PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 04.05.2012

The traffic was back to normal last night and the show went off without a hitch. It’s chock full of new music from the likes of McDougall, The Grand Tetons, The Parlor Soldiers, Lucero and Arliss Nancy. I also played a fantastic track off the new Counting Crows album that’s a cover of Kasey Anderson’s “Like Teenage Gravity” which is immediately followed by a track off Kasey’s upcoming album. Sound good? I thought so, so put your ears on the archived stream of the show.

Also, next week’s show is the marathon show. Ninebullets Radio has 60 minutes to raise $1600 dollars. We’ve never missed a marathon goal which is something I think is a source of pride for both, the show and it’s listeners.

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 24 (SOME OF THE BEST OF 2011):

Originally, the podcast and Ninebullets Radio were supposed to (mostly) feature different songs. Then, I was asked to do an extra hour on the show at the last minute and the two ended up being extremely similar track listings. Sorry about that but look at it like this; in a week the archive of the radio show will be gone forever but the podcast is available (for better or worse) forever.

The Episode 24 podcast will ring out 2011 here on ninebullets. In preparation for this show I literally (yes, I am properly using the word) collected 50+ songs I wanted to play and set out to make a podcast. I say that so you know that this isn’t a “best songs of the year” show, so much as a “some of my favorite songs of the year” show. Some made this podcast but most didn’t…not because they were inferior songs, mind you, they just didn’t fit the flow of the show.

Believe it or not, I do try to maintain even flows throughout these things and avoid too many whiplash tempo changes. Had I made the podcast the day before or the day after I did, it probably would have turned out very, very differently. But I didn’t, and these are the songs that I chose and I’m done apologizing/explaining.

So, here are some of my favorite tracks of 2011 in podcast form. Everyone be safe over the long weekend, nurse your hangovers with the hair of the dog and college bowl games, and we’ll see you come 2012 (the final year of our planet?). . As always, below you’ll find the track listing for the show. Please tell your friends and Facebook/Twitter followers about it, I’ll greatly appreciate it.

Track Listing:

01. Frank Turner – I Still Believe (from England Keep My Bones)
02. The Decemberists – Down By The Water (from The King Is Dead)
03. Old Man Markley – Letterman (from Guts ‘N Teeth)
04. The Porter Draw – Davey (from California Widow)
05. Chuck Ragan – Nomad By Fate (from Covering Ground)
06. Matt Woods – Beating Down My Door (from The Matt Woods Manifesto)
07. Have Gun Will Travel – To The Victor Go The Spoils (from Mergers & Acquisitions)
08. Lauderdale – Moving On (from Moving On)
09. Kaleigh Baker – The Weight Of It all (from The Weight Of It All)
10. JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound – Want More (from Want More)
11. Glossary – A Shoulder To Cry On (from Long Live All Of Us)
12. The Builders & The Butchers – All Away (from Dead Reckoning)
13. Deep Dark Woods – The Places I’ve Left Behind (from The Place I Left Behind)
14. Chuck Allen Floyd – Hard Times (from Schedule A)

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 23

How y’all doing? It’s been a little while since we did one of these. I wish I had a real excuse but, to be honest, I don’t. I felt the pressure of doing a weekly radio show and as a result, the podcast got pushed to the background. Well, that’s not the case any longer and with that said, let’s focus on this show and not the missed shows of the past few months.

Once again out good friend from the Northwest, Lollyrae, sent us some beers and I went to drinking them during the podcast. You may remember that we did this once before and I was a little mixed on the results. While I did not get slurring drunk during this show I think I did a much better job describing the beers and making the trying of the beers a part of the show. I hope y’all think so too.

Speaking of the show. We’ve lots of good new stuff as well as some tunes you’re probably already quite familiar with. The show opens with a cover of Tom Petty’s “Refugee” by The Gaslight Anthem that I think rivals the original. Some of the other standout tracks include; Merle Haggard proving he still has it, Hellbound Glory showing there’s more to them than drug songs, Have Gun Will Travel showing there will be no sophomore slump with Mergers & Acquisitions, Shooter Jennings sending the pop country boys a message and Scott Hiram Biram doing what he does so well.

All that’s left is to press play on the music. So get to it and as always, if you like what you’re hearing on these podcasts, tell your friends about it. Post about it on your Facebook wall. Tweet about it. These bands are all pretty small so every new ear their music find counts, and you can directly assist them in that effort by telling people about this podcast and others like it.

THE DECEMBERISTS – THE KING IS DEAD


First, let it be known that I’m not a Decemberists fan. In fact, I’m probably what the kids these days call “a hater” when it come to The Decemberists. Through the years they’ve done many things to me. With Picaresque they bored me. On Crane’s Wife, because of all the DBT references the media made, they annoyed me, and truth be told, The Hazards of Love fell on deaf ears (which is a fancy way of saying I’ve never heard it). So, just to underscore the point, I am not now, or ever was in the past, a Decemberists fan.

That said, I am a huge fan of The Decemberists’ new record, The King Is Dead. This thing, despite every misgiving, preconceived notion and prejudice I had going into it, is Essential Listening. It really is a fantastic and catchy album. Who knows, maybe The Decemberists are gonna be my DBT, but in reverse, where I hated the beginning of their career but loved the end. It’s a tad early to know for sure, but I think the kids from the Pacific Northwest hit a grand slam home run with The King Is Dead.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to eat a little bit of crow.

BLACK PRAIRIE – FEAST OF THE HUNTER'S MOON


It’s rather amazing that this album ever made it to my ears. If at any point I’d have read it was an almost exclusively instrumental album, I would have cast it aside without a second thought. If at any point I’d have read it was a side-project of some of The Decemberists, I would have cast it aside without a second thought. Fortunately, neither happened and I wasn’t deprived of this gem of an album.

Black Prairie consists of Decemberists Chris Funk, Nate Query and Jenny Conlee who are joined by fellow Portlanders (is that what y’all call yourselves?) Annalisa Tornfelt and Jon Neufield. At its core the album plays on the same field as any other bluegrass outfit, but it’s not really the same sound you’ve come to expect. Largely, the album consists of something one might describe as gothic bluegrass or maybe instrumental Appalachian laments, though they do pick things up from time to time, like in the fiddle-laden “Annie McGuire”. To me the band is at their best when Annalisa brings her hauntingly beautiful voice to the party, like in their cover of “Red Rocking Chair” and in the original “Crooked Little Heart”. That said, vocals or not, this album is well worth listening to and no one is more surprised about that than I am. Trust Me.
