J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 24th April 2013

[Welcome to another fantastic episode of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. I was joined this week by Ryan Snyder, award winning tweeter, from YES Weekly for our Indie/Rock Roundtable look at new music. This week we took at look at new albums from the Veils, their first new full-length since 2009, and a Record Store Day limited release by Stephen Malkmus and Friends. Check out the info below and on the podcast.

Next week's podcast will have a bit of a delay in uploading. I've finally figured out how to make my monthly upload allotment work, but next week's show will be a bit delayed while I work out that system. So instead of (what I try to make normally) a Friday post for the show, it will most likely not be until the following Monday. I appreciate you baring with me.

Now, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 24th April 2013 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Iggy and the Stooges - "Burn" [from the new album ready to die. i play this out of some misbegotten sense of obligation, i suppose. it's not a terrible song, but wouldn't i really rather just listen to fun house? yes. yes i would.]
the Happy Hollows - "Faces" [from their excellent album spells. hey, guys, new stuff anytime soon?]
Mazes - "Bite" [from ores & minerals. love the krautrockian drone of this. we'll have to keep hearing more. a great album.]
Snapper - "Buddy" [from their 1992 EP. great new zealand band that was on flying nun. awesome stuff.]

[Here's where Ryan Snyder and I took at look at the Veils' new album Time Stays, We Go and Stephen Malkmus and Friends' live performance of Can's classic album Ege Bamyasi. Take a listen to the podcast to catch the nuances - I like our discussion on these - but the results: The Veils - J. and Ryan : thumbs up; Stephen Malkmus and Friends - Ryan : thumbs up; J. : sideways thumb.]

the Veils - "Train With No Name" [from time stays, we go.]
the Veils - "Another Night on Earth" [ from time stays we go.]
Stephen Malkmus and Friends - "Vitamin C" (live) [from ege bamyasi played by stephen malkmus and friends.]
Stephen Malkmus and Friends - "Spoon" (live) [from ege bamyasi played by stephen malkmus and friends.]
the Shouting Matches - "Avery Hill" [from grownass man. i do sort of enjoy the ac/dc-esque riff at the beginning of this, but, yeah. not blowing me away.]
Toddlers - "Independence Day" [from the 19 EP. just a tremendous EP still.]
Frank Turner - "Recovery" [from tape deck heart, his latest album. pretty good stuff. we'll hear more.]
Dom - "Damn" [from the family of love EP. still a really awesome record.]
Girls Against Boys - "It's a Diamond Life" [well, fantastic news. girls against boys are back together and will be releasing a new EP later this year along with touring for it. this is the first song released off of it and it's quite good. can't wait to hear more.]
Estrangers - "Love's Pure Light" [from their forthcoming LP. they'll be at the flatiron here in greensboro this saturday night along with greensboro's eros and eschaton.]
Bleached - "Dreaming Without You" [from ride your heart which hasn't stopped being really awesome for me.]
the Replacements - "Portland" [from the 2008 re-issue of don't tell a soul. i took a look at the history of the song this week over at aquarium drunkard, so go check it out.]
Futurebirds - "Virginia Slims" [from the excellent new baba yaga. well worth hearing as it's a fantastic album.]
David Bowie - "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" [by request. from the new album the next day. excellent stuff.]

That'll do it for this week. Hope you enjoy the Indie/Rock Roundtable, and I'll be back next week with more new and classic stuff. Until then, take care.

    I would be listening to your podcast regularly but the sound quality makes it intolerable -- there is pulsating effect, volume going up and down repeatedly. Just click on the link and you will see what I mean. I hope you can get this corrected.

    I appreciate the feedback. Unfortunately it's not something I have a lot of control over - it's an issue with our equipment at the station that even the engineers are a bit flummoxed by at the moment. It's gotten far better than it was at first, but it could be something to do with new USB recording equipment that we started using when we switched to our new studio. I'll do what I can. I'm sorry this is affecting your ability to enjoy the show.
