8 Songs 1 Show 3 Months Later

ep 78 – 8 songs 1 show 3 months later

I apologize for the lengthy absence, but I cannot say that it will not happen again.
 78 rpm

I’ve got a lengthy show for you, to make up for lost time, a bit. I wrote an article on some of the best albums of 2013 so far and I’m going to play some songs from those very albums (and perhaps some that were not mentioned). So, here’s the list:

I Come From the Mountain by Thee Oh Sees off the album Floating Coffin
You’re Different in Person by Pissed Jeans off the album Honeys
Teasin Ass Bitch by A Giant Dog off the album Bone
You Don’t Turn Down by Marnie Stern off the album The Chronicles of Marnia
 
part II
In Between by The Growlers off the album Hung at Heart
For Goodness Sake by Shannon and the Clams off the album Dreams in the Rat House
Heart by Gap Dream off the album Gap Dream
Before We Run by Yo La Tengo off the album Fade

Speedy Ortiz – Plough


SpeedyOrtiz_MA013-460x299
ep75 Speedy Ortiz – Plough

Speedy Ortiz is getting some love, and rightfully so. . . their album “Major Arcana” is very, very niiiice. The melodies attach themselves to your medulla oblongata and deposit gritty pebble sized guitar notes that you’ll have a difficult time srubbing clean. Be prepared to foster their grunge pop into your life for the foreseeable future, you will not be disappointed.

ep71 The Visibles – Trestled in Trees

A return to the music! The Visibles, a SF bay area band, released their self-titled debut LP this May and they open Season 4 of 1 Song 1 Show. Tucked away in the evergreens of Fairfax CA, The Visibles are a local favorite; and they have put out an impeccably produced album, hopefully one of many to come.

Happy Jawbone Family Band – Book of Fire


HappyJawboneFamilyBand
ep57 Happy Jawbone Family Band – Book of Fire

Happy Jawbone Family Band is as quirky as their name implies, and if I’ve learned anything about creative people, I’ve learned that they absolutely adore the moniker “quirky”. HJFB is not quirky, they are good. It is music that evokes and emotes. It puts me in a place distinctly within my mind and soul, a familiar place, a place that is comfortable, that is me- quirky. what.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Faded In the Morning


UMO
ep56 Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Faded in the Morning

Unknown Mortal Orchestra released II this year and are on the road until forever, check their site for when they’ll be in your town, and pick up the album because it needs you. They are groovy New Zealanders with a lo-fi psychedelic coating of awesome.
