It was only fitting that the 150th episode of TMN Radio was one of the most eclectic yet — a true testament to how the show has pushed my music explorations forward. This episode features music from Nigeria, Mali, Turkey, Niger, France, The Congo, Ghana, England, Sweden and more making it the most internationally focused episode to date. Highlights include the beautiful Tuareg guitar of Tinariwen, psychedelic renditions of Turkish folk songs from Altın Gün, a summer essential from Ghana-natives Onipa and a medley of tracks in honor of French engineer/producer/artist Philippe Zdar who tragically passed last week. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to put this show together every week for nearly 4 years now. Help keep BFF.fm thriving and growing by contributing our Summer Sustainer fundraiser here.

[Indie/Synth-Pop] Apollo LTD – Misfits

Apollo LTD are going to have a big summer. With a new album dropping today (Out of Body) and a tour alongside The New Respects going on right now until the end of the month, this Nashville indie pop duo is on the up and up. Their latest single “Misfits” is a summer soaked anthem that feels like a ray of sunshine. The song features Jordan Phillips’ and Adam Stark’s retro-smooth production, with electronic synths and falsetto vocals all coming together for a incredibly unforgettable hook. In the past their sound has been more pop leaning but this one is tons of fun thanks to it’s funky backbone. Vibe out to “Misfits” by Apollo LTD and add it to all those summertime playlists, you won’t regret it! Be sure to give the full LP a listen as well via this link.

[Denver Event] The Underground Music Showcase 2019

Rapidly approaching, from July 26th through the 28thDenver’s preeminent indie music festival, The Underground Music Showcase has announced its lineup for 2019. After updating its format last year, and adding a plethora of new stages and venues, which now totals four outdoor main stages and over 20 indoor venues, The UMS looks to once again take the city by the reigns for one amazing weekend in late July. Dotting the top of this year’s bill are the likes of Empress Of, Honne, Chicano Batman, Black Mountain, Tuxedo, Earthgang, and Still Woozy for a certifiably heavy hitting slate of headliners; but as always, the talent buyers for the UMS have flexed their mid-card and local muscles just as hard.

Additional national support includes Yves Tumor, DRAMA, LEIKELI47, Y La Bamba, Miya Frolick, Gardens & Villa, Tessa Violet, Spooky Mansion, Greyhounds, Dressy Bessy, DBUK, Kainalu, Clavvs, Rapperchicks, Rich Jones, Divino Niño, Parallelephants, Deezie Brown, and Garrett T Capps. Coming out of Colorado, we’re getting perked up for the much buzzed about set from synth-pop duo xOxford (pronounced Oxford) who will be making their live debut at the festival, as well as Mile High stalwarts including Falcon Punch, YASI, Andy Immerman, Nasty Nachos, Bud Bronson & The Goodtimers, DeCollage, Milky.WAV, and loads more.

 

As always, we will be out in full force during the hot, end-of-july weekend, so be on the lookout for your Ninja fam! Stream the official UMS 2019 playlist below, get your weekend passes for just $50, and single day tickets for the 2019 Underground Music Showcase here.
