Sober Rocket Man

Well, your ol’ pal Pip is back with a few more tracks to share with you. I think you’ll dig these if you’re into low-key, chill to mid-level upbeat action, with smoke-filled production. That sound good? Let’s go..


Miami Horror – Sober (Childish Gambino Cover)


I absolutely love that Childish Gambino song, and I love me some Miami Horror (“Sometimes” is my jam) and together.. wow! Check out this cover. This is up there as my top track of the week, along with the final one in this list…

Lostboycrow – Powers

Talkin’ to your body like we got too much to say…. This sexy electric song is just so smooth.. If you’re into The Neighbourhood, like I am, you’ll dig this track.

Harrison Brome – Pools

The music video is NSFW, but still check it out of course. This kid from Vancouver, Canada isn’t even 20 years old yet and he’s already put out something this good. Keep an eye out for more greatness.

Mr Little Jeans – Waking Up

We’ve not heard new music from Mr Little Jeans aka Monica Birkenes all year long, but now we’ve got a new track that is just perfect.

Neon Indian – Slumlord

The second single released track off of Neon Indian’s upcoming album “VEGA INTL. Night School” released October 16th of this year. Also check out “Annie” if you like this one.

Astronauts, etc & Toro Y Moi – Rocket Man

“Nice and stonery” is how Neesh described this Elton John cover when I played it on my show Wednesday night. Spot on. It’s everything.

Every Friday, we’re going through and checking out the newest music to share with all of you on the station. Sometimes, in the process of gathering the newest jams, we stumble across a few others that aren’t brand new. Below are some awesome tracks, some brand new, some fairly new, some pretty new, but all badass. There are many more new additions to Radio Xenu’s AutoDJ rotation. Check us out and hear for yourself as we’re heavily featuring the brand new music in rotation.


Octobers “Misfits”
Indie, Alternative, Rock.
Kanloops, British Columbia, Canada



Octobers describe “Misfits” as “An indie-pop-rock mixture of hooky guitars, catchy melodies, and heartfelt lyrics.” Sounds about right. This track “Misfits” was released along with 3 others a few weeks back on the Misfits EP.

Thanks to Octobers for reciprocating the love today with a post on their Facebook page! Everyone give them a like.

It’s the middle of the week and you know what that means.. The Neeshcast is on air tonight 7-11 central! But before Neesh shares some dope tunes with you tonight, we’ve got some of our own music to share with you..including 2 new tracks, one from Wavves and one from CHVRCHES..

First up, from the 619, Wavves with “Heavy Metal Detox”

I love how Wavves asked if you’d want to hear new music today…

And of course everyone replied with a resounding…

And here it is. The end reminds me of someone spinning the big wheel on Wheel Of Fortune. And then I thought I meant Price Is Right, but that thing beeps. I mean, before it used to beep. Did it always beep? Maybe I meant Wheel Of Fortune after all. Check out Wavves’ new song “Heavy Metal Detox”..

Introducing next.. from Glasgow, with the second track to come from their new album, Every Open Eye, out 25 September – CHVRCHES with “Never Ending Circles”

And here are some other great tracks that you can hear in rotation on Radio Xenu. Grab the TuneIn App & listen on the go or click the Listen link on the top of our website!
