episode #252

Odds and ends; bits and bites; crunch ‘n munch. This week’s full of one-offs and left-behinds, and we’re happy to play them before we get to the more album-heavy end-of-year shows.

It’s a Happy Thanksgiving for a lucky American listener because we have a random and brand new Jens Lekman song to throw her way, along with similarly freshly squeezed material from fellow Yanks Atlas Sound, and Wales’ Los Campesinos! The Campesinos, it seems, are not happy kids anymore.

A long lost Iron & Wine track goes well with the Great Lake Swimmers playing a classic Grapes of Wrath tune (from a neat compilation that has current Canadian artists covering 90s trailblazers).  And since the XX cover we had last week went down so smoothly, why not another one?

We wind down with some Vaccines, who are well positioned in our collection of year-end favourites, and a neat a cappella version of a Panda Bear tune (the lead track of this year’s Tomboy) that I thought would be good to send us off into the night…
