J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 16th February 2011

Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. I apologize for the lack of show last week. A real bummer considering Josh and Derrick of The Grand Old Uproar came by and laid down an awesome set of live songs and a great interview. I hate that the recording wasn't possible. Sadly, that's how it goes.

But thankfully, everything was all good this week as Caleb Caudle stopped by to talk about his band, Caleb Caudle and the Bayonets, and their upcoming show at the Green Bean this Saturday, February 19th. He played some live songs and talked for a bit. Great stuff all around. See below for details.

Now, while it's getting good, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 16th February 2011 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Arcade Fire - "Ready to Start" [from the suburbs. i couldn't help myself and had to open with something off the winner of the album of the year grammy this past weekend. big ups to arcade fire and merge records for an awesome, unexpected victory.]
Fugazi - "Foreman's Dog" [from end hits. just got to thinking the other day how this fall will be ten years since the final fugazi album was released. retrospective time, i believe.]
Drive-by Truckers - "Everybody Needs Love" [from go-go boots, the new album which just dropped yesterday. we'll be hearing a lot more.]
Superchunk - "The Question is How Fast" [from on the mouth. since we opened with a merge records band, i figured we'd close with a merge band.]

[Here's where Caleb Caudle and I began talking. We discussed the upcoming show at the Green Bean, their new West Salem Session digital EP which goes live on Saturday, working with Caitlin Cary, adding new members to the band and Caleb graced us with three, unreleased songs played live. Check 'em out below.]

Caleb Caudle - "Hesitate" (live) [a song i've heard caleb and the band playing live for a bit, but here it is in stripped down acoustic mode. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle - "Lock and Key" (live) [another new song. this one will appear in full-band mode on the new EP. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle - "The Storm, Your Beauty and Me" (live) [another new song, this one also from the new EP and also, probably, bound for recording on the next caleb caudle and the bayonets LP. click here to listen.]
Caleb Caudle and the Bayonets feat. Caitlin Cary - "I Don't Think Heaven Would Take Us (If It Can't Have Us Both)" [a duet with the tres chicas/ex-whiskeytown member. pretty awesome that this happened, i must say.]
Mclusky - "To Hell With Good Intentions" [from do dallas. hey, i miss these guys. when might future of the left have another record coming out?]
Apex Manor - "The Party Line" [from the year of magical drinking. you know, i think the newly moved blind tiger would be a great spot for these guys to come play. you hear me, merge records/ross/anyone who can make that happen?]
Blur - "You're So Great" [from their self-titled album. one of these days i'm going to write an extensive piece about how my deep love for this record was thwarted for years by stupidity on my part. it's an interesting story, i swear.]
the Decemberists - "Cuyahoga" [yes, as in the REM song. not sure where this is from, but it popped up on twitter this week and man, i'm digging it. one of my fav REM songs and given a reverential treatment here by the decemberists.]
Lush - "500" [from lovelife. an album i've been rediscovering slowly. amazing stuff and sadly, their last.]
the Veils - "Bloom" [from troubles of the brain which i reviewed the other week at aquarium drunkard. really good.]
Supergrass - "Cheapskate" [from in it for the money, probably my favorite supergrass album. it stands up so amazingly well.]
Telekinesis - "You Turn Clear in the Sun" [from the excellent 12 desperate straight lines which i also reviewed at aquarium drunkard this week. can't wait to see them at local 506 on march 13th. that show is sold out, folks.]
Filthybird - "Pick Me Up" [from songs for other people. they'll be at kings in raleigh next tuesday, february 22nd along with athens, georgia's futurebirds.]
Jim White - "Bluebird" [from jim white presents: sounds of the americans. sadly, i don't have the album information on this song so i have no idea who the female singer is. i reviewed this album at aquarium drunkard as well. i'll have to ask jim tomorrow night in charlotte at the evening muse, friday at duke university in durham or saturday at SECCA in winston-salem. this is a masterful re-working of a song originally from jim's third album, drill a hole in that substrate.]
the Damnwells - "Werewolves" [from no one listens to the band anymore. thankfully, they will be at kings in raleigh on tuesday, march 29th.]
Hammer No More the Fingers - "Shark" [from black shark. haven't gotten all the way through the album yet, but the first three tracks are killer, especially this song, we'll be hearing more from this band from the triangle.]
Bill Fox - "Over and Away She Goes" [from shelter from the smoke, which the head drunkard was lauding this week. people love them some bill fox and i can see why.]
Lonnie Walker - "Compass Comforts" [from these times old times - another raleigh band to add to the frey. pretty good live, if i do say so myself.]
Nina Simone - "Save Me" [a take on an aretha franklin song and a pretty great way to close out the evening.]

That'll do it for this week. We should be doing the Indie/Rock Roundtable next week, though I've been behind on getting in touch with our friend Ryan, so we'll see how it goes. Either way, I'll see you next week. Until then, take care.

    Yeah, I do, too. I was pretty thrown by it at the time - but then again, I was a junior in high school, I believe, when it came out, and I wasn't quite as open to essential shifts in a band's core sound.
