Modcast #422: Faves of 2018

12/31/2018
More
This is it, the end of another year. 2018 is bowing out and 2019 is stepping up to the plate. This past year was a pretty damn good one for new music. So much so that it's taken me weeks to really filter through the crop and pick just the ripest bits of tasty musical fruit. Tons of good bands simply didn't make the cut, not because they didn't produce good stuff, but just because I only have one more hour this year and so you're going to get just the tastiest bits. The bands that didn't...

Modcast #420: And On And On And On

12/12/2018

Here we are twenty plus years past the heyday of Britpop and the internets are all atwitter wondering whether or not we're having a Britpop revival. Can you really revive something that never died? Maybe it's more of a Britpop resuscitation. Either way I settle the debate and put the question of a Britpop revival to bed on an all new, supersized modcast.

Here we are nearing the end of the year and entering into holiday season. So, no holiday music! Just a whole bunch of great songs that I've been wanting to play on and off for a while.

Welly, welly, well, sirs, here it is. Start. Stop. Turn it off and back on again maybe it will work. Lo, and behold the modcast is back up and running after some behind the scenes technical difficulties with my host, Podomatic. I don't know if it makes me feel better to know it wasn't just me that suffered, but most all of those who use Podomatic. But no matter everything seems to be back online and in order.

Jazz has always played a big part of the mod lifestyle, indeed it was arguably the founding sound of the original mods. Over the years R&B, soul, power pop and other musical styles have become even more dominant in some ways. But elements of jazz always have been and always will be a mainstay of mods the world over. I'm not a deep jazz cat by any means, but I like jazz. I've got lots of jazz favorites like from the early stuff like Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, and Count Basie, and of...
