Merry Christmas Eve! I love Christmas Eve because it’s the quietest, most contemplative holiday of the year, at least as far as I’m concerned. So for today, I’ve put together a very quiet, contemplative mix. I hope these tracks get you in the mood, and prepare you for the day ahead tomorrow filled with presents and food and excitement! So cozy up and enjoy these weird soothing songs.
Happy September Saturday!  I hope everyone out there has been enjoying the sweater weather- I know I am.  There’s nothing better than being able to wear something snuggly AND get away with open toed shoes.  If you need your early fall perfectly soundtracked, then BTR is the sweater/sandals music combo you’ve been looking for!  We’ve got amazing new stuff on the show today from a Swedish band named Goat, an Irish band named So Cow, and a Canadian man named, of course, Moonface.  Stay tuned to check it all out!
Today on God Bless Weirdmerica we start the show off with an incredibly beautiful song by Julian Lynch, and we keep that calm going throughout. We also explore some of the genre’s very best “Bears” with both Grizzly Bear and Panda Bear packing a 1-2 punch at the end of the show. Hey- it’s summer. We get to celebrate. And as always, don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
Do we have any horror movie fans out there? I think that horror and New Weird America are two genres that blend excellently. Both take what we think of as normal and manipulate those ideas to make something new. That's why it's so appropriate that Animal Collective's Avey Tare has formed a band called Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks with appropriately creepy music. We play two tracks on the show today, plus more new music! Make sure to stay tuned!
