#1825: The Sun Is Burning

The heat’s up (more than usual in some places) and here’s a mix made for getting your head out of the haze. Or further into it, whatever works.

Stay cool if you can.

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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.

#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.

#1640: Live Another Day (feat. Casey Hopkins)

It was my great pleasure after this long and maddening week to have the enthusiastic Brooklyn blues-rocker Casey Hopkins in the studio this week.  All blues-adjacent tunes graced the decks along with some funk and garage on the side, and Casey and I jawed about where he’s from, where he’s going, and everything in between.

Special nod to the late Leonard Cohen, one of Canada’s finest and the latest in a line of greats we’ve lost this year.  Rest easy, Leonard.

Casey and I will both be at Garage Land (at Good Room) Wednesday 11/30 along with Paul Collins (The Beat, The Nerves), David Strange, Skunkmello and Lord Youth.

Get Casey’s tunes at his Bandcamp site, and follow his hilarious takeover of Pentatonic Guitars’ Instagram.

#1635: Fresh Cream (feat. The Falling Birds)

Amid many shades of rock and the blues I welcome The Falling Birds back to the show today. We talk about their new EP, what it was like touring the UK, the bands they’re listening to, and our shared gig coming up at Good Room in Greenpoint (click for more info…)
For all the good stuff from the fellas, head to TheFallingBirds.com
