#4 Dream Wife
We’ve reached #4 in the countdown of my 30-favorite songs of 2018 and that brings-us to punk rock & pop band, Dream Wife. When the year began these three young women had moved from playing parties to opening for The Vaccines, Sunflower Bean, The Kills, and Garbage. By the second half of 2018 they were headlining their own shows.
I saw them live in Cambridge last Spring and I was blown-away. Their self-titled debut LP came out in January and it’s one of my favorites. Have a listen to “Hey Heartbreaker.” It’s #4 on the Lights-Camera-30 countdown.

Over on the Anniversary-30 countdown we have a band that became a go-to artist for me in my college radio days on 90.7 WKKL. I’m talking about the Pixies. This legendary Boston act released their debut LP, “Surfer Rosa” 30-years-ago in 1988.
I’m going with one of my favorite songs off the record… A tune co-written and sung by bassist, Kim Deal. It’s called “Gigantic” and it’s just been added to the Anniversary-30 playlist. Happy Listening! -Kristen
