Exposure: 9/30 – 10/3

October. And the trees are stripped bare. Of all they wear.

“Including their sunglasses and beanies.”

So here we are in October, getting closer to the holidays, getting closer to the WBRU Dunkin’ Donuts 44th Birthday Bash. Exciting times! Let’s get into it!

 

Mellow Monday – 9/30

Flagship – Break the Sky

The Dodos – Substance

Emiliana Torrini – Speed of Dark

Sigur Ros – Isjaki

Mount Kimbie – You Took Your Time

Au Revoir Simone – More Than

Twice Young – Slow Down

The Joy Formidable – Silent Treatment

Tired Pony – All Things All at Once

Half Moon Run – Full Circle

Arctic Monkeys – No. 1 Party Anthem

 

Time Travel Tuesday – 10/1

Two amazing bands selected for two very different reasons. Grouplove’s 2nd LP, Spreading Rumours, which for some unknown reason is spelled the British way, dropped mid-September. On top of that, they’re playing Night Two of the WBRU Dunkin’ Donuts 44th Birthday Bash. The Killers, hopefully NOT as a sign that they’re finished, are releasing their first greatest hits album, Direct Hits, next month. Pretty incredible that after only 4 albums they have enough hit songs to be able to do that.

Corresponding albums in parentheses.

Grouplove – Ways to Go (Spreading Rumours)

Grouplove – Lovely Cup (Never Trust a Happy Song)

Grouplove – Naked Kids (Never Trust a Happy Song)

Grouplove – Spun (Never Trust a Happy Song)

Grouplove – I’m With You (Spreading Rumours)

Grouplove – Borderlines + Aliens (Spreading Rumours)

This is a picture of what Brandon Flowers did without the rest of The Killers. I really hope they stay together. I might start a “Stay Together for the Birds” campaign.

The Killers – Shot at the Night (Direct Hits)

The Killers – Jenny Was a Friend of Mine (Hot Fuss)

The Killers – Change Your Mind (Hot Fuss)

The Killers – Why Do I Keep Counting? (Sam’s Town)

The Killers – For Reasons Unknown (Sam’s Town)

The Killers – A Dustland Fairytale (Day & Age)
