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.

  15. Yosemite Theme by The Go! Team on Rolling Blackouts (Memphis Industries)

    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.

    This track is destined to be accidentally mis-filed forever before the album's release in February, and it's absolutely wonderful.
