Lights-Camera-30 Countdown

#15 Tunng

I had mentioned a couple days ago when talking about Laura Marling & Mike Lindsay's LUMP collaboration ("Rolling Thunder" was #17 in the countdown,) that Mike Lindsay's band Tunng was lurking nearby. Well here they are! Tunng is a six-piece collective out of London founded by Lindsay and Sam Genders in 2003. They specialize in a fusion of folk and electronica known as "folktronica." "Songs You Make at Night" is their sixth album. It was released in August and though I'm not doing an official album-countdown this year, I would say this record is absolutely in my Top-10 for favorite albums of 2018! This is one I play start to finish and repeat. Here's my favorite track off the record... It's called "Dark Heart" and it's #15 on the Lights-Camera-30 playlist.


Today's photo selection is a shot I took of the Boston Common and Duck Pond all lit-up for the holidays. Taking good night photos from a helicopter that's moving around 100-mph can be a bit tricky. The twilight just after sunset is a great time to capture shots of city-lighting with just enough daylight left to assist with focusing.

Anniversary-30 Countdown

#15 Julian Cope

Though I came into my first radio experience at college radio station WKKL (Cape Cod, Massachusetts) with a decent knowledge of Alternative Rock music, there were certainly plenty of artists I had never been exposed to before. Julian Cope was one of the them. Born in Wales, he's not only a singer & musician, but also an author, antiquarian, and poet among other things. He was a founding member of the post-punk band Teardrop Explodes. They recorded for five years, before Cope embarked on his solo career in 1983.


"My Nation Underground" was his fourth solo-album and it was one of my favorite LP's in the WKKL new-music bin back in 1988. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, I'm adding the track "Charlotte Anne" to the Anniversary-30 playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
