I’d be lying if I didn’t admit this was an excuse to post Charles’ podcast because it completely rocks and he’s pretty damn awesome. I know I miss his voice in the background of things around here. I’ve added his podcast to “Sites We Read” and hopefully you’ll all subscribe to it. There’s a lot worse things you could do with your time.
Damnit. This podcast was supposed to be posted the last weekend of April but when I made the podcast apparently my microphone was messing up, so I had to go back and rerecord all the parts where I was talking. As a result, it’s a little late but the music in this episode makes it worth the wait.
This month’s podcast opens with what is, in my opinion, song of the year so far, “Highway 42” by Grayson Capps, and just keeps crushing from there on out. It features Matt Woods, The Only Sons, Have Gun Will Travel and Two Cow Garage, all of whom are playing my birthday party tonight. It also features brand new music from plenty of bands you know, as well as a few you might not.
I’ll leave y’all to the music after a quick request. If you like what you’re hearing on these podcasts, tell you 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. So, your challenge for the month of May, should you accept it, is to tell 5 people you think would appreciate this music about a podcast or website. I’d love if it was the 9B Podcast or ninebullets.net, but it doesn’t have to be.

Hey everyone, just a reminder that if you enjoy these podcasts, we do a weekly radio show on Thursday nights here in Tampa/St. Pete on 88.5. WMNF. The show is on from 10pm – 11pm and can be heard live via the internet via wmnf.org. And should you miss the show, no worries! It’s available all week via the archives.
Here we are at the end of another year. All things considered, it was a pretty good one. On a personal level, I came into 2010 facing some pretty freaky & scary health issues and I’m leaving more or less in tact and healthy. Both my Seminoles and my Buccaneers had positive seasons while it looks like my Lightning are gonna be in the playoff conversation all season. Musically, it was a pretty solid year too and that’s what we’re really here to talk about now ain’t it.
In preparation for this show I literally (yes, I am properly using the word) collected 70+ songs I wanted to play and set to making 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” that fit the flow of this particular show. That said, there are some seriously good songs assembled in here.
And, 2011 is already shaping up to be pretty fucking phenomenal. Hopefully, this won’t be the final ninebullets.net podcast but there’s more about that in the show, so for now, let’s just listen to the music:
Lissie – Bad Romance (Lady Ga Ga cover) [00.00.00]
Autopsy IV Commentary [00.05.36]

As always, if you’re enjoying the sounds you’re hearing please mention this show to your friends and relatives.
I have to get this one in before the end of the year so I’m not stuck including a band I didn’t even write about on my Top 10 of the year list.
If you haven’t heard of Doc Dailey and Magnolia Devil then you need to pay more attention to me on twitter and Facebook and start listening to my damned podcasts but whatever, better now than never.
Doc Dailey comes to us out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Victims, Enemies & Old Friends is the followup to an EP he released way back in 2005. He teamed up with former FAME sound engineer, Ben Tanner, in Wishbone Studios and set to recording a full length. Now, I’m a drunk, not a music historian but when I think Muscle Shoals sound I think soul and southern rock and Doc Dailey ain’t either of those. They remind me another ninebullets favorite, Medford’s Black Record Collection, albeit more musical and less brooding but just as haunting and desolate. Victims, Enemies & Old Friends has an excellent mix of songs you can bounce and sing along to and songs you can drink and plot the murder of a loved one too. Sometimes, it’s the same song.
Trust me, I know about these things.
Anyhow, I wanted to mention this album before the end of the year cause it’s Essential Listening and almost definitely gonna be in my Top 10 so I wanted y’all to know about it in advance.
