Today we start off with a track from the latest King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard album. Then we hear a new single from Ruby Boots, who collaborated with Indianola. And we hear it in live and studio version. Margaret Dollrod is back with her new band Heartthrob Chassis. In Belgrade, we check out the new music from Å ajzerbiterlemon. Also from Belgrade, we check out music from the surf trio cleverly named Threesome. Fever Feel from Canada have a new single (it’s a band that we just introduced recently. Over in Sweden, we check out The Janitors. It’s an older song, but it’s a good band that fell through the cracks for me. But the most exciting thing by far is the return album from one of my favorite 80s bands Danny And The Doorknobs. It’s a very surprising return to a band that existed shortly under that name, and is way better known as Trotsky Icepick. Their old album Poison Summer is one of the hidden 80s jewels and their new album might be even better than that. Definitely the most pleasant surprise this year and possibly the greatest return album since Mission of Burma’s ONoffON.

Then we have Thee Lexington Arrows fronted by Kathleen Wilson over in Baltimore, doing a fantastic version of Gimme Shelter. Then we check out another refreshing cover, Cherry Red originally performed by Groundhogs, but this time from the new live Ty Segall album. Another killer cover in today’s show is Don Nix original in a fresh new version from Pharlee over in San Diego, CA. And the fourth cool cover is Will Anything Happen a Blondie classic this time performed by the Cleveland band Missed, fronted by Mickey Marie. We also check out their new single.
