Strange Week in Music || Sept 4 || on the Strangeways Radio blog. Feat. DIIV and more.

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.

Artist: DIIV
Album: Oshin
Song: Doused
RIYL: Beach Fossils, Echo & the Bunnymen, Modern English
Where to Buy: Captured Tracks

DIIV (pronounced “dive”) is an atmospheric and autumnally-charged Brooklyn four-piece fronted by Z. Cole Smith. DIIV craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence. Oshin is DIIV’s debut LP on Captured Tracks.
