Midweek on BTR means a music discovery mix with DJRePete who’s spinning “psychedelia” via Dungen and Axel Krygier, seductive electronica with Icky Blossoms and CHVRCHES, and alt ballads from Baio and Joel Michael Howard. Plus, hit up info on a neat venue Mikal Cronin is playing in Portland of the McMenamins variety. And get a heads up on a mid-winter festival in Madison, WI, aptly called FRZN, where you can find BTR artist John Mark Nelson. Plus, some beautifully trippy instrumentation with Joanna Newsom. That’s your BTR Wednesday start with DJRePete!
Hear from the world with DJ Wynn and tracks from Abidas Ernesto Garcia, Ariane Moffat, and Petite Noir.
Energize your Wednesday start on BTR with DJRePete who’s spinning some power alt with Oberhoffer and the very 60s sounding Rope Store to start. Plus, addictive electronica with Fenster, melancholy alt via Alex G, and ballads from the likes of Frogs Eyes. More from the latest by Little Boots also in there, as well as some Of Montreal ahead of their show Friday at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Finally, in a blast from the past, Silicon conjures up visions of the long lost 90s dancing baby. That’s your midweek start on BTR!
DJRePete has your soundtrack for these dog days of summer, spinning a mix of blues with Matthew E. White and Low Cut Connie, electronica with Sally Shapiro and the Pinkertones, and modern New Orleans funk with the Stoop Kids and 11 Acorn Lane. Plus, alt with Young Guv, Jaill, and The Cribs as well as throwbacks from Tiga and Peter Kruder. And hit up info on a Toronto non-profit residency space that’s doing some great work. Plus, tacos and beer. It’s your BTR Wednesday start with DJRePete!
The Thursday mix for the very last Thursday in June starts out with Latin and Spanish language music. I will also premiere a new band to the show, Stoop Kids. They hail from New Orleans, Louisiana and call their music "A love letter between doo-wop and hip-hop". Also, stay tuned for a new single by Deradoorian .
The Thursday Mix for June 18 brings you some mellow tunes, some rockin' tunes and some electronic tracks. You'll hear music from Fayetteville, Arkansas based band, Shawn James & The Shapeshifters, new tunes from Brooklyn band Wild Yaks and song off of Sharon Van Etten's latest EP, I Don't Want To Let You Down.
Hop on the Worldwide Hour to hear from Axel Krygier, William Onyeabor, and El Rego.
The Thursday mix features brand new music from Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Orange Peels, Patrick Watson, Heartless Bastards and more! We'll also hear from Melbourne's King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Reykjavik's Soley and Oakland's very own Danny James!
DJ Wynn beckons for warm temperatures with music from Lila Downs, Kasai Allstars, Axel Krygier, and DJ Spam and The Spam Allstars.
DJ Wynn is serving up double shots of fresh new music from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Soley, The Orange Peels, Ava Luna, and Torres.
Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR
It’s finally summer! Ok, technically it’s still spring, but to celebrate that beginning-of-summer, wrapping-up-the-school-year, we’re-just-gonna-watch-movies-insted-of-learn feeling, I’m going to start of the show with some nostalgic tracks! (And, of course, some new stuff after that.) And don’t forget to hop on over to Facebook and give us a like! We’ve got everything you need to know about BTR posted on there!
Welcome to another edition of God Bless Weirdmerica! Even though he’s technically not American, I’m trilled to play some folk on the show today from The Tallest Man On Earth. He’s got a new album out, and it’s now a huge departure from his previous work, which is just fine by me. And as always, don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, SoundCloud, and Pinterest!
