"480 Minutes" - New Generationals, Kills, Strokes

The April Fool's 2011 edition of 480 Minutes was going to be chock full of American Idol-launched "talent," but then I realized how much good music needed to get debuted this week and came to my senses. At that very moment I heard a collective, "Phew!" from the internets, and my reply was, "I know!"

One of those new releases is from a band called Generationals, who were one of my top highlights at SXSW 2011. I am looking forward to playing their stuff for you and getting your feedback.

Next week there are two events in San Francisco you should attend: on Wednesday 4/6 it's the April Rumble at Milk Bar featuring live sets by Winter's Fall, Vanaprasta, and Space Ghost. As always I will be playing the music between the bands, so RSVP here for free admission. On Thursday 4/7 it's the 11th anniversary of our friends and the inspiration for our station, SomaFM. They are celebrating at the Independent with sets by Tycho, Inu, and SomaFM DJs. Buy tickets here.

Today we will again be debuting TONS of new playlist additions including music from Admiral Fallow (Glasgow, Scotland), All Tiny Creatures (Madison, WI), Beach Fossils (Brooklyn, NY), Cashes Rivers (Des Moines, IA), Dangerous Ponies (Philadelphia, PA), Death Cab For Cutie (Bellingham, WA), Deep Dark Robot (Los Angeles, CA), The Deer Tracks (Gvle, Sweden), Dum Dum Girls (Los Angeles, CA), Generationals (New Orleans, LA), Joan As Policewoman (New York, NY), Les Jupes (Winnepeg, Canada), Mathew Sawyer and The Ghosts (Hammersmith, England), The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (New York, NY), The Strokes (New York, NY), Those Darlins (Murfreesboro, TN), UNKLE (London, England), and The Wombats (Liverpool, England).

As always, you are encouraged to
