Brainwaves – December 12, 2023 – Darkness into light
Written by Brian Blum on 10/12/2023
When Brainwaves originally aired this episode, it was all about going from darkness to light to mark the Jewish holiday of Hanukah, which is being celebrated for eight days over the course of this week. However, these days, we need a little light to shine from the darkness, regardless of the holiday.
The episode has two parts – the first hour is all “dark” songs. The second hour marks the transition to “light” music.
On the dark side: Sonw Patrol, Yo La Tenga, Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello, Teenage Fanclub and Lana Del Rey.
On the light side: The Passion Pit, the Smiths, Bob Mould, Spoon and Of Monsters and Men.
And that’s just a taste. Tune in for the full meal. We guarantee it will be enlightening!
