On this week’s show: New indie music from Seattle (Versing, TV Star) and Olympia (Field School). Taiwanese shoegaze (Manic Sheep), folky Aussie jangle (Lower Plenty), Glaswegian indie rock (Dragged Up) and kinetic Canadian indie rock (BE AFRAID). A block of synth-heavy rock, with icy-cool post-punk from Memphis (Optic Sink) and Montreal (Yocto) and lush and sweeping pop from Atlanta (Cindy Wilson). Plus a reissue w/Mission of Burma as backing band? Yup.
