This week’s show had a lot of new music. I’ve just gotten back from Berlin, so I had a head full of what I was hearing there, especially a lot of folktronica and older gems.
Sia’s new single, “Clap Your Hands” is just excellent. Like “You’ve Changed,” the other single from the upcoming album, “We Are Born,” (which I named the best single of 2009), it’s pretty clear that Sia is in full-blown party pop mode, and I love her for that. Check out the single here:
I had a mini-set related to spring, which included some wonderful stuff like Nina Simone’s “It Might As Well Be Spring,” and XTC’s wonderful “Season Cycle:”
Other notable new singles this week include Husky Rescue’s “The Sound of Love,” as remixed by The Twelves. Excellent dirty disco:
The craziest thing I heard this week, had to have been Alex Kenji’s “Tropical Chicks,” which sounds to me like what would happen if Kraftwerk went on vacation in Cuba. Check it out here:
As usual, the entire setlist is here as a Google spreadsheet.
