Today on Garbage Garage we’re saluting the President’s, plus playing some old favorites like Lizzo and Dirty On Purpose…
Happy Saturday! It’s been absolutely freezing here- good things we’ve got some hot tunes for your Saturday! We start of with some great garage rock from Dum Dum Girls and The Beets, we’ve got your dose of gospel with Mavis Staples, and even classical with Nils Frahm. That’s what BTR is all about.

For the several years photographer Daniel Cronin attended The Gathering of the Juggalos, an annual festival for die-hard fans of the horrorcore rap group The Insane Clown Posse. In his photographs, Daniel depicts Juggalos of every stripe, likening his approach to that of early 20th century German photographer August Sander who made egalitarian portraits of his countrymen. These photographs have been published in a book by Prestel, and I spoke with Daniel over the phone from Portland about his experiences at Gathering, misconceptions about Juggalo culture and some of his other projects.
Jonathan Monaghan makes short films that combine high end computer animation, with surreal and fantastical scenes drawn from religious themes, popular culture and history. In one of his pieces we watch a polar bear that resembles one of those from the popular coca-cola ad campaign, slowly staggering around in a shapeless black space, only to realize after three minutes, that we’ve been watching the bear as it slowly dies. Another piece, which Jonathan discusses on the show, features a lion, a black eagle, some medical devices, and a beheading. His piece Escape Pod was shown as part of a solo show at Bitforms Gallery here in New York.
This week on the show we have more brand new, or rather brand old, tracks from Death, who you can see a documentary about on Netflix called A Band Called Death. We’ve also got new new tracks from old band Pixies and brand new stuff from Wye Oak, that’s gone in a much different direction than their previous work. And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, SoundCloud and all of our social media sites!
