Pop Drones Episode January 5, 2011

Broadcast on 05-Jan-2011

10:00am - 11:30am

As expected, great records released near the end of 2010 have been popping up like crazy. Had I heard it in time, The Estrogen Highs newest LP would surely have made the 2010 shortlist for the year ender. Full of clear-eyed and upbeat garage strummers, Friends And Relatives keep the songs here short and simple, lead by the singer's Thurston Moore-like delivery. Think Early 90s GBV and Sebadoh mixed with an overdose of contagious Kiwi-pop and yr getting close. One of the band member's did a mix for a blog from their hometown of New Haven, Connecticut, so you can check out their recent listening habits and influences. As luck would have it, Estrogen Highs will be hitting Vancouver on January 19th and will be playing alongside Manic Attracts and Timecopz, the latter of which will be in support of their new split seven inch with Fist City released on Geographing. Make sure to head down to this one and snatch up some fresh merch. I'll also be giving away a pair of tickets to the show on the morning of the 19th, so tune in to CITR 101.9FM between 10am-1130am for a chance at them.
