It’s Brainwaves host Brian Blum’s birthday this week and Brian’s daughter requests a song. So here’s some music that show there’s no generation gap in the Blum household. Music from Imagine Dragons, Good Old War, Dawes, Pere Ubu, Superchunk, Shane Searles, Badfinger, Gates of Berlin, Vertical Horizon, A.C. Newman and much more. Mazel tov!
This week’s Brainwaves highlights changes – not in the show (still playing the best eclectic alternative indie) but with a double set of change music from the likes of David Bowie, the Stills, Old Man River, the New Pornographers, Natalie Merchant, Daft Punk, the Stranglers, Keane, Josh Ritter, Vance Joy and more. Tune in and don’t change that dial!
This week’s Brainwaves features several shiny songs for your listening enjoyment: from Harper Simon, Echo and the Bunnymen, Donovan and Jonathan Edwards. We also make peace with Juliana Hatfield, David Broza, Albert Hammond and the Bats. Plus forgotten Boston 80s faves 21645.
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.
This week, Brainwaves goes to the bees. It’s not the “B” episode of Brainwaves A to Z but we kick off with a quartet of buzzing music from Voice of the Beehive, Neil Halstead, the Bee Gees and the Residents. Plus music from Dawes, the Stranglers, Lovedrug, Peter Gabriel, Calexico, The Slants, Stereolab and much more.
