and Earth, Wind And Fire, AND A CHANCE TO WIN TICKETS TO ANIMAL COLLECTIVE!

This week’s show has a lot of mellow, atmospheric, slowcore, and darkwave type music: Codeine, Low, Blonde Redhead, Grey Frequency. It’s a sleepy kind of show, but I don’t want to put you to sleep if you’re trying to wake up. Be prepared and adjust your caffeine intake as needed for maximum performance. It’s good music. It’s worth it. Thanks for listening!

Oh lordy. I did that thing again where I got my show prepared a few days in advance, and then the night before I suddenly wanted to change a bunch of songs. But it’s been a long week and I needed my sleep instead of spending all night fiddling with files. So I’m going to stick with my original plan which includes Strand of Oaks, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Wanda Jackson, Magnetic Fields, Link Wray, AJ Davila, and much more. I hope you enjoy the show! Thank you for listening!

I planned out this week’s show a little bit at a time over several days. And I just realized that I’m really NOT sure how to describe it. It gets a little LOUDER that what I usually play in the morning. It’s got several songs about lies. It’s got a shark, a hurricane, a spy, a taser gun, and 3 references to Mexico. The artists in my planned playlist include Bob Mould, Ana Tijoux, Low, King Khan, Truman, Woody Guthrie, Shana Falana, and Fugazi. Anyway, thanks for tuning in, and I hope you enjoy the show!
