indie

No convoluted, complicated themes this evening. Instead, we'll hear some upbeat music to put a smile on your face - plain and simple. Expect alternative, vintage soul, world music and more.

Serving up some upbeat post-punk and indie tonight, along with a smattering of mellow-ish tracks to cut the intensity. Expect the likes of Idles, Ty Segall, Automatic, Deerhoof and more.

Tonight's show is a playlist of Christmas songs that are familiar, but the versions and covers might not be. It's a mostly folky-indie-soulful kind of Christmas playlist. Aloha Kalikimaka iā ʻoukou!

No theme this evening - just a selection of song to chill out, calm down and relax to. Indie world, folk and even a little bit of soul on display tonight.

Earlier this week, dj mr. nick took a crack at NPR's recently released top 100 track list for 2020. Having looked at the list myself, I thought it would be fun to pick my favorite and add a few of my own.

As we get into December, we're all getting ready to bid a fine farewell to a decidedly lame year. But, even in the worsts of times we still have music to lean on - so in the spirit of the hugely popular Spotify Wrapped playlists we've been seeing all over social media, tonight I'll be playing some heavy hitters that I've played over the last year of Bridging the Gap.

Sometimes you want music that raises your heartbeat, gets you amped for the night ahead, and generally brings some adrenaline to the table. Conversely, sometimes you just want to relax and let the music wash over you. Tonight with be the latter kind of show. Indie offerings ranging from soul, rock, jazz and everything in-between.

Sometimes that producer is just as important as the talent. Tonight, we'll be doing a deep dive on Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse - one of the most prolific alternative producers over the past 15 years. He's had a hand in releases big and small, and has also seen plenty of success as a musician in his own right. 

In a slight departure of our typical oevre, we're going to be going pretty heavy this evening. Punk, post-punk, and even some stoner and doom metal to channel some cathartic aggression in the run-up to Halloween. If you don't like loud music, maybe skip this one.

For this very pledge centric show, we'll be running with a lot of really great indie - most of it relatively new. In particular, we'll be putting a lot of emerging female artists from Australia. Starts mellow and ends with a kick - stick with it. If you have the means to support the station during our drive - call (888) 536-4700 or make a donation on our website.

Tonight's outing feature's a very laidback offering of relatively new indie with a few eclectic throwbacks tossed in for good measure. We'll close out with a particularly strong track by Fiona Apple from her most recent album - with plenty of great music before that.

We've got a harvest moon on our hands, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to play some easygoing, laid back tracks perfect for taking in an evening of lunar phenomena. Underground soul, indie and some world music is on display tonight.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap we'll start with some pretty straightforward classic soul offerings and then move later on into some indie and psychedelic rock.

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 straightforward classic soul offerings and then move later on into some indie and psychedelic 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.
