Great new tunes out from Terrace Martin, Quantic, Kraak & Smaak, IDLES, and King Gizzard to get you warmed up for the weekend, and plenty of background to the foreground for the factual actuals out there.#feelthegravitySampled & AMPED with Dan Lloyd10.26.2023Sampled Funk & SoulPart 1 (00:00)Quantic feat Connie Constance – Get In The RideKraak & Smaak feat IVAR & Berenice Van Leer – Naked (Jitwam remix)Maiiah & The Angels of Libra – Please Come HomeSir Romy – BeautyFela Kuti – Stalemate (edit) Part 2 (30:54)Devon Gilfillian – Love You Anyway (stripped)Terrace Martin & Alex Isley – Glad I Found YouKendra Morris – Fine Right HereDayme Arocena feat Rafa Pabon – Suave y PegaoJNTHN STEIN feat Lyves – Higher PlacesAmanda Whiting – Discarded (Scrimshire remix) AMPED with Dan LloydPart 3 (59:35)Green Day – The American Dream Is Killing MeIdles – Dancer (ft.

As broadcast October 25, 2023 with a boatload of fierce, hard-earned independence in tow. Tonight we got on the plane once again for some wonderful traveling without moving and headed for Armenia's capital Yerevan. Much like Korea, Armenia's history has been marked heavily by interference and aggression from their its larger neighbors, but that has only hardened the Armenian people's desire for self-determination, even when it can only be over one's self. Spread all over the world now, the connection always remains to their now wholly independent country, and we took a trip all over the audio and geographic map to track down some of the best Armenian music from down the years up to the present day.#feelthegravityROUND TRIP –Armenia (Flight TD111)Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)Arkadi Dumikyan ft.

As broadcast October 24, 2023 with plenty of world for your premiere. Tonight we were very proud to give an early spin to Tessa Devine's new single "Dancing In The Rain," which is out on Thursday. We got to know Tessa while she was here as a contestant at the Busking World Cup, where she deservedly won the People's Choice Award in the finals. An infectiously gregarious character, you can check our exclusive interview with Tessa here if you want to understand more about what makes this on-the-rise artist tick and have a laugh, as she is just a joy to talk to and a very talented artist to boot. Great new tunes out this week to check out for the remainder, with Helado Negro, ivri, our friends Mecanico down in Chile, and a host of other immensely talented artists got to do a little sky dance on this night.#feelthegravityUTR10/24/2023Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)Vacations – Close QuartersMICHELLE – GlowHelado Negro – LFO (Lupe Finds Oliveros)Infinity Song – MetamorphosisMustafa – Name of GodMk.gee feat Two Star – Are You Looking UpHans Williams – Georgia Walks Part 2 (33:27)Tessa Devine – Dancing In The RainSearows – FunnyHolly Macve & Lana Del Rey – Suburban Houseivri - limbo Mini Trees – Push & PullFIGHTMASTER – Violence Part 3 (62:09)jake minch – whose you areSparky Deathcap – Winter City GhostsMecanico feat Rayos Laser – Pentallas y DesiertosPearly Drops – Take Me Down (Nourished by Time vers.)Video Age – Is It Really Over?M83 - Mirror Part 4 (95:19)Allegra Krieger – ImpasseBarrie – Hard CandyDirt Buyer – HeavenMalcolm Todd – Mr. IncorrectSir Was – Sometimes You Got ToJane Remover – Backseat Girl
As broadcast October 23, 2023 with a boatload of shiny new goods and cellophane scents. Tonight, as we are wont to do, it's time to unwrap what's been dropped from the audio multiverse and see what we liked, starting with our dear friend out of San Diego Scoobert Doobert, whose new album MOB just dropped on Friday. We also had new jawnies from Haley Johnsen, Kurt Vile, and BADBADNOTGOOD to take us through hour one in style. Part 3 the big new tunes out this week had some decent selections, with Sampha's new album Lahai being a notable new record (and the artist's first in years), just out days ago. For the final stanza we had more from the local Korean realms to finish things off with heart signs, big highlights being Say Sue Me's latest single (what a banner year they've had), along with Balming Tiger's new record that slapped down to earth on Friday. #feelthegravityNew Muses Monday10/23/2023Tracklist (st:rt)New Faves - Part 1 & 2Part 1 (00:00)Scoobert Doobert – Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)Pelicat – Still AroundQ – HelloKevin Abstract – What Should I Do?BADBADNOTGOOD feat Charlotte Day Wilson – SleeperBombay Bicycle Club feat Damon Albarn – Heaven Part 2 (31:30)Haley Johnsen – That Ain't LoveDallas Tamaira – LevelsJapan, Man – Why Do People ChangeBeabadoobee feat Laufey – A Night to RememberKurt Vile – Another good year for the rosesLEENALCHI – Ultimate Prescription Part 3 – Poppin' Off!

