Altrok Radio's Underground Pick Of The Week

Each Week, Jeff Raspe picks an outstanding track from a brand-new album. This week, the pick is:

  • Poi Dog Pondering - A Love Rains Down - In Seed Comes Fruit

In The Grinder:

Altrok keeps a running list of new songs that get played every week on the show, until we've pretty much ground them into the dirt. Each week, one song will leave the Grinder to make room for a new one. It's shameless, but it's honest. This week in the Grinder:

  • Fountains Of Wayne - No Better Place - Welcome Interstate Managers [Grinder 15; New]
  • Gemma Hayes - Back Of My Hand - Night On My Side [Grinder 14; New]
  • Seedling - Get You 'Cause I Can - Let's Play Boys & Girls [Grinder 13]
