Brainwaves – May 22, 2018 – Swamp animals rock out

This week on Brainwaves, the swamp animals get to rock out. With some music about crocodiles and alligators from Neil Cicierega, Echo and the Bunnymen, R.E.M., Tilly and the Wall and The Beach Boys. Then we head to a party hosted by Regina Spektor and Matt Pond PA. (But who invite the Bay City Rollers?)