As broadcast October 20, 2023 with plenty of meteorites and lightshow magic to spare. It's another feelgood Friday and we've melded our Space Madness series into the mix as well, as the very long tail of dust and magic hits earth's atmosphere this weekend from the visit of Haley's Comet almost 40 years ago in 1986. Known as the Orionid Meteor showers, we started to think of it as Orion Smiling down upon us from way out in space, and our playlist reflected that to get your weekend going in the right way.#feelthegravityOrion Smiles Upon Us10/20/2023Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)James Brown – Sunny (Funk Master JB vs Funkmaster JS Hardboiled remix)James Brown – There Was A Time (Kenny Dope edit)War – BalleroSam & Dave – Hold On (I'm Coming) (King Most remix)Clarence Reid – Masterpiece (Kenny Dope edit)Syl Johnson – Different Strokes Part 2 (30:03)Yann Tomita – We Travel The SpacewaysSpace Dukes – Sunshine On VenusSweeps – Space BluesSun Ra – Love In Outer Space (In Session for BBC Jazz on 3) Part 3 (58:29)Quelle Rox – Space ParadeDragonfruit – Space TravelerThe Midnight Hour feat Cee-Lo Green – QuestionsSay She She – In My HeadKendra Morris – Catch The SunRoy Ayers – The Golden RodRoy Ayers – Life Just A Moment Pt 1 & 2 Part 4 (90:22)A Tribe Called Quest – The Space ProgramCortex – La RueThe Supremes – He's My Sunny BoyThe Impressions – We're A WinnerHank Ballard & The Midnight Lighters – From The Love SideFreddie Hubbard – Pensativa (Live at Club La Marchal, NYC 1965)

As broadcast October 18, 2023 with plenty of eras, styles, and cultures in tow! Tonight Danno and Dunia's weekly (mis)adventures continue in The Lion City of Singapore. Located at a dominating point on the Straits of Malacca, Singapore has been a magnet for cultures all over the region and much farther afield for hundreds of years, and that has not changed in the modern era. The music reflects this cultural milieu, with Chinese, Southeast Asian, Indian, Korean, Japanese, and Western influences all easy to spot to the trained ear.

As broadcast October 17, 2023 with more than enough on the docket. As we approach the latter half of this extremely busy two months in new music, we are covering a lot of new indie albums and general stuff we couldn't cover on Monday night that it's kinda crazy. New EP's and albums from the likes of Geese, PawPaw Rod, Adam Melchor, MUNYA, Maple Glider, and Squirrel Flower are just the beginning. We also had debut singles from a couple of exciting new projects in the process, and that's not even mentioning exciting albums coming out later this and early next year!

