The new album by Thee Oh Sees has been charting very well at KZSC since it arrived in the mail. Thee Oh Sees have always gotten a lot of love from KZSC djs, and this album is an amazing addition to their already outstanding body of work. Here’s a super cool song off of their album entitled King’s Nose:

Rock Charts – Last Week of May

It may have been a three day weekend but the charts never stop! This week we played Thee Oh Sees endlessly and Perfect Pussy had a huge bump in air-play. I think it’s cause our DJ’s are all really excited for their show in Santa Cruz this week.

Top 10:

Top 5 Adds:

2. ED SCHRADER’S MUSIC BEAT – Party Jail
3. YANN TIERSEN – Infinity
4. BABES – Babes [EP]
5. POPSTRANGERS – Fortuna

 

 

 

 

Gold-Bears new album is some really fun, catchy pop rock off of Slumberland records. The record, entitled Dalliance, is a very logical addition to the Slumberland line up. It’s got great fuzzy, punky guitars with sweet pop-y vocals thrown on top. It goes well as a kind of lighter cousin of the some of the other bands on the Slumberland roster, like Terry Malts or Joanna Gruesome. The album comes out June 3rd, but you’ll likely hear it over the KZSC airwaves throughout this week. I really dig this record. It’s definitely worth checking out!

Here’s a song off of it called For You:

CMJ Top 30

This week’s charts at KZSC are a classic case of “tell me something I don’t know.” What we do know is that Thee Oh Sees are the most badass band on the planet. San Francisco’s prolific garage crew has delivered an album that four out of five dj’s suggest for daily listening. Floating Coffin kills, nuff said. Check out these psychotic songsters on Great 88 shows “Indie Babies”, “Do or D.I.Y” or other indie programs. You might even hear someone spin it on the ultra rare, ultra clear vinyl, with red blood splatter.

Here’s the Top 30 for KZSC for this week.
