J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 5th October 2011

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Big thanks to Zach for filling in for me last week. You can catch his show on Tuesday mornings at 8 AM here on WQFS, so make sure to check it out. Tonight I was joined in studio by Baeden Buckner, member of the Quiet Brace and also Vice President of the Official Beard and Moustache Club of North Carolina. Their annual Beardtoberfest is coming up next Thursday, October 13th, at the Blind Tiger here in Greensboro and all of the proceeds from the concert and facial hair competitions are going to the Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro. Check us out talking about that during the show as well as his band and hearing some of their stuff.

Now, while we can, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 5th October 2011 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Dum Dum Girls - "Always Looking" [from the new only in dreams which is quite stellar. we'll be hearing plenty.]
the Afghan Whigs - "Going to Town" [from black love. i still don't understand why people are down on this record. if you like gentlemen, there's no way you shouldn't like this record.]
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - "Stick Figures in Love" [from mirror traffic. anyone catch them up at the haw river ballroom this past weekend?]
Sixteen Horsepower - "Brimstone Rock" [from low estate. i just have to pull this song out from time to time because, seriously, amazing.]

[Here's where I talked with Baeden Buckner about the upcoming Beardtoberfest. We also took a listen to some of his band, the Quiet Brace, that will be playing at the fest along with Another Roadside Attraction and the Lake Isle on October 13th. Come out to benefit the Down Syndrome Network of Greater Greensboro.]

the Quiet Brace - "Young 'uns" [from their new self-titled EP.]
the Quiet Brace - "Empty Corners" [also from their new self-titled EP.]
Matthew Sweet - "Modern Art" [the title track from his latest. pretty good song, i think. reminds me of in reverse a good bit.]
Elf Power - "The Naughty Villain" [from the winter is coming. one of my favorite elf power songs and, in fact, maybe the first one i ever heard by them.]
Black Grape - "In the Name of the Father" [from it's great when you're straight, yeah. a really, really good record that has gotten buried over time unfortunately.]
Wilco - "Born Alone" [from the whole love. really liking the new wilco. i wouldn't put it up there with a ghost is born, which i really love, but it definitely trumps the last album. sky blue sky has grown on me a lot in recent years though. good stuff. and the lyrics reminded me of..]
the Ramones - "Born to Die in Berlin" [from adios amigos!. the last song on their last album. great stuff.]
Times New Viking - "Ever Falling In Love" [from dancer equired. i would like to catch these guys live some day.]
the Lover Speaks - "No More 'I Love You''s" [from their self-titled 1986 album. of course annie lennox would cover this and make it massive, but the original is a great piece of work, too.]
Wild Flag - "Glass Tambourine" [from their self-titled record. really enjoying this one so far.]
the Dead Boys - "Sonic Reducer" [from young loud and snotty. i wanted to play monster magnet's "negasonic teenage warhead," but someone had put a kmfdm album in that case. i hate you, whoever you are.]
A.A. Bondy - "The Twist" [from believers. really digging on this album, too.]
Maffitt / Davies - "Landscape Grown Cold" [from the rise and fall of honest which was written about over on aquarium drunkard this past week. wow, what a great record.]
John Doe - "Never Enough" [from his latest, keeper. thanks for the request, frank.]
Sleeper - "What Do I Do Now" [from the it girl. sleeper didn't get nearly enough credit in their day, but i really enjoy this song and this album a lot.]
the Jayhawks - "She Walks In So Many Ways" [from mockingbird time, their first album in almost ten years and their first with the 'classic' lineup in 16. it's good.]
Charles Bradley - "Stay Away" (live) [yeah. a cover of the nirvana classic and wow, this things kills. swamp blues take on it is just amazing. take a listen.]
Twin Sister - "Stop" [from the new in heaven. nothing to rival "lady daydream" for me just yet, but the album is pretty solid. we'll hear more.]
Robert Ellis - "Graceland" [a cover of the paul simon classic from the lagniappe series over at aquarium drunkard. really awesome. go check it out.]
Kathleen Edwards - "Wapusk" [the b-side to her new "change the sheets" single from her forthcoming album. this song won't be on the album, but it's really good and has that justin vernon touch as well.]

That'll do it for this week. Tune in next week for a hopefully special live guest and a lot of great new music. Until then, take care.
