Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Before you feast tomorrow, feast your ears right now on this weird meal! We’ve got lots of weird for you, including, you got it, Thanksgiving. For some sides, we’ve got new Cass McCombs, Breakfast, and of course, the gravy of New Weird America, Ducktails. Cool analogy, right? Listen today, and check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and SoundCloud, too!
It’s a delightfully weird Wednesday again here on BTR. I’m really digging the new album from German soundscape creators Phantom Horse, so we’re leading off with them today. We visit some old favorites like Sharon Van Etten and some really, really old favorite like Sufan’s Stevens’ title track from Enjoy Your Rabbit. So make sure to stay tuned!
Stressed about style? This week’s guest is here to help! George Brescia is a celebrity stylist, red carpet critic, media fashion expert, and author of the recently published Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life: Because You Can’t Go Naked, a guide to complete personal transformation through your closet. Join us today as George talks about his fashion career, the role of a stylist, some guidelines for looking great on or off the red carpet, a few of his favorite looks from Sunday’s Emmy Awards, his own go-to style staple for fall fashion, and more. Plus, I’ve got a great mix of music featuring songs from Florida’s Surfer Blood, experimental art pop diva My Brightest Diamond, and up-and-coming Wisconsinites PHOX. So stick around and unwind in style, with George Brescia on BTR’s Sew & Tell!
Happy Birthday BTR! I can’t believe it’s been ten years, and God Bless Weirdmerica has been part of it for nearly seven! I’m very honored to still be serving up all that good weirdness seven years in. Today on the show we’ve got some fantastic newbies, like Swahili Blonde and Native Harrow. Make sure to give BTR a birthday like on Facebook and stick around until Fever Ray at the end of the show!
