#1809: Rain Dance

Turns out there’s a long history of people gathering together and yelling for change, and like the gods of old it’s arguable that anyone with the power to change things is competent enough or even cares to do so.  Here’s a slew of psych, funk, garage and more to keep your inner fire stoked.

#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.

#1802: Struggling For Air

My own personal, musical state of the union designed to keep you afloat.

All sorts of vintage ephemera and brand new tracks from Here Lies Man, Ty Segall, Ampline, River Cult, The Harlequins, plus a handful from Dizzybird Records outta Grand Rapids.

Keep your head up. Keep breathing.

#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.

#1734: Bronze Behavior

All-vinyl show this week!

It’s been a couple months. There’s dust on the mixer, my finger’s heavy on the FX knobs. I’m working out the kinks, trying out new things. Keeps you young.

I won’t be winning any gold medals for this one but you can hear fresh tunes from The Rubs, Buffalo Killers, All Them Witches, The Evil Usses, Bonehawk & JuJu. There’s also a heaping helping of vintage soul and rock to help stave off the weight of our world’s depravity.

I’ll be spinning vinyl as Freelance Fiend at El Cortez in Bushwick this Thurs 10/19. Come hang out if you like. Click the flier for more details…

#1732: Wandering Soul

This show was finished before the events in Las Vegas this week, but the first half of the show is geared towards catharsis for rough times so I hope it helps if only in a small way.
Lots of vintage and new soul as a nod to the late, great Charles Bradley. Plus new tracks from All Them Witches, Chicano Batman, and NYC folks The Fluids and Ancient Ocean.
Keep trying to bring some love and light into the world.

#1729: Mirror Of Illusion

The chatter in our information age feels intolerable.
On one hand, it brings to light issues that’ve been ignored for too long. On the other hand, it doesn’t seem like our minds are meant to process information this fast. Who could blame you for feeling overwhelmed?

Much love to folks in Houston this week. Here are some tunes to stop thinking about things for a couple hours.

#1727: Daylight Ripoff

For the first time in a long time the U.S. put aside differences for a brief moment to watch the sun go dark.  A cosmic event and a moment for reflection on where we fit in to the world and beyond.  It didn’t last long but it was nice to know so many people were enjoying something together.

The title of this week’s show reflects the cynicism that creeps back in after such moments, and as we move forward I thought we could explore the recent sounds of psych, garage and more.  Every song in this set was made after 2014, with many being new releases this year.  Hope you enjoy, and that this can suffice as another small moment where we enjoy something together.

#1720: Lord Of Garbage

“This isn’t about what is . . . it’s about what people think is. It’s all imaginary anyway. That’s why it’s important. People only fight over imaginary things.” – Neil Gaiman

#1711: New You

Back on track finally after being too sick to put a show together last week, and as I had to recover slowly this episode starts out a little mellow and then builds up to the full cacophony. New music from The Falling Birds, Elkhorn and White Hills and all the vintage gold you don’t know you love yet. Thanks for hanging with me, hope you dig the tunes!

#1710: Almost Grown

Chuck Berry finally shuffled off at the age of 90 this week and as a St. Louis native myself it’s sad to see him go. The first half hour today is all about sneaking a peek at some of his influence. Rest easy to one the most influential figures in rock and roll!

The rest of this week gives some love to Sly Stone for his birthday, Thin Lizzy for being Irish, some hard rockers and psych freakouts and BRAND NEW tracks from Sun Abduction, Pontiak, Entrance, Stuyedeyed, Kung Funghi, & Prana Crafter.  There’s even a preview of Riding Easy Records’ new Brown Acid comp!

Something for everybody is what I’m getting at. I’m gonna put my adult cares aside for a bit and rock out. Care to join me?
