New Music Night 14 DJ Sets | River Gods | 23/24 Jan.

New Music Night 14, River Gods, Cambridge, Jan. 23/24, 2013

New music! We played it! And we got older as it happened. BUT. But it made us feel younger, because awesome rock music is like that. It's what those guys were looking for in Florida. Not this guy. These guys. Anyway, that's not why you called. Here are the songs what we played whilst manning the figurative decks last night and into this birthday early morn 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, a nice surprise considering the epic bill at Great Scott with which we were coincident. 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, which have already been sitting on the Interzizzles for hours awaiting your curious eyes and twitchy fingaz. #NewMusicNight 15 will come at you, uh, sometime? Probably in March? Ready for more new in the oh-one-four? Sure you are.
