KCRW Broadcast 752

Fanatic! I hope you’re having a great September weekend, no matter where you are. I’ve been sitting on this information for weeks and now, finally, I can exhale. There is a great new record to check out.

New Marnie Stern LP!!! Fanatic, this was the record I’ve been waiting to tell you about. It announced a couple of days ago. I’ve played it a few times and it’s really great. Brand new music from our good pal and sonic ally, Marnie Stern: The Comeback Kid.

As I’ve told you too many times, it is never for me to divulge information on the release of a record before a band or label does so. I was sent the tracks for this record weeks ago and didn’t say a word to anyone. I was looking forward to when the label would be posting the Bandcamp information, which means the record is okay to announce here. So glad there’s a new Marnie record to play tracks from.

There’s a new Vintage Crop 7”. I like this band. The tracks are great.

New Melenas album. You might have noticed there’s a new Melenas LP called Ahora on Bandcamp from the great Trouble In Mind label. I don’t think there’s a bad second on it. We’ll be checking out every track of this one. It releases at the end of the month.

Many years ago, I wrote a book called Solipsist. It’s been out of print for a long time. We just made a run of it. All copies are signed.

I’ve got shows coming up.

Fanatic, you might remember last year, we started our first September show with the same song we’re starting tonight’s show with. I think it’s a perfect track to get things going.

We have a great conceptual second hour. You might remember I told you how great the recent David Bowie release Divine Symmetry. The record is basically a new look at Bowie’s Hunky Dory album. I’ve been less than amazed at the recent Bowie projects like the remix of Station To Station, Lodger and The Man Who Sold The World. I think the mixes on Divine Symmetry are great and the best way to check them out wouldn’t be to play a song a week as we sometimes do, but to listen to the whole thing so you’ll be able to immerse yourself. It’s a great listening experience.

If you’re in a part of the world that’s experiencing a holiday weekend, please be careful out there. Enjoy the show and STAY FANATIC!!!
