This was a fun show stitching together a bunch of songs via Youtube that I had been feeding off all morning. There’s a lot of Ty Segall, Courtney Barnett, and IDLES, so that is fair warning. I re-listened the morning after the show, something I rarely do, and it reminded me why I love ds106radio so much.

    First time I ever heard Courtney Barnett was a Bob Boilen, Tiny Desk concert from NPR. Courtney was tired, had just come from an airport, but soldiered on. And was brilliant, but doubly so, ‘cuz I had never heart Avant Gardner before and couldn’t believe the melody, much LESS those rhyming lyrics that go places you would never expect. A true marvel and a genius that I bumped into on the Interwebz.

      Like must things with music, I heard this for the first time on ds106radio, and I think the tune was “Pedestrian at Best.” Like Avant Gardner, the way she raps to indie chords is so amazing, her unique sound grabs you right away.

    Love her duets (and entire album) with Kurt Vile …

    • Reverend says:

      I am hooked on her voice for sure, and Fear is Like a Forest gets me every time, it is definitely a duet for the ages. I’ll give the whole album a listen, but how odd to read AllMusic’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine’s review in that Wikipedia article:

      As they’re both charismatic singers with a way with an elliptical melody, it’s pleasant enough, but by the time its 45 minutes wrap up, Lotta Sea Lice feels like a party where the hosts are having a much better time than their guests.

      Is there any other way for hosts to play? Fucking critics
