Random Old Records Podcast #54

Another month has passed, and Random Old Records Podcast has returned with another hour's worth of jams! Earlier in the year, I acquired the amazing 3 disc compilation on Cherry Red Records called Dust On The Nettles. This set goes deep into the UK's psychedelic folk scene, from big names like Pentangle, Fairport Convention, and Vashti Bunyan, to complete obscurities. This is a genre I knew very little about, and it totally blew my mind open! Also, my favorite artist of 2015, Ryley Walker, just released his brand new album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung, and it is loaded with way out folk explorations as well.

On episode #54, "The Roundabout" by Walker mingles with tracks from Dust On The Nettles, along with other folky favorites from the time period by Ramases and Mike Cooper. You will also hear brand new tracks from old favorites Night Beats and Klaus Johann Grobe, a sizzling jam from Columbus' Counter Intuits (featuring Ron House from Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments!), and more from The Lavender Flu double LP. Whether you love the rays of the August sun, or dream of a dank, air-conditioned pit, or you like long, languid jams, or dig snappy singalongs, there's something for you here. As always, thanks for listening!
