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.
Warm days and cool nights. In winter. I love this city. ’nuff said.
Got a great deal of goodness from the post office box this week. Here are some highlights…
1) Wye Oak “Civilian” – gorgeous shoe gaze/acid folk material. Looking forward to soaking up this new disc.
2) Johnny Cash & ESG 2xCD reissues – Reissues are always welcome in my mailbox. Two classic artists here. ESG collection is career spanning and the Cash release is subtitled Bootlegs Vol 2, so I’m sure there are some unreleased tracks worthy of our time.
3) A ridiculous package of 7″s from Black/White Iris – Heaven… I’m in heaven…
Honorable mentions include the new CD from Ryat, We Are Enfant Terrible & the digital release of the new Radiohead album.
I wasn’t expecting that last one, but I was happy it showed up in my email bin!
All this and more tonight @ 12a.
