I continued delving into new releases from Methyl Ethel, Health and Ladytron on the show this week, while the retro alternative set ventured back to the late ’90s for a block of big beat-era electronica in honor of The Prodigy’s Keith Flint, who died last week at the age of 49.
I delved deeper into recent releases from Better Oblivion Community Center, Methyl Ethel and Ladytron on the show this week, while the retro alternative set marked the passing of Talk Talk’s brilliant frontman Mark Hollis with a block of his tunes along with a few acts clearly inspired by his efforts to take rock music into new, unexplored territory.
I delved deeper into recent releases from Broods, Ladytron and Sharon Van Etten on the show this week, while the retro alternative set traveled back to 1981 to explore some of the best post-punk and New Wave albums of that year.
I continued to explore new releases from James Blake, Better Oblivion Community Center and Ladytron on the show this week, while the retro alternative set looked back at album closers from classic ’90s releases, inspired by the odd story of how a 25-year-old Dinosaur Jr. album track suddenly became a top 20 hit in Japan in recent weeks.
I continued delving into recent releases from Maggie Rogers, Sharon Van Etten, James Blake and Sunflower Bean on this week’s show, while the retro set featured a selection of standout Beatles covers from alternative rock acts.
Along with all the fresh singles, I delved deeper into recent albums from Maggie Rogers, Alice Merton, James Blake and Sharon Van Etten on the show this week, while the retro alternative set traveled back to 1994 for some deep cuts from that year’s biggest albums (along with a couple hit singles as well!).
The new year has really started rolling now in the music world, as I debuted new tracks from Health, James Blake, Wild Nothing and Stephen Malkmus on the show this week, while the retro alternative set traveled back to 1978 for a block of punk, post-punk and New Wave classics.
I continued delving into some leftover 2018 albums that deserved more attention on the show this week, including music from Little Dragon, Parquet Courts and Peter Bjorn and John, while the retro alternative set focused on some stellar B-sides from great ’90s Britpop bands.
I continued dipping into a few less-explored 2018 albums on the show this week with tracks from The Beths, MGMT, Chai and Peter Bjorn & John, while the retro alternative set looked back to 2002 with a block of standout songs from that year.
For the first show of 2019, I explored a few lesser-played releases from last year that I felt were worth catching up on, including Goat Girl, The Beths and Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, while the retro alternative set celebrated the new year with a block of tunes about that specific topic!
