It was my birthday two weeks ago, but I can’t seem to stop celebrating. So here’s another Brainwaves “birthday” special” with five birthday songs to sing along to – from the Beatles, Altered Images, Kings of Leon, Ex Cops and String Theory. Does that make you happy? K’s Choice is delighted, but the Vapors want to wait for the weekend (as do the Neon Trees and the Super Furry Animals). And we end with a little “silence” from the Dickies, Thomas Dolby and the Goo Goo Dolls.
We’re in the middle of the Jewish New Year – a month of holidays with apples, honey and pomegranates. So Brainwaves presents some tunes for a new beginning – from Azure Ray, Camera Obscura, Spirit of the West and Idan Raichel. Plus music to drive home to from Pearl Harbor and the Explosions, Steven Wilson, Madness, R.E.M., Arco and Neil Halstead. And if that’s not enough, there’s a “yellow” set on this week’s show too with music from Christie, Elton John, Coldplay, Of Monsters and Men, 20/20 and the Cranberries.
It’s Brainwaves’ host Brian’s birthday this week. Let’s wish him a big mazel tov. And tune in for great music from Imagine Dragons, Arcade Fire, Feist, Tom Petty, Good Old War, Pere Ubu, Josh Pyke, Jim Yoshi, Mike Oldfield, Redeye and much more. How old is Brian? You’ll have to tune in to find out…
On the last days of August, let’s bring it home with a cover of the Phillip Phillips’ song “Home.” Plus bubblegum pop from Annemarie. Punk from Nina Hagen and the Tubes. Progressive rock from ELO and Pink Floyd. Some trance to dance to from Antiquex. And a bit of “loud radio” from Israeli rockers Tislam. It’s all on this week’s Brainwaves.
rainwaves favorite Juliana Hatfield is back with three songs to kick off this week’s show, including a cover of another Brainwaves fave, Pete Yorn. Plus music from The Monochrome Set, Kodaline, Wake Owl, Joy vision, Elbow, Grandaddy, Timmy Thomas, the Lemonheads, the Old 97s and much, much more.
