On today’s show, we go deep into a few live tracks. The Live in San Francisco series is incredible, and we have a new Live Thee Oh Sees album, so to celebrate I’m kicking the show off with a bunch of live tracks. You can hear The Gossip in Liverpool. Bat For Lashes open for Radiohead, and Phosphorescent Live at the Music Hall. Plus, we’ve got our usual extraordinary pack of new music and old, all mixed together for your Saturday enjoyment.
It's the first Saturday in December, which means we're firmly in winter. And we've got a little mini-theme on the show today to celebrate that fact. Wintry songs from The Loom and Hot Panda will be on the show, plus exciting new tracks from The Sandwitches and Thee Oh Sees. And don't forget- if you want to stay up to date on all things BTR, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.

And finally, we have weird wolf facts. You'll just have to stay tuned to figure out what that means. And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
Happy Holidays! It's Winter Week on Breakthru, so this Friday's Sew & Tell is all about winter fashion. And this week's guest designs the perfect winter accessory that will keep you cozy *and* chic. Claudia Schulz is a Berlin-born, Vancouver-based designer, who started to experiment with making her own hats, after a lifetime spent collecting them. We should all be thankful that she did, because her creations are beautiful, sculptural, and elegant - at once basic go-to's and dramatic statement pieces. On today's show, Claudia will talk about her transition from social work to millinery, the materials and process she uses to create her designs, and the wide variety of sources she draws on for design inspiration - from Bauhaus architecture to Cape Town, South Africa. Plus, a playlist full of delightfully wintery tracks, featuring songs from Lia Ices, Miike Snow, Bon Iver, and Fleet Foxes, and a handy list of styling tips from Refinery 29 to keep your winter wardrobe in its finest sartorial shape. So settle in with your favorite scarf, and get ready for winter, Sew & Tell style!
On this God Bless Weirdmerica we're playing some very, very exciting new tracks.

And while you're here, don't forget to check out all of the other awesome programming we have for you (and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the updates).
