Hello hello, radio followers and fleers…and sheep…ers,
Apparently Carlisle weather decided to switch from almost freezing to SWELTERING summer weather overnight. I’m as shocked as the rest of you. Truly.
A little heat can’t stop ME from giving YOU the latest updates to the station’s heavy rotation binder this week though. In fact, I like the excuse to hide from the sun. No vampire jokes allowed.
Anyway, here are the ADDs for this week:
Sarah Donner — Fossil of Girl: This album is truly lovely. Sarah Donner’s sound reminds me of a young Alannis Morisette, though slightly less angry and probably best friends with Tegan and Sara. RIYD: Bjork?
Live Animals — Live Animals: This band is a rag tag group from SoCal and they fair from a skate punk surf snob scene indeed. RIYD: Sublime, 311, people in animal masks.
Toro Y Moi — June 2009: A revival of some of Toro Y Moi’s older and unreleased tracks, reminding us all why we luv him so much in the first place. RIYD: Best Coast, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Flaming Lips
Part Time — What Would You Say?: Synthetic pop is making a come back…who knew it ever left? RIYD: M83, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
Horse Feathers — Cynic’s New Year: Weird album title, great album. Horse Feathers is back with an even more folky Americana album. RIYD: Iron & Wine, Damien Rice
the breakups — running jumping falling shouting: This band isn’t nearly as obnoxious as their band name and album title. RIYD: The Shins, Elliot Smith
Alabama Shakes — Boys & Girls: This band has some serious Southern soul power. RIYD: The Black Keys, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Anyway, anyone else remember Sailor Moon? So magical.
Have a great rest of the week, try not to break anything, and eat lots of pizza.
