KREAM #2 - SoundsetJun 01, 2014
As I said last week, KREAM intended to focus on the magnificent Soundset Festival, which managed to sell out this year! That's really exciting except for the part where that meant that I didn't manage to attend. Well, there's always next year. I'd say a healthy dose of the show managed to be devoted to the festival, however, so hopefully y'all were able to get a taste of what kind of talent such a great local festival has to offer. Artists who performed at Soundset are preceded with an asterisk(*).
Other things worth celebrating on the show were the 20th anniversary of Beastie Boys' Ill Communication (which probably made some of you feel old but don't worry about it you're still hella relevant by virtue of reading this college radio station blog post) and the upcoming collaboration between BADBADNOTGOOD and Tony Starks himself, Ghostface Killah. The old one was hella cool too, but this one's coming out later this month and I intend to play it constantly when that happens. Until that point, I spun a solo track by each of them.
I don't have much more to say beyond the usual (although since it's just the second week, I guess this is the point where this info becomes "the usual"): hit me up on Facebook and Twitter, links to downloads provided when available, and thanks for listenin'.
You may have noticed that I make a new logo each week, and I may as well show off next week's logo to preface the next episode: it's devoted to great duos. ;)
