Dear KZSC lovers,
It’s time we sit down and cuddle up to something that I personally cannot get my ears to move away from. The band is Air Waves, out now on Catbird Records. This is what happens when you get a copy: your hand is filled with this beautiful, screen printed, yellow artwork on what looks like a 45rpm sleeve.
We’ve got some fancy new music at our station again!

Rock music wins:
Oh no! More new music! It looks like the folk-rock revival is getting the best of us here at KZSC, and I couldn’t be happier.
Because lazy afternoon folk-rock banjo goodness will always get the best of you.
2 TALBOT TAGORA – “Lessons In The Woods Or A City”
Remember how much we loved Abe Vigoda? Yep, this band goes there again. Noise-rock influenced fast almost chaotic glory.
3 EDWARD SHARPE AND THE MAGNETIC ZEROS – “Up From Below”
That whole “folk-rock revival” thing is going to start sounding annoying really quick, but the thing is that great things are happening in this realm. Edward Sharpe is a perfect example. There are so many hits on this album it’s ridiculous. Just play the first two songs and try not to get 100% sucked in. From the yellow-tinged photos on the cover right through the whole album, the influence of the 1960s has never been more welcome.
4 KLEERUP – “Kleerup”
Right, I know, you’re shocked because I’m condoning an RPM album. Anyways, Kleerup is what being electronic is all about. And by that I mean dancing is irresistible with this group. I couldn’t help it.
5 BRIAN GLAZE AND THE NIGHT SHIFT - “Green Living”
Oh man, the 1980s! Glamour! Dancing! Not being obnoxious and creating music that throws back this hard to that era is an incredible, incredible feet. Synth rock nu-wave that is so incredibly spot on and so well crafted I couldn’t not give it a nod.
TOP 30 SPINS
DISCOVERY – LP
Its easy to be jealous person. What can I say? I’m only human. So, it really warms the cockles of my heart to find that real gem, that twinkle and shine through the brown hues of packing envelopes and scotch tape in my mailbox. This week, that CD was a debut LP (called ‘LP’) from the collab project named Discovery by its members, Rostam Batmanglij and Wes Miles from Vampire Weekend and Ra Ra Riot, respectively.
