MPFREE: 5TH APRIL 2011
It's a bit gloomier here in London town today so we thought we'd reflect that in the choice of tune, especially after yesterday's sunshine sound. (It may be a little darker but it's still very uplifting!)
Okkervil River hail from Austin, Texas, a place not renowned for its heavy precipitation but whom nonetheless evoke an atmosphere of rainier climes. They've been around since 1998 and are about to release their seventh album I Am Very Far and will be visiting London for a one-off date at Heaven on May the 16th.
You can get your free download of their new track Wake and Be Fine from their website.
On the show today we launched a new feature, waving a fond farewell to DJ Vu and a big hello to Bio-Rhythms! Basically we're wanting you to submit three tracks each of which correspond to your physical, emotional and intellectual feelings, the life cycles or biorhythms which, some believe affect our moods and general well being.
So which song makes you feel like dancing, which one gets you weepy and which one gives you an intellectual sense of superiority?
If you'd like to have your choices aired and chat to Lauren on air then email the show from Lauren's page and we could be in touch!
