Brainwaves – August 20, 2019 – Wanna be a lifeguard?

For listeners where it’s sunny and hot outside, Brainwaves plays lifeguard this week with summer favorite Blotto. Rosi Golan gets us to shine. Aimee Mann says Goodbye Caroline. Lush opens our eyes to the world outside. And Mission of Burma says fight, fight, fight for the old Academy. Plus lots more in two hours of eclectic alternative indie.
