Happy Wednesday! We’re taking it back a little old school today and playing some Neutral Milk Hotel and Jookabox back when he was Grampall Jookabox. We’ve also got exciting new tract Destroyer and Frog Eyes on the show, and I rehash a new favorite from Fenster. Don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, SoundCloud and Pinterest, too!
Joanna Newsom has a new album coming out soon, so I have been listening to her old records a lot lately! I start off with a track from her, then make a bee-line for 2005 to bring back hits of the first freak folk era, including Dirty Projectors and Akron/Family. From there, we go to more contemporary “freak pop” hits from CE Schneider Topical, Gem Jones, Miserable Chillers, and more!
It’s August, so if you haven’t been making the most of your summer it’s time to get to it! That’s why we’re doing a FUN show today. All of the songs are fun songs, and even if they’re sad, they’re still the fun kind of sad songs. Not sure what that means? Well then you’ll just have to listen to the show! And while you’re at it! Make sure to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, SoundCloud, an Pinterest!
The Folk Wave broadcasts every Saturday here on BTR. Today’s show includes music from Julian Lynch, Kendl Winter, Dirty Projectors and many more!
Today’s Folk Wave features an interview with Guts Club’s Lindsey Baker, along with two tracks from her new album “The Arm Wrestling Tournament”
