#1822: Argue Til We Die

2018’s been a little divisive but one thing’s for sure, a LOT of music has been released. Reissues, lost recordings, collections, and of course fresh material from old favorites and new. This is a small selection of what’s crossed my path so far in 2018. Some you’ll recognize, some you won’t, but it’s a wild ride. A fitting soundtrack to this mad year.

Keep it weird. Keep it LOUD.

#1821: Condition Your Condition

It’s a mad mad mad world but you can’t easily control what people do, you can only control what you do yourself. I, for instance, play records. It helps a little.

It’s all vinyl today with a blend of hard rock, alternative strangeness, high psych, and some protest songs near the end. All mixed to keep you moving, keep you going. Take a minute or two, take care of yourself.

#1820: Torn Curtain

Drop a tab of Ol’ Glory and let’s see if you recognize yourself when it’s all over. It’s a real trip.

Tons of vintage goodies plus fresh tracks from White Mystery, Kadhja Bonet, The Breeders, Captain Suun, the 86’s and of course new releases from Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. All curated for maximum aural pleasure and mind expansion.

#1819: Getting To Me

As James Brown said, we’re dealing with a very critical and crucial time. Aside from the overwhelming big picture there are plenty of folks out there who find their own personal picture too much to look at all at once. This mix is for those folks. For everyone, really.

It’s an all vinyl exploration of the dark inner places and their accompanying emotions and sentiments, presented without presenter interruption so you have plenty of room to stretch. If it helps you feel better, that’s great! If you’re still not okay, well, it’s okay to not be okay. I’m here to help you ride the wave.

#1818: REWILD!

Oh we make the standards and we make the rules
And if you don’t abide by them, you must be a fool
We have the power to control the whole land
You never must question our motives or plans

We’ll outlaw your voices, do anything we want
We’ve nothing to fear from the nation
We’ll kick you out your houses if you get too much
If we have to, we’ll destroy your generation
We’ve built up a frontage and we’ve gained respect
There’s no one to endanger our position

Standards rule OK

-The Jam

#1817: Feeling The Effects

WARNING: Prolonged exposure to modern America may result in media fatigue, depression, anxiety, confusion, cognitive dissonance, mood swings and even death.

Relief can be found via many methods, but allow me to offer this humble remedy. Vintage rock gods and soul soothers. Modern fuzz. Plus brand new tunes from White Mystery, Our Solar System, Captain Suun, The Death Wheelers and more.

It may only be a temporary respite from our long slide into madness but it may just help you get your grip.

#1813: High Tension Wire

It’s easy to get a little high strung in these uncertain times. You need a little release, fingers plucking the strings. Allow me to provide some catharsis.

New releases from White Mystery, Nova Flares, Stephen Bailey (Mt. Mountain), Sun Voyager, The Bonnevilles, Rat Scabies and a LOT more.

Let’s get loose.

#1810: Time Trap

This week is ALL VINYL as I exercise a little inner exploration. Mostly modern psych and rock riffs with vintage touches in the second hour. Hang on, dig deep, rock out.

#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!

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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…
