Happy Thanksgiving. That's me in the top left waiting to dive into 'ol Grandma's turkey feast. In honor of the occasion I played a track by the fittingly titled group Thanksgiving. I was introduced to them in the 5 minutes before my show, but could not pass up the opportunity to play them today.

The show this week saw a lot of vinyl. Notably on the playlist was the Miracle Fortress cover of John Cale's Hanky Panky Nohow. The track appears as the B-side to the Have You Seen It In Your Dreams 12" single. Miracle Fortress didn't win the Polaris Prize, but his record Five Roses was just released in Europe on Rough Trade so I'm sure he is still happy.

A big new release this week from Sunset Rubdown. I haven't sat down with the whole album yet but I've really enjoyed what I have heard. Sunset Rubdown are at Logan's on October 26th with Magic Weapon and Johnny & the Moon. Act quick if you want to go. This is a homecoming of sorts for 50% of Sunset Rubdown and 100% of Magic Weapon. It promises to be a fantastic evening.

Also noteworthy on the playlist was the brand new Young Lions track Mary. The track is from a Young Lions demo CD I received, but we should see it in a proper release soon in the new year. Definitely keep an eye out for that.


Here's the playlist:

Deerhoof - Reveille - This Magnificent Bird Will Rise
Liars - S/T - Freak Out
dd/mm/yyyy - Are They Masks? - Mr. T Cereal
Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover - The Mending of the Gown
Miracle Fortress - Have You Seen In Your Dreams 12" - Hanky Panky Nohow

Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam - Chores
Charles Mingus - Cornell 1964 - Meditations
Japanther - Skuffed Up My Huffy - Vagabond
Young Lions - Demo - Mary
Thanksgiving - We Could Be Each Other's Evidence - Comets

Thanks for playing the YL song, Ryan. You're free to play it/it was exciting to hear it on the RADIO. That Thanksgiving song was kind of weird! But he is generally great!
