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 Vampire Weekend’s “Diane Young,” the lead single from the band's highly acclaimed third album, Modern Vampires of the City. The song sees the New York band performing their collegiate rock a Buddy Holly strut and matching their trademark wordplay with warped vocals, imbuing the song both an old-school, surf-rock rock shuffle and an otherwordly feel.
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.
