Hello and welcome to weird Wednesday! This is of course God Bless Weirdmerica, the show on BTR where I play new weird America, freak folk, and generally odd music. Odd to me, at least. We’ve got a great show for you today where we discuss the “canterbury scene,” my love for Spencer Krug, and hear great new music from Beth Orton, Grace Joyner, and more. And don’t forget to hop onto Facebook and give BTR a like!

And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud.
