episode #247

Music is just pouring from the sky these days as labels push releases out in time for them to become holiday presents or so that sullen teenagers can spend their first semester brooding over them.  That’s fine by us (as far as we’re concerned, there’s no such thing as too much independent pop), and this week we jump right in to the new stuff and lead off with an undeniably catchy pop song from Dum Dum Girls. FYI: These ladies play Toronto on October 16th.

Next up, “Change the Sheets” is a taste from Kathleen Edwards‘ upcoming (as in 2012) release, Voyageur,  and “Amanaemonesia” is a curious and funky single from Chairlift who are also due to release an LP in the new year (and you gotta check out the song’s 80s-style video for the song on their website).

Along with supergroup Wild Flag, (featuring members of Sleater-Kinney and The Minders), we also play some new music from The Drums, Bjork, Real Estate and Ohbijou.  But enough words: music is for listening.  Press play, already!
