Retreat from the cold in the Listening Booth where DJRePete warms up the mix with an unseasonable surf track by Guantanamo Baywatch, upbeat alt via She-Devils, and a crowd-pleasing clap-track by Elliott Brood. Plus, tune in for the scoop on Sufjan Stevens new record The Greatest Gift, put out as an addendum to his 2015 album Carrie & Lowell—which was a tribute to his late mother. Hear one of several tracks reimagined and remixed for this companion release. That’s your weekend fix with DJRePete in the Listening Booth on BTRToday!
