DJRePete revisits CMJ w/re-discovery from showcase-past via the Cold War Kids, The Sounds, & Of Montreal + new Skullers & Brutalists!
Today the Listening Booth pays tribute to CMJ, the NYC festival that would’ve had its 36th annual festival about this week!
This week's hot weird topic is Julianna Barwick. Her new album is very, very good and a little bit strange and a little bit folksy, which makes it perfect for God Bless Weirdmerica. And we, of course, have the show loaded with all your weird favorites, like Black Dice, Eleanor Friedberger, and AnCo. And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest happenings.
Spend your day off with DJ Wynn as he shares music from Grandchildren, Wampire, Saturday Looks Good To Me, and Dungeonesse.
It's weird Weirdmerica day on BTR!! Today's big news is the new Akron/Family album! It's called Sub Verse and it's very weird and very good and we're going to play not one, but TWO songs from it on the show today. It's just that good. And don't forget to check out all of the other great programming we have for you on the station today, plus check out our tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter!
It's Hair Week on BTR! On today's show, filmmakers Jason Stefaniak and Siobhan O'Loughlin join us to talk about their short film, This is My Body. And later, BTR's Molly Freeman breaks down the wide world of hair blogs.
