#17: Giant Sand, “Heartbreak Pass”

In this week’s playlist we focus on the new Giant Sand album, Heartbreak Pass. Here’s to more 30 years of Howe Gelb writing better songs than you! One of the acts to check on this years’ NOS Primavera Sound in about a month. Be sure to check Twerps as well – we’ll let you know when the festival’s timetable is available! I wish I could say My Morning Jacket would be there too… Their new record is amazing. What a time to be alive.

Guest post: Peter Broderick – photographer and musician

Peter Broderick is one of those artists who has such a wide range of things he does.  At times his music is reminiscent of the more ambient aspects of Aphex Twin; at other times he has kind of a weird version of a Ben Folds vibe going.
