J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 26th June 2013

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. This week's podcast is hosted through my server - not through Libsyn - so make sure you click the download link below and don't wait for the iTunes subscription update. Next week's show will possibly be the same way, but I will let you know. This show was bangin' - in that I thoroughly had a great time from beginning to end - so I hope you find it equally enjoyable. Now, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 26th June 2013 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Killer Mike and El-P - "Sea Legs" [from run the jewels. the follow up to last year's # 4 album of the year on my list, it's a brash, crazy fun record in a lot of ways. go get it because i'm sure it's still floating around out there for free as a download as it was intended.]
Fugazi - "Cashout" [from the argument. who cares about black flag or flag? can i get a fugazi reunion tour, please?]
Bass Drum of Death - "Shattered Me" [from their self-titled album. frank and mad dog have both been big boosters of this band. it's good, but we'll see how well it hangs on.]
Helmet - "Milquetoast" [from betty. just a rock song. nothing much to see here. until you get run over. gahhhh.]
Editors - "A Ton of Love" [from the weight of your love. the editors got a bad rap for sounding like interpol and you can hear why, but they've managed to hang in there over the years.]
Midnight Oil - "Sell My Soul" [from diesel and dust. a good friend and i were discussing how awesome this band is - if you've listened to the show for awhile, you know my love for them is pretty pervasive. this is one of my absolute favorite songs by them and it's mostly because of this version.]
Ashrae Fax - "Pointbreak" [from static crash. old greensboro music reborn! ashrae fax is back together and their 2003 album has been reissued on mexican summer. a very deserving record that did not get the attention it deserved originally.]
Lloyd Cole - "Butterfly" [from don't get weird on me babe. i do quite enjoy lloyd cole. just one of those things.]
Dessa - "Skeleton Key" [from parts of speech. finally the record is out and we'll be hearing more. it's good.]
Elastica - "Stutter" [from their self-titled debut. between this and "car song" as singles, elastica had me feeling pretty tingly as a teenager.]
Smith Westerns - "White Oath" [from soft will. finally this album is out as well. love this little song. we'll hear more.]
Imperial Teen - "No Matter What You Say" [from feel the sound. i have only seen imperial teen live once but they utterly blew me away at merge XX the other year - just a tremendous live band.]
Jason Isbell - "Elephant" [from southeastern. one of this year's finest songs from a pretty tremendous album as well.]
Lucinda Williams - "Out of Touch" [from essence. a grower record that has only grown on me more and more over the years since its release.]
Oblivians - "Run for Cover" [from desperation. digging the oblivians record. and you probably would, too.]
Pop Will Eat Itself - "Can U Dig It?" [from this is the day...this is the hour..this is this! i go on a bit about lynne thigpen on the podcast in regards to this song, but how can you not love the chief?]
Richard Buckner - "When You Tell Me How It Is" [from surrounded. this is the first officially released song from the forthcoming album due out on september 3rd. really liking this song (and the album) a lot so far. we'll hear more closer to album time.]
Drive-by Truckers - "18 Wheels of Love" [from gagstabilly. got to go and see the truckers for the fourteenth time this past friday night over at ziggy's in winston-salem. always a great show.]
Digable Planets - "9th Wonder (Blackitolism)" [from blowout comb. i've always been aware of digable planets but have never really listened to them. that's changing with the reissue of their sophomore, and final, album from light in the attic.]
Hammer No More the Fingers - "Steam" [from black shark. these guys played at new york pizza here in greensboro last friday. usually always a good show.]
St. Paul and the Broken Bones - "Broken Bones & Pocket Change" [from their EP greetings from st. paul and the broken bones. great new band that will have an album out next year. we'll hear more in the future, for sure.]
Television - "See No Evil" [from marquee moon. what else could i possibly say about this album?]
Savages - "I Am Here" [from silence yourself. one of my favorite records of this year so far, for sure.]
At the Drive-In - "Arcarsenal" [from relationship of command. i use the adjective 'steamroller' to describe songs a bit too often, probably, but this is a steamroller song without question.]
Beastie Boys - "Shadrach" [from paul's boutique. endlessly awesome. even my mom was dancing to it. or so she told me later.]
the Mantles - "Hello" [from long enough to leave. really like this song, so we'll hear more from this band.]
Devo - "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA" [from duty now for the future. alan myers, drummer for devo from their debut through 1984's shout album died this last week. while i've never been a huge devo fan, i've long appreciated what they did/do as artists and the immense influence it had on post-punk rock and roll and onward, so i wanted to give a nod to their late drummer. thanks for your music, alan. rest in peace.]

That'll do it for this show. This week, Wednesday, July 3rd, I'll be on the air from 4 PM - 8 PM doing an extended show (with Democracy Now airing from 5 - 6 PM) and then hanging out with my friend Pat on the air from 8 - 10 PM, so tune in and catch a lot of good music. Until then, take care.
