It’s a brand new Brainwaves with songs from bands that begin with the letter “H.” And this week’s show leans heavily on the indie pop – not a progressive rocker in the episode’s 34 songs. You’ll hear music from Heavy Sleeper, the Humbugs, the Hangabouts, Ha Ha Tonka, Heaven 17, the Head and the Heart, the Human League, Hozier, Harper Simon, Hole and much more. Hey hey, my my, don’t you go anywhere!
Starting this week’s show with a look back at The Both, the 2014 collaboration between Ted Leo and Aimee Mann. Then it’s on to a golden set, with songs from 10,000 Maniacs, Ed Sheeran, Mates of State, Snow Patrol, the Stranglers, Looking Glass and of course 70s glam rockers Golden Earring.
Brainwaves takes a trip around the continents of our small planet. With songs from Africa, Europe, Australia, America, Antartica and…Atlantis. Where will we find a place for us? Talking Heads, Mikky Ekko, Erez Singer and Apartment have some answers. It’s all on this week’s international episode.
I first met Eliezer Botzer when he was a freckled-faced 3-year-old. That was 34 years ago. Today, he’s a rising rock star living in Tel Aviv. This week I play my favorite Botzer song on Brainwaves. Plus great music from Bright Eyes, Kishi Bashi, The Jim Yoshi Pile Up, Nick Drake, the Dream Academy, Iggy Pop, Laurie Anderson, Azure Ray and much more.
Gee whiz, it’s the “G” show – the latest episode of Brainwaves A to Z where every artist on this week’s show starts with the letter G. Starting with a punk rock flashback to Gang of Four. Plus so much more: Guards, Guster, Gomez, Garbage, Grandaddy, Grouplove, Good Old War and the Garys – Valentine, Numan and Glitter (that’s two Gs!). Oh, the first ever Brainwaves airing of a Grateful Dead song (but as a cover by Mumford and Sons).
