I had to preorder the new Quarterbacks record yesterday. Well I guess I didn’t HAVE to preorder it. But I am feeling the quirky alterna-jangle of the New Paltz, New York’s Quarterbacks.

I fired up the preview on NPR the other day…and the 22-minutes sailed by. Reminds me of college radio music. And that tends to remind me of being young. And I like that feeling.

S/t is out on February 10th.

NPR brought up some similarities to Waxahatchee. Coral is less a fan of Waxahatchee. Says she reminds her of Lilith Fair music? Sure. I dig it…and new music from Waxahatchee is in the pipe! Neat.

Ivy Tripp is out on April 7th.

And then I traveled down the rabbit hole at Merge…discovered some new Mikal Cronin in the pipe. MCIII May 5th

Happy Tuesday!  Hitting a Canucks game tonight. Fingers crossed for a good show from the boys in blue and green.

Oh, can I share a clip from my radio show? This is from Friday when I interviewed a guy on a downtown street corner yelling, “EBOLA is A PLAGUE FROM GOD!”

If radio clips are fucking with your vibe on HypeMachine, let me know in the comments….otherwise, I obviously like sharing my work.

Go with yourself.

I love reading all the year end lists and going back to listen to stuff that skipped over me here at the radio factory.

I wanna start with Waxahatchee.  Pitchfork “Best New Music’d” Katie Crutchfield’s second record Cerulean Salt.  First off, I like the word cerulean.

Rolling Stone had her record at 36.
Spin at 20.
And Paste put her song “Swan Dive” at 43.

I love the song “Coast to Coast.”

So pretty.

Next up Caitlin Rose.


Spin described her style as “Here we have She and Him, if She killed Him: Millennial garage rock doesn’t get sweeter, sourer, or more delicately ferocious than this shattered-glass menagerie of bar-brawl-gospel torch songs and gleeful emotional arson.”

Uhhh that sounds awesome.

Spin said this song should be on the TV Show Nashville.

Also so pretty.  I’ll play this for Coral and see if she likes.

Go with yourself.
