The Big Beat 'cast 29

Be listening to DIY Radio today at 4pm Eastern, 3p Central & 2100 BST for a taut, lean 60 minute Big Beat'cast. This week, I'll play new tracks from a few acts who've been in my heavy rotation lately: ELEPHANT, LANTERNS ON THE LAKE, and DAUGHTER. Also, more from the DUM DUM GIRLS and WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS records, in addition to new tracks from BOS ANGELES, ESBEN AND THE WITCH and JAMES BLAKE.

The Beat'cast will return on November 1st with a new two-hour show. Next week, I'll post something that may be of interest to anyone who enjoyed listening to me on WOXY. It's something I ran across - right around two hours long - that oughta bridge the gap until then.

If you can't wait, just press play and go.
