BTR’s Timothy Dillon gets us stoked for season three of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Plus, How Old Saint Nick keeps up with new technology.
DJRePete brings you a midweek dose of alt rock via The Everymen, bluesy folk with Bill Fay, and a set with a beat from the likes of Vybz Kartel. Plus, check out a pair of remixes by Passion Pit and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. And as summer winds down, tune in for info on a trio of upcoming festivals going down in Berlin, Paraguay, and a BBQ-inspired one in the US heartland. That’s your Wednesday fix on BTR with DJRePete!
We’ve already had some HUGE albums this summer, but today we’re playing some of the best songs that this year has produced so far. Not only do we have new Sean Rowe, who is New York’s best kept secret, but we also have new Yeasayer, Darlings, Dirty Beaches, Dan Deacon, and WHY? So make sure to stay tuned through the whole show! And tune in to all of the other programming BTR has to offer today, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
It’s almost fall! And you know what that means – the return of pumpkin lattes, rosy cheeks, and classic fall fashion. Today’s Sew & Tell guest puts a spin on classic style for her F/W 2012 collection – Lizz Wasserman of the L.A.-based popomomo creates women’s wear pieces that are heady, sophisticated, and still playful. The former creative designer for Free People launched her own line with the desire to make changes for the sustainable, and has found no shortage of fans for her collections. Each season is inspired by icons, cultural movements, and philosophies that range from Geogia O’Keefe to the Russian Constructivists. With that level of creative approach, it’s no surprise to discover that Lizz comes from a background in sociology and anthropology, and on today’s show, we’ll learn about how she made the leap from European squat culture to her own label, her method for developing one-of-a-kind prints, the inspiration behind her F/W 2012 pieces, and how her closet has changed as she’s moved into her 30’s. All that, plus a stellar playlist, including brand new Yeasayer, samples of the new collaborative projects Poor Moon and OMBRE, and a gorgeous cover of the Arcade Fire from two San Francisco-based musicians. So grab a cup of cider and get ready to take notes – fall is fashionably early on BTR!
Midweek on BTR means DJRePete and an enlightened blend of alternative from the likes of Lovedrug, electronica crossover from the Trailer Trash Tracys, and a jazz beat with TheSatisfaction. Plus, tune in to hear the brand new Miike Snow album, music-before-you-can-buy-it from The Spinto Band, and a collection of BTR throwbacks including Almost Charlie. Also, clowns and babies just to keep things creepy. It’s all today, your BTR Wednesday with DJRePete!
