#skoaradio 10/31/2015 liner notes
When a new song comes out of nowhere and suddenly becomes your favorite.

When a new song comes out of nowhere and suddenly becomes your favorite.

Happy Halloween broadband buds!
Gotta say, the jams in this week's #skoaradio are so good it's SCARY! hahahaha oh boy am I bad at #relevantcontent sometimes but WE'RE HERE TO TALK MUSIC ANYWAYS SO WHATEVER. I dug up some spooktacular new tunes this week from Sinden, The 1975, Jamie Woon, MALAA, and more so it's a pretty damn good mixtape if I do say so myself. Lots of new music out this week so I hope you weren't planning on buying your family any expensive Christmas gifts because you're about to exceed your budget on music for the zillionth time.

Don't forget you can grab the Spotify playlist at the bottom of this post so you can treasure the order I painstakingly put these songs in. Or you can hit shuffle. Whatever.

Until next week!

[Watch] The Flaming Lips - "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" Feat. Nels Cline (Beatles Cover)

Yesterday we got to hear one of the collaborations Wayne Coyne and his gang The Flaming Lips had been working on with Bon Iver. Today comes footage of the band performing another cover of The Beatles. Remember the "I Am The Walrus" cover over the holidays where they're all high as kites? This is a little more tame, and by that I mean they're not wrapped in special blankets and rocking back and fourth between licking weird objects. The performance is of the Abbey Road featuring "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" and for the track they have some help from the guitar machine that is Nels Cline of Wilco. Seriously, if you're into guitars and pedals this guy is da bomb. Youtube him if not. The rendition of the track is 17 minutes long and it's bloody good!

Speaking of Wilco, did you see their insanely cool new video featuring Popeye yesterday?!

[Watch] Wilco - "Dawned On Me" Feat. Popeye (Official Video)

After seeing Wilco perform a fantastic rendition of "Dawned On Me" earlier in the week on Conan the band have now let loose the incredibly entertaining video for the track. It features none other than Popeye the frikkin' Sailor man. He loves his spinach and apparently he loves him a bit of Wilco too! Ahgahgahgahg. It's the first hand drawn animation of Popeye since way back in 1987 and the first video Wilco have released since back in '99! Watch history in the making up at the top. Brilliant.
