THE NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 29

Woot! It was nice to get back to the podcast. Mad props to Charles for keeping it active and awesome the past two months. So awesome, in fact, we’re gonna start alternating months so you’ll hear him again in November. Like I was saying though, I am naturally a night person so I find actual enjoyment in staying up till 3:00 in the morning making these on Friday nights and after 2 months off, I had plenty of music to pick from.

I tried to keep the podcast from being a facsimile of the radio show and I think I did an okay job of it. There are still some similarities but come on. New SnakehealersAmerican Aquarium and new-slash-old Frank Turner demand they be played and I just found the Allen Thompson Band and local kids The Black Roses are in heavy rotation in my car so it should be no surprise they’re starting to creep into all my musical products.

Scattered amongst all that is a double scoop of awesome ready to make sweet sweet love to your ear drums. Give it a chance. I think you’ll like it.

Here is the tracklisting and as Otis Gibbs says, thanks for giving a damn.

01. Sunday Valley – I Don’t Mind (To The Wind And On To Heaven)
02. Frank Turner – The Road (Last Minutes & Lost Evenings)

THE NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 26

Holy shit. Like Poltergeist 2: we’re baaaaaack.

For now.

I cover it in the show, but I apologize for the massive break between shows. For the time being, I can’t say there won’t be another multi-month gap between shows and it’s gonna be that way for the remainder of 2012. It sucks, but sometimes real life takes hold. That said, I did make a show and that’s why you’re here, so let’s talk about that…

I have a show for y’all this time around that hits all the bases. Sometimes it rocks, sometimes it’s mellow. Sometimes it’s brand new, sometimes it’s…..well, it’s always pretty new. Some of the highlights on what is a show stacked with awesome are: McDougall, The Great Unknowns, Alone At 3AM, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, and Sturgill Simpson & The High Top Mountain Boys.

All that’s left is to press play on this motherfucker. So what are you waiting on? 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 finds counts, and you can directly assist them in that effort by telling people about this podcast and others like it.

PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 06.14.2012

I am trying something new with the track listing by including the album that the songs came from. Not sure if anyone actually reads these things but I thought that might be a useful piece of information that I was removing from the official playlist when I post it here. So lemme know if that’s something you appreciate/will use.

Last week’s show turned out so good I consciously went into this show trying to duplicate it. The lesson here is that the show just needs to happen organically. It’s still a good show, I just feel like the playlist is a little forced at spots. That said, it’s about the music, not my DJ prowess and the music is top notch. I continue my unrelenting push of McDougall by reaching into his back catalog for a song that’s a must hear for fans of the Tim Barry ethos. There is also a song from Florida’s Owsley Brothers that’s all sorts of groovetastic and you never go wrong with a little Left Lane Cruiser and Rev. Peyton. Towards the end the show starts to relax and features one of my newest obsessions, The Great Unknowns. If all of this sounds like something you’d be willing to invest an hour into then put some ears on the archived stream of the show and thanks for tuning in.

Below is the playlist for June 14, 2012 [Artist – Song – Album]

01. Jon Snodgrass – More Buddies – More Buddies, More Fun
02. Alone At 3AM – Another Round – Midwest Mess
03. Arliss Nancy – Failure – Simple Machines
04. Two Cow Garage – Alphabet City – The Wall Against Our Back
05. Todd Farrell – Take It Slow – Where Fake Cowboys Go To Drink
06. Truckstop Darlin’ – Sad Sweet Songs – Hope and The Heart It Breaks
07. The Owsley Brothers – Hot Mess – Cobalt
08. Left Lane Cruiser – Lost My Mind – Junkyard Speedball
09. Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band – Devils Look Like Angels – Between The Ditches
10. Doop & The Inside Outlaws – Blood River – Blood River
11. Austin Lucas w/ Glossary – Alone In Memphis – Live

I was back in the saddle last night after taking a week off and boy howdy it sure felt good. As you can see from the image above, the ninebullets radio stickers came in this week as well.

