Ever feel like you were born in the wrong generation? Well, if the right generation is the mid-90's then you're in luck. Tons of alternative music of all stripes from that era, including a few wild cards here and there.

I wanted to start off today's show playing some new indie - but as you might expect, new music has been slow to trickle out in the past few months. So to fill out the back half we'll touch on some older eclectic tracks to round out the night. 

Reaching into the archive for a little respite tonight. For tonight's show, we'll have a roundup of cool, laid back tracks to ease you into your Thursday evening.

Upbeat indie-electro-soul-pop is what's on the agenda for tonight's episode of Bridging The Gap.

Tonight will be a little different in that our show will consist entirely of instrumentals across a wide variety of genres - particularly world, jazz and soul. Let's really test the limits here of "letting the music speak for itself."

Super calm and relaxing music for our collective post-hurricane nerves. I'm just glad we're all safe.

If you're a regular listener of the Thursday show, you know I have a tendency to follow no theme but the eclectic. Well, tonight is no different. Tons of different genres on display tonight as we weave our way through two hours of music that puts weirdness front and center.

This week marks 8 freaky years of Bridging the Gap here on Hawaii Public Radio. so as the freshest host on the program I'll be playing some of my favorite tracks since joining the team. Yes, it's a best of show!

Keeping it low key, mellow, and smooth tonight with some of my favorite indie and soul artists. Perfect music for relaxation and reflection.  

Tonight on Bridging the Gap we'll start with some pretty straightforawrd classic soul offerings and then move later on into some indie and psychadelic rock - all while inadvertantly paying tribute to a couple of recently passed musicians.

With everything that's going on with the world, sometimes music is a great place to take refuge. For tonight's show, we'll have a roundup of cool, laid back tracks to ease you into your Thursday night.

The name of the genre game tonight is indie folk rock, which is rather broad and includes music that have influences from country, blues, bluegrass, and americana. The music from tonight's show also works well as a running playlist. Trust me, I tested it out the other day and unexpectedly ran 3 miles.

 

Are looking for a show that starts with funk, ends with African Jazz, and stops off and a lot of weird, interesting genres along the way? If so, then you're in luck. Tonight's show features a bunch of great tracks with no particular rhyme or reason - just great music.

It's been a crazy week and things only seem to get crazier. When the going gets weird, I turn to music. Tonight, tons of psych-rock and dreamy sounding indie and alternative rock to channel this strange state of the world into sound. 

Most nights I plan to have just a little more music than I end up getting to play. This means that, usually, I'll have a couple of tracks at the end of the night that I don't get to fit into the show. Tonight, however, will be a showcase of all those little odds and ends that never make it into the broadcast.

Tons of new music on display tonight, and for the most part it'll be laidback, mellow tracks featuring world, indie, alternative and some experimental stuff along the way. Kick your feet up for this one.

Once more, we're flying blind tonight. Jumping all over the place (musically speaking) and seeing where the night takes us.

It's almost Valentine's Day! So grab you and your partner a drink (or maybe jut pour yourself two), cozy up to the radio and enjoy some indie tracks about love, loss and everything in between.

Starting here, and flowing with it til we get there. That's how tonight's show is gonna go.

Mellow, soulful and lowkey tracks tonight on Bridging the Gap -  featuring soul, indie, and a few world selections tucked away throughout the evening. 

I took a stroll down memory lane the other day and asked myself, "What was I listening to back in 2012?" The answer was, "Lots of Flume." I can't quite tell whether or not I'm embarrassed by that fact (it was 2012 and I just started working at KTUH) or proud that it was my first dive into non-top 40 music, but either way, it's the catalyst for tonight's indie-electro themed show.

Tonight we're sending some love out to our neighbors in the Pacific, featuring nothing but indie, alternative, and eclectic artists from Australia.

No real theme here  - just playing a bunch of newer tracks that capture a certain feeling of cool. Tons of indie, alternative and eclectic on display tonight.

Due to recent weather, tonight's show was curated around the feeling of snuggling up under the covers while listening to the rain outside. It's what I call "burrito weather" in which you basically roll yourself up into your blanket like a human burrito.

Lots of acoustic folk, indie, and soul - stuff that makes you want to snuggle a little closer and burrito a little tighter.

Last week I played my favorite songs I featured in the past year, so this week I figured it would be fun to focus on the best indie, alt and underground tracks that came on just in 2019. Rejoice in the likes of Ty Segall, Devendra Banhart, Cate Le Bon and more.

Tired of all the "end-of decade" or "best-of" musical recaps bombarding your music apps? Too bad! You're in for two hours of my favorite selections that I've played this year - my first year on Bridging the Gap.  Soul, indie, alternative, world music and a little bit of Americana will all be on display tonight.

If you're like me, then you might find that the holidays have a way of bringing along a lot of strange feelings with them. Whether its a change in the weather, family arguments or the eternal pressures of holiday shopping, why not have a playlist to affirm those end of the year existential woes?

Typical holiday music doesn't really do it for me. Unless, of course, we're talking about jazz. I don't think anything brings me more firmly into the holiday spirit than the opening keys of a piano solo or the introductory blare of a trumpet. Hopefully, you'll feel the same after tonight's show.

After taking a short break from our HPR + HIFF collaboration shows, we're back at it tonight with episode 4 featuring selections by local filmmaker, Bradley Tangonan. I was lucky enough to meet Brad at a recent media maker's summit, where he asked an insightful question at a rather mismatched panel (in my opinion) on place-based storytelling.

Happy Thanksgiving! Through a track list comprising mainly of jazz and soul (the kind of music I like to listen to when I'm digging in to my Turkey Day spread) and a few wild cards thrown in at the end, we'll be ringing in the holiday with no shortage of songs with titles that evoke thanks, gratitude and, most importantly, food.
