"480 Minutes" - Gimme Indie Rock!

Today will be another atypical edition of 480 Minutes -- sure, we'll unveil new music plus focus on recent playlist additions and sprinkle in some all-time great songs, but there will also be a focus on two bands that have both been around for 20+ years: Yo La Tengo and The Wedding Present. Why? I saw YLT at the Fillmore last night, and they reminded me how unbelievably awesome the are and have been for, oh, about 20 years now. There will be similar love for The Wedding Present, who have been similarly awesome for a similar length of time, and my beloved Weddoes will be here in San Francisco tomorrow (Saturday, April 24th, 2010) performing my favorite album of theirs, Bizarro, at The Independent.

Today's show will include new music by Avi Buffalo (Long Beach, CA), The Consulate General (Gothenburg, Sweden via SF), Frog Eyes (Vancouver, Canada), Kate Nash (London, England), Lemonade (Brooklyn, NY via SF), The Like (Los Angeles, CA), Pilot Cloud (Philadelphia, PA), The Radio Dept. (Lund, Sweden), The School (Cardiff, England), Setting Sun (Catskill Mountains, NY), and System And Station (Portland, OR).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
