Have you heard about the exciting new photo contest BTR is hosting for Discovery Week? All you have to do is take a photo of something you've discovered recently (maybe a great new band from the Saturday show?) and send it in for a chance to be on the BTR photo blog! Cool, right? And as always, we've got a ton of awesome music for you on the show today, so make sure to stay tuned!
Today's show kicks off with a brand new track from Lawrence Arabia!
May 17. 5/17. 17/5/2012.
Screaming Females, Big D & The Kids Table and some comedy from Eugene Mirman on DJ Drew's Sunday Show
Today's Folk Wave includes brand new music from M Ward, Helado Negro, Lost In The Trees, and Damien Jurado.
Today's show takes a listener request and features exclusive live tracks from Great Lake Swimmers, Mascott, Slow Club, Noah And The Megauna, and more!
Today on the show we're playing some new "old favorites."  Remember 2009 when Bitte Orca, Veckatemist, and Merriweather Post Pavilion all came out, one right after the other?  I'm not sure there's been another moment quite like that in the three years since then.  That's been on my mind lately, so we're playing these new old giants on the show today- but from different albums, of course!  Who do you think we are, mainstream radio?  Psh.
