Listening Post

One of the great mysteries of the universe is how Nic Harcourt Jason Bentley*, host of Morning Becomes Eclectic on L.A.'s KCRW, manages to instinctively book bands for his show who can sound incredible completely stripped down in-studio.

Here's a great example: Metric doing Gold Guns Girls.

*Obviously, it's been awhile since I've lived in L.A. or listened to Morning Becomes Eclectic as a complete radio show. My bad.

Former host. I love Metric and they sound awesome!

Maybe he makes a point of hearing the band live before ever tendering an invitation.

And Metric, as you probably know, tours a hell of a lot.

(And: Boy, that Emily!)

Nic Harcourt doesn't do MBE anymore. Jason Bentley is the current host.

Damn. Obviously it's been a long time since I've lived in L.A. So Bentley's the host now?

Guess that means he's not doing Metropolis anymore -- which would be a real shame.
