#1808: Raw Dealings

Welcome to the first episode of Old Time Religion to air on Brooklyn’s The Face Radio!  Big love to Kurtis Powers (who also got the show on at Affinity Radio) for having me, and to all the listeners new and old who join in each week.

This week’s gonna sound familiar to my long time listeners.  It’s a primer for the new ears, a mix of all the old and new punk, psych, stoner, funk and more that defines Old Time Religion.   Old stuff, new stuff, damn good stuff.  Enjoy, and welcome!

#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!

Stay safe, stay weird!
