J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 22nd February 2012

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. I appreciate y'all putting up with the occasional gaps in the show these past weeks. I try to always make it up to you when I come back and this week was no exception - just packed to the gills with new stuff. Hope you enjoy.

The Bayonets, formerly Caleb Caudle and the Bayonets, will be stopping by for their record fourth appearance on the show next week. Their new album, Drive, is coming out shortly and their album release show is Saturday, March 3rd at the Garage in Winston-Salem. Ought to be a great time and I look forward to talking with the guys about the new album and hearing them play some stuff live. Make sure you catch it.

Now, while we can, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 22nd February 2012 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
A Place to Bury Strangers - "It'll Be Alright" [from onwards to the wall. more loud, abrasive rock and roll and a great way to open the show.]
Oakley Hall - "Confidence Man" [from gypsum strings. and an even better way to continue it. the opening track from this album and still, maybe, my all-time fav oakley hall song.]
Bruce Springsteen
- "Easy Money" [from wrecking ball. the record will be out in two weeks, but i'll tell you, if you're a fan of the boss, you won't be disapointed. really digging this song.]
Nada Surf - "Waiting for Something" [from the stars are indifferent to astronomy. more fantastic power pop from this - well - veterans, at this point, right?]
Heartless Bastards - "Parted Ways" [from arrow. good to hear new stuff from erica and company. really digging this song.]
P.O.S. - "Low Light Low Life" [from never better. doomtree wrapped up their encore with this one the other night and, you know, it was awesome. yes, it was.]
Grimes - "Genesis" [from visions. this record has been getting quite a bit of talk recently, so decided to give it a spin. we'll probably hear more.]
Archers of Loaf
- "Underdogs of Nipomo" [from vee vee. this record gets the reissue treatment soon, so keep your eyes peeled for it.]
the Bayonets - "Triumph" [from driver. caleb and the rest of the band are going to be on the show next week, as i said above, and their new album is really quite good. we'll hear a lot more next week.]
The The - "This is the Day" [from soul mining. ran across my copy of this album and couldn't help myself. m&m's commercial be damned.]
Cloud Nothings
- "Cut You" [from attack on memory. one of my favorite records of 2012 so far.]
Nirvana - "Love Buzz" (live) [from live at the paramount. messr. cobain would've turned 45 this week. this live record was recorded right after the release of nevermind. ah, the hope and excitement that must've been there that night.]
Frankie Rose - "Know Me" [from interstellar. really digging on this record and we'll hear a lot more, for sure. loving this 4AD-style revival of late. check out a great review over at aquarium drunkard.]
El-P - "Drive" [from i'll sleep when you're dead. el-p, please finish your new album soon. we're dying.]
Black Tambourine - "What's Your Game" [teaming up with dee dee from the dum dum girls, the slumberland veterans reunite and cover the ramones. too cool. go grab it for free over at pitchfork.]
Bear in Heaven - "Wholehearted Mess" [from beast rest forth mouth. another band that it's been far too long, but thankfully their new one is due out later this year as well.]
Field Music - "Guillotine" [from plumb. i'll cop to not having really paid attention to this band before, but this new record has shades of a less-fuzzy elephant 6. am i way off base?]
Alex Chilton - "Jumpin' Jack Flash" [from free again: the '1970' sessions. a cover of the rolling stones' classic from the new release. awesome.]
the Emergency - "Breakdown a Go-Go" [from how can you move? ah, one of my favorite songs ever from the defunct morgantown, west virginia band.]
Jim White
- "Epilogue to a Marriage" [from where it hits you. a truly fantastic song from the new album. check out both my review of the album and my interview with jim over at aquarium drunkard.]
Shearwater - "Breaking the Yearlings" [from animal joy. another band i'd ignored up until now, but based on this song, i should rectify that.]
Tennis - "Origins" [from young and old. i'm not confusing this band with tennis and the mennonites, am i?]
Bob Dylan - "Cold Irons Bound" [from time out of mind. if you follow me on twitter, then you saw me talking about this record this week. good way to know what things are going to pop up on the show, that's for sure.]
Midtown Dickens - "Only Brother" [from home. this durham band now features former wqfs dj jonathan henderson. diggin' this song, too.]
Dr. Dog - "Lonesome" [from be the void. really liking this new album from my most favorite band with a terrible name.]
Sharon Van Etten - "Give Out" [from tramp. truly, a great record. that's all.]
- "Map Ref. 41 degrees N, 93 degrees W" [from 154. hadn't played any wire in awhile, so here's a classic bit as well. sorry for having to fade out a bit to do the station ID.]

That'll do it for this week. Make sure you tune in next week for the Bayonets live in studio and more great new music. Until then, take care.

    Just went to listen to this and the show isn't there. Any chance of recovery or is it lost to the ether?

    Had not noticed. Looks like the show is lost, judging by the file on my computer. This happened one other time. I can't explain what happens - as it just loops two chunks of recorded sound over and over and my show just doesn't exist. Shame. Sorry, folks.
