Amoeba has entered into a partnership with L.A.’s Moheak Radio to provide the Amoeba Song of the Week every week for a recorded segment to air on Moheak’s online radio station.
This week it’s Rilo Kiley's "It’ll Get You There." The L.A.-based band was an underground favorite for much of the early 2000s, led by charismatic the charsimatic Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett, both child-stars-turned-musicians. Though now defunct, their recently released Rkives corrals fan favorites not found on their albums, including standout “It’ll Get You There,” fully displaying the power of Lewis’ voice over a simple-yet-effective four-chord arrangement and explosive performance by the band. Sample or download the song here, and check out the rest of their album Rkives on CD, LP (out 4/30) or download.
A bit about Amoeba’s Song of the Week: Every week we’ll provide a song hand-selected by our own staff to Moheak Radio for a recorded segment that will run four times a day (at around 8 a.m., 1 p.m., 5:45 p.m. and once overnight). Besides hearing what our expert staff is into, you’ll get the chance to win prizes from Amoeba Music. The giveaways will happen once a week with announcements at least once every four hours leading up to the giveaway, which will take place on Moheak’s Facebook page. Check it out, support local/online radio and win some prizes along the way.
