Random Old Records Podcast #79

Happy 2020! I got married in 2019 which was pretty incredible, but otherwise the year was mighty rough in all sorts of ways for all sorts of people. Luckily, music continues to be amazing and it always seems to be there to lift everyone back up when they need it the most. EPISODE #79 of Random Old Records Podcast is here to start off the new year right with an hour of that sweet, sweet musical nectar!

Loveland, Ohio-based Colemine Records was the hands-down label of the year, putting out a steady string of soulful and thoughtful LPs and 45s. So, it makes sense to feature a stack of jams from their catalog, including the Harlem Gospel Travelers, Thee Sinseers, and Black Pumas. Vivian Girls came back after a long absence with an incredible new album, and you will also hear the crucial "I'm Far Away" on this episode (plus more in the future, it's REALLY good). In between, there are a bunch of new and old jams from Opal, Possible Humans, Chromatics, Death and Vanilla, plus so much more. You might have also noticed that a bunch of older episodes have been added to the feed, and more are on the way, so stay tuned for more vintage shows and great new stuff in 2020!

Random Old Records Podcast #78

2019 is nearly over, and I don't feel like doing a best of the year playlist, so I figured the next best thing to do would be to go back in time! EPISODE #78 is the annual 5/10/15/20 episode of Random Old Records, which surveys the best or most interesting music from 5, 10, 15, and 20 years ago.

1999 features emo and pop punk from Saves The Day, American Football, and the Get Up Kids, while 2004 brings indie anthems from Aloha and Panthers. Going back 10 years to 2009, you'll hear classic garage pop from Grass Widow, Strange Boys, and King Automatic, and 2014 finishes things up with dreamy psych by The Paperhead and the Allah-Las. 2020 will bring more brand new jams to Random Old Records, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy the retro ride!

Random Old Records Podcast #77

I was in a mellow mood most of the summer, but I've been stockpiling a bunch of hot, raging punk rock jams and it's time to finally let them all out! EPISODE #77 of Random Old Records contains 26 big tracks of floor-stomping, bow-throwin' rock n' roll for just about everyone.

It's got classics by Lagwagon and Alkaline Trio, recent heat from Steve Adamyk Band, Trampoline Team, and Fried Egg, long-time ROR favorites like Dead Ghosts and Night Beats, bleeding-edge hardcore from Electric Chair and Terrorist, and it all finishes up with a thunderous set of new and old glam-rock stompers. If this one doesn't get you up and going, then you just need to listen again!

Random Old Records Podcast #76

Hey folks I'm back! EPISODE #76 of Random Old Records is a soundtrack for this strange and unsettling summer. It doesn't make a lot of sense but there's plenty of good stuff to keep you entertained and keep you thinking, at least I hope so!

The show kicks off with a mix of modern soul from Durand Jones and the Indications and Kelly Finnigan, plus recently reissued heat from the Nat Turner Rebellion and a classic from the Dramatics. It flows into a lot of new stuff from all over the place, including tracks by Purple Mountains (RIP David Berman), Nicole Yun, Cate Le Bon, Juan Wauters, Pleasure Leftists, and a whole bunch more. It's hot and tense sometimes, and fresh and easygoing in other places. Enjoy!!

Random Old Records Podcast #75

2019 has been one of the most exhausting years on record, at least it feels that way as June comes to a close.

Download it to your device of choice and get ready for 58 minutes and 42 seconds of jams for the heart and soul.

You'll hear brand new music from the legendary Meat Puppets, who just released one of their best albums 30 years into their run, power pop from The Resonars and Julian Leal, new and old dreamy psychedelic pop from The Third Eye, Garcia Peoples, and Olden Yolk, classics from Sir Douglas Quintet and Barbara Manning, plus so so much more. This episode is dedicated to everyone out there just getting by and trying their best. I hope you enjoy it!

Random Old Records Podcast #74

It's a couple weeks later than I wanted, but Random Old Records is finally back! EPISODE #74 is a little bit messy. It's silly and sad, loud and soft, joyous and tense, goofy and awkward. Some of the transitions are a bit rough. There's some stuff here that sounds a little out-of-place if you're expecting hard-edged garage punk. Don't let all of that scare you off though, it's still loaded with jams!

#74 kicks off with a set of classic Britpop, finishing up a with fresh track from Lush/Elastica/Moose supergroup Piroshka, then careens from electronic pop by Yumi Zouma to long-awaited new music from Australian punks UV Race, to blistering rage from Control Top, to sweet piano pop from Girl Ray, to old-school Random Old Records favorites like People's Temple and Teledrime, to a whole bunch more new and old rock n' roll. It's one of the most frantic and emotional episodes I've ever done, so enjoy the ride!

Random Old Records Podcast #73

Hey folks, it's time for a brand new Random Old Records Podcast! EPISODE #73 starts out punk rock, ends up pop, and takes a lot of wild detours in between. The original playlist for this one was over four hours, and it took a lot of work to get it down to 59 minutes and 37 seconds. Let's dive in!

The punk rock comes from classic tracks by Pansy Division and Sado-Nation and newer jams by BB And The Blips and Negative Scanner. The pop goes all the way back to the Everly Brothers and forward to some brand new Swervedriver, and there's a nice gooey middle with hooky goodness from Colleen Green, The Beths, The Bombpops, and many, many more. In between all the heat, you'll hear excerpts from the classic 60s head movie The Committee, starring Paul Jones of Manfred Mann! Check it out, and I hope y'all dig it!!

Random Old Records Podcast #72

Hey folks, Random Old Records is back for its 11th year! EPISODE #72 is nearly a full hour of that classic rock n' roll beat presented in a wide variety of styles and eras, from the 50s to just a few weeks ago. That's a convoluted and verbose way to say: the one's got some serious JAMS!

Kicking off with "Mystery Action", the last released tune from the legendary Rezillos, ROR #72 offers up power-pop-punk tracks from Tweens, Terry and Louie, and Midnite Snaxxx, loud indie jangle from Salad Boys, The Driscolls, For Against, and Dark Blue, vintage rockin' country from Porter Wagoner and the Farmer Boys, and almost a dozen more hitters from all points in between.

Random Old Records Podcast #71

Hey folks, welcome to the last Random Old Records podcast of 2018! EPISODE #71 jumps wildly from genre to genre, equally divided between music for dancing and dreaming.

Colemine Records out of Loveland, Ohio has been modestly releasing the best vintage-sounding soul music all year long. The beginning of this episode highlights tracks by Ben Pirani and Wesley Bright and the Honeytones along with some rare '60s and '70s soul stompers. It moves on to more classic sounds from recent compilations, including garage rock from The Collectors and sunshine pop from The Carnival Connection, then back to the present day with jangle from The Weather Station and The Stroppies, bionic synth grooves from Vive La Void and Klaus Johann Grobe, plus a whole lot more!

Random Old Records Podcast #70

This month, I felt a sudden shock of inspiration and this podcast seemed to appear instantly out of thin air! EPISODE #70 of Random Old Records started like many past ones have, with a song that I couldn't get out of my head.

In this case, it was the first track off the classic 1997 album by The Promise Ring, Nothing Feels Good. "Is This Thing On?" lit a spark in me that led to a set of incredible late '90s post-hardcore emo-punk-pop from Jets To Brazil, Superchunk, and others. From there, the episode flows into a bunch of recent jams from One Eleven Heavy, Shannon and the Clams, Exploded View, Mountain Movers, Dreamend, and so much more. If you like raw post-punk, rootsy guitars, and/or dreamy drones, there's something for you here, plus you'll get wild excerpts from the 1960 sci-fi classic Amazing Transparent Man!
