What's In It For?

11/23 Show
Of particular note this week:

- One of the great joys of the internet is that you get access to widely prolific songwriters like Bradley Cox, who seems to have another wonderful release every week. His Atlas Sound alias covers the Five Discs' doo-wop gem: "Doctor"

- This has been around for a little while, but somehow it crossed my radar recently: Avi Buffalo "What's In It For?". Reminiscent of Band of Horses, but with a little less cliched yearning.

- The new single from Beach House surfaced this week: "Norway". It might be my favorite of their work, but I'm still not sold on this band.

- Aquarium Drunkard's most recent rare-find: Kim Fowley, who incidentally produced some of The Modern Lovers early work. Check out "International Heroes".

Here's a wealth of lo-fi goodies for the week:
- Sandwitches: "Back to the Sea"
- Magic Kids: "Superball"
- Light Pollution: "Oh, Ivory!"
- Andrew Cedermark: "Hard Livin'"
I'm starting to get sick of this sound. Maybe I just need to quit going to Gorilla vs. Bear.

Check out the full playlist.

Filled in for Monday's late night "Drinking in Bed" program last night. Here's the all-jazz playlist.
