episode #235

We’re back at it this week, getting by with a little help from our friends through requests. Things start off with Iowa-via-Montreal’s Little ScreamThe Golden Record has been renting a lot of time in our heads lately, so give it a listen.

Continuing the ladies’ rock out is Kelli Schaefer, who was recommended by Michael. She’s a west-coast indie with the voice and cadence reminiscent of Bjork, and her Ghost of the Beast is one of those rare albums that creeps up on you and quietly blows you away.

Megs stumbled upon this cool Adult Swim Singles Project, and we play a track featuring Chairlift‘s Caroline Polachek with Washed Out, along with the other side to a release by the mysterious Purity Ring.

Leading with a track sent along to us by Amy, we even fit in a summer pop set with some LA artists, and play a fantastic track by Family of the Year, as well as a track by Seattle’s The Cave Singers, an off-shoot of Pretty Girls Make Graves.

Next week: Gomez, Chad VanGaalen, Miracle Fortress, and Cults.
