J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 18th February 2009 Show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - "Streetlights" [from their new self-titled album. this was actually a request of caleb caudle who was there setting up as we started the show. jason and the unit will be at the lincoln theatre in raleigh this friday night. and so will i. oh, yeah.]
Suede - "Animal Nitrate" [from their self-titled debut. sleazy glam. gotta love it.]
Marc Olson and Gary Louris - "Saturday Morning on Sunday Street" [from ready for the flood. the chorus of this song is everything that is great about when these two guys sing together.]
the Soft Boys - "I Wanna Destroy You" [from underwater moonlight. robyn hitchcock and the venus 3 have a new record out, goodnight oslo, so i thought i'd throw on some old hitchcock in lieu of anything new.]

[Here's where the interview and live songs with Caleb Caudle and Daniel Allen took place. We talked about their history in music, putting the band together, recording the new album and a few other things. The live songs were a real treat - check them out below.]

Caleb Caudle with Daniel Allen - "Don't Let Me Go" (live in studio) [an unreleased new song. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle with Daniel Allen - "Our Heaven" (live in studio) [a track from the new album, stay on. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle with Daniel Allen - "Lost in the Wind" (live in studio) [another track from the new album. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle and the Bayonets - "When the Moment Comes" [from the new album.]
Blur - "Beetlebum" [from their self-titled album. there was a time where i really didn't know what to do with this record. now, it's one of my favorite blur albums.]
the Henry Clay People - "End of an Empire" (live) [from the sirius radio aquarium drunkard sessions - check 'em out here. the henry clay people will be opening for the airborne toxic event at local 506 in chapel hill on friday, march 13th.]
Paul Westerberg - "Men Without Ties" [originally a b-side, it is available on the besterberg best of collection. a favorite of mine.]
the Damnwells - "Bastard of Midnight" [from one last century. oh, man! i do so love the damnwells and their new album is out AND available for free! it's a good record. if you're a fan of the damnwells, well, you will be happy.]
Evidence - "The Layover" [the title track from his new EP. yes, this is evidence of dilated peoples. not the one of the two MCs from that group that i expected to hear a solo album from first, for sure.]
Supergrass - "Late in the Day" [from in it for the money. i'm a fan of supergrass and i have enjoyed all their albums in one way or another, but this one is still the tops for me. from front to back it's just a brilliantly structured raucous rock record. and this ballad is, well, perfect.]
the Joy Formidable - "The Greatest Light is the Greatest Shade" [from their new album a balloon called moaning which also, by the way is available online for free. what is it with bands giving away great albums?]
Antony and the Johnsons - "Kiss My Name" [from the crying light. one of the more upbeat (in terms of having percussion) on the new album. good stuff.]
Archie Bronson Outfit - "Cherry Lips" [from derdang derdang. i hadn't heard of these guys until they were mentioned in an AV club inventory earlier this week and i got to see this video. i downloaded the album immediately.]
Fugazi - "Five Corporations" [from end hits. i've seen more references to fugazi this week by friends of mine than i've seen in several years. so i thought i'd buy into the apparent collective fanhood this week.]
the Pains of Being Pure at Heart - "Come Saturday" [another great song from their self-titled debut. spin. this. record.]
the Heartless Bastards - "Early in the Morning" [from their latest, the mountain. we'll be hearing more.]
the Flaming Lips - "Kim's Watermelon Gun" [from probably my favorite flaming lips record, clouds taste metallic. i'm a big fan of that period of about three albums where the lips' early-years noise freak-out calmed down enough to get tuneful, but before the soft bulletin pretty much changed them for the rest of eternity.]
Lake Inferior - "How the Wars are Won" [from their self-titled EP. i'm thinking we need to have these guys down on the show sometime. great NC music.]
Jim Avett and Family - "Shall We Gather at the River" [from the self-titled record. jim will be playing at the green burro next thursday, february 26th, along with bruce piephoff. we might have an interview with them both on the show next week. stay tuned.]
Beirut - "La Llorna" [from the march of the zapotec EP. something about conden recording a mexican funeral band? we'll see.]
Jim White - "Counting Numbers in the Air" [from the a funny little cross to bear live EP. you can read my review here. great music.]
Telekinesis - "Coast of Carolina" [from their forthcoming self-titled record. power pop is alive and well in 2009.]

That'll do it for this week. Make sure you tune in next week for more goodness - I'll see you at a show somewhere this weekend and until next time, Go Heels! and take care.
