#1805: Youth On Stuff

This one goes out to the kids. It’s all theirs in the end, anyway.

Classic riffs, future trips, old-soul funk and left-field junk.

#1804: It Will Evaporate

Life is fleeting and time online makes it seem even more so.
I’m paradoxically asking you to log on in order to spend some time logged out.
Vintage punk, garage and soul meld with some neo-grunge and stoner rock to lift you outta the daily swamp runoff from the internet.

Get lifted.

#1803: All The Love That I’m Giving

Love is often intense, messed up, wonderful, unforgettable, complicated.
That’s not today’s theme per se but it’s the theme of 95% of all songs so close enough.
Come get summa this lurve.

#1801: Punching A Hole

Welcome to 2018!
Everyone has so many plans, predictions, resolutions and such that it’s easy to feel hemmed in. Like you’re in a corral with nowhere to go. As it is with all the good innovators, though, you have to take a look to either side. Look up and down. Find the weakest point and plow right through.

Here’s a list of weirdos, psychos, rabble rousers and loud motherfuckers. Here’s to a new and better year.

Vintage and modern wildness plus brand new tracks from King Gizzard, Black Delta Movement, Korto, The Men and more.

#1744: You Ain’t Got No Choice

There’s a reason so many legendary bands come from NYC.  You’ve got the five boroughs plus the surrounding “metro area” and all of them feed bands into the NYC music scene.  That’s a lot of competition and as a result you have a better chance of good stuff rising to the top.  There’s something for everyone, and for me in the last year there have been of host of great sonic discoveries.

This set is a sort of aural exploration of the last year or so for me in NYC.  This is a collection of bands I’ve seen live, record labels that I’ve followed, guests from the show, friends I’ve made and surprises from all corners of our sleepless city.  It’s not THE comprehensive list for the super-hip by any means, but it’s my 2017 love letter to my favorite place in the world.

#1742: Mixed Up Mind

There’s a bit of a pop tinge to today’s show as we explore grey area and mixed messages. There’s a national conversation right now about what’s right and wrong and where the lines lay, and as usual I use sound to navigate. Explored via psychedelia, funk, indie, and alternative from all eras.
As Curtis Mayfield used to say, check out your mind.

#1740: I Hear Fake Voices

Strap in and take off!

#1739: Pounds Of Soul

Thanksgiving week is a busy time here in the U.S.  Lots of school events, family and friends visiting, travel and good lord the food prep. Here’s a lot of soul and funk, mostly vintage but some modern, with a sprig of psych and garage to keep it loud. Hope you have a great week, holiday or not!
Stay safe, stay weird!

#1738: Total Control

Some weeks are just weirder than others. My subconscious is trying to get a message across but I’m unclear as to what it’s supposed to be. That’s the way of life, you don’t get control of everything all the time. It’ll come out in the wash I suppose.

New tracks by The Fluids, Phalcons, JuJu, Birds, and more. If you’re in Brooklyn this week I’ll be at Legion Bar in Williamsburg on Weds 11/15 as Freelance Fiend. Bringing soul and psych to the party, let’s grab some beers and decipher these hidden messages together.

#1737: I Ain’t No Miracle Worker (live from El Cortez, Bushwick)

Over the weekend I got the opportunity to provide some digital stimulation between bands as Freelance Fiends at the Safari Room at El Cortez. Without calling anyone out I’ll say there weren’t a lot of people out that night. So I hit “record” and what you’re hearing tonight is an amalgam of the three sets I did that night.

Regular listeners will hear a lot they’ve heard on this show before, including recently. And this mix is a bit thinner than it sounded over the great sound system at El Cortez. But overall I think it’s a fun set and a chill way to spend my Saturday night. Big thanks to Super Bueno for inviting me out. Enjoy and have a safe, rad week!