The show also features a double dose of one of my favorite new artist finds, McDougall.

The show also includes new tunes from Hurray For The Riff Raff, The Mastersons, Possessed By Paul James, Otis Gibbs and lots more.

For the first time in my short radio career I had to program a show last night despite not feeling very well. While the show (i think) turned out pretty good it was really tough to get inspired to search out much brand new music. I did manage to get some brand new songs from Denver’s Bonnie and the Beard, Portland’s Michael Dean Damron, Orlando’s The Woolly Bushmen, Louisiana’s Hurray For The Riff Raff and the internet’s Noah with his “semi-viral” cover of LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It.”

If that sounds like the good stuff go put some ears on the archived stream of the show and thanks for tuning in.

Whew. I’m a little late getting this one up. The past 3 days have been a whirlwind of beer, vodka, whiskey, rock shows and front porch laughs but now it’s back to the real world…

Anyhow, last week’s show featured Von from Americana Rock Mix pulling a cohost stint. It’s been a while since we had Von in studio so it was a whole lot of fun. He pulled a lot of the music for the show and much of it, I’d never even heard before. I bookended the show with a Beastie Boys cover and one of their hits while dropping a little McDougall in the middle of it all. Von and I have a worthwhile discussion about The Gaslight Anthem and the possibility that they’re just a one trick pony in the middle of it all too. If none of that is enough to entice you into listening to the show did you know that James Leg (Black Diamond Heavies) and Left Lane Cruiser are putting out an album together? Neither did I! But I did play the first single during the show.

Sound like the good stuff? Then go put some ears on the archived stream of the show.

Below is the playlist for May 10, 2012

01. Portland Country Underground – Fight For Your Right
02. JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound – Everything Will Be Fine
03. James Leg & Left Lane Cruiser – Ramblin’ On My Mind
04. Michael Donner & The Southern Renaissance – Promise Me
05. Magic Box – Cover It Up
06. Sunday Valley – Old Sunshine
07. Whiskey Myers – Turn It Up
08. The Gaslight Anthem – 45
09. Arliss Nancy – Pages
10. Mosey West – Hell Hounds

MCDOUGALL – A FEW TOWNS MORE

A Few Towns More

You just can’t go wrong with a musician sporting a serious beard. Just look at Otis Gibbs. Or the dudes in ZZ-Top. When the beard issue is brought up, our man Rune says, “I guess it’s part envy on my part, I’ve been wanting one all my life and it turns out I can not grow a beard if my life depended on it. I guess that’s why whenever a musician, and especially a singer/songwriter turns up with a beard, I’ll take him twice as serious as a beardless hack like me.” “The beard,” he continues, “to me at least, signifies that this person actually has lived life, and been too busy to shave – staying away from dead-end jobs where you are encouraged to stay clean shaved.

Let’s talk about the music though, because that shit speaks for itself. You don’t need to see McDougall’s beard to hear that he’s lived his words when he pleads things like, “I used to be so sure of who my enemies were,” like he does in “The Travels of Frederick Tolls – Part 1”. There’s just so much truth in there. He’s got this raw, dirty voice, and his music has elements of Canned Heat, Tom Waits and delta-blues carefully mixed with bluegrass, country and rock. Writing these catchy tunes with enough edge to keep you on your toes – waiting for his next tale.

A Few Towns More kicks off with a real party. Handclaps, a swingin’ banjo, footstomps and people humming loudly along to the tune before making its intentions wholly clear with track 2, aptly titled “Ready, Begin”. From there the album unfolds with 10 tracks of banjo, growls, footstomps and declarations that, by the end of it’s 39th minute, might have you thinking Scott McDougall is the perfect mixture of Possessed By Paul James and Tim Barry. That’s how it worked for me.

Of one thing there is no doubt: A Few Towns More in undeniably Essential Listening.
