The world that deliberately-lowercased beabadoobee presents in her new album Beatopia is pastel neon colors, soothing howls, bright shadows, and all manner of psychedelic oxymorons. Tonight’s show features its introduction of sorts, and closes with the unexpected krautrock drone of my current favorite discovery, Japan’s deliberately-uppercased MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS, whose all-over-the-placeness manages to live up to its intriguing name.

In this episode: B. Fleischmann, beabadoobee, Beach Bunny, Blue Skies for Black Hearts, Camper Van Beethoven, The Chats, David Bowie, Delicate Steve, Fantastic Negrito, Friendship, Jake Wade & The Soul Searchers, Kevin Morby, Kid Koala, Kiwi jr., Kurt Vile, LMNOP, Maggie Rogers, MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS, The Mattoid, Mexican Institute of Sound, Momma, Nanuchka, Of Montreal, Osees, Panda Bear & Sonic Boom, Panda Riot, The Police, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, The Sadies, Scarves, Servotron, The Smithereens, The Soft Boys, Ty Segall, The Vaselines, Viagra Boys feat.
