underneath the radar: week fourteen

Hey guys - it's been a really big and busy week in the studios. There was a superindulgent Songs from the Front Row featuring Queen, The Buzzcocks and Ben Harper. There was also a minor Decemberists segment, both celebration of their brand new LP, Picaresque and in memory of their gear trailer which was nicked during their tour of SE Portland last week. If you find it, please return it. Otherwise there was a minor feature on awesome fiery female anti-heroines, Nellie McKay and Regina Spektor. Respek, girls, respek.

they'll build a statue of us, then later say it's all our fault
regina spektor: glug

Ah, LA's electro trio Moving Units are in town (+ expect a Radar interview soon, yeah!), be sure to catch them:
  • Saturday 26th March @ Ding Dong
  • Sunday 27th March @ The Stage on Smith St

    thanks for the lovely mention El, but uh, I'm actually interviewing 78 Saab! Not 67 Special...ah they both have numbers in the them and the words both start with 's'. Not to worry, thanks for the mention and I'm looking forward to playing your special song on Monday. See you at Moving Units!
