Thank You, Sean, for Playing Valet at 5 am on KEXP Today

Posted by on Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 12:39 PM

I awoke randomly this morning at 5, and as is my wont when this sort of thing happens, I turned on the radio to KEXP. There I heard the ghostly emanations of “My Volcano” by Valet (Portland musician Honey Owens, also in Miracles Club). I was shocked, to say the most. You just don’t hear much Valet on the airwaves, especially the lost 2007 classic Blood Is Clean, so this was a nice omen for today.

Thank you, graveyard-shift DJ Sean (he’s a Canadian transplant whose last name is top secret) for playing such great, obscure music at those ungodly hours (well, all hours are ungodly, but you know what I mean), including Eyeless in Gaza. Been a minute since I’ve heard them on the old box. Sean: I’ll be keeping tabs on your sets from here on out, insomnia willing.

Aw, he spells it "honoured." Seriously, good show, good DJ. I also listen around 5:30am or so.
