Today we have two brand new tracks from local Brooklyn bands on the show: The Babies and Widowspeak. Alligator has those chord changes that tug on your heartstrings, and Ballad of the Golden Hour conjures up a slick, gorgeous atmosphere. They're the perfect songs for your Thanksgiving turkey hangover. And make sure to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter.

Congratulations to President Obama for being re-elected as the POTUS. DJ Wynn has put together a celebratory set featuring Flying Lotus, Dan Deacon, Meyhem Lauren, and Ty Segall
Happy HallowEEEeeeEeeeEEEEEeeeNNN!!!!!!!!! God Bless Weirdmerica is the perfect show to listen to on Halloween, because so much New Weird America is naturally spooky. The genre revels in its own weirdness! So, we've put all of the weirdest songs on the show today in honor of the holiday. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some Halloween Spook!
This week on Art Uncovered Italian curator Domenico Quaranta talks about his exhibition Collect the WWWorld: The Artist or Archivist. For Collect the World Domenico has assembled a group of artists who appropriate, re-mix, collect and manipulate the cultural material of the web in an attempt to hold up a mirror up to our always-connected information society. These artists try to figure out what to make of the deluge of data, videos, images, text, social networking, and e-commerce that have reshaped our lives. The question that emerges from this show is whether the flood of information actually leads to knowledge and meaning or confusion, anxiety and identity crisis. The answer I got from the videos, installations, objects and other works in the show was all of the above. Last Sunday I spoke with curator Domenico Quaranta over Skype about Collect the World which is on view through November 4th at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn.

Ever wonder what it is that makes a garment high-quality? What really IS the difference, besides brand, between a blouse from H&M or Hermès? On today's show, we have the perfect guest to tackle these questions. Nayantara Banerjee is known in the NYC fashion circuit as The Williamsburg Seamster, and has made a name for herself as a skilled tailor. After graduating from Syracuse, Nayantara spent time working at the women's bespoke collection Dara Lamb before going on to grow her own alterations business. She's been featured in the Times, and her house-call tailoring services have become a treasure of the Williamsburg neighborhood. On the show today, Nayantara discusses the finer points of garment construction, reveals a few key differences between quality and carelessness, and offers listeners a few tips on alterations to consider the next time you're about to toss a favorite dress on the give-away pile. Plus, an AMAZING music set today full of great new tracks from Antony & The Johnsons, Icky Blossoms, Blonds, ERAAS, Dan Deacon, and Animal Collective. So tune in and turn it up, as we study style here on BreakThru Radio!

Justin Berry is an artist based in Bushwick Brooklyn. And for his latest project he's been taking landscape photographs inside war-themed video games. Much like the way landscape photographers like Ansel Adams explored the landscape in search of the perfect scene, Justin navigates the world of first person shooters using the screen has his camera. At first glance these virtual landscapes look just like black and white photos. It's only when you start to look closely and notice a pixel here, or a gun lying behind a rock, that the fiction becomes clear
Live audio from High Highs set at Glasslands on Sunday night. Plus, new episodes of The News (Latola talks about new albums out this week) and Empire Lights (what colors will shine forth from the Empire State Building tonight, and this weekend?)
