New Music Night 13 DJ Sets | River Gods | 21/22 Nov.

New Music Night 13, River Gods, Cambridge, Nov. 21/22, 2013

Hey there, ho there, heigh ho, heigh ho. Friday Friday Friday! We're trying to pump ourself up because we are super-tired. Fascinating and rare blogger insight, right? Anyway, that's not why you called. Here are the songs what we played whilst manning the figurative decks last night and into this morning in the booth at the fabulous River Gods in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mr. 'Nac and I spun the new sounds for the people, quite a crowd, unusual in that there were only a couple familiar faces. Who are all these other random people who like the new music? No matter, our playlist is below; if you have any questions or want to know more about the songs below, hit us on Twitter or drop a comment. Also, please click over to Bradley's Almanac and check out Brad's playlists for the 9PM and 11PM hours once he gets them online. #NewMusicNight 14 will come at you in 2014, which we totally planned (not really) because we are geniuses (really). Ready for more new in the oh-one-four? Sure you are.
