Cardigan Strike Attack
Do you love the new Dirty Projectors? Do you hate it? Probably you don’t if you’re listening to BTR, but either way I’m playing two of their new tracks on the show today! And that’s not even the most exciting thing! We’ve got a track from Jay Reatard’s old old band, Lost Sounds, and some brand new Hot Panda coming you way. And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest updates!
TGIF! And we all know what that means… Thank God for Indie Fashion! Today’s show features a guest who provides an incredible service to socially & environmentally conscious fashionistas: Kate McGregor, owner and operator of the New York City eco-boutique, Kaight. In her store, Kate has made the work easy for us by offering a personally assembled collection of responsible labels, and sustainability-focused designers. Not only can New York residents take advantage of this gem, but Kaight has a webshop, too, making it ridiculously easy to be responsibly stylish. On today’s show, Kate will talk about the concerns that led her to open Kaight, the criteria she uses to choose designers and labels, some of the changes she’s seen in sustainable design since opening her doors, and one of the biggest challenges she’s faced as a small business owner. All that, plus a playlist absolutely chock-full of great new music and releases, including tracks from ASPE, Dirty Projectors, Hot Panda, and BTR’s Discovery Artist of the Week, Cardigan Strike Attack. Indie rock + sustainable summer dresses. Could you have a better Friday? #Probablynot
