Summer Pledge Drive, vol. 1

8/3/09 Show
Of note this week:

- The Summer Pledge Drive started at 8am on this day. Thanks to all my friends and family who pledged during my show and helped me raise $620! There are some awesome thank-you gifts this year for different pledge levels, so check them out and donate at kbut.org. Or call 970-349-7444 during my show next week!

- Death is amazing. Death being the unheralded early-70s Detroit proto-punk band that is starting to make a comeback (sans one original member who passed away before they recently garnered praise and appreciation). Check out the NYTimes articles that GvB links to above.

- Sunny indie-pop that could be done by any number of bands: Portugal. The Man - People Say. Still, its done well and I'm curious to hear the rest of the album.

- Another new track from Yo La Tengo's Popular Songs, which gets released September 8th. Here to Fall is more orchestrated, spacey, & wandering than the previously posted Periodically Double or Triple.
