On today’s show, we go deep into a few live tracks. The Live in San Francisco series is incredible, and we have a new Live Thee Oh Sees album, so to celebrate I’m kicking the show off with a bunch of live tracks. You can hear The Gossip in Liverpool. Bat For Lashes open for Radiohead, and Phosphorescent Live at the Music Hall. Plus, we’ve got our usual extraordinary pack of new music and old, all mixed together for your Saturday enjoyment.
Garbage Garage is really living up to its name today, because we’ve got a mixture of everything from garage rock to folk to some Brazilian international music, and a few things in between. Plus, we’re delving deep, deep into the archive all the way back to 2008 part 2, for the second installment of the Garbage Garage nostalgia trip. And don’t forget to download the brand new BTR app and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud.
Happy six year anniversary God Bless Weirdmerica! That’s right; we’ve been serving up all the newest, all the weirdest tunes for you over the past six years. Find something that doesn’t quite fit into any established genre? Things that are unique and live on their own? Then you’ll have found them on this show. We’ve seen so many great artists and great albums, and today I play some of my faves, some that date back all the way to my very first show. So enjoy! Here’s to six more years of total weirdness!
Today is the day that Brazil gets to either redeem themselves somewhat or embarrass themselves further in the World Cup third place game, but the big show is really tomorrow with Germany and Argentina. Everyone knows though that a summer July Saturday is a party waiting to happen, so even though the third place game is today, we’re treating this like it’s going to be the best summer Saturday of all time here on BTR. We’ve got your breezy summer soundtrack. With bands like Beverly and Mark McGuire, you can just sit back with a gin and tonic in hand and watch the Netherlands do what they will with Brazil. And as always, make sure to check out BTR on social media!
Merry Christmas! Christmas is one of my favorite days of the entire year, so I've put together the perfect weird folk Christmas show for you. It's a cozy one- after you've opened presents, grab a cocoa and curl up with your new book and enjoy these cold-weather warm-heart songs! Happy Holidays! I hope it's a great one for you.
