Jon Snodgrass – Carpet Thief

Jon Snodgrass – Carpet Thief

I’ve always been disappointed with the album bloat that accompanied the CD era of music. Bands crammed ridiculous amounts of filler crap on CDs in an attempt to reach the 74 min maximum. Quality sacrificed on the altar of quantity. I’m of the opinion that 10 songs is a solid number. This gives the listener […]

Two Cow Garage, Have Gun Will Travel, Drag the River, and Empty Orchestra each play a classic Tupelo song. Check it out over on their website– they’re looking for interest to see […]

Mixtape: "Hole Dozer"

So I’ve been working a lot lately, and thinking about work. I’m too exhausted to put much thought into this post, so I’m not going to. I have a lot of feelings about work, and you can find a lot of them in this mixtape. It has a lot of stuff I really love: starts […]

Podcast – Ajax Diner Book Club 9/29/14 – Podcast Only

This week on the radio show I participated in KRFC’s pledge drive. It was way too much of me asking for money and trying to create witty banter with someone else. I prefer to do my radio alone. So instead of subjecting you to that I put together a totally different patch of songs with […]

OVERVIEW – CHAD REX & THE VICTORSTANDS

OVERVIEW – CHAD REX & THE VICTORSTANDS

  Overview is a series of reviews of short, done bodies of work that are probably out of print–complete discographies that are over. Some people say I should call this an oeuvre-view, some people don’t care about french puns, but everybody should spend an hour trying to track down these albums because they’re worth it. I mean, […]

Drag The River – Self Titled

Drag The River – Self Titled

The best thing about Drag The River’s new self-titled record is that it exists at all. If you’ve followed the band at all you’re aware that they rarely play live and it’s been a number of years since their last “real” release. (Bad At Breaking Up & 2010 Demons being less than full band collections) […]
