J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 12th March 2014

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. This week's show was particularly fun, I believe. Lots of good new and classic stuff. On the actual live broadcast, I had some trouble with the new song by Nothing, but you lucky podcast listeners get the whole song as it was intended to be heard. So just sort of ignore my apology in the voice break after that set.

In a couple of weeks I'm going to have some people up to talk about the upcoming Phuzz Phest in Winston-Salem. This year's lineup is insanely good, so we'll have lots to talk about, I'm sure.

Alright, now, before any of you get distracted by March Madness, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 12th March 2014 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Pontiak - "Ghosts" [from innocence. this was the first song i played off of this record about a month or so back and man, it still just plows through your ears. so good.]
Dilated Peoples - "Work the Angles" [from the platform. so, after doing some research, apparently dilated peoples have been back together since last year. i'm sleeping on it. come to north carolina, guys!]
Eagulls - "Requiem" [the b-side to their "nerve endings" single from their self-titled album. love this cover of killing joke's song from their debut. that's a band i haven't played in awhile. maybe next week.]
Jarvis Cocker - "Heavy Weather" [from his jarvis solo record. i drove through a pounding rainstorm to get to the show on wednesday, so this was in honor of that.]
Morgan Delt - "Barbarian Kings" [from their self-titled album. finally, after weeks of promising. i really need to do better on that top-of-show list of upcoming artists.]
Elastica - "Car Song" [from their self-titled debut. i miss this band. even if their second record wasn't nearly as good. the video for this song was awfully cool though. i miss spike jonze's music videos. plus, this album is 20 years old this week - march 14th. crazy.]
together Pangea - "Offer" [from badillac. more pretty excellent stuff from these guys.]
Patti Smith - "Break It Up" [from her debut album horses. oh, patti smith. one of my favorite songs off of this album.]
Nothing - "Hymn to the Pillory" [from guilty of everything. a pretty interesting record that we will hear more from.]
Michael Penn - "Don't Let Me Go" [from mp4: days since a lost time accident. among my all-time favorite michael penn songs.]
Angel Olsen - "Stars" [from burn your fire for no witness. this record continues to grow and grow for me. just excellent.]
Grace Jones - "Me! I Disconnect From You" [from the forthcoming re-issue of her 1981 album nightclubbing. this was recorded at the time of the album but not released. love hearing people do interesting covers of gary numan's stuff, as big a numan fan as i am.]
Jessica Lea Mayfield - "I Wanna Love You" [from make my head sing... one of the artists that will be at phuzz phest in early april. enjoying this record so far.]
the Go-Betweens - "Twin Layers of Lightning" [from liberty belle and the black diamond express. i do need to hear more go-betweens. what other records should i check out?]
Real Estate - "Crime" [from atlas. just a lovely song from a lovely record.]
Rickie Lee Jones - "It Takes You There" [from the evening of my best day. she opened with this when i saw her last fall and it was spell binding. i have to see her live again.]
Dum Dum Girls - "Rimbaud Eyes" [from too true. this record just hasn't grabbed me the way their previous one did. not sure if it's the production or what. songs aren't bad and bravo for moving forward, but, i don't know.]
Futurebirds - "Serial Bowls" [from baba yaga. love these dudes. come back to greensboro again. seems like you hit up every city in the state except us this time.]
Drive-by Truckers - "Pauline Hawkins" [from english oceans. another record that i'm not sure how i feel about. it's good - really good in spots - but the claims from some critics that it's their best ever has me scratching my head a bit.]
Jenny Hval - "Innocense is Kinky" [the title track from her latest. enjoyed this record and she'll be at local 506 pretty soon. i think i want to go.]
the Bad Lovers - "Freaks" [from wild times. enjoying this record, too, and finally got around to getting this song on the show after a few weeks of misfires.]
that dog. - "Minneapolis" [from retreat from the sun. oh, anna waronker. your husband told me last april that you guys were working on a new that dog record. please tell me it's true.]
Michael Kiwanuka - "Waitin' Around to Die" [from the new "you've got nothing to lose" single. woah. seriously. excited to hear him back and very excited to see him cover this.]
Potty Mouth - "Black and Studs" [from hell bent. a good record from last year that didn't quite make my year-end.]
Frankie Cosmos - "Owen" [from the album zentropy. i think we'll have to hear more of this because i like it.]
Bjork - "Enjoy" [from post. this record still gets in my head on a regular basis. it's a shame i've kind of zoned out on everything she did after as a result.]
Kalle Mattson - "Eyes Speak" [from someday, the moon will be gold. this is a gorgeous song. i'm really getting into this record. we'll hear more.]
Roman Candle - "Small Time" [from their latest debris. enjoying their latest album an awful lot as well.]

Alright, that'll do it for this week. Tune in next week for more great new and classic music and until then, take care.
