Counterfeit Week 1

Well first week into Counterfeit on SYN and things went very smoothly indeed. I had an awesome time and it was great to be back in the studio, particularly with my musical soulmate, the lovely Elle. It was very refreshing to finally do a radio show with someone who shares the same taste and passion in music as I do. So get ready for another 7 weeks of this guys, we hope you all enjoyed it.

Apart from some really good quality tunes, me and Elle introduced what will become a weekly segment called 'mix tape'. We are encorporating our love of receiving and making mix tapes into the show by having a mix tape theme each week and playing a few songs under that theme which would be included if such a tape was made. This week was approriately themed the Christmas mix. You would be surprised how many indie bands get into the Christmas spirit. We played Sufjan Stevens 'Come On! Let's Boogey to the Elf Dance', Death Cab For Cutie's 'Christmas (baby please come home) and The Raveonettes 'Christmas Song'. Here's some links to Christmas mix tapes on various blogs and if you guys have any suggestions for future mix tape themes and song please don't hesitate to post!!

Excellent round up, Amanda! The first show was such great fun - I especially liked your nu electro music I'm not so much familiar with. I'm so out of it :P

Looking forward to radio goodness tonight!
