Get thee to the Listening Booth today where DJRePete is spinning high energy alt from Dutch Party and Hey Marseilles, and electro bloc by Tenniscoats, and some lighter alt via Quilt and Damien Jurado. Plus, some choice throwbacks mixed in from Noah and the Whale, Passenger, and Justin Vernon’s two bands: Bon Iver and Volcano Choir. Also hit up bands playing this weekend’s Firefly Festival in Dover Delaware as well as the Best Kept Secret Festival in the Netherlands. And in this week’s spotlight, get lost with some trippy jazz freestyle from the likes of the Sunwatchers. That’s this week’s midweek fix with DJRePete on BTRToday!
DJRePete’s got your midweek soundtrack with brand new alternative from Bleached and Masha Qrella, electro trippy-ness from The Range and Beacon, and R&B throwbacks from Honey Larochelle and Meklit Hadero. You’ll also hear from Tycho and Lettuce, two acts playing this weekend’s Euphoria Fest in Austin. And in his inaugural weekly music spotlight, DJRePete harkens back to his Blues Hour days with a mix of funk from Mavis Staples, alt blues with M. Ward, and rock blues from Hill Country Revue. Check in with the new expanded edition of DJRePete on this BTRtoday Wednesday!
