Hola everyone. Hope all is well in the land of YOU!
Today on the show the band Soft Swells will be dropping by the Indie1031.com studios for a quick performance to promote their new album “Soft Swells” out today. It’s pretty damn good. I’m sue you’ve heard the song “Put It on the Line” that we’ve been playing on Indie1031. If not, here’s a link to the band’s FB page for a listen.
Until the band shows up I need to figure out what to play. Shall it be DRINKIN’ songs or GUILTY PLEASURES?
Shoot me an email or a message on Twitter – @TeddRoman with your thoughts. In the meantime, enjoy a drunk Hillbilly video.
I think I may have to stop by my local “shop” on the way home to pick up a brownie. Just so I can sit back and really enjoy this ridiculously awesome time lapse video of the night sky by Randy Halverson & Temporal Distortion. AMAZING!
For this week’s show I’ve decided to pull out two albums that I absolutely LOVE and spin them from front to back, top to bottom, side to side, so on and so forth. The first is Dramarama’s Cinéma Vérité.
Yes, this is the album that contains “Anything Anything”. The song that people still call the station to ask “What’s that song that goes I’ll give you anything??”. Cinéma Vérité is by far, as far as I’m concerned, one of the greatest albums you’ve never heard. It’s highly underrated and something EVERYONE should own.
The second album for “Straight Through” is Gotye’s Making Mirrors. Not really much to say here other than the album is great and it’s growing on me more each day. Everyone knows “Somebody That I Used To KNow”. Here’s your chance to fall in love with the rest of the album. Just to make it a little more interesting for you, I’ve included a mini documentary on how Wally (that’s his name) recorded the album. I must say, it’s pretty awesome. Please enjoy.
