KCRW Broadcast 304

Fanatic! Easily one of our best shows this year! Great track by Wand. Really cool album, sent to us by Larry at In the Red Records. Great track and another track from the album lined up for next week. I don’t know much about them but I like this album a lot.

Engineer X came by recently and laid a bunch of music on me. He is full time, all over the music search. He gave me a large file of songs and I had not heard of any of the bands except for a few. We will feature some of these bands tonight. I apologize for not knowing nothing about the bands, this is all hot off the press.

The Lower Plenty! I am such a fan. I had the Hard Rubbish album for months but had not played it. Several nights ago, I put it on and it was love at first listen. I found some of their other records and they’re all working for me. We will be getting into this band as the weeks go on.

2015 hardly started and Ty Segall has two new releases. The very cool Mr. Face EP, double 7” set. We rock a track tonight and I reckon will get through all four songs. Also, a live album, as well as a two song single. I just got the two singles and am waiting on the live album. It will all go into the mix as we go forward.

Hopefully, some of you made it to the Chain & The Gang show on the 15th at Satellite. Wow! What a great show! Perhaps some of you noticed a new song, at least new to me, The Logic of Night. I think it was my favorite song of the night. Their 4 (!) albums are all great but live, that’s where it really cooks.

If you look at the songs we have lined up for the show, you can see that we are bringing on some new bands and artists to keep it lively. I will be relating a lot of the info during the show for more details.

Next week’s show is already started and it’s going to be great, so tune in if you can.

I don’t have a crystal ball but I think it’s going to be a great year for music. Three words to leave you with: Russell Street Bombings. Not the event, the band. Very cool. I think you’re going to dig them. When I get the green light to play tracks, we will get into it.

Have a great listen and STAY FANATIC!!!
