"480 Minutes" - We're Ba-ack!

Note [10:10 a.m. Pacific Time]: we are experiencing technical difficulties. If you hear crackling where the host's voice is supposed to be, the problem is on our end.  We are working on it!  Apologies for the inconvenience. [/Note]

Hello and welcome 480 Minutes, the weekly marathon live hosted radio show during which you get to preview the songs we'll be adding to our playlist next week.

Since this the Friday after a week off, we have a ridiculous amount of new music to get to today, when we will debut new music by Comet Gain (London, England),  The Dead Exs (New York, NY), Delta Spirit (Long Beach, CA),  Eux Autres (San Francisco, CA), Fun. (New York, NY), Future Of The Left (Cardiff, Wales),  Gabriel & The Hounds (Brooklyn, NY), Geographer (San Francisco, CA), Grimes (Montreal, Canada), Hunx (Oakland, CA), Islands (Canada), The Magnetic Fields (Boston, MA), Memoryhouse (Toronto, Canada), Morning Parade (Harlow, England) Motel Beds (Dayton, OH), Now, Now (Minneapolis, MN), The Phantom Family Halo (Brooklyn, NY), Santigold (Philadelphia, PA), Sleigh Bells (Brooklyn, NY), Soft Swells (LA/NYC), Team Me (Oslo, Norway), Tops (Montreal, Canada), Xray Eyeballs (Brooklyn, NY), Yellow Ostrich (Brooklyn, NY), and Young Statues (Philadelphia, PA).

480 Minutes runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time.  Please get in touch during those hours with your requests, comments, and least favorite cover version of all time.  We discovered a new low this week, a pain and horror-inducing version of a Hüsker Dü classic.  Warning: listen to it at your own risk -- this cover made my sweet, kind, pacifist friend Tom From Toledo want to punch the band.

As you may know, last week I attended the Digital Media Forum East conference in New York, which is why the show was a rerun.  The conference was stimulating, interesting, and lots of fun. Highly recommended for anyone involved in the intersection of music, technology, and social media.

For those of you who suffered through that horrible cover version, I apologize.   Here's the original to, you know, cleanse the palette:

Oh, and FUCK YOU, WMG, you detestable disappearing dune of dinosaur dung, you.
