Strange Week in Music: Ceremony and more featured 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.

Strange Week in Music || DJ Amber Crain Selection

Artist: Ceremony
Album: I Want to Kiss (Single)
Song: I Want to Kiss
RIYL: The Jesus & Mary Chain, Skywave, Ringo Deathstarr, A Place to Bury Strangers

Take the fuzzed out sounds of the Jesus & Mary Chain, blend it with the pop sensibilities of 60's girl groups, add a dash of Joy Division and wrap it all up in the guise of a love song and then you're picking up on what Ceremony is putting down. "I Want to Kiss" is the first single from the upcoming LP, Distance, slated for a fall release via Moon Sounds Records.
