Fresh? You want fresh? Today’s What’s This Called? from noon to 1 PM Pacific Standard Time on KPSU.org has new releases so fresh they haven’t been tasted yet!
World Premiere of the new SadoDamascus Records Winter Copulation 2016 comp! Plus new released from the old mailbox sent by Dubuque’s Personal Archives label from Belgium’s Mahler Haze and God-know’s-where’s Dead Man’s Lifestyle. Throw in the sounds of some black holes trying to suck each other up, and you have a perspective on the universe you couldn’t have had the day before yesterday!
Classic? You want classic? It’s Peter Gabriel’s 66th birthday, and the day before Valentine’s wherein Sun Ra, David Bowie, and Unwound have the best answers or at least the best rephrasing of the question.
