J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 22nd January 2014

[Welcome to another episode of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Sorry about the missing show from last week - it was a good one, too, but technology interferes sometimes. I think this week's show is even better - aside from the lack of a triptych of versions of "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" at least. But all the shows can't be that cool.

Now, while the fire's are burning, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 22nd January 2014 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
White Hinterland - "Ring the Bell" [from their forthcoming album baby which will be out in april. great to hear this band back after four years.]
Fountains of Wayne - "No Better Place" [from welcome interstate managers. i still love this record quite a bit. jus a tremendous band.]
Against Me! - "Transgender Dysphoria Blues" [the title track from their latest. just a sincerely powerful song. this record is growing on me a lot.]
Bash and Pop - "Friday Night (Is Killing Me)" [the title track from their one and only album. maybe one of my all-time favorite songs. granted, that's a long list, but you get the idea.]
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - "Planetary Motion" [the lead track from their latest, wig out at jagbag's. this record is growing on me. its a bit of a slow grower in spots, but it's quite good.]
P.O.S. - "Bumper" [the lead track from 2012's we don't even live here. i'm still blown away by this record, two years on.]
Warpaint - "Keep It Healthy" [from their latest self-titled album. speaking of the 90s - produced by flood. had no idea what that guy was up to.]
Lush - "500" [from lovelife. oh, lush. i miss this band.]
Jack Name - "Pure Terror" [from light show. we'll probably hear more - new music from their just-out album.]
Sugar - "If I Can't Change Your Mind" [from copper blue. classic sugar from their debut album.]
Shana Falana - "Gone" [from shana falana sings herself to sleep. this is a new cassette-only physical release as part of shana's indiegogo campaign to raise money for a european tour. go over and look into donating to help her out and snag a copy of this pretty great compilation of her early stuff.]
Toad the Wet Sprocket - "All Right" [from in light syrup. got this stuck in my head this past week. i think seeing them last year woke up my dormant love.]
Doug Paisley - "It's Not Too Late (To Say Goodbye)" [from strong feelings. the guys in megafaun specifically praised messr. paisley on my show a few years back, so it's about time we heard him on the show.]
Marah - "It's Only Money, Tyrone" [from kids in philly. just flat out one of the best rock records of the 2000s.]
Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - "Take Away These Early Grave Blues" [from their latest fuck off get free we pour light on everything. love these guys - who played with vic chesnutt on his last couple of records - and digging this new record.]
Jungle - "Platoon" [from their the heat EP. ryan snyder turned me on to these guys the other week. they only have this EP out currently from last year, but we'll hear more.]
Drive-by Truckers - "The Part of Him" [from english oceans. the record isn't out until march, but it's a solid one for sure. we'll hear more as we get closer to the release date. they have upcoming shows at the orange peel in asheville (jan. 31st and feb. 1st) and at the ritz in raleigh (mar. 14th).]
Dinosaur Jr. - "Start Choppin'" [from where you been. freak scene, a cover band tribute to the band, is at the garage in winston-salem tonight, january 24th.]
Phosphorescent - "Ride On / Right On" [from muchacho. they're at the neighborhood theatre in charlotte tonight, january 24th.]
Caveman - "In the City" [from last year's self-titled album. and these guys are opening for phosphorescent tonight.]
Shy Boys - "And I Am Nervous" [from their self-titled album. interesting young band with their debut. we'll hear more.]
Autolux - "Turnstile Blues" [from future perfect. haven't played any in awhile by this band, but they're quite good.]
The Lover Speaks - "No More 'I Love You's'" [from their self-titled album. the original that was covered rather amazingly by annie lennox.]
'Red' Tommy Malbeouf - "Andrea's Song" [my friend's dad, who passed away this week, playing an original composition of his. a very talented bluegrass fiddle player. rest in peace.]

That'll do it for this week. I'll be back next week with more great music, so until then, take care.
