I broke the rules this week on my very unoriginally titled radio show on KSVR Mount Vernon. The Indie Music Show featured a few tracks that are, quite distinctly, not even close to being indie. And one of them kicked off the show. It’s the new track by David Bowie called “Where Are We Now?” Shortly thereafter, I crossed the ocean for a set from France, where I played a track by famed singer and Masculin Féminin actress Chantal Goya and another by Serge Gainsbourg.
Still, there were plenty of true indie artists and I introduced the Skagit valley (and San Juan Island thanks to simulcasting on KSJU) to the likes of Cliff Dweller, Virgin of the Birds, Traveling Circle and Locust of the Dead Earth. Perhaps my favorite of the bunch is a new Scandinavian band called Cannon Beach, which FensePost will cover properly later this week.
The above photo is of a chicken and vegetable dinner I made earlier in the week. Hit me up in the comments if you want the super easy recipe.
Tune in to KSVR Mount Vernon, KSVU Hamilton and/or KSJU Friday Harbor every Friday from 10pm to Midnight Pacific Standard Time for another show. For now, here’s the playlist. Links below go to cleared downloads for sampling.
