This week's show features the excellent new record Under the Spell of Joy, from LA's Death Valley Girls. A remarkably tight set of psych, rock, stompy crunch riffs, saxophone of Roxy Music-evoking class… all packaged together with remarkable aplomb.
Otherwise, I took last week off so there's a goodie bag of other new tunes to play, and there's a momentary concern as the local emergency services gathered outside my window, but not, it turned out, to shut down the show.

This wasn't actually The Go! Team track I intended to play — I was aiming for one of the more effusively choral, lyrical numbers to git with the Death Valley Girls. But, no matter.
