All posts for the month September, 2015

I wanted to share this one last week, but YACHT premiered it on a website that would only stream the song when Uber surge pricing was in effect in Los Angeles. Oh, these kooky kids and their gimmicks… Luckily, the band has now provided a lyric video that you can watch whenever you feel like it, rush hour or not.

I know i’m not writing much these days. Life does what it does. Anyhow, Heaven’s Gate has a new album though and it’s good. Check out this track.

How do you know you’re on a artistic hot streak? When you can release an entire album of cat samples and still be considered a critical darling. Run the Jewels took their victory lap to Colbert’s Late Show last week, with a little help from their friends in TV on the Radio.
It’s Sunday, so you know the drill by now: the radio show is on tonight, 9PM til midnight. Stream it live over at www.wrct.org.
Welcome to another edition of the Interstellar Radio Shower Week in Review. Here in we navel gaze.

Matt Picks a Jim Song 

I waffled a bit on whether or not to choose last week’s Heat Dust post, but I’m ultimately going to have to go with Saintseneca’s well-curated indie pop, which I’ve found myself returning to since Jim posted it up on Wednesday.




Jim Picks a Matt Song

I really enjoyed the angst of Yautja and though i’m not typically a huge synth guy, that piece by Mark McGuire is quite good. So it may be a bit boring for me to pick the Black Lips, but this tune was so very enjoyable.




Drunk Radio Shower – Poland Edition

The International Radio Shower was back in it’s full on glory. Really, all you can do is visit the full post and try not to cry.

Sunday,  September 20th Radio Show Playlist

And this week there was no radio show. We apologize but we’ll be back on the air tomorrow.

This popped up in my newsfeed yesterday via WFMU. Hard to argue with either as this new release from Natural Snow Building is great. Clearly a band I need to familiarize myself with.

Herein we listen to music from Poland. And Drink. And live blog and tweet about it. Join along from home. Share what you think or what you like.

8:00pm Let’s start this out with some stoner rock. With an EP titled “Weednight”, sorry to tell you coppers, we’re clean here. But this music is pretty good.

8:10pm How about some lady rock? One thing we noticed in our initial perusals is that musicians in Poland are very sad. Even these ladies seem somewhat sad. Oh this band makes me thing mazzy star.

8:20pm not drunk yet. but more music from Poland is coming. Here is a song called Alice from a band named Thesis.

8:30pm The masses unanimously insisted on this track. drunk’n’roll for the drunk radio shower.

8:40pm David picked this one. MORE POLISH MUSIC!!! What do you think? Check out #drunkradioshower below. They are on facebook.

8:50pm Going with this one for the artwork and the fact that they’re signed to Bat Shit Records. Can’t imagine being disappointed with it.

9:00pm our first completely random pick of the night. Mikroorganizmy. One of those names…

9:10pm if ANXIETY is your thing. A pick from the Jennifer machine. The band is Folder. Yes, it’s from Poland.

9:20pm That escalated nicely at the end of dreaming. Shawn has connected remotely. Shit now getting real. Here is some Torn Shore.

9:30pm ok time to move on. Lisa on the plate. Something different I presume.

9:40pm That was solid. Here is a random pick. Deep thoughts to follow.

9:50pm ok, let’s try this now. Because we are into literal band names tonight.

9:53pm cutting off that horribleness. Let’s try this pick from David. Then we’ll get Mahogs in the mix.

10:00pm Mahogany album art picked this one. We need something really good so let’s hope…

10:10pm that was great! So, how about music recorded in your dad’s ass?

10:17pm okay we need to go lofi. That went a little too jam band after a bit. And who doesn’t like a dog driving a car?

10:26pm ok, now that we’ve farted out our souls. We need to ground ourselves with some field recordings.

10:33pm Lisa going hip hop tonight.

10:37pm and Tony walks in with a solid pick. Something less random.

10:43pm It’s a bit sketchy to from Poland and be named Deathcamp Project. But they know about Well-Known Pleasures. Good job Margot.

10:50pm Well we hope that music wasn’t too weird for ya. How about a brief glimpse into 8 bit remixes?

10:55pm Jen and Mahogany picked this. It has potential I think.

11:02 more from dj tony. yes, we are drunk. fuck you.

11:08 how about what we hear is a Polish classic? We’ve been more frustrated than usual with finding shit we like. Our divergent tastes in house might be contributing but here is a classic nonetheless.

11:12pm ok, the newcomer Sam picked it. So it’s gotta be good right?

11:15pm Is it us? Poland, why don’t you have better music? we are going one more time. Chile was much easier I must say. #worldwar3

11:20pm ok, that was better. Let’s try False Month. This has potential.

11:39pm we got distracted by foosball. wanted punk bad.

11:45pm This can go a lot of directions, but lets try it.

11:49pm and Nacht und Nebel!!!! That’s where our heads are. alcohol blesses.

11:55pm Matt and Jim have taken over. Therefore the music has gotten better. Sorry peeps.

12:03am oi oi polloi

12:06am government flu. because we’re ready for this.

12:11am ok maybe time to move on an awesome Polish label…

12:15am things are good and we’re rolling with Nikt Nic Nie Wie Records…

12:22am Ok let’s try pagan records.

12:30am the reviews on this one are good. So we thought we’d give it a shot. It has tangental potential.
