From the smashing intro to the playfully postmodern background collage (shifting eyes! whistling noses! disembodied voices!) to the smooth-as-silk mechanics of the media stream, this visually sumptuous L.A.-based online radio station is a procrastinating college student’s dream come true. Listeners with Real or Windows Media players can proceed directly to a healthy alt-lite mix (read: Beck ‘n’ Moby ‘n’ such) while watching the DJ take requests in the chat room or (toward the end of a shift) become giddy with fatigue. Finally, a high-concept music site that manages to achieve style without abusing substance (not that they’re admitting anything).
