I’m back to making a relatively normal show once again. It was kind of hard finding the thread from two weeks ago to figure out how best to keep the churn of newness going but it all worked out into a pretty fun hour.
The Line-Up for 20 September 2019
Olli Hirvonen – Tactile
I didn’t fully anticipate how fun this song would be. It’s almost too much energy for the 1 spot, but here it sits.
Flying Lotus – All In
GoGo Penguin – Ocean In A Drop
This song just dropped so I’m doing my due diligence to play it on the show this week.
Taylor McFerrin – As You Are (feat. Elena Pinderhughes)
Love’s Last Chance also just dropped and I’m doing that same diligence here, as well.

Petros Klampanis – Irrationality
This song made it into the hour just under the wire, but I’m rather glad it did make it here.
Makaya – Late
Chase Baird -Wait and See
I’m still very much digging A Life Between.

Javier Santiago – Fearless
I’ve been listening to B-Sides: The Phoenix Sessions a bunch this last week and am really looking forward to saying more about this when the album drops next month.
Jonny Greenwood – Proven Lands
Portico Quartet – Signals in the Dust
I’m definitely going to be keeping Memory Streams in rotation for a little while.

Steve Lehman Trio + Craig Taborn – Echoes/The Impaler
My love for The People I Love shows little signs of waning.

Yep, I’m still getting into Rubberband.
