This week’s Indie Rock Hit Parade, like most weeks’, is a special one. Tonight’s show (starting at 11pm ET on WXPN, right after What’s The Frequency??? with John Vettese), will spotlight not one, not two, but fifteen releases from 2016! We’ll dig into a few newly released albums, namely those from fuzz freaks Thee Oh Sees, celebrated funk-twisters of Montreal, gut-punch punks Field Mouse and more, plus hear from some of the year’s most exceptional recordings so far. It shouldn’t surprise you that we’ll get to tracks from Parquet Courts, Big Thief and Car Seat Headrest, but there might also be a few albums in the mix whose initial releases you might have missed. It’s part best of, part new music showcase, part treasure hunt. It’s the Indie Rock Hit Parade, and it’s coming for you.
