J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 18th September 2013

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Had a great time this week with my trainee Nelly who did an excellent job of doing the things I told her to do. She's got a good strong presence on the air for a first-time DJ - always a problem with people shying away from the microphone when new to all this - and she also will probably have a pretty interesting show music wise. Look forward to hearing her on the air.

We'll be having our semester start meeting this Sunday, so while I'm fairly sure I'll be back on Wednesday nights at 6 PM EST, stay tuned here and on my Twitter feed for any updates.

Now, let's go. Onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 18th September 2013 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Tideland - "Get Lost" [from their album lull which actually came out last december, but is pretty solid. we'll probably hear more at some point.]
Gary Numan - "Remind Me to Smile" [from 1980's telekon which has long been my very favorite numan album. next week i'll be playing my gary numan my first time recording as well as have my interview with him up on aquarium drunkard, so stay tuned.]
Janelle Monae - "It's Code" [from the electric lady. one of the songs off the album that i intended to play last week, but decided on different ones. pretty awesome motown sounding classic.]
Verbena - "Killing Floor (Get Down On It)" [from la musica negra. i had a caller call in who really enjoyed the song. i swear, people miss verbena. i know i do.]
Obits - "Pet Trust" [from bed + bugs, their latest. really enjoy pretty much everything these folks have done. so yeah.]
Lucinda Williams - "Passionate Kisses" [from her self-titled record, 25 years old this year. now, a small beef. i went to see lucinda last night at the haw river ballroom expecting to see her do this album in its entirety. she didn't. did anyone go to her wednesday night show at haw river? did she do the album then? was i just mis-advertising this show? that said, she and her band were incredible last night. she's in really good form these days, it seems.]
Holy Ghost! - "Changing of the Guard" [from dynamics. kind of wish i'd caught these folks at hopscotch, but i didn't, so instead i'll just enjoy the new album.]
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - "Change the Locks" [from 1995's soundtrack to she's the one. this is a cover of the lucinda williams classic from her self-titled album. as a fun aside, petty and them also covered beck's "asshole" on this soundtrack. pretty interesting stuff.]
Summer Cannibals - "The Hand" [from no makeup. slowly becoming one of my favorite records of this year. i really dig these guys. come to north carolina!]
the Mekons - "Blow Your Tuneless Trumpet" [from rock 'n' roll, one of my very favorite mekons record. something i discovered years ago through the excellent vinyl libraries of wqfs.]
Eros and the Eschaton - "Heaven Inside" [from home address for civil war. these guys are out on the road now, so catch 'em if you can.]
the Meat Puppets - "Oh, Me" [from II. this is probably my favorite of the songs nirvana covered on unplugged back in the day. that performance was pretty amazing, all things considered. still very much worth revisiting the whole thing.]
Sebadoh - "Defend Yr Self" [from their first new album in fourteen years (this is the second verbal faux pas i made on this week's show, for those keeping count), defend yourself. we'll hear more because, well, it's sebadoh, man.]
Interpol - "Untitled" [from turn on the bright lights. a little hard to believe it's been eleven years since its release. i'm still pretty proud of my reflection on the album from our decade series over at aquarium drunkard.]
Roseland - "Nightlife" [from their new self-titled album. was great to have these guys on the show the other week, and if you missed that one, you should really listen to the live performances at least.]
Moby - "New Dawn Fades" [moby's really awesome version of the joy division classic from 1995's a means to an end: the music of joy division. i was reminded of this because of a video that made the rounds this week of girls against boys with the jesus lizard's david yow doing a cover of "she's lost control" by joy division. girls against boys' original cover of that song was on this tribute album as well.]
Gauntlet Hair - "Falling Out" [from stills which was released in july. and then apparently, the band broke up in august. oh, well. good music, still. no pun intended.]
Sonic Youth - "Tunic (Song for Karen)" [from goo. a song about karen carpenter. so, how many sonic youth songs with people named karen are there? this one, "karen koltrane," "karen revisited." any others?]
Phosphorescent - "Song for Zula" [from muchacho. hate that i missed getting to see them monday at the cat's cradle. anyone catch it?]
the Didjits - "Gold Eldorado" [from hornet pinata, probably my favorite didjits album. just so, so good.]
Jacuzzi Boys - "Be My Prism" [from their new self-titled album. really excellent, what i've heard so far. we'll hear more at some point.]
Social Distortion - "So Far Away" [from their self-titled album. still probably my favorite of their albums.]
Delorean - "Spirit" [from apar, their new album. i saw these guys at the pitchfork fest a few years back and really dug it.]
Destruction Unit - "Bumpy Road" [from deep trip. really like this song and though i'm not always in the mood to hear stuff like this, this was perfect.]
Bill Callahan - "The Sing" [from his new album dream river which, you know, bill callahan is amazing. just consistently so.]
the Church - "Spark" [from starfish. thought this was a good way to lead into pat's show and always a good band to end on.]

That'll do it for this week. As I said above, I should be back next Wednesday night at 6 PM EST. Until then, take care.
