Show 64

Just a heads up, next week is finals week but maltstream will still be on the airwaves! I'll be doing an interview with a VIP from the Nick and then Big Red will be taking over. The week after that on May 5th Big Red will be flying solo as I will be out of town on a mini-vaca (a.k.a. GET ME OUT OF COLUMBIA trip) to my family's house in the upstate.

With all of those updates out of the way, here's what I played:

*Ace Enders and a Million Different People, When I Hit the Ground, track "When I Hit the Ground; Take the Money and Run"
*Peter Bjorn & John, Living Things, "Nothing to Worry About"
Jessica Harp, "Boy Like Me"
Ida Maria, Fortress 'round My Heart, "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked"
Cage the Elephant, "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked"
Miss Derringer, "Black Tears"
*The Arch Cupcakes, Box of Bees, track 2 "The Human Beat Box"
*The Bird & The Bee, Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future, tracks 6&7 "Love Letter to Japan; Meteor"

At this point I let Big Red take over. When he was done I played:

Passion Pit, Chunk of Change, "Sleepyhead"
Ghostland Observatory, "Sad Sad City"
Lykke Li, "Little Bit (Loving Hand Remix)"
*The Boy Least Likely To, The Law of the Playground, track 2 "A Balloon on a Broken String"
*The Old Ceremony, Walk on Thin Air, tracks 6&7 "Stubborn Man; Same Difference"
Tao Lin, FOR HIPSTERRUNOFF, I Want to Start a Band"
Nada Surf, "I Like What You Say"
Sebastien Tellier, "L'Amour et La Violence (Boys Noize Remix)"
YACHT, "So Post All 'Em"

The Youth Of America Are Our Future

I wasn't able to do my show today because I was visiting a high school to talk about Student Media. Don't worry! DJ GitDat$ filled in until Big Red could make it from class who did just fine with out me. :)

I'll be back on the airwaves next week!

Also, I'm thinking about doing a summer show. I'm going to be in staying in town to work and take summer classes anyways, so I might as well spin some tunes!

Show 63 + Fundraiser + Interview

This week is our fundraiser week! Yay! This semester I chose to play favourites; sort of like last semester, but a little differently. In the fall we played our favourite artists and today I played some of my favourite songs that I've discovered this semester (some of them were probably last semester, but close enough) as well as had my favourite local artist, Marry a Thief, in the studio for an interview. They're be co-headlining with Sequoyah Prep School as well as playing with Last November and The Lives Of Famous Men.

With no further delay, here are some of my favourites before Big Red took over:

MGMT, Oracular Spectacular, "Kids"
Vampire Weekend, "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance (Chromeo Remix)"
Au Revoir Simone, "Sad Song (RAC Mix)"
The Ting Tings, "That's Not My Name (LA Riots Remix)"
