This morning we’ll hear a couple songs from bands I saw play this weekend at Hitone and Glitch. The prolific Ty Segall came out to wreck our psyche with his Emotional Muggers and one of the opening bands, Axis: Sova was really good so we’ll hear their song, “(I feel like) Laying Low.” At Glitch a few Memphis bands played. I really dug Couteau Latex’s live set. We’ll hear their track “De cadanse” at the end of the set.

Starting things off is some post-rock from toe. and then we’ll hear some psych-garage rock from 1970s Memphis. We’ll wrap up with an instrumental from Caspian. Enjoy! Stay noisy.

Today we open with Liima’s new one, “Amerika,” an ascension into sound and beats with vocals hitting around the two-minute mark you won’t want to miss it. China’s Chui Wan is next with a kinetic and energetic song with a little off-kilter sound. I play some new Sheer Mag – excellent song called “Can’t Stop Fighting” showcases awesome, gritty vocals by lead singer Christina Halladay. This song will make you wanna move.

Wrapping up the morning with mellow stuff from Wymond Miles, Together Pangea and an instrumental from Ducktails.

Enjoy. Stay noisy.

Then some Memphis music from Tav Falco and the Panther Burns, Detroit’s The Dirtbombs and we end it with Flyer Saucer Attack. Domino records is re-issuing three albums from Flying Saucer Attack next month so thought we would fly out into space at the end of the show with those guys.

Enjoy. Stay Noisy.

Today we started off with some lo-fi psych from California native, Morgan Delt from his 2014 self-titled “free-floating” sun soaked album. I also included the second single released from London-based FEWS, called “Zoo.” They are three Swedes and an American playing some pretty great post-punk and I am excited to hear the full length they are working on.

One of America’s contributions to the UK-based shoegazer movement, Drop Nineteens, made the playlist with their 1992 single “Winona.” The Flaming Lips will be performing The Soft Bulletin with the Colorado Symphony in May and so I played “Suddenly Everything has Changed,” and country western inspired band, Gun Outfit’s single from 2015’s Dream All Over album called “Gotta Wanna.”

Enjoy. Stay noisy.
