J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 29th September 2010

Update: The podcast from this week came out, well, odd. Instead of my show, it was a repeated shimmering music sound effect and then a female DJ (possibly the one on before me?) saying our station ID. And just those things looped over and over for two hours. I didn't notice this until this weekend - I don't listen to my own shows afterward. I guess I need to change that. So, sadly, this week's show is lost. You can still read the playlist below. I'm perplexed. Sorry, y'all.

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. A whole clutch of great new music tonight and some awesome classics, as always. I had a great time tonight with some giveaways - tickets to see the awesome Dead Confederate tomorrow night, Thursday, September 30th, at the Cat's Cradle in Carborro and some copies of their new 7" single for "Giving It All Away." Thanks to the band for providing me with such great schwag and congrats to our winners.

A heads up and reminder: Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands will be live on the show next week as they prepare for their upcoming shows at the Broach Theatre here in Greensboro. Ought to be an enjoyable show, so make sure you tune in.

Now, while it rains and it pours, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 29th September 2010 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Gang of Four - "Never Pay for the Farm" [so this is really far ahead of schedule, but gang of four's first new album in 16 years, content, is dropping in late january of next year. they leaked this song and, really, it's quite good. let's hope they can pull something similar to what mission of burma has been doing in terms of quality reunion output.]
the Sex Pistols - "Holidays in the Sun" [from nevermind the bollocks, here's the sex pistols. i hadn't pulled out this album in quite awhile, mostly because, despite loving it, it belongs to a different era of my life. but i did slip it on in the car the other day and was reminded by how great this opening track is - so there you go.]
Burnt Ones - "Gonna Listen to T. Rex (All Night Long)" [from black tongues, golden teeth. i really enjoy this song - who doesn't enjoy a paeaen to t. rex?]
Liz Phair - "Big Tall Man" [from whitechocolatespaceegg. this song got stuck in my head the other day as well and it ranks among my favorite phair songs.]
Portugal. The Man - "The Dead Dog" [from american ghetto. so, portugal the man is going out on tour and aquarium drunkard is presenting the whole shebang. they'll be in this neck of the woods on saturday, october 16th at the orange peel in asheville. get on it.]
Aztec Camera - "Get Outta London" [from stray, my favorite aztec camera album. i hadn't thought of this record in awhile, but this song swam up into my head this week (as a lot of the classics i play do) and seemed destined to be played. it was.]
Wavves - "King of the Beach" [the title track from their latest. if you missed the WQFS sponsored free show last night at guilford college, well, you missed it. a great show, great music, great free food and just greatness all around.]
Ben Folds Five - "Jackson Cannery" (original 7" version) [from naked baby photos and by request from twitter. i listened to the interesting interview with ben folds and nick hornby on their new collaborative project - hornby writes the lyrics, folds the music - on npr this morning. i'm intrigued enough to maybe want to listen to new ben folds for the first time in years.]
Dead Confederate - "Giving It All Away" [from the new album sugar. they'll be at the cat's cradle in carborro, north carolina on thursday, september 30th. this is where i gave away my first pair of tickets to the show. exciting to give stuff away.]
Brute - "Adirondacks" [from co-balt. brute is the collaborative project of widespread panic and vic chesnutt. they put out two albums under this name and i just snagged this one at the used store this week for a dollar. best dollar i've spent in a long time. a great album.]
Gary Wilson - "In the Night" [from the forthcoming electric endicott. so, the incredibly mysterious and bizarre gary wilson is back. he's going to be appearing on late night with jimmy fallon playing with the roots on wednesday, october 27th and that's going to be a seriously weird night, no doubt. i dig this song, though.]
the Replacements - "Achin' to Be" [from don't tell a soul. i was excited about the 'mats for two reasons recently. one, my buddy matt is reigniting the skyway after a bit of a hiatus. this was the community i first glommed onto in my teenage years when i knew no one who knew the 'mats. second, via his latest email, i learned about color me obsessed, a documentary about the 'mats that is being finished up for dvd release soon. check out the website and interviews. very exciting.]
Cold Water Shave - "Black Coffee" [josh from cold water shave was nice enough to send me these rough mixes of the band's recent recordings with snüzz. they sound excellent and i can't wait to hear more. the band is playing this saturday at the flatiron here in greensboro.]
Callers - "Heartbeat" [a cover of the classic by wire. this landed in my inbox last week and it's a pretty intriguing cover to say the least. wonder if the band's original material is as good? we'll see.]
Superchunk - "Digging for Something" [from majesty shredding. love this record. love this song. love this band.]
Adam Thorn and the Top Buttons - "Where's the Freedom?" [the title track from his last album. adam's got a new record due out later this year, quite different from this album, but adam's an excellent chameleon if nothing else and i can't wait to hear it.]
the Walkmen - "Victory" [from lisbon, their excellent new record that is truly one of the best minimalist rock records i've heard in awhile.]
Versus - "Into Blue" [from their album on the ones and threes. great rock album. i'm enjoying every track i play off of this thing.]
Dead Confederate - "Start Me Laughing" [from their previous album, wrecking ball. slipped this on before giving away the other pair of tickets to their show tomorrow night. it'll be a loud, loud, raucous good time.]
Madeline - "I Waited All Day" [from the tour EP. madeline is playing a house show in raleigh at 1004 parker street. it's open to the public and she'll be playing there on sunday, october 10th at 8pm and again at 9:30pm. check her out.]
Megafaun - "Carolina Days" [from the heretofore EP. i may ease off on playing this EP for a little while - i've been pushing it so heavily for so long. that or i'll take one more week to play the awesome twelve minute "comprovisation" song. brilliant stuff.]
Matthew Sweet - "Faith In You" [from in reverse, sweet's stylistic homage to the wall of sound. it shows up in a lot of the earlier songs on the record, but you can't resists a good ol' fashioned barn burner like this from sweet.]
Steve Wynn and Miracle 3 - "Consider the Source" [from the forthcoming northern aggression. you won't hear more of this for a bit since the album doesn't drop until late november, but it's good, people. seriously.]
J. Tillman - "Albequerque" [from an aquarium drunkard exclusive - j. tillman of fleet foxes recorded a song by song cover of neil young's tonight's the night. it got a blisteringly divisive set of comments over at the AD blog, but i like it.]
Television - "Call Mr. Lee" [from their self-titled reunion record from 1992. not the band's finest moment - i think the production is a bit weak and dated - but a solid set of songs that make it pretty essential for dedicated fans of the band.]
Son Volt - "No More Parades" [from straightaways. i love this album and will defend its honor forever. seriously.]

That'll do it for this week. Don't forget that Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands will be up on the show next week for what will undoubtedly be a great time. So until then, Go Panthers! (please?), and take care.
