RADIO BROADCAST #316
Fanatic! Very happy to be able to bring this show to you. We were generously sent copies of the new Fall album and have the green light to play tracks from it. Sub-Lingual Tablet, the band’s 31st studio album, will not be out for several weeks but Cherry Red Records was really cool about it and we have music.
There are two versions of the album. The CD version and the LP version. Not all the songs on each are different from the other, but several of them are and the differences are very noticeable. If you look at the playlist, we will be listening to two versions of one Fall song at the top of each hour. So far, I am liking the LP version of the album better. We will be laying more tracks on you as the weeks go on.
Also, there is a new Ty Segall/King Tuff split live album called Live at Pickathon, Vol. 2. It’s on Easy Sound. The pre-order copies are all gone but it will be released for all to dig on May 4. This is LP only. The label kindly sent us files of the songs and full permission to start playing them and of course, we got right on that and are rocking a track from it in our first hour. Here is where you can get moinfo. It’s a really cool record.
For all you HTRK fans out there, great news. The Australian band’s album Marry Me Tonight is getting the vinyl treatment. The limited colored vinyl is long gone but there are still black vinyl copies available. I ordered a copy and am looking forward to hearing this one on LP. I think it’s my favorite of all their albums. Here is moinfo on that one.
There are some interesting releases this weekend on Record Store Day, hopefully if I can get my hands on the records I want, we will be able to get them on the show. Interesting that RSD will be on the same day as a Coachella Festival day. I wonder if that has any impact on Southern California record stores.
We hope you enjoy the show as always. Thank you for letting us do this one more time and STAY FANATIC!!!
