Happy Holidays! Only two Thursdays left in December. Today I'll be playing some of the best tracks from 2015. Remember, next Thursday, 12/31 (New Year's Eve) I'll be rocking my absolute favorite songs from 2015. Stay tuned!
DJRePete kicks off your Wednesday on BTR with some high energy pop alt from Destroyer! Also, find out how to best keep tabs with BTR during CMJ coverage next week as well as where to tune in to plan your musical route. Plus, a wistful ballad by Soda Shop, trippy goodness with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and punk with Joanna Gruesome. And don’t miss album news from the culture mashup band Delhi 2 Dublin. DJRePete’s got your midweek fix on BTR!
DJRePete closes out the month with the debut of the new album by Setting Sun, Nashville electronica via MYZICA, and apropos sweet ballads with Sweet Badoo. Also on the program, RePete revisits the live album by the Eels from the UK’s Royal Albert Hall, keeps tabs with Summer Camp and Little Boots, and gets lost in a track by Thee Oh Sees. Plus, zen out with a folk alt set complete with strings via Destroyer and The Ghoul Goes West. That’s your September finale with DJRePete on BTR!
The Sunday Show with DJ Drew on BTR
The best of the best on BTR this week! Enjoy this Top 10 countdown on BTR!
The best of the best on BTR this week!
It’s nearly the end of August and great new music is still being released for 2015! First up, we have a reissue of the Reatards’ Grown Up Fucked Up, Jay Reatard’s first band and an excellent album. Plus, we’ve got new stuff from a very cool vocalist Briana Marela, and an exciting and delightfully weird new album from Angel Deradoorian, initially of Dirty Projectors fame. And of course, don’t forget to give BTR a like on Facebook!
It’s Surface Week on BTR, and fashion celebrates surface with print and pattern. On today’s show, I’m joined by dynamic entrepreneur Jesse Finkelstein who, along with his sister Meredith, is behind the creation of two unique design platforms: Print All Over Me and Byco. Print All Over Me (or PAOM) offers its users the opportunity to create digital patterns, then order garments or accessories printed with that design. Byco is a one-stop shop for designers who want to take their ideas from paper to production. Both sites put the power of creativity and fashion design into, well, YOUR hands, and serve as invaluable resources for independent designers. On today’s show, Jesse will talk about the formation of Byco and PAOM, the production process behind both concepts, the components of a successful design, Print All Over Me’s overnight success, Byco’s recent collaboration with ELLE, upcoming projects, and more. And I’ve got a playlist filled with fresh indie releases, including the latest from Wilco and The Mynabirds, along with tracks off the debut albums from “musical pranksters” Silvertron Youth Choir and up-and-coming British electro-artist Georgia. So get your surface ready for a stylish fall with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
DJ Drew's Sunday Show: Week of 08/23/15 with music from Reatards, Fake Tears, Land Lines, Deradoorian, Sweet Baboo
It's now very deep into 2015, so I have very nobly taken it upon myself to create a wonderful set of some of my favorite music of the year SO FAR. Basically it's a heavy rock set with bands like Vexx, Toupee, Coneheads, etc., followed by a cool pop set with bands like Fred Thomas, Katie Dey, and Honey Radar. So much good stuff! Listen to it!