As broadcast October 16, 2023 for the first Monday in a while while! Tonight in our first New Muses Monday in quite some time, there were a lot of albums dropping from space and huge announcements as well. The foremost in our first hour being the second career solo album from Alabama Shakes vocalist Brittany Howard, who dropped the title track to the What Now LP, slated for release next year. First hour we had new albums to talk about from L'Rain, Helena Deland, Jamila Woods, and veteran Japanese band Lamp. Once we hit part three, the big bomb to drop is the latest LP from Bad Bunny, and we also had Pink Pantheress dropping a solo album in just a few weeks' time. Great stuff from the Korean indie and bubbling under K-pop scene as well in part 4, with ADOY heading to SXSW Sydney next month along with tunes from Summer Soul and Chamsom to check out, amongst others.

As broadcast October 13, 2023 with plenty of conflicting vibes in tow. Today is obviously Friday the 13th, a bad luck day in most peoples' minds, but Danno grew up in a household where his mother, born on Friday January 13, 1956, always considered it a lucky day. So, as dedication to Danno's fierce protector and the lover of vintage and scary movies in his life, we had a bit of a bifurcated playlist tonight, with parts 1 & 2 all witches, and stepping on cracks while we finished with a 2nd hour of good luck, positive vibes, and just general sunlight to also help all of you get over it if today freaks you out a bit.#feelthegravityFriday the 13th XLIVOct 13, 2023Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – Bad LuckKelly Finnigan – TroubleAaron Frazer – Bad NewsThe Supremes – Bad Weather (Reflex Revision)Steely Dan – Deacon Blues Part 2 (32:49)Adekunle Gold – SinnerSerebii ft Skud Gambosi – Don't You Feel LuckyArjuna Oakes & Serebii - SatellitesGenevieve York feat Teo Oliveras – Better at Bad ThingsMargot Guryan – I'd Like To See The Bad Guys WinHana Eid – WeirdDehd – LuckyNilufer Yanya – Same Damn LuckDehd - Desire Part 3 (60:36)Aretha Franklin – Dr. Feelgood (Live in The Netherlands, 1968)Etta James – At LastClassics IV – SpookyOsole – Good DayLEISURE – All The Good Times Never DieThe Mighty Bop – Feelin' Good!Beyond Luck – Nature's Meditation feat Keter Darker Part 4 (91:16)Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – He Said I Can (Live at The Apollo)Emma Donovan & The Putbacks – My GoodnessRichard Swift – Lady LuckBlondage – Lucky Black SkirtJungle – Can't Stop The StarsUniversal Togetherness Band – Lucky Stars
As broadcast October 12, 2023 with more new jewels than the scale could weigh. Well, what a difference a couple weeks makes. When last we were able to do our funk punk soul rock Thursday night, it was seemingly eons ago given the amount of new singles and albums that dropped in the meantime. Both hours had honestly more than two hours could handle, with new albums out from Alanna Royale, Say She She, CARRTOONS, and Cleo Sol featured in the first hour, and with Dan Lloyd's bumper crop of tracks we discussed the new remix album from Paramore, along with new albums dropping tomorrow from Crosses, Blink 182, and a very exciting lead single from I Don't Know How But They Found Me, who are dropping a new album early next year!#feelthegravitySampled & AMPED ThursdazeOct 12, 2023Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 - Sampled Funk & Soul (00:00)CARRTOONS feat Haile Supreme – SpaceshipsAlanna Royale – Run AroundSay She She – The WaterIzo Fitzroy – Black InsidesKamaal Williams - Dogtown Part 2 (31:27)Ohio Players – Our Love Has Died The Teskey Brothers – Rain (Live at Red Rocks, 2023)Cleo Sol – DesireNogymx – South of the RiverSirens of Lesbos – Sweet Harmony Hailu Mergia – Yegle Nesh (Live) Part 3 – AMPED with Dan Lloyd (63:09)Sleater-Kinney – HellBlink 182 – Dance With MeSum 41 – LandminesCrosses – Ghost RideParamore – This Is Why (Foals Remix)U2 – Atomic City Part 4 (97:11)English Teacher – Nearly DaffodilsThe Menzingers – Come on HeartacheMe Rex – Infinity Worm Crawlers – Would You Come to My FuneralA.

