Spread Your Love! Show tracks for Sat. May 11/13

Argh! I sees spots! Thousands of spots! BRMC sure do love strobe lights. Like a million little flash bulbs going off over and over. Not as much smoke as I thought there would be though. Great show last night at St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit. They opened with a cover of The Call's Let The Day Begin. Touched on all the hits. Always a fave to see live.

Tonight we featured Primal Scream's album of the year contender in the LP Session. Also tonight new music from Noah & The Whale, Editors, Little Boots, Pigeon Detectives and another Damon Albarn production. Finally made time to get Parlour Flames on. One of my new faves, with my fave on repeat being the new Childhood single Solemn Skies. The Family Bizarre, Little Boots and East India Youth had my rump shaking in the studio tonight! So much great music and so little time to feature it all for you weekly. If you want to hear anything, want an album featured, etc message me or comment and I will try my best to get it on for you.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the amazing mother's out there! Without you we are all nothing. Spread your love mom's, this crazy world needs you more than ever.
