When a friend suggested I play more post-punk bands, I was happy to oblige. I went through a huge post-punk phase in college, devouring everything from Wire to Echo and the Bunnymen, so it wasn’t difficult to come up with some tasty selections. I obviously went for the more obscure. I hope you dig them, Kansas Barker.
I also felt compelled to finally offer opinions on Radiohead and Animal Collective, two heavy hitters in one episode! Enjoy.