As broadcast October 11, 2023 with plenty of twang to do your thang. Tonight Danno & Dunia embark on their first proper round trip in a few weeks' time due to the Chuseok holiday and the Busking World Cup, and this is one both of them have had burning in the pocket for a while now. Nashville is literally Music City, so whatever genre you're talking about, there's some mind-blowing artist in that area of the audiosphere that is a top notch musician. From legends like Dolly Parton and Kitty Wells to newer additions to the city's ever-expanding roster of artists in resident like Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Alanna Royale, and Charli Adams...there's something for everyone on this one!#feelthegravityROUND TRIP – Nashville (Flight TD109)Oct 11, 2023Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)Allman Brothers Band – Ramblin' ManDolly Parton – JoleneBecca Mancari – Summertime MamaThe Black Keys – Mind EraserBriston Maroney – Freakin' Out On The InterstateBarbara Mandrell - Love Is Thin Ice Part 2 (31:55)Miley Cyrus - Used To Be YoungThe Civil Wars – Poison & WineKitty Wells - It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk AngelsRoy Acuff - The Wabash Cannonball Devon Gilfillian – The Good LifeTim McGraw - Highway Don't Care ft.

As broadcast October 10, 2023 with plenty of friends in tow. Tonight we open with David Skimming, the mastermind behind the Lunar Isles project, which has made some of the best guitar-centric surf dreams in indie anywhere over the past few years, not just in Korea. His latest is a lovely upbeat affair that is the perfect way to get back into the mode after the Busking World Cup and a bevvy of holidays here in Korea. After that, we had plenty of friends to ride with tonight, as Broken Baby, Scoobert Doobert, and Otis Kane all had fresh cuts to feature in part one, and there was plenty more in store after that with notable joints just out from Masego, Meernaa, veronicavon, Kevin Abstract, and a slew of other worthies, including a great new album from Norwegian cinematic instrumental outfit Orion's Belte called Women, which is absolutely superb and full of surprises.#feelthegravityUTR 10/10/2023Under The RadarTracklist (st:rt)Part 1 (00:00)Lunar Isles – ArrivalScoobert Doobert – All I NeedWild Nothing – Dial ToneBroken Baby – Ugly Polo & Pan – ChamallowKraak & Smaak feat Otis Kane – Ready for YaIzyBeats w/ Masego & Toian – Tipsy Part 2 (33:04)Meernaa – Love Is GoodRobohands – DrivenHoly Hive & The Shacks – Middle of the NightMndsgn – MakeUsuper natural lime – The Boat Pelicat – Safe & Soundveronicavon - Dreamgirl Part 3 (61:13)Katie Ferrara – Loud and ProudHoneywhip – PolaroidKevin Abstract – Blanket bed bug guru – Tightrope Born Days – DreamsA Beacon School – Mantra Part 4 (91:16)Busty & The Bass feat Son Little – Give Me A SmileHala – Run to YouPrateek Kuhad – MulaqatLake Street Dive feat Madison Cunningham – Neighbor SongGeorgia Gets By – Fish Bird Baby BoyOrions Belte feat Oyvind Torvund – I Will Always Miss YouOrions Belte feat Louien – When You're Gone I'll Be Gone
As broadcast October 9, 2023 with plenty of good vibes in tow for the festival hangover. Tonight, in our final edition of the Busking World Cup Special Series, we welcomed two very talented artists to the studio for a heavy dose of folk, classics, and just downright sunshine as one of the best ongoing events in Gwangju wraps its 2nd edition. First hour we welcomed Pompey native folk singer Sam Brothers to the show, who not only is the spitting image of David Bowie and Mick Jagger's long-rumored love child, but also took us on a journey of influences across a variety of eras and styles. For our final busking guests of the week, we welcomed Steph and Georgie Fisher, who are the Sydney-born Berlin-based duo that comprise Sissos. Much like their own places of connection in this world, they showcased some of their friends from both places, and talked about the duality of family and artistry in a fascinating and exceedingly funny interview to wrap the week properly.