Michael Y 10:41:53 AM
Is there a connection between K.C. Accidental and Broken Social Scene that I'm remembering?
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:43:19 AM
Yup!
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:43:35 AM
KC Accidental was the group between Brendan Cannning and Kevin Drews that preceded BSS
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:43:46 AM
They also named a song KC Accidental on You Forgot It In People
Michael Y 10:44:08 AM
Ahh yes!
Gaby Ripoll 10:49:03 AM
Ooh I love this. Good morning all
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:49:22 AM
Good morning gaby!
Gaby Ripoll 10:50:14 AM
Between the title and sound, feels like it should be on a Wes Anderson soundtrack
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:51:18 AM

Austin Hounsel (host) 10:51:22 AM

Austin Hounsel (host) 10:59:11 AM
I didn't know I needed that in my life
Austin Hounsel (host) 10:59:13 AM
Thank you
Gaby Ripoll 11:00:15 AM
Kinda reminds me of These Days by Nico
Christine 🦊 11:00:30 AM
@connor, beautiful. Do you know who the artist is?
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:00:34 AM
yeah a little bit! I hear it in the strings
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:01:03 AM
now I wanna listen to Nico
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:01:10 AM
Chelsea Girls is a near perfect album
Gaby Ripoll 11:01:50 AM
It really is
connor 11:04:43 AM
@christine thats from a slice of life anime called Shirokuma Cafe. Penguin is a regular at Polar Bear’s cafe haha
Christine 🦊 11:05:19 AM
@connor, domo!
Gaby Ripoll 11:07:48 AM
What instrument is this right now?
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:08:04 AM
No idea, I wish I knew because it sounds awesome
Gaby Ripoll 11:09:04 AM
Reminds me of a jaw harp, but on a close mic and played very slowly
Colin 11:11:21 AM
Sometimes one does not realize they are in the mood for panda bear till one hears panda bear.
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:13:18 AM
HARD AGREE
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:13:34 AM
Bros will always be my favorite song ever
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:14:14 AM
Gonna play the first song from the EP now because it's such a good EP
Colin 11:14:53 AM
As far as what that sound is, me thinks it is a sample of an effected guitar effected even further. seems like a thing they would do.
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:15:47 AM
Yeah that was my thought, a guitar with tons of effects
Christine 🦊 11:16:30 AM

Li Maria 11:20:15 AM
Good morning! Really digging the last 2 Panda songs. Always find another album to add to my collection on this show

Hey Li! That's very sweet of you to say :)
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:23:36 AM
I will gladly play Panda Bear any week
Li Maria 11:24:54 AM
this is good, too. Do you know what year it's from?
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:26:22 AM
Lemme see
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:26:58 AM
Hmm, Discogs doesn't have the year, but here's the release page: https://www.discogs.com/release/5683512-Phillip-Parkinson-Control-Them-Take-Us-Home
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:27:14 AM
It's from the Twinkle Brothers' label, which put out a lot of high quality reggae
Austin Hounsel (host) 11:27:27 AM
(You should also check out the Twinkle Brothers!)
Li Maria 11:28:15 AM
Thanks--that's the same thing i found. I will check out Twinkle Bros! :)
Li Maria 11:44:59 AM
