We’re rooting for the sun these days, figuratively and literally, but somehow, it keeps evading us. What day is it? Will you please tell me? Oh, that’s right, it’s Wednesday and Bubble Wrap just did their show.  This is where we tell you what we played.  Among this week’s discoveries: CZ, Will Butler, Mode, As The Flowers Fall, and Simon Groß.

It’s that time of the year when people trot out their best of lists, and we’re no exception to the rule.

The goal of this week’s Bubble Wrap show was relaxation and joy. The new music was thin so we went with old stuff, for the most part.

You will see.  The new single is “Funktropolis.” Find it under Funk at your favorite record emporium.
