Rubber badger hit the radio airwaves. In a stunt to promote our website on the pacific northwest lifestyle we played our web-only first single in the “radio sink”. In this mode the music being played is not tuned in to a radio station, it is digitized in the most crude of formats from cassette tapes and vinyl records, fed into the amplifiers and then cranked up to a semi-permanent 40,000 watts output at a frequency of approximately 145.95 MHz. Our tiny piece of radio-subterfuge was featured on a local Seattle radio station along with some heavy metal bands playing a gig at the Warfield theatre. As well, we were offered a spot as an invited guest on the on air commercial showcase. Many call this radio site the “Music and Media Blog” as it acts as a “collective music experience” and updates its followers in real time. We write a lot about the Pacific Northwest music scene, and also write about what is happening in music today.
pianodhatch has just returned to his home state of Oregon. He and a friend were lucky enough to sit in with L.A.W. to give an impromptu acoustic set. Check out his clip below:
L.A.W. played a few songs, including Hellz Yutz, a fan favorite, which he and rad played live in 2013. It’s great to see him and his band perform after a long hiatus. He’s recently been in the studio recording another new album, called At the Traffic Light.
Last night, I shared some tunes from our “Rubber Badger Radio Spot” with Josh Feeny, aka Foxy on Portland’s Q95.9. He liked it so much he decided to play the rest of our album on the station this morning. I can’t tell you how much this means to us and we are honoured. We were totally blown away. We hope to have a new video up on our site and our following continues to grow, as well as the new album being released.
I also started to become excited about our next album a few weeks ago. Here is the first cut from the new EP:
As I finish up this post, I am off to DJ a classic rock program on the mid-day time slot. Later today, Josh Feeny and I will be playing the album in sequence, followed by our new song for an acoustic set.
