This week we're playing the music of Vagabon, which is the moniker of Lætitia Tamko. Tamko uploaded some songs to bandcamp not expecting much, got invited to play a famous underground music venue in New York, and realized while there that a musician didn’t have to be perfect be successful. She went on to record her debut Infinite Worlds to much critical acclaim, including a coveted "Best New Music" from Pitchfork.
Speaking of bandcamp, we're also playing new music from (Sandy) Alex G, a talented youngster who leveraged a prolific bandcamp page into a contract with the well-regarded Domino records. Rocket is the 24-year-old’s 8th full-length full-length album.
Left of the Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
