Andy has two shows in May’s schedule. In his 2-hour regular show, he proudly presents the 'Lord Numb Love-In' in his 2-hour May show, with three sessions for the price of two (sort of) including two exclusively-recorded tunes each from Lord Numb, his close associate Spidersleg, and The Reject Club - the name under which both Spidersleg and Lord Numb work together. There's loads of other great music including Harry's Gym, Niki & the Dove, Laura Cantrell, Pete Miles, Trembling Blue Stars, PJ Harvey, Alpines, Team Ghost, Samuraj Cities and Morrissey, plus a fine selection of new and unsigned bands. A classic rave anthem appears as Andy's Old Chestnut; Teresa introduces a Tasty Tip; Scott's supplies a Funky Five Minutes; and there's another exciting competition to win a bumper bundle of CDs!
His second show in May is Andy’s Archives, featuring music released ten or more years ago, selected at random from his comprehensive record collection. …

We've constructed a list of what we thought were the top thirty 7" records of 2010. Since we mainly covered music in 7" format this year (covering over 100 unique singles!), this should definitely be interesting. Check out Part 1 of the countdown right now!!! Part 2 comes tomorrow!
JEFF the Brotherhood
Chain and the Gang
The Boom Bang
3. Jan. 2010, 18:45 von tastyanagramHappy New Year, everyone. I'm taking a listen to this list by Michael Marotta of top 10 Boston bands to look out for in 2010. So far, I'm really digging all of them.
1. Mystery Roar
2. Magic Magic
4. You can be a Wesley
5. Endless Wave
6. Bad Rabbits
8. Girlfriends on Myspace (Girlfriends is cool too, but not the same band)
9. Mellow Bravo
Happy listening! Any local bands to share?

If you've ever discussed music with me for longer than 10 minutes, this won't come as a surprise. I think Hospice is amazingly fantastic. I'd go so far as to say it's my favorite album of the decade.
If you're listening to it casually, it sounds soft, slow, and possibly even boring. In fact, that is how all my friends have described it: boring. But when you give it your full attention and really pay attention to the music and the lyrics, it's heartbreakingly beautiful. It's subtlety yet meticulously constructed and not a note feels out of place. This is the only album I've heard that can have lines like "Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up" and still make it sound like a lullaby.
The whole album tells the story of a man waiting by his wife's side as she dies of bone cancer. She's angry and only feels bitter towards him, and you don't know why at first. But as the story progresses, you are given flashbacks and insight into these two characters' lives. …
