DJRePete is single hunting on the Wednesday edition of BTR, with brand new albums dropping from the Born Ruffians and the Generationals. Also among the mix, new trippy electro beats from Houses, alternative from English Singles, and a lo-fi track that belongs on vinyl by Dump. Plus, set your travel calendar with info on a pair of festivals in France and Budapest. And for good measure, a few choice throwbacks mixed in from the likes of Peter Bjorn & John and My Teenage Stride. How’s that for a spring-fresh mix on BTR with DJRePete?
Monday's Mix features new music from Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow, Oberhofer, Akron/Family, and Thee Oh Sees.
In honor of the approaching Earth Day, this week's Sew & Tell guest is a designer who has found a solution for waste management through stylish design. Sheila Odessey weaves together cotton and strips of plastic grocery bags to create fashion-forward, functional handbags and totes! Her Spring 2013 Collection is full of bright colors, whimsical ginghams, and beach-friendly bags. On today's show, Sheila will talk about her decades of experience as a weaver in New York's Garment Center, how she got the idea to turn plastic waste into a chic accessory, the incredible range in "hand" of plastic bags, a few future plans for her line, and more. Plus, Dane and I talk favorite bags and gossip about the latest on Mad Men, and there's a mix full of brand new music from Akron/Family, Oberhofer, Houses, and more. Get ready for some seriously earth-friendly style, here on BTR!
