The Top 10 tracks on BTR!
Back to school! But there's only great music to look forward to! There were so many good releases this month, more than in any September in recent history: Animal Collective, Jens Lekman, The Fresh & Onlys, Deerhoof, oh my! And don't forget about our Discovery Artist, Flyin Fisch.
Happy Fashion Week! I hope you're all enjoying a week full of beautiful new designs, debuts, and drama. In honor of this special occasion, I have a very exciting guest on the show for you today - Tara St. James is the talented designer behind the acclaimed Brooklyn-based women's wear line Study NY. A native of Montreal, Tara studied fashion at university before becoming Creative Director for the label Covet. As her concerns with sustainable and responsible production grew, Tara eventually left Covet to begin her own line in 2009. Study NY was winner of the prestigious Eco Domani grant for sustainable design in 2011, and it's easy to see why: Tara's pieces are complex, clever, rigorous, and elegant. On today's show, Tara will share about the path that led her to start Study, her work with an ancient Japanese dyeing technique, some of the biggest issues facing sustainable production today, and what's ahead for Study NY. Plus, great new music on the show from Deerhoof, Animal Collective, The Fresh & Onlys and more, so stick around and get ready to take notes... this is Fashion Week with Study NY here on Sew & Tell!

It's Bike Week on BTR! First, we sit down with Morrigan McCarthy of Restless Collective, a two-person multimedia project that aims to explore the world, figuratively and literally, by bike. Along with her partner, Alan Winslow, McCarthy completed an 11,000-mile bike tour of the United States. And later, we head to the Motor City for an interview with Zak Pashak, a young Canadian politician and music entrepreneur that's breaking into the bike business in a big way. Despite the city's bad rap, Pashak fell in love with Detroit and opened his own bicycle manufacturing plant, Detroit Bikes.
Today on the show we of course have some great new, weird songs, but we also have a few wild cards on the show. Like Tim Heidecker's project Heidecker & Wood. The music isn't exactly New Weird America, but I posit that the idea behind it is exactly what the genre is all about. Check it out on the show!

Harold Eugene Edgerton, Football Kick, 1938 Today on the show we are going to be talking about sports. My guest, curator David Little, has just put together an exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts called The Sports Show: Athletics As Image and Spectacle. The show charts the cultural significance of sports media from the early days of photography to the present day. It includes work from well known artists like Andy Warhol, Andreas Gursky and Henri Cartier-Bresson, as well as  news photographs, television footage, film and video. This range of media sheds light on the myriad ways that our politics, racial tensions, national identities and cultural values are reflected in sports. The Sports Show also reveals some of the surprising artistic per-cursors to the way we visually experience sports today. For example, the concept behind instant replay, David suggests, was developed back in the 1890s by a photographer named Eadweard Muybridge who made stop-action photographs of bodies in motion. Other visual conventions that we take for granted in modern sports broadcasts --- telephoto close ups, on the field shots, aerial views from the Goodyear blimp --- were pioneered in photographs and films by artists Alexander Rodchenko and Leni Reifenstahl, Hitler's infamous propagandist. David recently spoke with me over the phone from Minneapolis about the history of sports images and why he thinks sports have been largely absent from critical discussion in visual art. `Eadweard Muybridge, Animal Locomotion Plate 344, 1887 Paul Pfeiffer, The Saints, 2007 Martin Munkacsi, Spectators at a Sports Event, from the series “Crowd,” 1933 Unknown photographer, Babe Ruth, 1919 Alexander Rodchenko, Horse Race, 1935 Leni Riefenstahl, Jesse Owens, 1936 Roger Welch, O.J.