#feelthegravityBusking World Cup 2023 Special #62023.10.09Tracklist (st:rt) Part 1 with Sam Brothers (00:00)Sam Brothers – Still I'm Here, As AlwaysColter Wall – The Devil Wears A Suite and Tie (Original 16 Brewery Sessions)Sonny Terry – Key To The Highway (Live at Sugar Hill)Devendra Banhart – Now That I KnowVan Morrison – Star of the County DownJoanna Newsom – Easy Part 2 (37:56)Sam Brothers – Gwangju Busking World Cup App VideoBob Dylan – On More Cup of CoffeeJoni Mitchell – CaliforniaJeff Buckley – GracePlanxty – As I Roved Out Part 3 with Sissos (69:08)Sissos – You Can't Have BothJessie Monk – Gets Me DownStu Larsen – Lost in a HazeJoe Mungovan – Soaking Up The SunshineSonny Casey – A Thousand Setting SunsMichael Brinkworth – Good Old Feeling Part 4 (1:43:10)Sissos – Leave My Dreams for MeFirst Aid Kit – My Silver LiningLucas Laufen – WeatheringJulia Jacklin – ComfortJudy Blank – KaraokePaul Kelly – To Her Door
As broadcast October 8, 2023 with plenty of variety for everyone. Tonight we welcomed a very wild and worldly collective named Famous Japanese to take over hour one of the show. We talked with their Berlin-based lead singer Nanako in the studio as the band took us on a rousing trip through their influences, which include traditional Japanese folk songs, Turkish and Middle Eastern vibes, and so much more. It's honestly hard to even know who or what shows up when the band is in town, as they can morph up to eight members and we cannot recommend their show in Seoul this coming week with No.1 Korean, as that should be a very unique experience. Speaking of unique, our second hour we welcomed Melbourne-based vocalist Tanya George, who discussed her appearances on The Voice Australia along with support from the Lord Mayor herself! An incredibly interesting look into Tanya George's creative process with influences listed from Billie Eilish, Jamiroquai, Florence + The Machine, and more famous names along with local Aussie shouts for AKOSIA, Blush'ko and Tayana Taylor in the process.#feelthegravityBusking World Cup 2023 Special #52023.10.08Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 with Famous Japanese (00:00)Famous Japanese – Famous JapaneseSayuri Ishikawa – Tsugaru Strait/Winter SceneryKula Shaker – Govinda Ismail Kivrak – MastikaIkuzo Yoshi – We're going to TokyoPink Lady – Pink Typhoon (In The Navy)Gultekin Ekrem – Damat Oyunu Part 2 (35:07)Famous Japanese – ABUDAEBIBeats Antique – EgypticDALI – Moonlight LegendNo.1 Korean – RosaTOSH – Something's WrongKen Matsudaira - Ken EDM Part 3 with Tanya George (66:15)Tanya George – WoodlandBillie Eilish – What Was I Made For?AKOSIA – GOErykah Badu – AppletreeBlush'ko – Know You Better Part 4 (97:22)Tanya George – WelcomeFlorence + The Machine – You've Got The LoveAriana Grande – Into YouH.E.R. – Focus Jamiroquai – Virtual InsanityTeyana Taylor – Gonna Love Me
