Do you miss our show? Do you miss our katzen- JAMMS? Here are the things I’ve been wearing out this summer, old and new.
Medicine - Shot Forth Self Living: All of this MBV business has got me listening to every shoegaze band ever, and this album is everything I want from shoegaze because the feedback is more abrasive than most. I could listen to “Miss Drugstore” all day long. If you are lucky enough to live in LA or Brooklyn, go see them in August.
Total Control - Henge Beat: This album is solid all the way through. Australian garage rock dudes with lots of synth sounds thrown in there. “Stonehenge” is my go-to upbeat party jam.
Monoshock - Walk to the Fire: Shout out to Ceci for showing me this one. It is wonderful in all of its lo-fi recorded-in-the-basement-ness.
Tyvek - On Triple Beams: More party, less Fugazi-esque angst than Nothing Fits (their 2010 release) makes for a good soundtrack to walking around on weekend days or backyard chillin.
Swearin’ - Swearin’: No nonsense, fun rock n roll. I was lucky enough to wander into their set at a 4th of July party w/ Screaming Females, and everyone was dancing, WHICH NEVER HAPPENS IN PHILLY. http://swearin.bandcamp.com/
Mala - “Changes (Jame Blake Remix)”: BASSSSSSSS.
In other news, our beautiful little station will be permanently relocated and destroyed forever as of Thursday. RIP KWUR, YOU CHANGED MY LIFE.
