You'll want to listen to this week's show on a good pair of headphones, preferably in the dark and, if you take drummer Ian Chang's advice, while getting a massage. We open the program with a spine-tingling cut called "ASMR," from Chang's debut solo EP, an arresting instrumental piece inspired by the inexplicable chills that sometimes run down your back. It's just the first in a series of sonic delights on the show. 1. Ian Chang: "ASMR," 2. Common Holly: "If After All," 3. The Weather Station: "Thirty," 4. Josh Ritter: "Showboat," 5. Flotation Toy Warning: "A Season Underground," 6. Moses Sumney: "Doomed," 7. From The Mouth Of The Sun: "Light Blooms In Hollow Space."view more
