"Kibbe, aren't you posting these liner notes kind of late?"

I'm late to getting this up. Sorry. Clearly from the amount of posts I've done so far today I'm trying tog get caught up. It's a nice problem to have with 3 fire shows in a week being the root of not being able to get #content out on time.

Anyway, this is going to be the last time I put together a separate playlist for the show. That's right, from now on you'll have to scramble to pull the songs from a playlist that I'm going to be changing on the regular. This is mutually beneficial because it will force me to get these out sooner rather than later so you can snatch up the goodies I share with you.

Hope you're having a great weekend fam!



Read these things and get smarter okay?

Feel free to grab this playlist, obvi.

It's chill af in NYC today. Literally. Like I'm having a hard time getting out of bed because I like my feet not being popsicles. I am writing this whilst I am still in bed. That said, the chill means that all the glorious fall albums are under way and CMJ is quickly approaching. I've also been on a steady streak of shows lately, which I will get up ASAP for you to see and be jealous of me. I'm also working to backdate all the show notes I kept saying I was upping and then rage quit because as you can see below these posts are intense as hell, you guys. OH WELL IT'S WORTH IT BECAUSE I LOVE DOING THIS!

Enjoy this weeks jams and be sure to grab the Spotify playlist below if you want to keep this mix around. As always, I'd love to hear from you so feel free to drop me a tweet and let me know what you thought of this week's show.

[Listen] Unknown Mortal Orchestra Cover Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay"

Unknown Mortal Orchestra has such a great sound. Their guitar, bass and drums belt out with a warm, fuzzy sheen, and it translates oh so well to Otis Redding's famous song "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." It's got such a mellow texture to it, coupled with a subtle sense of desperation. Damn, this cover is good. Stream the recording of UMO performing the cover live in studio for BBC Radio 6.

[Album Stream] Unknown Mortal Orchestra - 'II'

Unknown Mortal Orchestra had quickly proven with their 2011 self-titled debut that they had a kick ass sound, and a carefree, experimental attitude. Having listened to their upcoming sophomore album II front to back a few times now, I can honestly say that they've gone above and beyond what they achieved with their debut. Every song on the album entices in the oddest ways, roping you in with unique instrumental styles and charming chemistry. We're only three weeks into January, and already UMO has set the bar high. Do yourself a favor and stream II in full below before its February 5th release date. You might as well leave it on repeat.
