Glass Animals were in town last week playing a show in the First Avenue mainroom, touring in support of their debut album Zaba (a title which gets its inspiration from the William Steig book The Zabajaba Jungle).

Dave Bayley and Joe Seaward of the band stopped by The Current on their visit to take over our airwaves and to play songs by some of their favorite artists. They visited with Jade and discussed some of the chosen artists as well — from recently seeing Tame Impala perform, to Father John Misty's 'Michael Jackson-esque' dance moves (going so far as to describe him as having 'snake hips'), to fellow Oxonians, Radiohead.

Playlist

Beyoncé — "Crazy in Love"
Tame Impala — "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards"
Outkast — "Ms. Jackson"
Father John Misty — "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings"
Bill Withers — "Lonely Town Lonely Street"
Radiohead — "Reckoner"
Glass Animals — "Hazey"
