#1909: Dark Sorcerer

One aspect of music that has always attracted me is that there’s more of it being created out of thin air every minute of every day. Here’s a lot of it!

#1908: Love Comes In Funny Packages

Spring’s getting a tenuous grip on NYC and today I have a tenuous grip on my playlist. Going all over the place with vintage ballads, raucous punk and new strange tracks from bands like Pinch Points, Durand Jones, Toyzanne and Tropical Fuck Storm. Get in on the party and hit up the show on Twitter: @FiendsFreelance

#1907: Midnight Siren

I’m feeling this long winter dragging on so to ease the passage into the glory of an NYC spring I’ve put together mostly mellow sounds. Dig on vintage fantasies and enjoy new gauze from Rudy De Anda, Nadine Carina, Lonesome Shack, and Frankie & the Witch Fingers.

Stay frosty, but not too frosty.

What’s That Sound? Winstons – s/t

One late night in the back end of 2016 during a rowdy post-election string of concerts, I saw Winstons get a crowd all riled up in the back room of Greenpoint dance club The Good Room. Everyone was raw from bad weather and an inescapably rough couple months and the room was ready for something real, and goddamn if these two didn’t bring it.

Over the few years since, Winstons have toured a bit, released a fantastic single and recorded what will be their first full length album, self-titled, out 3/1 on Virginia roots-rock imprint WarHen Records.

#1905: Strike 1000

Been laying down some themes lately so this week’s show is just a mix of the music that’s tickled my fancy over a particularly wintry week in Brooklyn. Dig on the usual selection of vintage rock cuts and new indie and alternative from bands like Old Mexico, Mid-Air Thief and Threatmantics. Hope you’re as fancily tickled as I was!

#1903: The Upsetter

I don’t consider myself a serious dude but my playlists often imply otherwise. This week we’ll dive into a collection that reflects my view of the state of our union. Classic psychedelia, modern punk, big riffs and golden grooves collide.

You can listen on iTunes Podcasts and Spotify as well!

Enjoy and have fun. Serious fun. Continue reading “#1903: The Upsetter”

Soundtrack To The Circus: Notables from 2018

Everyone has one of these “Best Of” lists and it’s been diverse this year. Here’s my list, in no real order, of notable releases with a brief blurb for each and (most importantly) links for you to listen and buy direct from the artists!  We’ll start with my absolute favorites and follow the consciousness stream the rest of the way.  Bands from the NYC area will have a * next to their name ’cause that’s where I live and it’s a great place to hear music.

What’s That Sound? Strange Majik – Channel T

The first time I met David Patillo aka Strange Majik was at his Lower East Side recording studio back in early 2015.  We’d crossed paths because we both had radio shows (he was on the UK’s Amazing Radio back then) and I was a fan of his work as the guitar half of the blues-punk duo Dead Exs.  We were meeting to discuss having him as a guest on Old Time Religion and to talk about his new (at the time) solo project as Strange Majik.

The World’s Mad and I Just Wanna Listen to Panic Blooms and Sex & Food

Modern anxiety and brinksmanship have reached peak levels it seems, and two recent albums have captured our current balance of hope and worry perfectly for me.

Both released earlier this year, Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Panic Blooms” and Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s “Sex & Food” really do it for me.  Each under their own power is good, but I think they’re better together.  They’re the alternate soundtrack to San Junipero. They’re a Black-Eyed Soul opera in three acts.

I’ve done the work for you, if you wanna hear my impressions click “read more”-> Continue reading “The World’s Mad and I Just Wanna Listen to Panic Blooms and Sex & Food”

What’s That Sound? The Glucks – Run Amok

My first taste of Belgian rock duo The Glucks was at the hands of a fan of the show by the name of Lansing Rawls.  He sent me a link to their 2016 LP “Youth On Stuff” and once I heard the title track I was immediately turned on by the raw breathless vitality of it.  Now they’ve followed it up with the equally potent new release “Run Amok.” Continue reading “What’s That Sound?
