Holiday Mix Tape - Volume 2

12/22/2017
More
We figured out somewhere along the way that our Holiday Mixtape show wasn't an annual tradition, actually. Mostly because we skipped doing it last year altogether. In retrospect, it's probably better this way:

The Decendents - Milo Goes To College

12/18/2017
More
Going to college—in and of itself, sans context—isn't entirely remarkable. Literally thousands of people do it.

Duration: 00:51:56


The Cure - Bloodflowers

12/12/2017
More
It's kind of a trick question: when your band sounds a little gloomy to begin with, how can your audience tell when you're despondent?

Wand - Plum

11/25/2017
More
Start by forgetting all you think you know.

Dream Syndicate - How Did I Find Myself Here?

11/21/2017
More
Let's get into the Dream Syndicate (or perhaps not, as they didn't get into much of anything from the years 1989-2012).

Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow

10/10/2017
More
By now, we're familiar with the Blackalicious mojo: Gift of Gab throwing obsessive, complicated rhymes over the steady propulsive backbeat dropped by one Chief Xcel, a formula that's earned the pair accolades.

Cracker - Kerosene Hat

8/25/2017
More
Whatever you think of Cracker -- they've been the subject of chart busting platitudes and some indie derision alike -- it's hard to understate the importance of David Lowery's contribution to popular music.

Jerry Reed - The Essential Jerry Reed (1995)

8/16/2017
More
SON! Pioneer of "trucker country," Jerry Reed, turns out, falls in my sweet spot. The man was rapping (albeit with a country twang) before that was a thing, could finger-pick his way out of a wet burlap sack, and was pretty damn funny while doing so.

Uncle Tupelo - No Depression

7/10/2017
More
Few bands can claim to have at least in some part founded a genre (in this case, alt-country, a.k.a. "y'all-ternative"), but in this instance it's apt. I've heard so many bands with lineage from this it's hard to quantify.

The Lemon Twigs - Do Hollywood

5/7/2017
More
If you peer into the festival hero shot of Michael D’Addario leaping through the roof of The Lemon Twigs' SXSW showcase, you'll note the giant X on his hand: despite the fawning praise, D'Addario, brother Brian and company might be primed to break big this year (they won SXSW's Grulke Prize for Best New Act) -- but they're still not old enough to drink.

Joy Division - Closer

4/16/2017
More
At this point, it can be difficult to separate the legend of Joy Division from an honest account of either of their (intentional) releases, but here is what we know: on the eve of their first American tour with The Buzzcocks, frontman Ian Curtis hung himself in his kitchen. Technically, that's where Joy Division ends.

Super Amazing 100th Episode Mixtape OMFGLOL!

4/3/2017
More
It’s probably best that we’re not eighteen forever. Evidence to that effect: the simple mixtape doesn’t quite cut it for us anymore. For this show, we each picked a track from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s to get to know a little bit better, with curious results.

Otis Redding - Otis Blue

2/20/2017
More
Laid down in one 24-hour recording session like the man knew he was on borrowed time, Otis Redding Blue sounds as immediate and timeless as it did in its heyday.

The Radio Dept. - Passive Aggressive

2/10/2017
More
You could spend all day making mix-tapes of Abba or Cardigans songs, but instead let me propose this. You should maybe consider listening to this episode of Somebody Likes It wherein we discuss the album "Passive Agressive" by Swedish band Radio Dept.

Pinegrove - Cardinal

2/6/2017
More
Somewhere, embedded in the occasionally cracked warble of Evan Stephens Hall (which sounds like the name of a room they might play), Montclair, NJ's Pinegrove caught stride with 2016's Cardinal release.

Dolly Parton - Jolene

1/18/2017
More
It would be hard to overstate the prolific nature/work ethic/buxom beauty/absolute sweetheart nature of this week's subject of Somebody Likes It, one Ms. Dolly Parton, with her 1973 record "Jolene."

Songs: Ohia - Magnolia Electric Company

1/9/2017
More
Prolific singer-songwriter Jason Molina released 19 albums, more than a dozen EPs, and many singles between 1997 and his death in 2013. This week, we give a listen to the 7th and final release under the moniker Songs: Ohia; Magnolia Electric Company.

Anderson.Paak - Malibu

12/16/2016
More
Not all artists who grow up under dubious circumstances emerge as groundbreakers on the other side, but essentially, that's at least one dimension of Anderson.Paak's multifaceted rise.

Beach Slang - The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us

12/9/2016
More
Outside of the empirical truism that 'Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas' is an amazing song title (and that's not even arguable), Beach Slang are a study in certain contrasts and other constant consistencies

Gang of Four - Entertainment!

11/28/2016
More
Any band that can take a stance against “rubbish” vs. “rubbers” to turn down a slot on “Top of the Pops” has my vote.
