"480 Minutes" - New TMBG, Carmen Villain

We're not even going to bother trying to broadcast from the SomaFM studio this week -- I've been unable to do the requisite testing to make sure that next attempt is successful.  Alas, that experiment will have to wait at least one more week.

Today's show will feature new music by André Obin (Boston, MA), Boogat (Montreál, Canada), Carmen Villain (London, England), Chvrches (Glasgow, Scotland), Fol Chen (Highland Park, CA), La Big Vic (New York, NY), Mouse (London, England), Scott & Charlene's Wedding (Brooklyn, NY via Melbourne, Australia), Slowness (San Francisco, CA),  They Might Be Giants (New York, NY), Visuals (Brooklyn, NY), Water Liars (Oxford, MS), and Youth Lagoon (Boise, ID).

Get in touch during the live-hosted hours with your requests, comments, corrections, well-wishes, jokes, news, or just to say howdy (9 a.m. - 5 p.m Pacific Time):

Lyrics of the Week (LOTW):
“The world is just an empty motel room/ And I will die in Wyoming/ In a drugstore parking lot/ So high I’ll believe that I am parked outside your house.” - Water Liars, "Wyoming"
"We're the bankers/ We are wankers/ Waste your money/ Think it's funny!" - MOUSE, "Bankers"

Actual punk rock. Refreshing.
