Roughly 12 hours ago I was up in the River Gods DJ booth for the first New Music Night of twenty-twelve, once again splitting the 4-hour shift with fellow Boston-based music blogger extraordinaire Jay Clicky Clicky. While I've been doing the RGs DJ thing for something like 5 years now, this was just the 4th edition of the every-other-month NMN... and I've never had a more difficult time cutting my set down to a measly 2 hours. The whittling was made a bit easier once I discovered a whole lotta track overlap with Jay's pre-planned playlist - which was no surprise, really; his impeccable taste is why he's my co-pilot, after all. No way in hell was I going to let him play Destroyer's New Order cover, though. That one was mine, ALL MINE.
Here are the songs I sent through the River Gods sound system last night. And make sure you hit up Clicky Clicky for Jay's playlist.
