This episode was done live from my front yard! The closure of Doc Branigans has resulted in WMN being homeless again, so without a studio to broadcast from, I made one myself. On my front porch, with a shit ton of snow carted down from staff housing and fashioned into a mini snowboard terrain park right in front of my eyes. What fun it was.

The music was A grade once again also. I played some gems, among others an amazing little number from brand new Vancouver based group Gold & Youth. Watch these guys they will be big I think. I have already been in touch with them and they will be hooking me up with new material as it is created, so watch this space!

The Of Monsters and Men album continues to grow on me, and I have still not stopped being obsessed with Wildcat! Wildcat!, even with only two songs released. English artist Alt-J continues to blow minds with his ingenious approach to songwriting also.

The Chromatics album is a beautiful piece of art that should definitely be checked out by anyone with even a cursory interest in music. Amazing tracks from Summer Camp, Fredrik, Tor and Drake are also featured, with a banging rock number from Pet Clinic. Finally be sure to check out the results of Zed’s Ded‘s collaboration with Omar LinX and Julia Stone. Just be aware it contains a couple of swear words!
