My 20th show! Wow! How time flies. Tons of great music on this show, and tons of great music to come. Be sure to tune in for the upcoming Fun Drive Halloween show in two weeks. I’ll have some guests on, play all vinyl, and make it super spooky! Enjoy the show below:
[Fresh]Stella Donnelly – Thrush Metal E.P.
I can not stop recommending this E.P. I am in love with Stella Donnelly’s sound and it’s great to get into her sound before she makes it big. Check it out for sure, her song Boys Will Be Boys is such a powerful song, worthy of a message that is needed for these times. Thursh Metal is out now.
[Look Out For]Tennis – We Can Die Happy E.P.
Much like Belle and Sebastian, Tennis always puts out solid albums with a great sound. Their last E.P. Small Sounds was fantastic! I can’t wait for this one. Not sure if these are all new songs, or B-sides off Yours Conditionally, but if it is, we can expect really deep lyrics that challenge gender norms and the ideas of love. We Can Die Happy is out Nov 10th.
[Worth a Re-Spin]Hey Anna – Run Koko
Hey Anna’s debut album. Released in 2015, it was a solid indie pop album. 2015 was a host of tons of great albums from Father John Misty, to Grimes, Courtney Barnett, to Sufjan Stevens, so this album might have got lost in the shuffle for you. But looking back, it is a such a fun album worth another listen. Run Koko is out now.
[Classic]Pedro the Lion – Achilles Heel
I am so excited for their return! Pedro the Lion was a pretty decent part of my high school life. So grabbing some tickets to see them in Seattle seemed like a no-brainer! David Bazan and company are a welcome treat for my December.
Setlist – 10/17:
