J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 25th September 2013

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. A fantastic show - especially a few key sets, lordhavemercy. Hope you enjoy.

I'll be joined next week by Nathan Arizona and the New Mexicans. You have heard them on the show before and there's a new song on this week's episode as well. Look forward to having them on.

Now, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 25th September 2013 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Obits - "Spun Out" [from their latest, bed + bugs. really digging it so far, but then again, it is obits. what else would i expect?]
Nirvana - "Scentless Apprentice" [from in utero. really into the massive 20th anniversary re-issue of this that came out this week. reminded me of why i still love this record even though, as mad dog once said, "i just don't have that bad a day anymore."]
Frankie Rose - "Street of Dreams" [from her new album herein wild. now sure exactly how i feel it stacks up to last year's interstellar yet, but we'll see.]
Tiger Bear Wolf - "You Play Guitar" [from their self-titled 2005 album. to be fair, this is actually an instrumental track plus "you play guitar" which run together on the album proper. but still just genuinely terrific. this is one of my favorite sets of the night.]
Potty Mouth - "The Spins" [from hell bent. another band whose name i sort of dislike, but i like the music so far. we'll hear more.]
Midnight Oil - "Stars of Warburton" [from blue sky mining. this is one of my all-time favorite midnight oil songs (and that's a tough list to climb, by the way), so yeah.]
J's Indie/Rock My First Times - Gary Numan: Click here to listen. i interviewed gary numan for aquarium drunkard and he did me the favor of telling the story of his first concert. it's a doozy, too, with nazareth and a young numan going down for the count on three separate occasions. take a listen.]
Gary Numan - "Love Hurt Bleed" [from his new album splinter (songs from a broken mind) which will be out in october. pretty good stuff.]
Fountains of Wayne - "Someone's Gonna Break Your Heart" [from sky full of holes. one of my all-time favorite fountains of wayne songs, so i am still bummed that the one time i saw them, on tour for this album, they didn't play it. sheesh.]
Jacuzzi Boys - "Double Vision" [from their new self-titled album. digging this record a good bit. i feel like their name makes them sound like douchebags, but the music redeems.]
Drive-by Truckers - "Shut Up and Get On the Plane" [from southern rock opera. always a highlight when the truckers play it live. it has been years, no doubt, since i've played it on the show.]
the Love Language - "First Shot" [from ruby red. the love language are going to be playing, along with estrangers, at the upcoming SECCA crossroads series installment on thursday, october 17th. tickets are available now over at their website.]
Warren Zevon - "Play It All Night Long" [from bad luck streak in dancing school. back at the beginning of september marked ten years since warren zevon died. he is still missed. this song, i love, and it's an off-and-on standard of drive-by truckers concerts, too.]
CHVRCHES - "The Mother We Share" [from their new album the bones of what you believe. digging this stuff, even if it's a bit slick at times. they'll be at the orange peel in asheville on saturday, november 30th.]
Kim Fowley - "Something New" [from 1973's international heroes. kim has a new autobiography/memoir called lord of garbage that is out. it covers the first 30 years of his life, up through his tenure in the 60s as a music producer.]
White Hills - "Forever in Space (Enlightened)" [from so you are...so you'll be. pretty interesting psychedelic stuff. we probably won't hear a ton - all the tracks, like this one, are a bit lengthy - but i like this kind of stuff, so do indulge on occasion.]
Lucinda Williams - "Sundays" (live) [one of the bonus tracks from an earlier remastered edition of her self-titled album. she was tremendous last week at the haw river ballroom, by the way, and if you can catch her live with this current live-band iteration, you really should.]
Surfer Blood - "Demon Dance" [from this year's pythons. they'll be at the visulite theatre in charlotte on monday, september 30th and at the cat's cradle in carborro on tuesday, october 1st.]
Langhorne Slim and the Law - "Bad Luck" [from their most recent album, the way we move. they'll be at the haw river ballroom in saxapahaw tonight, friday, september 27th.]
Nathan Arizona and the New Mexicans - "Reality TV" [from the new shake EP. they'll be on my show next week.]
Weekend - "July" [from their latest album jinx. they'll be at local 506 in chapel hill this saturday, september 28th.]
Radical Dads - "Mountain Town" [from their latest rapid reality. this may be my sleeper album of the year in terms of just, well, having never heard of them until i stumbled upon this album. very, very good.]
Mary Lou Lord - "Baby Blue" [the title track from her 2004, and sadly most recent, album. got this stuck in my head earlier this week and, well, there you go.]
Beady Eye - "Iz Rite" [one of my absolute favorite songs from BE. this album almost certainly won't be on my year-end albums list, but this song will make the singles list for sure.]
Vic Chesnutt - "Coward" [from 2009's at the cut. still miss you, vic.]

That'll do it for this week. Join me next week as we have Nathan Arizona and the New Mexicans live in studio and lots of great new music as well. Until then, take care.
