We have a lot of heavy hitters on the show today!!  Brand new tracks from Panda Bear, Deerhoof, or Mark McGuire on their own would be enough to rejoice about, but all three together?  Well in that case, you KNOW we’re having a lot of fun on the show today.  But we haven’t forgotten about up-and-comers either.  Check out a brand new track from very cool artist Elisa Ambrogio!  And of course, don’t forget to follow BTR on tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and SoundCloud.
On this week's episode, we take it to the MAX and back! Think you can handle it? Tune in to find out!
Covers from Anna Calvi, flashbacks from The Relatives, and sly looks from Alvvays. All of this and much more on Monday's Mix with DJ Wynn.
It's almost June, and we're celebrating an amazing week of weather with Prince Rama's weirdo summer anthem, Summer of Love. Plus, we've got great weird tracks from Animal Collective, Black Dice, and Here We Go Magic. All that and more on the show today, and don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, and tumblr.

Today I talk about and play new music from Hospitality and Gardens & Villa
This week on The Hash, DJs Molly and Dane discuss what the 2010 film The Kids Are All Right does well and where it falls short. Then, the two talk about the positive impact MTV shows Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant have on teen pregnancy rates. The show wraps up with a conversation about feminine things men do.

It's David and Goliath week here on BTR, which is extremely appropriate, since I would say most of the music we play on the station definitely goes in the David category. It's also the first day of February, which means we're on the long back end of winter! Either way, we've got great music to keep your warm all Saturday long! And don't forget, follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Soundcloud!
This week on Sew & Tell, I got to speak with Jesse Finkelstein, one half of the entrepreneurial team behind a new group of web-based platforms dedicated to paving the way for independent and custom designs. Jesse and his sister Meredith launched their inaugural design site, Byco, in 2011. Two years later, they introduced the pattern-centric Print All Over Me, a site which allows users to upload their own photos or prints to one of eight different blank templates, ranging from accessories to garments. Not surprisingly, Jesse and Meredith’s sites are revolutionizing the landscape of independent design; on today’s show, Jesse joins me to talk about the origin of Byco, how his team is able to produce small-batch and limited run pieces, why strict perimeters are a designer’s best friend, some upcoming design platforms and new projects for his team, and more. Plus, a playlist dedicated solely to the first 2014 releases, featuring brand new music from Portland’s Ages and Ages, Santa Barbara-based Gardens & Villa, Wilco members’ side project The Autumn Defense, and Brit folk band Peggy Sue. So practice your best Tim Gunn impersonation, because today, we’ll show you how YOU can “make it work!”
