LISTEN: The Big Beat 'cast 49

There are times when I'll choose to hold off posting a show to the blog due to (1) time commitments and (2) the belief that anything posted after mid-day on Thursday is generally lost to the abyss. With Easter weekend fast approaching, I just thought I'd hold off posting the most recent Beat'cast until today but definitely wanted to get it up before the new one (nudge) airs tomorrow.

So you're back in the office, draggin' ass and you want some new music, right? I gotcha. I'm playing two dozen new tunes on this show, 27 in all, including first appearances by DIRTY PROJECTORS, DEAR JOSEPH, THE NEIGHBOURHOOD, JAI PAUL, TRIPWIRES, OFF!, SCREAMING FEMALES, POST WAR YEARS, SUPREME CUTS, and PS I LOVE YOU. I'll also play new ones from EDWARD SHARPE and the MAGNETIC ZEROS and A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS.

The Big Beat  premieres on DIY Radio (London) every Tuesday on 8p GMT, 3p Eastern and Noon Pacific, and in addition to listening to it archived on the blog here, you can hear it Fridays on Moheak Radio (Los Angeles) at 7a Pacific, 10a Eastern and 3p GMT.

And make a note to catch me on KUT 90.5 (Austin) Tuesday and Wednesday at 11p CT (Midnight Eastern, 5a GMT)* and Amazing Radio (Gateshead, England) Thursdays at 10p GMT, 6p Eastern.

*This week, hear me from 8-11p Central (9p-Midnight Eastern)
