Altrok Radio's New Music 071
by Sean Carolan

Altrok Radio adds Kaiser Chiefs, Raveonettes, Art Brut, New Order and much much more...


Here's where you can hear Altrok Radio:


Altrok Radio plays new music the way Independent Alternative radio once did. We don't throw on the latest cookie-cutter rap/metal outfit that's being marketed as "alternative". But if it's new, it's interesting, and it's challenging, it's on our stream. (And we'll play older stuff that's interesting and challenging, too.)

Update 4/22/05: Here's the latest adds for the week:
    Art Brut - Emily Kane
    Dead 60s, The - Riot Radio
    Raveonettes, The - Sleepwalking
    Kaiser Chiefs - Everyday I Love You Less And Less
    Mando Diao - Clean Town
    New Order - Dracula's Castle
    Architecture In Helsinki - Do The Whirlwind
    Wombats, The - Happily Screwed
    Lab Partners - Now
    Spoon - My Mathematical Mind
    Blue Van, The - Revelation Of Love
    Mountain Goats, The - This Year

Each week, Jeff Raspe picks an outstanding track from a brand-new album. This week, the pick is:
    Blink - Snow White Has Let You Down Again

And in our Grinder this week...
    British Sea Power - Oh Larsen B
    Fischerspooner - Cloud
    Pluto - Dance Stamina
    Beck - Girl
    House Of Love, The - Days Run Away
    Le Tigre - Tell You Now

Live365's editors made us the Alternative Editor's Pick in May 2004, as did About.com, so there's a small but growing group of people that count on us for the best new music we can find, and the best classic alternative dredged from the canals of our (rapidly fading) memory.

So, in short, you can listen to Altrok Radio in 64k MP3Pro here...

(and remember: on weekend evenings, the Muddy Channel is home to the Party Gone Out Of Bounds - the perfect soundtrack to the kind of house party you thought only existed in old John Hughes movies. Try it and see!)
