This week, “DJ AmperDan’s Monday Night Pop!” stayed true to format, spinning two hours of the best of the current Bay Area Pop and Rock scene. A musical sampler of upcoming club shows and featured bands. All put together and presented by a guy who truly loves this music.
Tonight I had a couple of cool new tracks to share. The first is by a Portland band called Slutty Hearts whose new single “Red Salt” really blew me away when I heard it earlier this week. A wonderful little pop gem to set the tone for the rest of the show. And I like the name of their CD too: “Learned It By Watching You”.
The other brand new track I was excited to play is from Two Seconds new EP “Sleep in The Yard”. For those of you who don’t know, Two Seconds are Sierra Frost and Lily Faden. They started the band in high school, and were quite active, playing all over the Bay Area, in mid- to late 2000’s. After Lily moved to NYC, Sierra did time in Elephone and formed the various incarnations of The Downer Party. But these last few months, Sierra and Lily have been working on some tracks together, and “Sleep in The Yard” is the result. And it’s fantastic. specially for those of us who only caught the bleeding tail end of their career. Check it out.
The rest of the show mostly features music by bands with shows coming up in the next week or so. A lot of great music, and well sequenced too, if I do say so myself. I real nice flow to the over all listening experience.
Or so it seemed to me as I was doing it. Of course, we won’t know just how well it came off until we listen to the podcast.