As broadcast October 7, 2023 with plenty of good tunes and good people in tow. Tonight we enter part four of our six chapter Busking World Cup spotlight with a couple of wanderers who have happened to touch down here in Gwangju for the 2nd annual event held in our fair City of Light. First up is a semi-nomadic artist out of far northern Cairns, Australia named Tessa Devine. A brilliant singer-songwriter, Tessa Devine actually ended up winning the People's Choice Award at the event as the audience's favorite, and she's certainly a favorite in our hearts as well. In an interview showing both her very free spirit and tasteful selection process, Devine shouted out some of her favorite Aussie compatriots in an hour of excellent music and an at times uproarious interview. Hour two we highlighted a rather wild trio making their debut at the Busking World Cup called Music In The Jungle. The trio of Jacelyn, Katie, and DJ 2Shay certainly were one of more original artists on the roster this year, with a repertoire that included live paintings made with each appearance. Katie and 2Shay literally came straight into the studio with luggage and everything in tow fresh off their flight, and the trio took us through a selection of tunes from their favorite audio compadres in the world along with their roots in Canada and the place they met in Costa Rica.#feelthegravityBusking World Cup 2023 Special #42023.10.07Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 with Tessa Devine (00:00)Tessa Devine – It's YouRob Howe – CarolinaTullara – Better Hold OnTones and I – Fly AwayFelipe Baldomir – YouLT – Act Your Age Part 2 (33:15)Tessa Devine – WildAmber Reid – Side LinedThe Dreggs – You and MeMardi Wilson – SaltyGreta Stanley – It's Cool to Be in LoveKim Churchill – Window to the Sky Part 3 with Music In The Jungle (63:55)Jacelyn – FoolLeh-lo – Patience Zig ZagNya Marquez – 7 ElevenDonavon Lee Carpenter – Born to Love YouMan Crush – Don't Be Trippin'Editus feat Manuel Monestel – Cahuita Is a Beautiful Place Part 4 (96:40)Jacelyn feat Asha – Kaleidoscope GRiZ – Mystik DubClari Sol – Yin YangEddy Ruyter – DaydreamPanArmonia – Oli Gis AnthizeiGwen McCrae feat Ferry Ultra – Let Me Do My Thang (dOP remix)*
As broadcast October 6, 2023 with plenty of gregarious laughs along the way. Tonight we welcomed two great Europe-based artists to the show as our Busking World Cup celebration continues into day three. First up, we welcomed Dutch-Indonesian Dublin-based artist Jacob Koopman, who is the only artist in the world who has featured in both editions of Gwangju's famed celebration of street players everywhere. Jacob talked about his transition from being a drummer to guitarist, showed a bit of his metal side, and talked some of the music that has inspired his own sound since moving into the multi-instrumentalist realm. For the second hour, we welcomed a trio of internationalist legends in Diogo Picao, Olmo Marin, and Juninho Ibituruna to the studio for a lot of laughs and an exploration of their friends doing amazing things back home in Lisbon, and the absolutely unbelievable local legend that Juninho is in the Portuguese capital.#feelthegravityBusking World Cup 2023 Special #32023.10.06Tracklist (st:rt)Part 1 with Jacob Koopman (00:00)Jacob Koopman feat Neolithic – Tell meJakub Zytecki – Light a Fire (Fight a Liar)brakence – rosier/punk2Sueco – LoserSaibh Skelly feat Jacob Koopman – Is Your Bedroom Ceiling BoredDaisy Chute – London's On Fire Part 2 (31:46)Jacob Koopman – Weight of the WavePolyphia – Playing GodPolyphia feat Sophia Black – ABCDiogo Picão – Ais ou Menos Josiah & The Bonnevilles – Chronically Cautious (Country vers)Futurescape feat Dani Barilli – wake me up Part 3 with Diogo Picão (62:31)Diogo Picão - Palavras CarasSambacalao - Deu à CostaOrquestra Latinidade – CajóCristina Clara - Lua Nicolás Farruggia - Olho d'águaLuca Argel - Gentrificasamba Part 4 (1:40:03)Diogo Picão - Credo João Pires – CAÊDandara - Para um amor em ParisNancy Vieira - Peca sem dorJhon Douglas – NeuzianaTcheka - Storia Estrada
