#1928: Shibboleth

It seems hard to find a common grasp on what’s real these days. The source is arguably the struggle of outdated norms for survival in a changing nation, and they’re fighting with all the propaganda at their disposal. They’re angry shibboleths.

Here’s my set in response to the sorrow and dissonance of the last few weeks in the U.S. along with a concert update so you can get out and be with people. Hope it helps you keep your grip!

#1927: Mad World

I’m back from vacation and ready to share all the new stuff happening in my little rock and roll world. Selections go from loud to quiet to loud loud loud again. You’ll hear new music from Strange Majik, Henry Black, The Boleys, Jordan Rakei, Maneka and more plus shouts to Mother Feather, The Giraffes, and The Advertisers as they play big release shows this next week. Rock out and go throw some money a musician’s way for some soul nourishment.

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!

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.

What’s That Sound? White Mystery – “Outta Control”

When I was a kid back in the ’80s and ’90s, my family owned one of those handheld cassette recorders with the handles.  My sister and I, or sometimes friends, would record everything around us.  We’d create little radio programs and skits and songs and such.  It was silly and fun, full of inside jokes, the kind of thing young people did in in the safe space of close kinship.  A level of comfortable where you didn’t care about what anyone thought or said, just fun for fun’s sake.
