City Times Sound’s first week of new programming continues with the debut episode of “Mood Ring,” which airs today at 5 and 9 p.m. Listen live on KSDS 88.3 HD-2, or online.

Host Jakob McWhinney digs up great local music that has some sugar, and some edge, and serves it shaken, with the goal of keeping listeners asking themselves “wait…this artist is from San Diego?”

From New Mexico to Three Mile Pilot to Mannequin, “Mood Ring” heaps on the indie rock, pop, post-punk, -waves, -gazes, and whatever new nonsense suffixes the fever dream hive brain of the internet coughs up in the coming years.
