March 13th 2017 – March 19th 2017 – BNQT – Restart

This week’s Best In Show is a tune from BNQT, a new indie rock supergroup made up of members from Midlake, Band of Horses, Franz Ferdinand, Travis, and Grandaddy. “Restart” was debuted on radio UNLEASHED last week, and we got a great response. The song can be found on the band’s debut album, Volume I, due out at the end of April on Dualtone/Bella Union. For more information visit facebook.com/bnqtband.

January 30th 2017 – February 5th 2017 – Slowdive – Star Roving

We’re spoiled for choices for this week’s Best In Show, but we’re going with what indicates a strong return for the recently reunited Slowdive. “Star Roving” is the first release from the British band in 22 years, and marks their debut for the Dead Oceans label. Look for a new album soon, and US dates this Spring. For more info visit slowdiveofficial.com.
