Divine Intervention Strikes - May 8

Man, look at all the KEYS on that thing -- that sure is one big organ, and it's sure to be featured during Vinyl Vespers on Divine Intervention, airing this evening from 7 to 9p on KDRT. Extending far beyond big organs, there will be much new music -- maybe even more than last week, if that's humanly possible. We'll probably start with rock/pop but who knows where we'll end... Tune in and groove.

Album of the Week - Dengue Fever "Escape from Dragon House" - TH May 4

We can't say it better than Pitchfork did back in 2005, when Dragon House hit the shelves: "L.A.-based band fold Ethiopian touches into a Cambodian style of pop heavily influenced by classic American surf rock and Nuggets-era garage-psych." That about sums it up. Tune in, 5-6p PT, for Dengue Fever on AotW! @JessGoddesse hosts.
