RADIO BROADCAST #439
Fanatic! This. Is. It. Our last show for August. I don't know if you ordered your Oh Sees record, Orc, a few days ago when they went up on the Castle Face site, but I did and rocked it yesterday. The band has done it again. Another great one. We start our show off with a new track from it. We will be getting into this record as the weeks go on.
The below sets form our wave of farewell to summer. Next week, when we are live with Shepard Fairey, we will start moving into post-summer fare. I know it's not autumn yet for a while, but August is it for me.
A great gathering of songs we have here for you. I was listening down to all of them yesterday and it sounds great. The Gary Wilson track is a standout. The album is really cool. You can find that at Feeding Tube Records. There is always something happening there. They stay busy.
We have some new tunes from the brick of records I got from Richie at Strangeworld. Next week, we will be able to start playing tracks from the new Rice Is Nice mixtape. Some great tunes on that one.
Hope you dig the show. Remember next Sunday, we are back with you live with our old pal and sonic ally, Shepard Fairey!
