J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 21st September 2011

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. A pretty great show this week with lots of great new music, so there you go. Ought to be awesome.

I'm going to be AWOL for next week's show, so there will not be a podcast, but make sure you tune in live on 90.9 FM or on our live webstream to listen to whomever fills in for me. It ought to be good regardless.

Now, while we can, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 21st September 2011 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Tommy Stinson - "All This Way for Nothing" [from one man mutiny, his second solo record. i'm really enjoying this - quite a bit more than the first one, to be honest.]
R.E.M. - "Disturbance at the Heron House" [from document. so it was announced this week that after 31 years, r.e.m. is finally calling it quits. it'll be weird to live in a world without that band, but at the same time, they have a well deserved rest coming their way. thanks for the music, guys.]
Fruit Bats - "Heart Like an Orange" [from tripping. i like this song and fruit bats are a band that have been getting more and more attention. we'll have to hear more.]
Fugazi - "Ex-Spectator" [from the argument which celebrates its 10th anniversary early next month. i took a look back at the album over at aquarium drunkard this week. check it out.]
Girls - "Honey Bunny" [from the new father, son and holy ghost which i'm really enjoying. seriously.]
Kula Shaker - "Hey Dude" [from their debut album, k. oh, what it must be like to be haley mills' son. what an interesting thing.]
Male Bonding - "Tame the Sun" [from endless now, another record i'm really enjoying. is it just me, or is the fall pumping out record after record of really solid music this year?]
Pulp - "The Night That Minnie Timperly Died" [from we love life which also celebrates its 10th anniversary this fall. ten years without fugazi and pulp? how have i survived?]
Kathleen Edwards - "Change the Sheets" [from her forthcoming album voyageurs which will be out early january of next year. i wrote up a short bit about this song over at aquarium drunkard. go check it out and grab the song. it's excellent.]
that dog. - "Minneapolis" [from retreat from the sun. i've said a ton about that dog over the years, so i'll just continue to say, awesome.]
Megafaun - "Hope You Know" [from the new self-titled record which came out this week. it's a doozy, too.]
the Jayhawks - "Cinnamon Love" [from mockingbird time, their first album with the classic lineup of gary louris and marc olson, keyboardist karen grotberg, bassist marc perlman and drummer tim o'reagan since 1995's tomorrow the green grass. it's really hard to believe it's been 16 years since that line up produced an album together, but here it is. grotberg hasn't been missing as long as olson was (she left after recording smile in 2000) but she is still just as welcome a return as olson's voice. we'll hear a lot more.]
St. Vincent - "Chloe in the Afternoon" [from the new tender mercy. we'll hear a lot more as so far, this record is sounding good.]
Josh Rouse - "Quiet Town" [from subtitulo, probably the last rouse record that i really, thoroughly liked. ah, well.]
the War on Drugs - "Baby Missiles" [from slave ambient. if this song ain't springsteen, i don't know what is.]
Johnny Cash - "Solitary Man" [the man in black's take on the neil diamond song from cash's american recordings III album.]
John Doe - "Don't Forget How Much I Love You" [from his new record keeper. good to hear doe back after about three years. really enjoyed his last one.]
Gary Numan - "Are 'Friends' Electric?" [from replicas. this is just one of those stone cold classics of synthesizer rock. really, of rock in general.]
A.A. Bondy - "Surfer King" [from the new believers. i interviewed bondy last week and it went up on aquarium drunkard this week. check it out.]
John Wesley Harding - "Still Photo" [from john wesley harding's new deal. harding has a new record coming out on yep roc records in october. we'll keep our ears peeled.]
Matthew Sweet - "She Walks the Night" [from modern art which will be out next week. i should have a review of it up on drunkard next week as well.]
Tom Waits - "16 Shells From a Thirty-Ought Six" [from swordfishtrombones. obviously messr. waits has a much anticipated new album coming out later this fall, but i thought i'd go with some classic tom this week.]
Butterflies - "Guitarist" [from residual child. butterflies are playing at the blind tiger as part of greensborofest this weekend. they're playing saturday night. check out some of the dates over on facebook.]
My Bloody Valentine - "Lose My Breath" [from isn't anything, the album that preceded that classic loveless. my drunkard cohort, s. mcdonald, took a look back at the album this week over at the drunkard.]
Charles Bradley - "The World (Is Going Up In Flames" (live) [a really awesome recording from an aquarium drunkard session that gets played on the sirius-xm weekly show. you can download this song over at the blog.]
Michael Penn - "Lucky One" [from mp4: days since a lost time accident. where has michael penn disappeared to, i should ask? his last new studio album was 2005. and his last good one was 2000.]
Wild Flag - "Boom" [from their self-titled debut. we'll hear a lot more, clearly.]
Del Amitri - "Nothing Ever Happens" [from change everything. i love del amitri. in case you didn't know this.]
Stornoway - "The End of the Movie" [from their self-titled debut. seriously still one of my most favorite records of the past several years.]

That'll do it for this week. I'll be back in two weeks with more brand spankin' new music. Until then, take care.
