Ok. I usually don't blog about stuff like this (music related) because I don't really know enough about it, but I thought this was pretty cool and right in line with what makes podcasting cool for me. This new podcast will have exclusive in-studio performances, unreleased songs from independant artists and well-known artists alike.
In the first few weeks, listeners will receive unreleased songs from Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Tom Brousseau and Silversun Pickups, live studio performances from Mike Doughty, They Might Be Giants and Northwest hip-hop band Common Market, and studio recordings from Cloud Cult, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Calexico/Iron and Wine.
Here is KEXP's Song of the Day line-up for the first ten days:
>> Monday 2/6 Ted Leo and the Pharmacists "Sons of Cain"
>> Tuesday 2/7 Cloud Cult "Transistor Radio"
>> Wednesday 2/8 Clap Your Hands Say Yeah "Upon This Tidal Wave of Young
>> Thursday 2/9 They Might Be Giants "New York City"
>> Friday 2/10 Common Market "Connect For"
