What I Got at the Post Office Today by Chuck P

Written by

All of our DJs receive hundreds of CDs a month to consider for airplay. In this regular feature, KCRW DJ Chuck P catalogues his musical bounty from the Post Office each week.

So, yeah… missed my post yesterday.  My wife had the car seat in her car, so I was stranded at home with the rugger.  The rigors of parenthood…

At any rate, I dumped her off at the sitter today so I could go to the post office!  And take a nap. And eat some pizza.  But not necessarily in that order.

Here’s what was waiting for me today.

1) Neon Indian “Mind Ctrl: Psychic Chasms Possessed” – special package includes their brilliant album along with nine bonus remixes.


2) Various Artists “Sound Of Siam: Leftfield Luk Thung Thailand 64-75” – I’ve got so much thai funk my eyeballs are floating, but more is always welcome.  I heard this one twice over the weekend, played by both Liza Richardson and Tom Schnabel.  I was hoping I’d find it in the box today.


3) Shapers 7″ and LP – I made their single Virginia Reel 7″ of the Week a couple weeks ago, and they were kind enough to send the physical copy, along with their debut LP.  Bonus!

Honorable mentions include a package from the label Mexican Summer, which included three top notch releases from this year.  2010 has been a really great year for music.

Filling in for Gary Calamar this Sunday night 12/12, 9p-12a. I’ll be playing more of the best from 2010.

Thanks for listening.

Chuck P.
