J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 14th August 2013

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. This will be the last podcast before the end of the fundraising time period - your last day to donate to the podcast and get one of the great gifts in return is next Wednesday, August 21st which also happens to be my birthday. So if you were wondering what to get me this year, well, there you go. Click here to read all about it and find the Pay Pal link.

I was joined this week by one of my favorite Greensboro bands, the excellent Eros and the Eschaton. Their new album Home Address for Civil War came out this week on Bar/None Records and the band stopped by to talk about that and some other stuff. So enjoy the music and the interview.

Now, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 14th August 2013 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Ashrae Fax - "Daddystitch" [from the re-issue of 2003's static crash. looking forward to seeing them live on august 31st at the flatiron here in town.]
Sleeper - "Nice Guy Eddie" [from the it girl, which i still think is a tremendously great album that, sadly, no one really talks about much anymore.]
Pop. 1280 - "Lights Out" [from their new album imps of perversion. not sure how i feel about this album yet versus their excellent one from last year, but we'll see.]
Beck - "Pay No Mind" [from mellow gold. this song got stuck in my head a few weeks ago and didn't let go. so here it is.]
the Mantles - "Don't Cross Town" [from long enough to leave. and i definitely confused the mantles with the pastels in my head, so completely ignore my statement about the band releasing their first record in 16 years. that was completely wrong.]
Supergrass - "Richard III" [from in it for the money. still one of my favorite records of the 90s.]
Viva La Muerte - "Obscuro" [from all the birds, another pretty sharp record by a greensboro band.]
the Clean - "Big Soft Punch" [from the new re-issue of their first LP vehicle. this has long been one of my favorite clean songs, so good to have more reason to play it.]
Pure Bathing Culture - "Pendulum" [from their new album moon tides. i really dig this song, so we'll be hearing a good bit more, i think.]
the Replacements - "Busted Up" [from the songs for slim single released late last year. this is the reunited 'mats running through a slim dunlap original. the day of the show was slim dunlap's birthday. happy birthday, slim.]
No Age - "I Won't Be Your Generator" [from their new album an object. really like what i'm hearing so far, so we'll hear more.]
Jim White - "Wordmule" [from the mysterious tale of how i shouted wrong-eyed jesus! the song was featured in the season premiere of breaking bad this past sunday, so good for you, jim.]
the Charlatans U.K. - "Crashin' In" [from their 1995 self-titled album. just this week, the charlatans' founding member and drummer, jon brookes, died at the age of 44 from cancer. thoughts go to his family and bandmates. rest in peace, jon.]

[And here is where my interview with Kate and Adam of Eros and the Eschaton took place. We talked about the long, interesting journey to the formation of the band and the accident that made Greensboro their home. We also checked out a few tracks from their excellent new album Home Address for Civil War. Enjoy.]

Eros and the Eschaton - "Heaven Inside" [from home address for civil war.]
Eros and the Eschaton - "Over and Over" [from home address for civil war.]
Eros and the Eschaton - "You Know I Do" [from home address for civil war.]
Bombadil - "Learning to Let Go" [from their new album metrics of affection. we'll be hearing more from this great north carolina band.]
Disappears - "Era" [the title track from their latest LP. really good to hear these guys back.]
Distant Correspondent - "Badlands" [the b-side to the first single for their new self-titled album. as a caveat, their bass player is one of my writing cohorts over at aquarium drunkard, but this stuff is quite good.]
Superchunk - "Overflows" [from their new album i hate music. great to hear the band back again even if they're going to be touring with laura ballance.]
Medicine - "Burn It" [from their new album, to the happy few. another band returned from quite a long absence. very exciting.]
John Murray - "Photograph" [from his excellent album the graceless age. really tremendous stuff.]

That'll do it for this week. I'll be back next week for my birthday show which, honestly, will probably just be the usual awesome mix of new and classic stuff.
