I feel like I played more songs than I wrote down... I guess they were all a little longer than usual. Is something missing??
I was a little concerned about what I was going to play on the show this week, but a whole slew of really great new releases made my job quite easy. I particularly enjoyed that Crystal Stilts song I played. I am listening to the rest of the record right now and it is all quite moody and dark, with nice little pop hooks buried under the mess. This one is good!
Next week a bunch of bands are coming to the station and taking over Gimmie Gimmie Octopus, Gumdrops and Lollipops and Carload of Whatever. They might even play some songs! I'm not entirely sure who is coming right this moment, but I will update on here once it is all sorted out. The visit is connected to a show going on later that night:
