Track List – November 2nd

This week I was thrilled to have the lovely, talented, and totally intimidating Teagan Johnston in studio with me (along with her awesome guitar player Pete) to briefly conduct an interview and perform some live songs during the first half hour of the show! She released her EP that night and I have no doubt that we will hear from her again. True story: having live artists in studio is the perfect CanCon-requirement filler.

Teagan Johnston – Monsters (Live in Studio)
Broken Bells – The Ghost Inside (Broken Bells)
Janelle Monae – Sally Ride (The Electric Lady)
Polyphonic Spree – You Don’t Know Me (Yes It’s True)
Man…Or Astro Man? – Disintegrate (Analog Series Singles)
Neko Case – Near Midnight, Honolulu (The Worse Things Get…)
Angel Haze – Same Love (Same Love Mixtape)
John Vanderslice – Diamanthunde (Vanderslice Plays Diamond Dogs)
Library Voices – If Raymond Carver Were Born In the 90’s (Summer of Lust)
Jen Titus – O Death (Supernatural OST)
The Zolas – Invisible (Invisible – Single)
Oneohtrix Point Never – Boring Angel (R Plus Seven)
