Left of the Dial

This week I'm playing the latest album from the massive Toronto indie rock collective Broken Social Scene. Hug of Thunder has 18 musician credits on it, and I thought it would be fun to see how far I could take the show along just playing Broken Social Scene and its associated acts. It turns out filling up an hour was easy-peasy so that's I've done, no particular rhyme, reason, or ranking, just an hour of awesome tunes.

This week we're playing the new album from Waxahatchee, the moniker of Katie Crutchfield, titled Out In The Storm. It's unapologetically a breakup album, but it finds optimism in heartache. A lot of people are writing about it this week, but the best comments come from Katie Crutchfield's twin sister and longtime musical collaborator Alison Crutchfield, by way of this interview conducted by The Mothership.

I am all about that '90s nostalgia and this week on the show we get into it in a real big way from a couple of albums, one of which is a collection of demos and rarities from the Boston band Helium titled Ends With And. Lead singer Mary Timony oversaw the collection herself, scavenging basements to unearth some of these tracks.

This week on the show we're playing the latest from Roger Waters. He's a founding member of Pink Floyd and that band's foremost creative force from the period when Syd Barret left in 1968 until Waters himself left in 1985. His latest solo album is titled Is This The Life We Really Want?

Left Of The Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
