Happy post-Christmas Saturday. Instead of going to the mall to return that ugly sweater, just embrace it and hang out with us here at BTR. It's part two of three of my chronological 2013 countdown! We're starting in April and going through the end of the summer in this section, so stayed tuned for all your favorite indie summer bangers!! And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Part 2 of 6 shows in which I play all of my favorite songs from 2013
Zula. Dan Deacon. Leapling. Blood Orange. White Birds. Bibio. Thee Oh Sees. Phosphorescent. Jesse Futerman. And more...
DJ Wynn shares his favorite under the radar tracks of 2013. If you missed them the first time, it's all right. Devour them now. Music from Born Ruffians, Yellowbirds, Mum, Deer Tick, Dent May, and Pure Bathing Culture.
Ahhhh Thanksgiving night... KILN, Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm, Boards of Canada, Cristoph El Truento, Bibio, The Range, The Black Hollies, Simon Scott, Julian Lynch and more...
I do love New York City in the fall, and I do love watching my Minnesota Vikings. So, it seemed like a brilliant idea to o go and see both at the same time as my beloved Vikings were set to battle the completely rotten, winless New York Giants. If my Vikings are good at anything, it's making terrible teams look brilliant. They did not fail me under the bright lights of Metlife Stadium. This was also a great opportunity to meet up with regular contributor to the show, Insane Dane. He accompanied me to the game and showed me what a truly delicious stadium dog New Yorkers are privileged to have. We went right for the Kosher dog vendor and got a perfectly cooked dog with sauerkraut. Pair that with a Stella and we were in business. Check out Insane Dane's take on Game day in his latest Dish + Drink.
For Columbus Day, an all-music mix is In The Den
Aw yeah, it’s fall peeps! It’s time to get excited about roasting things again as well as fall vegetables, soups and of course pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING!!!! Also, Halloween doesn’t just have to be about stupid little kids running around in unimaginative costumes trying to assert their perceived rights to free candy. Instead, it can be about fun dinner parties and costumes for adults with the adjective “sexy” affixed to the label. Oh Yeah... We also have beer too!
Lately, DJ Wynn has been reading essays by David Foster Wallace, and somehow he relates that to the new Hookworms album, Pearl Mystic. He also spins new music from Man Man, King Khan and The Shrines, and Tica Douglas.
Quince is a one Michelin star restaurant that is somewhat of a local legend around town and I just happened to have dinner there on the same night we recorded the show. It was fresh in mind so I needed to discuss. In our quest to be as diverse as possible we cleanly segued into burger talk, specifically Umami Burger. Since we we're already discussing burgers, we wanted to give a shout out to the fast food workers seeking a living wage.
So Hanabi and Insane Dane had a chance to experience a cross-country culinary phenomenon. No, they did not open an In and Out burger in NYC. But, they did open an NYC version of the San Francisco cult classic, Mission Chinese Food. Even though those NYC folks don't exactly know what the Mission in Mission Chinese Food means we can at least share a good meal even if we're 3,000 miles away. Hey New York. Don't say San Francisco never gave you anything.
Gimme Rock Shooooooow! (R-O-C-C-K!) I want Rock Shooooooow! (Um, did I happen to say?)
Feeling extra smooth this week... On this show we are gonna get super maxi-chillin'. A lot of nice grooves and cool moments to bring you into your best week ever! So let's get it in. Glitch/DM
America loves to party and America loves party snacks. Hanabi always brings the party, and Hanabi always brings the snacks. Yes it's the snack episode. We'll be talking all about our favorite snacks and whether they're any good for us. Scintillating!  Also check out some bleeps and blips by my man Aphex Twin and other savory tracks by Band of Horses and American Analog Set
I know what you're thinking. "What the hell am I going to do with all these tough cuts of meat? I mean I saved all kinds of money, but now what?" Seriously, don't sweat it. We got this. We're about to get our braise on son! That's right. It's time to talk a little technique this week, specifically braising. Also, Dish + Drink is on point.
DJ Wynn spins old tunes from Young Fathers, new music from Gauntlet Hair and underwater disco from STRFKR.
Cupcakes are stupid. Nobody cares. It's all about donuts now, though Homer Simpson has been trying to tell us for over 20 years. Hanabi is totally down with this, and has been for quite some time. New York has it's Cronuts as Dane will tell you about on Dish + Drink. But, San Francisco wins with Dynamo donuts, it's not a race though. Donuts are awesome. Embrace them.
Joey Bada$$. Cough Cool. Eola. Grizzly Bear. Cristoph El Truento. J. Dilla. Guppy. Adze. Leapling. Secret Cities. Woods. Ex Cops. Lou Breed. And more...
Hey! Welcome back to you most favorite show ever... Ok, so this week is a pretty chill one but not too sleepy, just coooool. man. As always, we are dropping some new NEWness, but keeping it real with the oldies. So kick back, it's the Glitch/DM Show! -ed-
If you've never been to an Asian dessert diner, you're totally missing out. These places are fascinating. With delicious things like Hong Kong milk tea, egg puffs, roti buns, honey boxes you're in for a treat. As lame as that just sounded I can assure you it's the truth. Whatever you do, stay away from the sweet green bean soup because it's just weird. Oh, and don't forget to check out the latest Dish + Drink, it's about fish.
