As played on Phantom 105.2, Saturday January 5, 10pm-midnight

The first show of ’08 was about shoehorning as much new music and new acts into two hours as possible. Find of the night turned to be Hercules & Love Affair, Andrew Butler and friends (including Antony of The Johnsons) making gloriously spooky slo-mo funky house. Other newbies y’all need to check out include Our Brother The Native (Yankee whippersnappers making better Sigur Ros sounds than Sigur Ros themselves), Murder Mystery (indie pop as catchy as a chilblain), Santogold (Philly punk and Mark Ronson’s onetime dog-sitter gets funky and righteous) and the mighty Thao with the Get Down Stay Down. I also played a track from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood’s majestic soundtrack for Paul Thomas Anderson’s forthcoming flick, There Will Be Blood. See, I can be magnanimous….
