Third Eye Weekly is a brand new current events and news podcast on BreakThru Radio that focuses on stories that have fallen through the cracks of the 24-hour news cycle. Flavored with elements of story telling and the art of the spoken word, guests and experts chime in on what’s happening in our world that no one else is talking about.
It’s the holy grail of God Bless Weirdmericas!  Both Animal Collective and Beach House have new music out, and we’re playing multiple tracks from both of them!  That’s not even counting the new Alan Watts and Steffaloo tracks we have coming your way, too.  For more from BTR, make sure to check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
New music from Orcas, Sharon Van Etten, Sugarman 3, and Moonface
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and BTR is taking this week to celebrate women of all ages! Sew & Tell has the perfect guest: Elizabeth Roberts, pioneering force and creative visionary behind Wraphabillement, a line of uniquely designed outerwear. From a background in advocacy, and a deep devotion to the fight against breast cancer, Elizabeth gained experience in public policy and business savvy, which ultimately led her into an unexpected, but exciting, new territory: fashion design. What began with a sketchbook at a Parisian cafe has become a collection of outerwear, specifically tailored for the life of a busy woman. Wraphabillement blends practicality, safety, durability, and style in one incredible multi-functioning garment, so it’s no wonder that Elizabeth’s designs have become the official outwear for the Royal Danish Ballet Company. On today’s show, Elizabeth will talk us through the incredible journey that led her from New York to Seattle, Microsoft to fashion design, and she’ll share inspirations, insight, and the passions that sustain her. Plus, a whole playlist of women on today’s show, including new music from Beach House, Ane Brun, and Gemma Ray, as well as favorites from earlier this year. All that ahead in this special woman-power-hour of Sew & Tell!
Today’s mix is for the Moms. Bossa Nova from Elis Regina, Soul from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and gorgeous harmonies from Grizzly Bear and The Morning Benders
A personal highlight of today’s show is Sri-Lankan American songwriter Bhi Bhiman’s “Kimchee Line”

NEW STUFF! From Ben Kweller, Sharon Von Etten and Dr Dog on DJ Drew’s Sunday Show
It’s almost March, which means we’re heading into the heaviest month of winter, but it also means that there’s only one more month until spring!!  That means we need to celebrate and beat the winter blues, which is why I started this week’s show with some really great punk bands, to energize us and keep us warm while we wait.  In the meantime, check out BTR’s Facebook and Twitter!
What IS genre these days, anyways?  Whatever you want it to be, I guess.  I think that’s lucky for us, because that means we’re playing a lot of great music on the show today, all with the uniting thread that it’s just a tiny bit weird.  Or a lot weird.  Depending on where you’re coming from.  So check out great tunes from Dustin Wong, Islands, and Of Montreal, and don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter, too!

I know that NYC is still celebrating the Superbowl hardcore, and I hope you fully enjoyed the amazing, nail-biting win… BUT. Let’s be serious. The Superbowl of Style is just around the corner – NY Fashion Week! So we’re gonna get down to business and talk fashion today. And speaking of business – I have the honor of highlighting an incredible organization and business venture on today’s show. Awamaki is a non-profit based in Peru, that works with local women to preserve indigenous weaving techniques, and to further their skills as craftspeople. Towards that end, Awamaki recently launched a design residency program, spearheaded by Annie Millican. The Awamaki Lab residency offers young designers an opportunity to create a collection of clothing, built around these beautiful traditional Peruvian textiles. Awamaki Lab just celebrated the launch of its second collection, F/W 2012, designed by collaborators and fellow Parsons grads Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm. The pieces are timeless yet modern, with references to menswear that retain a thoroughly feminine sensibility. On today’s show, Andria and Courtney talk about their experiences in Peru, learning about local fibers and natural dyes, and how anthropologists and explorers from the turn of the century led to these gorgeous garments. Plus, tons of great new music today from Dr. Dog, Sharon Van Etten, of Montreal, Young Magic and more! So prep yourself for Fashion Week with your first collection of F/W 2012…
“What’s up?” “Not much, you?” “Oh, I’m just listening to that Rock Show on BTR.” “What’s ‘Rock Show’?” “Oh it’s this really great radio show on BTR, all the best rock music you could ever hear in one easy place!” “Sounds awesome, bro. How can I listen to it?” “Just go to BTR today and type in the “rock show” and you’re in– it’s as easy as that.” “That’s rad. I am going to listen now, thanks!” “OK cool. See you tonight?” “Yep!” “Love you.” “Love you too, bye.” “Bye!”
