me going through all the new music this week

Oof. Really stoked for this show and because I submitted it late it was a little borked airing. You didn't even get to hear the last two segments. :( All good though! There's always next week (not to mention the podcast that will be attached to this show shortly). But yeah, trying to get back to digging out those little diamonds in the rough that I enjoy supporting. Plus HELLO NEW KENNA!! *praise hands emoji* A lot to be excited about. Expect more posts in between this show and the next with more info on the bands we're featuring.

As always feel free to let me know what you thought of this week's show either by dropping a comment here or hitting me up on Twitter.

Until next week!

Typing up all the show notes this week for once because I love you, fam. 

YES! I'M ACTUALLY DOING SHOW NOTES FOR THIS WEEK! #sorrynotsorry but like I said in this week's episode I've been dealing with a bit of blogger burnout and even though doing the show is very therapeutic for me when you see how thorough I intend to be moving forward you will understand why I put this off for as long as I could. Again, I really appreciate those of you who listen and never get the promised show notes. NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES! Just quality #content in addition to a bunch of other new things in the works right now. 

Hope you enjoyed this weeks show! Feel free to drop a comment here or hit me up on Twitter. I'd love to hear what you thought of this week's picks!

Until next week!



BONUS JUST FOR YOU FAM! I'm also making playlists on Spotify for every single show. NO SHUFFLE THO BECAUSE THAT'S CHEATING! Additionally, as the shows become available on iTunes I will update each post with a link to the show for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

Behold the visual splendor that are RATATAT's music videos! The New York electronic duo have just released the brand new music video for their song "Neckbrace" off of their latest album, LP4. The video features the typical, crazy visuals that RATATAT is known for, as well as their favourite little bird: the white budgie/parakeet. You can check out the video after the jump, enjoy!

[Listen] RATATAT - "Drugs" (Nguzunguzu Remix)
I'm hoping all of you will be familiar with the weird but wonderful RATATAT video for their track "Drugs". If you're not then shame on you! It's pretty crazy and I advise you to be sober when you watch it, no "drugs" needed for you to be sent under whilst watching it! Today we have an awesome remix of that track for you from the LA based Nguzunguzu. A nice mid morning chill out track for your listening pleasure. Check out the nice remix below and if you haven't seen the video it's over here.
