"480 Minutes" - Dilution Of Trust


And...we're back! Following an ultimately necessary week off (the meeting which caused the rerun was canceled at the last minute) we're back with a stack of new submissions so high it nearly blocks out the sun.  Many of them are really good (Spoon, Las Rosas, The Magnetic Fields) and I look forward to sharing them with you.  Others, well...it probably wasn't for a lack of effort, but some of these made it tough to give even that basic benefit of the doubt.  There were a couple of things this week that were so bad that I thought, "Damn, who sent me this piece of shit?!"  For the foreseeable future everything else that particular radio promo company sends me (yes,  both incomprehensibly bad releases came from the same once-reliable source) will get both an initial sideways glance and sniff.  Don't you hate it when trust becomes diluted?

Today the award-winning 480 Minutes show today will contain new songs by The Besnard Lakes (Montreal, Canada, @besnardlakes), Coco Hames (Nashville, TN, @cococommotion), Damaged Bug (SF/LA), Guided By Voices (Dayton, OH, @GBVtweets), Las Rosas (Brooklyn, NY, @lasrosasbrooklyn), The Magnetic Fields (New York, NY, @TheMagFields), No Vacation (San Francisco, CA, @novacationband), Real Estate (Ridgewood, New Jersey, @realestateband), The Shins (Portland, OR, @TheShins), Sneaks (Washington D.C., @eva_on_earth), and Spoon (Austin, TX, @spoontheband).
Lyric of the Week:

I wish I had something better to do/But even my own clothes remind me of you.

-The Magnetic Fields, '05 Never Again
The 480 Minutes program begins at 9 a.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is live-hosted until 5 p.m.

For those who can't tune in during the live hosted hours the show is rebroadcast on Friday evenings beginning at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and Sundays at 1 a.m. ET.

Fuzzy Road #144 - P.S. Fuzz

©  stevechapmanphoto.com
Oh how necessary the Fuzz has become -- it's difficult to stay sane when your government tells you that taking away meals from elderly shut-ins, disabled people, school kids, and veterans is "one of the most compassionate things we can do."  Forgetting about what a small piece of the overall budget it is, it's simply heartless and callous and...it's as if words have no meaning to this administration.  Worse still are those getting shafted by these nefarious characters who still support them, and the congressional representatives who keep giving them cover.  Fortunately The Fuzzy Road radio show will touch on none of this nastiness and instead will stick to warping your mind with psych, garage, and an un-hosted closing set of shoegaze that will make you feel all fuzzy in the brain.

BAGeL Radio's Tuesday psych and garage rock specialty show runs from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time, and today will feature songs by Made Violent, The Syn, The Idle Race, Tame Impala, Les Lutins (pictured), Temples, and more.
