This week’s Brainwaves takes a galloping start with a long set all about horses. Music to horse around with from the Manic Street Preachers, The Radio Dept., R.E.M., the American Music Club, George Harrison, Counting Crows, America, Ha Ha Tonka, Sufjan Stevens, plus Sparklehorse and Band of Horses. Giddyup – it’s time for Brainwaves!
Are you a fan of the surprise Netflix hit “Shtisel?” Then you’ll enjoy the opening song from this week’s Brainwaves – the theme song to that show. Plus Brainwaves keeps time with some “time” songs from Owl City, Vance Joy, the Porcupine Tree, the Stills and more. Plus a couple of Laura’s on the show (Marling and Cantrell).
Never fear, the music is fine, but the theme is strange…literally. Songs with “strange” in the title. You’ll hear music from Supertramp, Lola Marsh, Modest Mouse, Boy and Bear, Red Sun Project, Porcupine Tree, American Music Club, Kevin Gilbert, Keane, Fine Yong Cannibals and much more. Plus a song about a flying squirrel? It could only be Brainwaves.
Only the best for this week’s Brainwaves. Favorite songs from the past seven years of the show: Blackfield, The Lemonheads, Spock’s Beard, Nada Surf, Teenage Fanclub, Genesis, Death Cab for Cutie and much more!
If you say yes to Yes, then you’ll enjoy the midpoint of this week’s Brainwaves – the full four-part Close to the Edge suite from the Yes album of the same name. Plus some less progrock-y tunes from Mike Cavenaugh, Modest Mouse, the National, Polyrock, Tori Amos and Israeli gypsy punk band Sum Sum.
