J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 5th March 2014

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Boy, it's been a fun few days of lacking power and internet, but thankfully last night the power returned and, earlier this afternoon, the internet with it. North Carolina does love its March winter weather surprises. This was no exception.

Thanks to J.P. and Kevin from Surfer Blood for talking to me last Tuesday night ahead of their show here at the Blind Tiger. I hope you all enjoy the interview and the songs. They were nice guys and put on a fantastic show as well.

Now, while I have power, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 5th March 2014 show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Lydia Loveless - "Head" [from somewhere else. i love my editing job on this song. plus it's just a tremendous song. check out my album review over at aquarium drunkard.]
Liz Phair - "Divorce Song" [from exile from guyville. one of my favorite phair songs of all time. lyrically people have been comparing loveless to phair - not entirely accurate except possibly in tone - but still gave me an excuse to bring out this gem.]
Bleeding Rainbow - "Tell Me" [from their new album interrupt. we'll hear more - this one is growing on me.]
Ash - "Lose Control" [from 1977. it was ash wednesday, so that's why i thought it important to play ash. get it? great, great song, too.]
Real Estate - "Talking Backwards" [from atlas. we'll hear more from this record in coming weeks, but this song is a doozy, for sure.]
Fountains of Wayne - "Sink to the Bottom" [from their self-titled debut. oh, fountains of wayne, how wonderful your records are. seems like while the songwriting has gotten sharper over the years, they always miss out on their debut's brilliant brevity and put too many songs on. oh, well.]
Natural Child - "Out in the County" [from dancin' with wolves. pretty interesting throwback sounding song. we'll hear more.]
Teenage Fanclub - "Ain't That Enough" [from songs from northern britain. i heard that stephen malkmus covered "everything flows" the other night at his show in chapel hill. sheesh. wish i could've heard it.]

[Here's where I interviewed J.P. and Kevin from Surfer Blood. They were nice enough to talk to me about a bevy of things including their upcoming release for Record Store Day, Pythons Demos. Enjoy.]

Surfer Blood - "Say Yes to Me" [from pythons.]
Surfer Blood - "Prom Song" [from pythons.]
Drive-by Truckers - "First Air of Autumn" [from english oceans. more music from the new truckers album. still getting my bearings on it, but there are some great songs on here.]
Sunny Day Real Estate - "Seven" [from diary. the boys in sunny day are releasing their first new music since the rising tide from 2000 later this spring on a split 7" record. we'll see how it sounds.]
Temples - "Sun Structures" [the title track from their new album. growing and growing on me.]
the Housemartins - "I Smell Winter" [from now that's what I call quite good. boy, this turned out to be a highly appropriate song considering our winter blowout the next night.]
Jack Name - "Pure Terror" [from his new album light show. he played at guilford college this past saturday night, though i heard the show got shortened by a zealous r.a. seriously?]
Screaming Females - "It All Means Nothing" [from 2012's ugly and this is still a hell of a song. look forward to their next release.]
Quilt - "Saturday Bride" [from held in splendor. this record is growing on me quite a bit as well. we'll hear more.]
Little Brother - "The Getup" [from their debut album the listening. i remember watching these guys own the stage at guilford's serendipity spring concert in 2002.]
Simone Felice - "Running Through My Head" [from his forthcoming album strangers. digging this track and we'll hear more when we get closer to release time.]
the Strugglers - "Morningside Heights" [from 2008's the latest rights. it's a damn shame that this is (i think?) their most recent release. come back, strugglers.]
Wild Beasts - "Sweet Spot" [from present tense. pretty cool little song. we'll have to hear more.]
Citified - "Weddings" [from 2008's the meeting after the meeting. citified is working on their follow-up to their last EP absence. it'll get out there eventually.]
Dead Wives - "Mavis..." [from their EP buzzy fuzzy. this band features a member of one of our favorites from last year, speedy ortiz.]
Black Mountain - "Wucan" [from 2008's in the future. i forgot how much i really dug this record.]
Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - "Little Ones Run" [from their new album fuck off get free we pour light on everything.]
Del Amitri - "The Verb to Do" [from the b-sides collection lousy with love. excited that their lead singer, justin currie, is going to be playing at the cat's cradle back room in may. i will be there.]

That'll do it for this week's show. Sorry for the lack of power delay, but I'll be back this Wednesday with more new and classic music. Until then, take care.
