We'll be forgoing any convuluted themes or metapohrical musical explorations here on Bridging the Gap tonight. Instead: upbeat, heartbeat-raising music - plain and simple.

So Tonight on Bridging the Gap I wanted to do something of a deep dive on the Light in the Attic Record label. They specialize in previously unreleased or "lost" recordings from often forgotten artists. They also feature re-releases from cult musicians or more contemporary artists. Expect plenty of new, strange and eclectic sounds for this one.

In the world of butchery, the "off cuts" are the harder to find or less desirable cuts that prove just as juicy and just as desirable when given the proper appreciation. I'd like to think the same goes for music, so tonight we'll be playing some musical off cuts: lesser known tracks by well known artists and really great tracks by artists that are virtually unknown in the mainstream.

Tonight's Bridging the Gap is pretty straightforward: tons of indie new releases. We start the night off mellow and finish up the show with some heavier garage and psych rock tracks.

This week we're commemorating the 50th Aniversary of the Lunar Landing. More specifically, here on Bridging the Gap, we'll be playing nothing but moon-related songs and tracks. Believe it or not, plenty of artists have at least one moon-related song. 

For tonight's Bridging the Gap, Harrison Patino explores some of the most exciting new releases in indie, folk, world, punk and much more. All new music from across the musical spectrum.

For tonight's Bridging the Gap, DJ Harrison Patino fills in for DJ Mr. Nick - eschewing genre and categoritzation to jump from one end of the musical map to the other. Expect lots of indie, world, folk - and everything in between.

When legendary promoter, Tom Moffatt, passed last month, eyes turned to the team at Bamp Project as the most likely successors in the very important task of booking Hawai‘i’s entertainment offerings.  If that’s the case, the guys at Bamp say they have several decades ahead to prove themselves.  Meanwhile, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports there’s quality and diversity so far in the 2017 line up.
