J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 2nd December 2009

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. We really are getting down to the wire on this year's best-of sets. In two weeks, on Wednesday, December 16th, it'll be the annual Best Singles show, with the best single songs of the year that you heard on the show. Then, two weeks after that, on Wednesday, December 30th, it's the 8th annual J's Indie/Rock Top 25 Albums of the Year. It'll be an awesome holiday season around these parts for just that reason.

Tonight I was joined in studio by 2/5ths of the members of Lake Inferior for a fun chat. They're super nice guys and you should absolutely go pick up their new EP, Pegasaur, which is available on vinyl with a free digital download to boot. Only 420 copies available, so get on yours. It's well worth it.

Now, without further ado, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 2nd December 2009 Show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Lucero - "The Devil and Maggie Chascarillo" [from 1372 overton park. this is my favorite song off the record so far and one hell of a rambunctious single. i guess i need to go see lucero live at some point.]
Dinosaur Jr. - "Over It" [from farm. you might just hear this pop up again in two weeks. it is a great video and an awesome song to boot. viva la reunion albums.]
El-P - "Drive" [from i'll sleep when you're dead, one of this week's decade picks over at aquarium drunkard. check out my write-up here. this album was on my best-of list back in 2007, but its power has only grown with me over time.]
Sleater-Kinney - "Entertain" [from the woods. this was my other decade write-up for the week. check it out here. another album that has only gotten more righteous with age. man, i miss these ladies.]
Tom Waits - "Goin' Out West" (live) [from the new glitter and doom live album that is out. if you missed out on either of his tours in the past couple of years, this is a great insight into what you missed. good stuff.]
Modest Mouse - "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes" [by request. from the moon and antarctica. caller wanted to hear something from lonesome crowded west, but this was as old as i could find that hadn't walked out. ah, thievery.]

[Here came my interview with Nasir and Logan of Lake Inferior. They were kind enough to come down and talk about the band, its origins, influences, are they more musicians or music geeks and their new EP, Pegasaur. Super nice guys and a great live show that we will, hopefully, turn into some Greensboro shows one of these days. I'm on a mission to make it happen.]

Lake Inferior - "Spiders" [from their self-titled EP from earlier this year. without a doubt the song that grabbed my ear the first time i heard it and has led to my sincere love for this band. probably destined to be heard again in two weeks as well. ah, well.]
Lake Inferior - "Addressing Parents" [from the new Pegasaur EP. the new EP chases some different themes musically and is a pretty great listen.]
Lake Inferior - "Gepeddo" [also from pegasaur. another really fantastic song. go get your copy so you can enjoy it on vinyl.]
St. Vincent - "Save Me From What I Want" [from actor. how far up the top 25 ladder will this end up? i would've thought it a shoe-in for top 5 earlier this year, but now i'm not sure. still on the list though.]
Invisible - "Battle Rap: Spider vs. Lightning" [from irresponsibly electric, the 'rock' record from one of greensboro's most truly original and unique bands. they're playing this friday night at the kress building on elm street as part of first fridays with the arts. 7pm show time. go see them after you see me play at 6pm at the corner of elm and mlk for the first friday indie-market.]
the Raveonettes - "Bang!" [from in and out of control. there's a whole litany of great singles off of this record. seriously. geez.]
Califone - "Polish Girls" [from the gorgeous all my friends are funeral singers. speaking of a sleeper hit bound for the top 25. can califone not make beautiful music?]
Dungen - "Panda" [from ta det lungt. eric, a friend of lake inferior's who came up with them, selected this from the stacks and it is some gorgeous stuff. really intriguing and actually fit in with some other things that popped up this evening.]
Guadalcanal Diary - "Watusi Rodeo" [from walking in the shadow of the big man. one of our newer contributors at drunkard, j. kress, threw up a great post about this band last week and it's well worth reading.]
Bombadil - "Sad Birthday" [from tarpits and canyonlands, the awesome new album from durham, north carolina's bombadil. can i say enough good things about bombadil? answer: no.]
Megafaun - "Gather, Form and Fly" [the title track from their latest. more amazing north carolina music. this has been an amazing year for just plain beautiful music and this is a great example.]
Teenage Fanclub - "Sparky's Dream" [from grand prix. because you really can't go too long without hearing this song. this was my exposure to teenage fanclub, lo those years ago, and i'll never forget it. ever.]
Sonic Youth - "Disconnection Notice" [from murray street, another of the decade albums from this week. certainly my favorite sonic youth record of the decade. go read the write-up and see if you agree.]
Panda Bear - "Comfy in Nautica" [from person pitch. i'll admit to being unsure what to make of animal collective at times, so i definitely stayed away from this solo project from one of their main members. i still don't know if i get it, but it's interesting and i know people believe it to be one of the best of the decade, otherwise marty wouldn't have written about it. so there you go.]
Iron and Wine - "Promise What You Will" [from the creek drank the cradle. yet another of this week's decade albums. i, personally, would've gone with the woman king EP, but you can put up an argument for any of their works, really.]
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Matt Sweeny - "My Home is the Sea" [from the superwolf album. another honestly moment: i remember when this came out, but paid it no attention, but did note that people loved it. listened to this song for the first time tonight. oh, man. what was i thinking?]
Happy End - "Haru Ranman" [one of our other newest contributors at drunkard, brendan mcgrath, posted about this band over at his blog, the rising storm. japanese classic country rock. what more could you ask for? these songs are seriously good, too. man.]

That'll do it for this week. Next week will have me dabbling in some Christmas music (because I can and, well, because there won't be any other time) as well as the usual goodness, so make sure you tune in and that you drop by First Friday Indie-Market at the corner of Elm Street and MLK this Friday night at 6pm for me playing guitar. Why not? Until then, Go Panthers! Go Heels!, and take care.
