[Last Night’s Playlist] New Music Night at River Gods

Posted on June 17, 2011 at 11:27 am | 1 Comment

Felt ridiculously good to get back up in the River Gods DJ booth last night, especially with Jay from Clicky Clicky as my co-pilot. Trading hour-long slots, we hosted what will hopefully be the first of many “New Music Nights”, playing nuthin’ but recently-released (and some not-yet-released) songs from a mix of local and national bands. Best part about it (aside from forcing people to listen to my personal faves) was getting to sit at the bar and listen while Jay spun his ace selections. As much as we have in common, taste-wise, our playlists had just two artists in common (both from Boston), and they were different songs at that. Head over to Clicky Clicky for his list.

My own is essentially a “faves of the year so far” list, filled out with new material from some Boston-area bands (Boy Without God, Cuffs, Plumerai, Buffalo Tom, WALLcreeper, Pretty & Nice, The Hush Now, The Diamond Mines), a few very-new live treats (Ted Leo, Allo Darlin’, Morrissey), and some vinyl-only tracks from April’s Record Store Day (New Pornographers, Nada Surf, Wild Flag). Most of the descriptions below include links to where you can buy the releases these songs come from, or go stream/download the songs themselves. Here you go…
