Whose Show: Summer Reruns's Playlists
Silver Jews and Bryan Copland Live! Posted Aug. 10, 2019, 5:59 p.m.
There is a definite dichotomy between the first and second half of the show today. First half consists of a tribute to David Berman from Silver Jews and Purple Mountain. I included music from him as well as other talented Americana musicians. They are all worth checking out. The second half is somewhat of my normal things with noise rock and shoegaze before the talented Bryan Copland played a short set for us. Unfortunately, Youji.O song is not online. It's good I promise! Also, I would check out the Darkness and Cold music video it's pretty good and made me smile in these times
Here's an interesting story of Silver Jews album Natural Bridge
Anyways, Bryan Copland will be playing at the local pub Public House (Rolla) from 7 PM - 10 PM tonight!
Here's his socials if you're curious in checking him out!
His band Luna J.
No Interviews just Tunes Posted July 27, 2019, 5:59 p.m.
Hey everyone, so there is not a lot when it comes to interviews. I have been talking to some artists but I am taking it a little slow. I am still a graduate student after all >.>
A lot is here from mostly Lo-fi but there's shoegaze and "world" (mostly eastern European). But here's my choice picks for this week!! Good news, a lot of the bandcamp artists have pay-what-you want so there is a lot of good music for you to download (as well as stream prob). Bad news, Trasona five doesn't have all the tracks online so I put Estrogen blaster ????????????
Weatherday -- Comein
•A fun and loud lofi outing. It is similiar to Carseat Headrest but a bit noiser (My sputnik sweetheart is especially good :)
Emperor X -- Tectontic Membrane
•Cool dude and great music one of his earlier albums but still good
My Bloody Valentine -- Tremolo
•A Bahama sunset with goofy sampling of Balinda's vocals for Swallow (check out their EPs if you already haven't)
Bardo Pond -- Amanita
•These guys just keep releasing music in an already vast discography <>< - core
Emperor X Interview (Hot MO) Posted July 20, 2019, 6:01 p.m.
Here's the link to my interview with Chad Matheny aka Emperor X. He was a greater person to talk to and interview. He is a very interesting individual and singer/songwriter. Definitely the definition of Underrated.
Here's the link to the recording. Sorry for the quality I might look into doing more with it but this is the best I can do when I am on the ground.
Of course... here's the COVETED, SUPER OBJECTIVE, END ALL BE ALL Choice Picks for this week's show.
Emperor X -- Everything He's Released Seriously
Ultracherry Violet -- I Fall to Pieces
•A cool shoegaze/post-rock gem from Washington DC. Has the hardcore influence too making it a unique foray into. Only release by them unfortunately.
Diners -- "Three"
•Cute indie pop. Very short and to the point.
Telstar Drugs -- Sonatine
•I will keep on saying these guys are good until I get a copy of all their releases. (Which will probably be never RIP)
Grizzly Bear -- Yellow House
•The album from GB to first have Daniel Rossen. He's great and this album is great
Interview with Chris Hauer Posted July 13, 2019, 6 p.m.
(Picture Sourced from Chris's bandcamp)
Chris was an excellent person to interview and I had a great time talking to him. I was a bit nervous (especially in the beginning big oof) but here's the link to the show. It'll be public after the show.
Here's his socials if you want to follow. His insta is pretty good :)
Unfortunately, the Yoshio Suzuki track has been copystruck off of Youtube. Other songs are available to listen to but still big bummer.
AND HERE ARE MY CHOICE PICKS FOR THIS WEEK
Obligatory it's great! Chris Hauer -- Hum
<--------------------- Power Gap --------------------->
Cheesemind -- ??????? Bay Park Serenade
•It's a fun EP tries to mix Dream pop / Shoegaze music with some City Pop elements. Not perfect but something different! Plus the label Sango has the best logo possibly ever.
Tortoise -- TNT
•They're pretty good a not as "Kraut" as "Millions Now Living Will Never Die" but just as good (if not better :)
Camberwell Now -- The Ghost Trade (All's Well Comp)
•Underrated group by Charles Haywood after This Heat. Expect nice sea shanties and cool tunes
Stereolab Dots and Loops
•.. - .----. ... / .-. . .- .-.. .-.. -.-- / --. --- --- -.. / .. / .--. .-. --- -- .. ... . .-.-.-
Mid-Air Thief -- Crumbling
•The platform here doesn't like foreign characters. It's like progressive pop (a la Grizzly Bear) but much more electronic and goes that extra step. Very good!
California Tunes EXTRA CHONKY Posted July 6, 2019, 5:54 p.m.
FIrst show since my California trip. Had a great time visiting family and Yosemite (tooo many people though). You know the deal if you've been reading this here are my coolio choice picks.
But I am going to try to get some chats with Chris Hauer (who's open to it but is touring atm) and Emperor X (he liked my tweet so we're in) so look forward to that.
Eiichi Hayashi Trio + Solo -- Both Great SAX (No links maybe I'll upload to YT EYES)
The Magnetic Fields -- Tokyo a Go Go (Fun pop song and not from 69 love songs)
Suzanne Fox -- King Kong's Birthday Party (Cute songs somewhat gimmicky, blue dragon is really good though)
Mort Garson's Plantasia #Plantgang
