This week, I’m out in sunny Los Angeles, so we’re playing some of my favorite LA bands: No Age, Mika Miko, and of course, Best Coast (though I have to admit- I still think the East Coast is the best coast. Seasons, right!?!?). We’ve also got a ton of great new music on the show, including the very strange and exciting multi-instrumentalist Nnamdi Ogbannaya from Chicago. Plus, we even do a set of 2000s second-wave shoe gaze with the likes of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Stay tuned!
