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.

Among other things, we’ve got fresh releases from Dustin Lovelis, Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, Porno Wolves and some serious vintage riffery.
Good luck out there. Keep your head up.

A rough week for losses in the rock world. This week has a bit of a country & blues tinge to it in honor of the late Gregg Allman and also a highlight of the bands playing this week’s Chris Cornell tribute brought to you by Rocker Stalker and myself (info below.) Still plenty of garage and psych nuggets for you to sink in to. Have a great week and keep it LOUD.

About a year ago I stumbled on Baked’s first LP, Debt, on Bandcamp and was immediately hooked by their mix of melodic psych, muscular shoe gaze and grungy fuzz.
I was lucky enough to meet up with their singer/guitarist R.J. Gordon last week to talk about the release of the second LP Farnham, his history as a touring musician and sound engineer, and a whole host of other random topics. Peppered throughout are tracks from both records by Baked plus new stuff from local BK acts mixed with some vintage noise for flavor. It was a laid back time and I enjoyed myself a lot. I hope that you do, too. If you do, please, tell a friend.
Check out Baked at their release show, and follow them on the web:

It’s a new year, here’s hoping you’re doing well so far. Here are my five favorite vinyl records currently in my collection. Hope you enjoy, if you do please share, and go out in the world and kick some ass.
- Beck – Sea Change (2002)
- Silberbart – 4 Times Sound Razing (1971)
- Charles Albright – Weight 7″ (2011)
- Coke Weed – Mary Weaver (2015)
- Neil Young – Tonight’s The Night (1975)
It’s a long one, so I split it into two parts:
Back in June of 2012 when I started Old Time Religion as a podcast to send to my friends, I never thought it’d last this long. All of the music discovered and friends to share it with over the last four years have enriched my life in a lot of ways, and I’m glad to meet up with all of you each week and jam to some great music.
This week’s special runs the gamut: Four hours of vintage tracks from all genres and modern bands bringing the old sounds into the present and beyond. Every label I’ve shouted out is represented here, and no matter your taste there’s something to tickle your fancy. Hell, maybe you’ll find you had a ticklish spot you didn’t know about.
Thanks for the support these last few years, and here’s to hundreds more shows spent with you!

The time has come to close out another season of the show as we head into a brand new year. 2015 was a lot of fun for OTRRH, and to celebrate I put together a fun set of the vintage tunes that caught my ears this week and some of the new discoveries I made over the past year.
Have a fun, safe holiday and here’s to another year gone, another to come. I’ll see you in a few weeks to kick off season 4!

After last week’s super-heavy Halloween show I needed a break from heavy metal, so this week’s a grab bag of vintage and modern soul, psychedelic, garage and a heavy nod to the film Velvet Goldmine at the beginning. Dig in and get down!

It was my great pleasure to speak with Chicago’s own White Mystery as they head into Brooklyn tonight to play a late-night gig at the Acheron (show details here). Miss Alex White shared what it’s like to be on tour pretty much all of the time, running a business from the road and what’s to come for her and her brother Francis as they continue their 10-year mission to rock the world.
To set the stage there’s a mix of vintage soul, blues and garage from Chicago groups and a nice lead-in of crazy, heavy psych. Many thanks to White Mystery for chatting with me, and big thanks to all of you for listening.
