RADIO BROADCAST #314
Fanatic! A warm weather influence is upon our show. My apologies to those still digging themselves out of the snow.
We are very happy to be able to roll out all this great music for you. I have played all these tunes through twice now and it’s all sounding good. We hope you like it as well.
In our second hour, we have a great lead off track. VUM has finished a new album called Cryptocrystalline and has sent us a track from it called "Katrine." VUM gave us permission to play the track. "Katrine" will be released on the band's Bandcamp site on April 7. You can go here for info: https://vummusic.bandcamp.com/ or here: http://vummusic.com/
There is no set date on when the full album will be out but VUM will keep in touch with us and we will keep you informed.
There will be a video for "Katrine" released on April 14. I think you will be able to check it out at the same site address.
Lastly, the band will be playing a show at a venue called Jewel's Catch One in L.A. on April 19.
Jennifer from VUM said that will be presented by The Church on York, and their website will be the place to go for details.
"Katrine" sounds great, can’t wait to hear the rest!
I have been doing as much listening as possible. Sometimes the schedule gets the better of me. I actually keep a list of the records I listen to in the order I play them in so I can try to keep track. It’s actually quite helpful.
We have been playing a lot of tracks from that new Wand album, I hope you have been enjoying them. I got the LP version a few nights ago. Wand is one of those bands where the digital version is fine but the vinyl really gets it. If you like what you’ve been hearing on the show, I think you will really dig the vinyl. Also, the Suzuki Junzo album 7 on LP is excellent.
Thanks for tuning in and STAY FANATIC!!!
