Ooooh boy, today on the show I get to play you an old song from one of my all time favorite old bands- The Unicorns.  They broke up over ten years ago, and now they’re playing for the first time since!  And speaking of old favorites, we go on a walk down memory lane today with Bishop Allen and Orenda Fink.  It’s all here on BTR, and all you have to do is sit back, relax, and listen.  Oh, and make sure to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram!

We’re keeping it goddamn chill on this week’s ‘sode… Super chill, bro. So sit down, relax, take a chill pill and enjoy 🙂
This week’s Sew & Tell is possibly one of the most important we will ever feature. I’m joined today by Bangladeshi photojournalist Ismail Ferdous, who documented the Rana Plaza factory collapse on the day it happened: April 24, 2013. Ismail’s images make it impossible to ignore the human suffering and heartbreak that resulted from that tragedy, and show intimate, tangible images of grief and devastation. Fellow photographer and filmmaker Nathan Fitch met Ismail at a workshop, and, moved by his images, the two began a collaboration that would ultimately lead to the creation of their Cost of Fashion initiative. On today’s show, Ismail generously shares his memories from being at Rana Plaza on the day of the collapse and some of the stories he’s heard from survivors, and Ismail and Nathan talk about the inherently problematic fast fashion system, and the ways in which they hope to raise awareness through Cost of Fashion. And as always, I’ve got some new music in the mix today including tracks from Southern Florida’s Helado Negro, Australian pop quintet The Trouble with Templeton, a single off the upcoming June release from The Antlers, and more. Please join us today on BreakThru Radio as we learn more about the single deadliest garment industry disaster in history, and some small and not-so-small ways in which we can help effect some urgently-needed change.
It’s Selling Out Week on BTR! On today’s show, we’re talking with author Holly George Warren about her new book, “A Man Called Destruction: The Life and Music of Alex Chilton” and how much of the DIY legend’s life set the stage for many artists we cherish today. Plus, the latest in underreported news and independent media.
