BDJ In-Studio Performance with Foxtails Brigade

Like an intricate series of music spinning gears, Foxtail's Brigade sounds like a Rube Goldberg-designed coo coo clock. The band's latest album came out this week and they stopped by CapRadio to perform songs and talk with Nick Brunner.

BDJ - Meet The Empire Builder

Let's get to know Laura Gibson, shall we? Her newest record came out yesterday. It's strong, vulnerable, peppy & sorrowful. ALSO! Eleanor Friedberger, PJ Harvey, Guided By Voices, Kaki King and Pulp. Dig It.

BDJ - Is On Point...

2016 has been an unkind reminder that our heroes are mortal. This week the world lost The Funky Diabetic, The Five Foot Assassin, Phife Dawg: founding member of A Tribe Called Quest. We pay homage to his work and a local tribute to ATCQ.

I found Ryan Adams's 1989 cover album in the CD library and squealed with glee. And thus, a show was born.

BDJ - Get Down! Los Alamos Grind

This weekend it's an extended sampling of two very new, very different records. It's Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, a new comp of Hot Rod rock, plus a salute to local artists past & present as we get ever closer to the 24th annual SAMMIES. Dig It.

Blue Dog Jam - Lots and Lots of Live

This week's show is full of new and neo-country, punk rock of all shades and, in a lead-up to the Sammies, a fat set of bands recorded here at CapRadio. Dig it.
