Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

October 23, 2017

0 Comments

A new album from the late Sharon Jones was recently announced, but I totally whiffed on it due to double ACLs.  Today I’m fixing that.  Below is the first single off of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ Soul Of A Woman, which is due out November 17.  It makes me miss her.  Enjoy.

Raised Eyebrows: Greatest Ladies II (Randy)

October 19, 2017

0 Comments

Last month I talked about some legendary female artists, and it was so much fun that I’d like to continue on with the theme. So for October, I’ll be focusing on some important contemporary female artists. Each one of them represent uniqueness and impending importance.

Courtney Barnett

Barnett’s perspective is singular. Rock is safe in her hands.

Julia Holter

Holter is a visionary. There is a willingness for exploration within her songs.

Broadcast

Trish Kennan created music that had unbelievable depth and range. She is missed.

Kara-Lis Coverdale

I am of the belief that Kara-Lis Coverdale should be as revered as some of the top shelf/legendary male ambient artists in the game. Go ahead and make a space between Basinski and Eno for KLC in the ambient legend category.

Georgia Hubley

Yes, Yo La Tengo have been around awhile. It doesn’t change the fact that Georgia is as important to music as Moe Tucker. Her voice and tenderness are beyond measure.

The Weather Station

Tamara Hope has a way. Her delivery is unlike anyone else. Her lyrics and voice are a perfect union of rough and smooth.

Pauline Oliveros

Oliveros passed away last November at the age of 84. She was a pioneer in the realms of electronic and 20th century classical musics. Her work will continue to stand the test of time. An incredible artist.

Matana Roberts

Roberts is a poet, a musician, an improviser, and a storyteller. Her music is beyond whatever genre you can throw at it. She’s creating a sonic quilt where each new record is connected to the last.

Mary Lattimore

A harpist from Philly that creates openings to other worlds with arcane compositions.

Noveller

Sarah Lipstate makes lands of clear colors with offset guitars and endless imagination.

Sleater-Kinney

7-inches for Planned Parenthood, which is a curated series of 7-inch records that benefits Planned Parenthood, has set some release dates.  A digital version is coming on October 20, and a physical box set will be out on November 17.  That’s neat.  What I also really like about this news is that it came with a an unreleased track from Sleater-Kinney’s No Cities To Love sessions.  Turn it up!  Enjoy.

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

October 13, 2017

0 Comments

The month of October typically leads me to drop a list of Halloween classics to scare your friends away from your booze during that swanky costume party, but I decided since I had done it so many times already I would instead opt for shameless self-promotion. If you never noticed before, I host a show called NO CONTROL Radio – it’s old school, terrestrial radio, late night and it jams, but I also decided a few years back to go into podcasting, with a good friend of mine nicknamed Godless, and start putting band interviews there. We feel that we do a pretty good job, not only talking to artists, but choosing the best of the best to talk to and about. We podcasted for a website for a few years, but struck out on our own in 2017 with THE METAL PODCAST.  We have a new episode pretty much every Monday with the brightest metal people in the genre talking about some of the darkest things you can imagine. I am pretty proud of it honestly, and this month I included a playlist of just the last few bands we interviewed on our proverbial couch. Check out the tunes and if you like them, listen to the interesting interviews behind them at www.themetalpodcast.com.

The Go! Team

Just the other week I spent some time listening to The Go! Team, and that left me wondering if they were done or whatnot.  Nope!  They’re still at it.  In fact, the act just announced a new album, Semicircle, and today I’m sharing its title track.  Naturally, it’s a joyous affair.  Here’s hoping they come to Austin soon.  Enjoy.

You know who I’ve really been loving even more than usual in 2017?  Spoon.  Not only is their new album, Hot Thoughts, a real good one, but their live shows have been fantastic.  I’ve seen them four times so far this year, and in each set the band has been looser and more confident than ever before.  You should get in on this by going to their ACL Late Night Show at Stubb’s this Friday.  Somehow someway tickets are still available, so grab one or four and go have a lot of fun with Spoon.

Tickets are $28 in advance of the show, $30 the day of.  Mondo Cozmo will open.

PS – The band is also at ACL this weekend.  You can see them on the Miller Lite Stage from 7pm to 8pm on Saturday.

Who Is She?

October 10, 2017

2 Comments

My head is still a little fuzzy from weekend one of ACL, so I got up this morning in search of something simple and catchy.  This led me to Who Is She?, a supergroup that features Julia Shapiro (Chastity Belt, Childbirth), Robin Edwards (Lisa Prank) and Bree Mckenna (Tacocat, Childbirth). They’re jangly and I really dig them.  Enjoy.

It would appear that The Breeders are legit back.  That’s neat.  I dig their new track, which is apparently a part of a 7″ series that will be rolling out this year.  Hopefully a new album is on the way as well.  Enjoy.

Show Of The Week

October 4, 2017

I’m excited about The Courtneys at the Mohawk tonight, Whitney at Antone’s tomorrow, and – of course – ACL this weekend, but the one show that’s really popping on the calendar for me this week is Chelsea Wolfe at the Paramount on Friday.  This, I imagine, is somewhat because I can’t go (dang it!), but I’m mainly going to attribute my high interest in it to how Wolfe has a huge, commanding sound that I’m certain will sound amazing at the Paramount. Go see her!  By the way, while you’re there, be sure to snag a copy of her heavy new album, Hiss Spun.

Tix are $28.  Youth Code will open.

The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage are set to roll out their new album, The Wild, on October 13.  I didn’t think there would be another single before its release (there’s already been three other ones), but the band just set one free.  It may be my favorite track that’s been put out so far.  Enjoy.
