"480 Minutes" - new Blur, Grates, Hot Panda

Dearest 480 Minutes regulars: I have a warning for you. The July editions of 480 Minutes are going to be hosted by someone even more sleep-deprived than usual.  This week we can blame Liars @ the Great American Music Hall.  Next week it's a good friend's birthday celebration.  The Thursday after that it's the Yankees @ A's.  The Thursday after that it's the next BAGeL Radio Presents... show featuring King TuffJaillThe Coathangers at Bottom of the Hill (buy tickets).  Why do these things happen on Thursdays?!

All that said, we've got a good one for you today featuring one of our favorite Australian bands of the past 5-6 years or so, The Grates. We were fortunate enough to see them a couple of times when they toured their debut album, Gravity Won't Get You High, in 2006, and they even stopped by the studio for a chat and live performance (photos here).

As usual, today's 480 Minutes program is live-hosted and encourages your feedback from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time (time zone adjuster).

Today we will debut new songs by Audiafauna (Santa Cruz, CA), Blur (Colchester, England), Citizens! (London, England), The Grates (Brisbane, Australia), Hot Panda (Vancouver, British Columbia), and The Swayback (Denver, CO).
Liars @ Great American Music Hall, SF, 7/5/12
