Strange Week in Music  
on the Strangeways Radio Blog

When The Sun Hits is now contributing to a weekly blog feature on the Strangeways Radio blog called Strange Week in Music. The full article can be found on the Strangeways blog; WTSH cross posts it only partially, with a link to the full article provided. Strange Week in Music gives each Strangeways DJ an opportunity to highlight one track that is related to his/her show that week; the article will include information, links, images, a video/stream of the tracks and where they can be purchased. You can think of it as Strangeways' Week at a Glance.

If you are new to Strangeways Radio, or are curious about other station shows aside from WTSH, this weekly feature on the Strangeways blog will be the perfect introduction. Below is WTSH's latest contribution.

Brooklyn-based Au Revoir Simone is comprised of the trio Heather D'Angelo, Erika Forster, and Annie Hart. Taking their name from a minor character in the Tim Burton comedy Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, the synth-centric group formed in 2003, releasing 3 critically acclaimed LPs along the way before taking a temporary hiatus. Move in Spectrums is their fourth album, co-produced by the trio and Jorge Elbrecht of Violens and issued on legendary producer Richard Gottehrer's Instant Records label. Rich in expertly crafted pop melodies, perfect synth hooks and lush vocals, Move in Spectrums is an absolute essential of 2013...
