For our first episode sponsored by Urban Outfitters, we have a very special July 4th "best of" mix. Here we present you with reflections on the albums of our prior 10 shows, and put together our favorite songs from the records past. Perhaps feelings have changed, maybe we're stuck in our old ways, there's only one way to find out. COMPILATION MIX, ENJOY.
An eclectic mix awaits your BTR Wednesday with DJRePete: upbeat alternative with Saturday Looks Good To Me and Har Mar Superstar, electronica via the new Phoenix album and a Miike Snow remix of Passion Pit, and a chill beat with Grieves and TheSatisfaction. Plus, a slew of festivals to talk about including the Pygmalion, Arenal Sound, Electric Forest, First City, MASSV, and the Truck Music Festival going on in the otherwise storied student town of Oxford in the UK. And a few throwback tracks from BTR yesteryear as the station turns 8 years old including Paul and the Patients and Quitzow. Join the tunes with DJRePete on BTR Wednesday!
DJRePete starts your Wednesday soundtrack with new alternative from the Treetop Flyers and Teen. Plus, a set exclusively comprised of bands playing this weekend’s Governors Ball on Randall’s Island. Also tune in for a little known Lana Del Rey remix, a b-side by CHVRCHES, and a blues set that’s sure to please featuring Hazmat Modine—appropriate, as we approach this weekend’s Chicago Blues Festival in Millennium Park. Some decent ear candy, eh? Just 90 minutes with DJRePete on BTR!
Spend your day off with DJ Wynn as he shares music from Grandchildren, Wampire, Saturday Looks Good To Me, and Dungeonesse.
On today's show we review Saturday Looks Good to Me's most recent LP, One Kiss Ends it All, released on May 21st on Polyvinyl Records. It's the first album in six years that we've seen from Fred Thomas and all the contributors that have fluctuated with the band. Today is Saturday, and Saturday always looks good to me.
