THE BIG BEAT Kicks out the Jams from Dinosaur Jr, Preoccupations, Beach Slang, Dirty Projectors, and More

Can’t get enough that new Beach Slang record. No way. They’re back for more, and so is James Blake. His album The Colour in Anything isn’t brand new (released in early May) but he’s playing the Cadillac Palace Theatre on Sunday night along with Moses Sumney, so we paired ’em up towards the end of the program and gave the show a nice plug. Not because we’re officially associated with it (we’re not), but because we thought our audience would dig the records and the show as well. Yup, THE BIG BEAT is here to serve you.
