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 on the show we’re playing two tracks from the resurrected folk hero Linda Perhacs. It doesn’t get more New Weird America than Linda. In 1970 she recorded a folk album that was lost to time, until New Weird America folks resurrected it decades later as a forgotten masterpiece. And now she has a brand new album out for us to share! All that and more on today’s show, plus don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and SoundCloud.
We’ve got some great new music for you on God Bless Weirdmerica today. Keep your ears peeled for new ones from Bibio, Xiu Xiu, and Gardens & Villa. Plus, songs I haven’t played before from Raleigh Moncrief, Setting Sun, and even a great old one from Telepathe. Plus, if you want more BTR (and who doesn’t?) check us out on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Soundcloud, and Instagram!
