Random Old Records Podcast #83

Dreams, dreaming, and dreamy music is the order of the day. Everything is transforming and reality is realer than ever, and I find myself closing my eyes and dreaming of dinner at my favorite restaurant, a quick browse at the record store, and a stop at the Creamy Whip on the way home. EPISODE #83 of Random Old Records Podcast might not include any Moby Grape this time around, but it's still filled with music dedicated to good dreams and things that make you happy.

This trip around the land of nod includes a touch of the psychedelic, plenty of insistent drum beats, sawing strings, soaring synths, a little mysticism, a little drama, and vocal harmonies out the wazoo. You'll hear new and old jams from Once And Future Band, Honeybus, Riki, Yumi Zouma, Wax Idols, The Crabs, John Foxx, Cold Beat, and so much more. In between the songs, you will hear bits from the 1974 movie Mr. Sycamore, a wacky slice of vintage new age nonsense about a man who wants to become a tree. Plant your feet, grab some water, and let this episode be the soundtrack!

Random Old Records Podcast #82

You know what? Music is the best. Not only that, but music is still the best and will continue to be the best no matter how awful things might seem. I've felt just about as helpless as most of you probably feel right now and I can't change the world, but I can sure as hell play a little music for everyone. EPISODE #82 of Random Old Records Podcast is a 58 minute and 19 second blast of fun punk rock escapism for all of the kids in America.

You will hear classics by The Muffs, Pointed Sticks, and Young Canadians, brand new jams from Shadow Show, Personality Cult, The Archaeas, and The Bombpops, plus a whole lot more. I tried to keep it fun and silly, but there's rage and sadness and stolen joy and noise and darkness and catharsis and peace in there as well. Log out of social media, throw the newspaper in the trash, and listen to some damn music instead. Remember? Music is the best!

Random Old Records Podcast #81

Wow what a year it's been already, huh?! If you're looking for some low-stakes joy and relief from dealing with life here on Earth in 2020 AD, you've come to the right place. EPISODE #81 of Random Old Records Podcast is stacked with good music and escapism, so slam that download button right now!

I've been in a deep country phase ever since watching the Ken Burns documentary last year, so this episode starts off with some classics from Dottie West and Mike Nesmith, plus honky tonk rarities from Johnny David and Joyce Cobb. My other obsession lately has been Various Artists box sets from the Cherry Red group, so I also highlighted some jams by The Tremoloes and Byzantium from the incredible Getting It Together In The Country collection of UK country rock. As if the theme wasn't crystal clear, the interstitial sounds in this episode come from the 1967 stock cars n' moonshine epic Hell On Wheels, starring country legend Marty Robbins! You'll also hear recent jams from Holly Golightly, Paint, Parsnip, En Attendant Ana, and a whole lot more. This is a fun one, so stay indoors and check it out!

Random Old Records Podcast #80

Winter is rolling on and I can't believe another month has already passed. January brought my 40th birthday, and now it's time for EPISODE #80 of Random Old Records Podcast. Thanks for checking in, I think this one is something great, so let's not waste time!

I've been a huge fan of the podcast You Don't Know Mojack, which has been doing deep dives into the SST Records discography for a few years now. So, this episode kicks off with some songs from the label's heyday by Das Damen and Firehose, plus a track from the same era from Cincinnati punks The Erector Set. This comes from the INCREDIBLE compilation We Were Living In Cincinnati, which collects rare punk from my hometown and was released by the ever dependable Hozac Records. Get it now! After that hot start, you will hear old and new pop, both indie and power, from the likes of Tacocat, Comet Gain, Crabby Appleton, Prix, The Pandoras, and so much more.

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!

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. It's my hope that EPISODE #75 of Random Old Records is a little sunshine in all of this rain, a little escapism from the tough and angry world outside, a little bit of fun and relief from all this work. 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!
