"480 Minutes" - The Glen Park Edition

Hello and a happy Friday to you.  As usual we have a brand-spanking new episode of 480 Minutes distilling at the moment and we can't wait to share it with you starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.  Please tune in.

Apropos of nothing: spending time in an unfamiliar neighborhood of the city one has lived in for 13+ years can be a little strange.  Not knowing many of the street names is disconcerting, and the neighborhood in question (Glen Park) is rather mountainous and the roads are all curved, steep, or some combination thereof, making learning what is where very difficult.

Now that I've gotten that out of they way, today's show will feature new songs from Charlie Chamberlain (Concord, NH), Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (New York, NY), Gem Club (Somerville, MA), Kasabian (Leicester, England), Mikal Cronin (San Francisco, CA), Milagres (Brooklyn, NY), Nurses (Portland, OR), Pack A.D. (Vancouver, Canada), Painted Palms (San Francisco, CA), Peter Wolf Crier (Minneapolis, MN), Saint Solitude (Asheville, NC), Shimmering Stars (Vancouver, Canada), Sleeper Agent (Bowling Green, KY), Veronica Falls (London, England), Warren Teagarden and The Good Grief (San Francisco, CA), Waters (Oakland, CA), and We Barbarians (Brooklyn. NY).

Lyric Of The Week: “Walking down the street and I wanna kill everyone I see/How come I don’t like anyone that I meet/And despite my antipathy I am longing to be someone better/In my heart is a violence that I cannot dispel.” - Shimmering Stars, "I'm Gonna Try"

Lyric Of The Week 2 (and 3!): " "Well I drank two bottles of wine and I threw up and felt just fine" and "You said I crawled in the sink...well, shit. I don't remember that." - The Pack A.D., "Rid Of Me"
