Another fine mix of electronic music is ready for you, including tunes by English four-piece Freeform Five, some spikey tech house by Stimming, Copenhagen dubstep by Frederick Olufsen, jazzy French house mixed with beautiful African vocals and instrumentation taken from a new St Germain album; we’ve got a reworked Moderat piece in the show and stuff by Tiga & Deetron.

Happy Spring! It is the first official day of the season, and I thought it was the perfect time to use our heads & do some beauty “spring cleaning.” Rubi Jones is a personal and editorial hairstylist based in Paris and New York, whose beautiful blog reflects her refined sensibilities and taste for timeless looks, combined with her savvy knowledge of the most recent trends. Trained at Bumble & Bumble here in NYC, Rubi’s styling work is effortlessly elegant and it’s easy to see why New York Magazine gave her the title “The Braid Whisperer.” On today’s show, Rubi talks about the career path that led her to styling, what made Bumble & Bumble a great training experience, some of the trends she spotted on the F/W runways, timeless hairstyles that transcend trends, a few of her favorite summer hair care products, and an exciting new project she’s recently launched. Plus, you’ll find a ton of new music in the playlist today, including a song off the solo debut from Arcade Fire member Will Butler, a track from the much-anticipated sophomore release from Brit band Evans the Death, and a new EP from talented up-and-comer Petite Noir. So join us for a simple springtime makeover with Sew & Tell on BTR!
