Since We Last Spoke
by Rjd2

Ramble Jon Krohn derived his stage name from the famous droid R2-D2 -- the AV Club review of this album said this album is "so wonderfully eclectic, far-ranging, and ambitious that it feels reductive and inaccurate to even call it hip-hop" -- https://tinyurl.com/1hkukjee

Colin Lodewick wrote in Pitchfork -- 'The record’s title comes from a mythical Persian horse, Shabrang Behzād, the “night-colored purebred” of the hero Siyâvash, and its project is in part a reflex to the impossibility of translation.' -- https://tinyurl.com/y2e8xc3h Find more music and listen to the latest album from this Iranian-Dutch artist at: https://www.sevdaliza.com/

Hold Me Now
by Thompson Twins
(3 plays) | (0 fans)

This 1984 album was the band's most successful, hitting #3 in the UK and #10 in the US. The band expressed discomfort at the ensuing pressure to continue this commercial success, as Alannah Currie told David Oriard of the Spokane Spokesman-Review: 'The biggest trouble that we've had basically is that the song, "Hold Me Now" was a huge hit, it was really big here, it was really big all over the world. Which is great, but it was just an accidental thing. It was just a song that we wrote. But after that then, we got everybody—managers, the record company—on our back to write "Hold Me Now, Part 2" and harassing you to try and find a formula. But we can't really. We'll never find a formula for what we did. And that upsets some of them.'

Bradford Cox on the album: "When I first came up with this concept of the 'fading frontier,' I was looking around and thinking about technology and the Internet. Remember when we were young and there was this excitement about what was going to happen next? And now, honestly, do you really want to know what happens next? I've seen enough in my lifetime; the frontier has faded. If it gets more intense, we're just going to end up not ever leaving our houses. "I don't want to be critical of how people live their lives, but let's just say this: The 'fading frontier' idea was originally a more general thing about the music business and what I'm exposed to in that world. People have diminishing expectations now, it’s kind of sad and weird. It feels like an end of an era in this very melancholy way. It is a very 'fall of the Roman Empire' kind of thing, where it feels like there's not much left to do. That's an elegiac feeling." https://bit.ly/35JhNn7

This track features Leon Bridges, as well as a sample of Alan Parsons Project’s “Eye in the Sky” and is inspired — like the album itself — by the story of astronomer Carl Sagan and his wife Ann Druyan capturing their romance on tape and sending it into space as part of the Voyager’s Golden Record. - https://bit.ly/2Uo0qTj

Green Sugar

Kikagaku Moyo are a Japanese psychedelic band from Tokyo. The band's name translates to "geometric patterns." In a statement, the band's drummer, Go Kurosawa, described the track as being inspired by a morning walk. He continues: “It’s in three parts, expressing first a blizzard, then a gentle stroll in the woods finding birds, foxes and squirrels, and finally a descent into a bottomless cave.” Read more: https://tinyurl.com/os4yq5pq DJ Morgan hosted Kikagaku Moyo live at the Triple Door as part of KEXP's VIP Club Concert Series back in 2019 -- https://youtu.be/PpnQlnra_to

Keep On Lying

Kevin Parker recorded the sound of girls laughing in order to create a feeling of being left out at a party for this song. He explained to NME magazine : "For me it goes back to that voyeuristic thing, of being like you're listening to a party but you're just not involved. It sounds like fun and you can hear people talking about something but you can't hear what it is. And there's these girls laughing, having a great time. That's what the sound of that last five minutes of that song is." Watch the video: https://youtu.be/gE5bD54-ewg

You're tuned into the Variety Mix with Evie! Evie's here from 3-6PM Pacific every Sunday. We're so glad you're here! The Beach Boys released this single as the B-side to "I Get Around" -- did you know that the chorus to this track is contained in Garbage's "Push It'? Not surprising given the song's massive influence
