Joanna Newsom has a new album coming out soon, so I have been listening to her old records a lot lately!

From there, we go to more contemporary “freak pop” hits from CE Schneider Topical, Gem Jones, Miserable Chillers, and more!

It’s Climate Change Week here on BTR, and I’m delighted to have Catherine Young, the innovative designer, artist and scientist behind The Apocalypse Project, on today’s show. Catherine has worked for years designing interactive art pieces, increasingly focused around issues of the environment and sustainability. Two years ago, she began working on an imaginative, multi-faceted presentation called The Apocalypse Project, which offers visitors an opportunity to interact with theoretical solutions to projected problems resulting from climate change. Catherine has made scientific research tangible, immediate and personal through this project, offering glimpses into the future of such universal experiences as food, entertainment, beauty and fashion. On today’s show, Catherine will talk about the development of The Apocalypse Project, its Climate Change Couture and Ephemeral Marvels Perfume collections, how the project has changed her own approach to fashion consumption, and more. Plus, I’ve got some news about an important new initiative called Fashion Revolution Day (which is today!) and how you can participate, and as always a fantastic line-up of new music featuring Southwest band Calexico and North Carolina’s The Mountain Goats, along with songs from two very talented but under-the-radar singer-songwriters, Adam Torres and Ambrosia Parsley. All that’s coming up this hour, so grab your cutest rain boots and wade into the climate change discussion with Sew & Tell on BTR!

This week on the Daily Beat we look at Tribeca Film Institute’s Interactive Summit for 2015 and the immersive, new approaches to storytelling.
Every year in the Japantown section of San Francisco the Cherry Blossom Festival takes place. It’s a spring-time celebration of all things Japanese. Several streets are closed of for blocks in either direction. There are parades, concerts, Cosplayers, Lolitas and oh yeah, street food as far as the eye can see. The most anticipated was the Hello Kitty food truck. Basically it doesn’t even have to serve good food. It just has to be cute, and the lines will form. If you enjoy a crisp Sapporo, Takoyaki, fried mochi and great people watching then this is the event to come to.
