Today we have a very special, never before been done God Bless Weirdmerica. If Michael Jordan is the King of Pop, then I believe that Spencer Krug is the King of Weird. So today, we’re paying tribute to the 36-year-old Canadian by playing songs from all of his bands. And when you think about them all, it’s truly staggering: Moonface, Frog Eyes, Swan Lake, Sunset Rubdown, not to mention the classed now-defunct Wolf Parade. So much great music to explore, and check it all out on the show today. And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Sound Cloud!!
