#1829: Aphotic Blues

The word aphotic in latin means “without light” and is used to describe that place in the ocean where light can’t penetrate. Sometimes our worlds can feel that way, and we seek out what makes us feel good. For me, among other things, it’s electric guitar and a badass backbeat.

Blues has always been a way out of that deep darkness, so this week’s all about music that’s grown from the blues with the hope it’ll keep you above water. Hope you like it.

#1828: Gatherings

We’re group animals, and we love patterns and stories to share. Music is just spiritual stories, so let’s meet around the fire and get this ritual going.

Some wild psychedelia and unique vintage incantations peppered with fresh offerings from Netherlands, Kikagaku Moyo, Idles, All Them Witches, ACCU and more.

#1824: Like It Is, Like It Was

Lots of contrast and comparison going on between our time and 50 or so years ago. Everyone always thinks it’ll be better later, or that it was better then. Personally, I think right now is the most immediate concern.

This week’s a bit random, a hearty helping of vintage tunes peppered with some modern noise for an aural guide to exploring your inner mind. Enjoy!

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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!
