J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 11th August 2010

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands have rescheduled their appearance on the show until October, but their CD release show is still this Friday, so make sure that you go check it out. I look forward to having them on the show later this fall.

Going to make this short and sweet tonight. A great show, but I'm tired. Onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 11th August 2010 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Drive-by Truckers - "Birthday Boy" [from the big to-do. one of my favorite songs of 2010 and, really, i had put a personal moratorium on playing anything off this album for awhile, but i got sidetracked in conversation and had to grab something good. so, there you go.]
Daisy Chainsaw - "Love Your Money" [from eleventeen. another something i'd played recently enough to put a delay on playing it again, but conversations. thanks, john hatch.]
the Roots - "Dear God 2.0" [from how i got over. their album is one of my favorites of this year, no question.]
Illicitizen - "Second Best" [from their self-titled album. again, a total accidental play, but it's a great song, so more exposure for this charlotte band is not a bad thing. plus saying their name on the show is fun.]
the Black Keys - "Everlasting Light" [from brothers. now we're on track and this song is probably bound for my best singles of '10 show. so good.]
the Velvet Crush - "My Blank Pages" [from teenage symphonies to god. aside from the album title's brian wilson reference, this album is chock full of classicist goodness. a seminal album in power pop.]
Wavves - "King of the Beach" [the title track from their latest. i had a discussion last week with one of caleb caudle's bayonets (sam? chad? can't remember which) about this album and we both decided that we like it more than the self-titled. yeah, i still think that.]
Wilco - "I'm the Man Who Loves You" [from yankee hotel foxtrot. a friend who was in town played "i am trying to break your heart" on the jukebox at NYP the other night, so i was inspired, what can i say?]
Stornoway - "Chasing Birds" [from beachcomber's windowsill. one of my favorite albums of this year, still.]
Fountains of Wayne - "Hackensack" [from welcome interstate managers. i know i say this every time i play this song of late, but if you haven't heard/seen katy perry's cover of it from her unplugged performance, it's really quite good.]
Wild Nothing - "Your Rabbit Feet" [from gemini. this is bound for my best singles show as well. seriously, this band is awesome.]
the Replacements - "I'll Buy" [by request. from tim. from long time listener frank. i still remember one of the first convos i had with him. he called to request the 'mats and i said "hey, anytime you request the replacements, i'll play them." he has made liberal use of that promise as i hoped he would.]
Corin Tucker - "Doubt" [from the forthcoming 1,000 years. it's seemed like ages since sleater-kinney released their swan song album. so it's nice to hear the main voice of the band back. i'm salivating for the full length.]
X - "Los Angeles" [the title track from their debut. when i go back and listen to songs like this, it just comes upon me all again what an amazing band they were/are, especially in the vocals department. love hearing john and exene together.]
Lazerbeak - "Salt and Sea" [from legend recognize legend. this landed in my lap this week: music from a producer in the doomtree family who has worked on stuff by p.o.s. and dessa. pretty righteous song, honestly.]
Haiz Rail - "(Midnight) Angel of Sin" [by request from DJ moose from their album hang on to the rails and ride. moose and QPC were heading over to see haiz rail open for cinderella at the millenium center in winston-salem and raise some mayhem. so, for them, some metal.]
Arcade Fire - "Ready to Start" [from the suburbs. congratulations to the band and to merge records for their first billboard #1 album. good music triumphs.]
that dog. - "She Doesn't Know How" [from totally crushed out. got some awesome responses on twitter about this song. i love that dog and i will probably rave about them until my dying days.]
Versus - "Scientists" [from on the ones and threes. great new album from this band, also out on merge, we'll be hearing a lot more.]
Twilight Singers - "Teenage Wristband" [from blackberry belle. i love this set. my crown jewel of the night in terms of how the songs run together.]
Jens Lekman - "The End of the World is Bigger Than Love" [a new single released last week. new music from jens. it's been three years since his last album, so this released song is good. i'm digging it.]
the Beta Band - "Dry the Rain" [from the three EPs. a great song used perfectly in a great film that i haven't watched in awhile. need to remedy that.]
Megafaun - "Carolina Days" [from heretofore. their new EP is so good that it makes me ache. can't wait for it to drop.]
Oakley Hall - "Second Guessing" [the title track from their second album. man, speaking of bands that need to release new music, oakley hall, where are you at?]
Antony and the Johnsons - "Thank You For Your Love" [the title track from his new EP which is, itself, a teaser for his forthcoming album. he does a cover of dylan's "pressing on" on this EP which i can't wait to hear. antony, will you please do an album of dyaln covers already? they're always so good.]
Futurebirds - "Ski Chalet" [from hampton's lullabye. great athens rock and roll. they're hopefully going to be playing a show in greensboro in november. stay tuned.]
Liz Phair - "Strange Loop" [from exile in guyville. ah, liz. i still love you, even if i don't really stick up for anything past your third album. this song is too brilliant. you get a pass.]
Ron Wood - "Mystifies Me" [from i've got my own record to make. learned of this song through son volt's cover, but the original is fantastic as well. a good finish to the show.]

That'll do it for this week. Next week will be my birthday show. My birthday is the following Saturday, but this'll be the official radio show extravaganza. Tune in for awesomeness. Until then, take care.
