Playlist 5/16/2017

I had an awesome time this week with intern Pam (a.k.a. DJ Captain Mofo) and Doug Dimmadome (a.k.a. DJ Blubber Nuggets)! Can’t wait to see what Pam can do with her own show. Song of the week goes to Chon with “Sleepy Tea.” Their new album Homey comes out June 16th, and they headline a massive tour with Tera Melos, Covet, and Little Tybee starting June 2nd at The Fonda in LA. Also, check out this playlist I put together every week for the KUCI Top 30 most played songs. See you all next time!

Late again, but I’ll combine these two shows (more like 1.125 shows) to make it a bit easier. Song of the week goes to A Lot Like Birds with “Trace The Lines” off their new album DIVISI. One of the softer yet most powerful songs off of this killer album. We had some other great new music from Vasudeva, Tigers Jaw, Scale The Summit, and many more. And how about that new Hot Rod Circuit? First release in six years! I’ll be on for a full two hours next week, so get ready for another barrage of new music. See you then!

A little late on this, but I promised to keep up with posting so here it is! Tons of new music this week, but I think Tigers Jaw takes the cake for song of the week with “Guardian.” Although I’d give Naive Thieves a close second place.  Keep an eye out for an update on Spring and early Summer concerts, and as always, check out my Twitter. I have a sub for 4/25, so I’ll see you all in a few weeks!

I’m back! My new quarter resolution is to get back into the habit of posting here every week, so you can now check back here for playlists. As always, I have a Spotify playlist to the left with every song ever played (nice for a mindless shuffle) and a Twitter that you can follow for TCS updates, concerts, new music, etc. I’ll start songs of the week next week, since I only had about 15 minutes this time around. See you next Tuesday!

What a week for music! Before I announce the song of the week, I’d like to give an honorable mention to Big Scary with their new album, Animal. It’s an extremely creative and diverse project. Now for the song of the week: “Andrew’s Song” by I The Mighty. Their new EP, Oil in Water, is by far the best “reimagined” EP I’ve ever seen a band do. They explore new genres such as jazz, electronic, and bluegrass, which differs greatly from their typical post-hardcore style. Check them out on tour this October. See you all in a week!
