Brainwaves this week will get stuck on you like a magnet – with a set of magnet music (The Magnetic Fields, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and Marc Mulcahey). Plus some street music from Radiohead and the Go-Betweens. And some early 80s power pop from the Lonely Boyz, the Electrics and the Bottles.
It’s not Halloween, but Brainwaves has the ghosts this week. From the Rewinds, Simple Minds, Aimee Mann and We Ghosts. Plus non-ghost music from Translator, Lucy Schwartz, Editors, Shirts, the Jam and more.
A quartet of Regina Spektor songs starts this week’s Brainwaves. Plus music from ELO, Polyphonic Spree, the Tubes, Jason Faulkner, the Decemberists, LCD Soundsystem, the Injustice League and the Dickies.
Only 10 bands on this week’s Brainwaves. How can that be? Because this is the “long” show – where every song I play runs for at least ten minutes. It’s an opportunity to hear some really deep cuts that almost never get played on the radio. You’ll hear 10cc, Pink Floyd, Elton John, No-Man, Spock’s Beard, Arcade Fire, Chicago, the Beatles, Yes and Genesis. Ready to go long? Then tune in to this week’s Brainwaves.
It’s a new year, so let’s turn it on with a set of “turn on” music to start this week’s Brainwaves, from Bromshead Jacket, The Shins, the Tubes & Toy Matinee. Plus music from the Doves, Iconapop, MGMT, Porcupine Tree, the Delgados, Far From Frail, Jellyfish and more.
