Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the district. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Everyday I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.


Strange spellings always catch my attention. Which is why I’m listening to Nyteowl today. I really dig this so far. It’s like the best kind of elevator music (which is a good thing). I’m also really digging the vaporwave-esque music video. Vaporwave is still a thing right? Or was it never a thing? I don’t really know. Oooh. Now there are vocals. I’m liking this even more. This is very soothing. I needed this today. Thank you Nyteowl.

You can see Nyteowl tonight at DC9.
