You wouldn’t believe the amount of great music on the show this week if I told you! Ok, I’m going to tell you: we have new albums from The Very Best (who are, in my opinion, the actual very best), Laura Marling, and Waxahatchee! I loved Cerulean Salt, so you can bet I’m excited for a new record from her. Plus, we have a ton amazing things happening at BTR this week, so make sure to follow us on Facebook to stay up to date!
It’s the first of two God Bless Weirdmericas for December 2014, and we have a great wintry mix for you today! It’s snowy and moody (Kate Bush’s Misty from 50 Words For Snow), but we also have some earnest rock to lead us into that Christmastime feeling of hopefulness (Neutral Milk Hotel). Check out all the weirdness on the show today, and when you’re done, check out BTR on Facebook to stay up to date on all the goings-on around the station!!
Today on God Bless Weirdmerica we’re playing a lot of sad but beautiful songs. Maybe the fall weather puts you in the mood for that kind of thing?

And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, and tumblr for all of the latest updates on the station!
Today on the show we feature brand new tracks from a smart, fun band appropriately called literature, a familiar floaty songstress called JJ, and a live band track from way way back from fan favorites Holiday Shores. All that plus, your perfect soundtrack to one of the last summer Saturdays! So sit back, relax, and enjoy BTR, and while you’re at it, check us out on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, and SoundCloud!
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.

And as always, don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
