FRANZ NICOLAY—TO US, THE BEAUTIFUL!

FRANZ NICOLAY—TO US, THE BEAUTIFUL!

Only your first tattoo has to mean something / you can get something dumb to fill the rest in / it’s only skin To Franz Nicolay, the Dependable! Dependability, consistency, reliability aren’t always the sexiest qualities of songwriters. I can recall only one tune from the heard of Justin Townes Earle’s last three albums, but I […]

EMILYN BRODSKY—EATS HER FEELINGS

EMILYN BRODSKY—EATS HER FEELINGS

get a bottle of whiskey / get a bottle of gin / get dead-set on the death of old stories / get born again A few months ago I wrote a post about artists who I remember fondly and wish were still gigging regularly. That Top-5 post was originally going to culminate with Emilyn Brodsky, the […]

THE NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 35 hosted by Mike Ostrov

THE NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 35 hosted by Mike Ostrov

I used to host an internet radio show in Gainesville–and since I’ve moved away I’ve missed doing that very much. Podcasting on your own turns out to be much harder than working with all the great equipment and coworkers at GrowRadio. So, I ask for your patience and hope for your interest in hearing me […]

OSTROV'S BEST OF 2012

OSTROV'S BEST OF 2012

There were so many good albums this year that I couldn’t make the decision to rank them, and I know that’s not the most important decision anyway, so this year’s best-of list is in groups with no internal order. This is the art I spent my cherished/wasted time consuming this year. Hope everybody’s upcoming year […]

OSTROV's TOP 10 OF '11

Top 10 Albums: 25. J. Mascis – Several Shades of Why 24. Ruby Coast – Whatever This Is: They made their first EPs while still in high school, but their first LP is mature, polished, and a blast to dance or drive to. (free music alert) 23. Algernon Cadwallader – Parrot Files: Rips off Cap’n […]

9B WEEK IN REVIEW:

9B WEEK IN REVIEW:

Well, another week is in the books and my Florida State Seminoles still haven’t won a game against a Division 1A team. It’s times like these that whiskey and music were made for. This is what happened on ninebullets.net this week: We found another Ninebullets Kickstarter Project of the month worthy project in Franz Nicolay’s […]

NINEBULLETS KICKSTARTER PROJECT FOR OCTOBER: FRANZ NICOLAY

NINEBULLETS KICKSTARTER PROJECT FOR OCTOBER: FRANZ NICOLAY

The plan at the beginning of the year was to support one Kickstarter project a month. Then came unemployment threats and panic and I stopped doing it all together in April/May. Well, the job thing really hasn’t gotten any better but it hasn’t gotten any worse either so I’d been tossing the idea of picking […]

THE HOLD STEADY – HEAVEN IS WHENEVER

THE HOLD STEADY – HEAVEN IS WHENEVER

I am not a The Hold Steady fanboy by any stretch of the imagination. To be honest the only album of theirs I play with any regularity is Separation Sunday. Boys and Girls in America was an alright album and I pull it out every once in a while, especially for Chillout Tent and Southtown […]
