playlist for five & dime show 16-september-2010 wmse 91.7

howdy.   a few quick things worth mentioning, and then i’ll get to the play list.    i’m listening right now to neil youngs’ new record as i type this…..due out very soon, produced by daniel lanois……pretty great thus far, i think i’m three songs in right now.   they are streaming it on npr’s website until it’s release date, you should check it out.   apparently, it’s done without any overdubs through the magic that only daniel lanois can provide………

also, can’t stop thinking/talking about the new black angels record, phosphene dream.    it’s phenomenal.   really.     they’ve managed to reign in their wandering ways ( not that i mind a long song )…..the record clocks in at just over 35 minutes if i’m not mistaken, and to my ears it’s nearly perfect.     can’t wait for october 27th when they play in my hometown…..right here in milwaukee, at turner hall.   cheap show too, only $10.00 to get in……..let’s fill the place so it sounds great.     also digging the sounds of their guitarist….christian bland.   he also has a record out with his band, the revelators.   i picked it up on the austin psych fest website……it’s a bit more lo-fi than the black angels, but easily as good as anything they’ve done.     check it out, it’s very limited, so get one fast.

lastly, i’ll be filling in for tom wanderer on the 7th of october…….from 3pm to 6pm.   it’s his monthly 45rpm show, and i will abide.   very excited about this, as i don’t typically play a lot of 45’s, even though i have a ton of them……perhaps literally a ton, haven’t ever considered weighing them…….anyway, tune in, it should be interesting.

playlist for five & dime show 2-september-2010 wmse 91.7

hello again.    this particular show was of the themed variety, as i am prone to do sometimes.   the theme was ‘for the ladies…..’, with each song containing a girls’ name in the title.   it was fun to put together, and fun to present.    while i didn’t seem to have an abundance of leftover songs, i do plan on doing another installment of this theme in the future……stay tuned.   dori, who follows my show on thursdays, will do an all boys’ name theme following the next installment…….should be cool.

two things i would like to mention that i am particularly excited about as i write this post.   first, the black angels will release their third full length on the 14th of september, next tuesday……i would encourage you to seek that one out.    it can be pre-ordered now on their website, check it out at   secondly, they just announced that they will be playing turner hall on the 27th of october……with an unnamed as of right now opening act…….keep that night open for sure, as some of you may remember how great their live set was at the mad planet a couple years ago.   i’ve seen them a few times, and am really excited for this show……i will see you there.
