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.

AMERICANA ROCK MIX: EPISODE 111 (FEATURING YOURS TRULY AS A GUEST HOST)

Last Friday I braved urban flood advisories, torrential rains, high winds and one big ass bridge to join Von for an episode of his podcast, Americana Rock Mix, and to drink all of his Maduro Brown Ale.

The episode is a retrospective of the Suburban Home Records catalog with lots of rambling between me and Von injected between songs. The entire thing clocks in at nearly 2 hours and can be heard here.

During the episode you’ll hear multiple songs from; I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch The House, Drag the River (duo and proper), Austin Lucas, Two Cow Garage, Tim Barry, Josh Small, The Takers, Micah Schnabel, Mike Damron as well as Arliss Nancy.

So WTF are you waiting for? Go listen now!

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: EPISODE 22

It’s time for a new ninebullets podcast. Immediately you might notice that I’ve stopped naming these by the month they were released and going with the more common numbering of the episodes. I am doing this cause I’ve not been so swell at getting these out monthly so I thought going to the numbering system would work better. This will also enable me to do more than one in a month should the opportunity to do that arise.

With that said, let’s talk about the new show. Following in the footsteps of the radio show 2 weeks ago I decided to do a “some of the best of the first ½ of 2011” show that would feature some of the songs that I didn’t get to on Ninebullets Radio. The show features a track from Shane Sweeny’s upcoming solo album, The Finding Time as well as tracks from two heavily anticipated albums from the likes of Gillian Welch and William Elliott Whitmore. The show is rounded out with awesome songs from 9B faves such as Austin Lucas, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Grayson Capps, Frank Turner, Jason Isbell as well as new found fave Damion Suomi.

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. Now….on to the tunes:

Track Listing:

01. Jami Lynn – SweetThing
02. Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside – Poison Milk
03. Autopsy IV Commentary
04. Damion Suomi – Ghost
05. Gillian Welch – That’s The Way It Goes
06. Jason Isbell – Codeine
07. Autopsy IV Commentary
08. Slim Cessna’s Auto Club – Three Bloodhounds Two Shepherds One Fila Brasileiro
09. William Elliott Whitmore – Bury Your Burdens In The Ground
10. Chet O’Keefe – Game Bird
11. Grayson Capps – Rock N Roll
12. Autopsy IV Commentary
13. Shane Sweeny – When I Am Empty
14. Austin Lucas – Sleep Well

NINEBULLETS.NET APRIL/MAY 2011 PODCAST:

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.

NINEBULLETS.NET PODCAST: MARCH 2011: SxSW/CxCW EDITION:


Hey everyone. I shove off for SxSW in a few hours and figured I’d post a new podcast before I shuttered the site for the week. Well. Kind of shuttered. I’m sure there will be scattered updates from Austin but they’ll be sporadic and of questionable lucidity. If you’re interested you can follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook where I am sure there will be no shortage of updates, hijinks and pictures for use as evidence. But enough about me and my travels…let’s talk about the podcast.

The first half of the show serves as a SxSW preview of sorts but it’s worth is since the preview has brand new tracks from Ha Ha Tonka, Jason Isbell and the incomparable Slim Cessna’s Auto Club. As the show moves along I drift away from the SxSW motif with new songs from James Leg, Michael Dean Damron and The Red Hills.

All in all, I think I’ve done a pretty good job putting together an hour of quality listening for all the CxCW kids out there. As always, if you enjoy the show please share it with your Facebook and Twitter buddies. If you really enjoy the show, let me know…it’s always nice to get some feedback.

TRACK LISTING:

  1. Justin Otto – Sun [00.00.00]
  2. Jason Isbell – Alabama Pines [00.03.15]
  3. Ha Ha Tonka – Made Example Of [00.07.05]

ninebullets.net JANUARY 2011 PODCAST: LET'S GET JIGGY WITH IT EDITION:


(AIV Note: This was supposed to be posted yesterday but my dumb ass forgot to upload the podcast to the server. Der, I iz full of forgets….anyhow, enjoy.)

Well, it might be a new year and I might have a radio show now but nothing really changes when it comes to the podcast. It starts nice enough and you might even be able to hear some improvement gleaned from doing a weekly radio show but it quickly devolves into a ½ drunk foul mouthed typical podcast. Don’t let that deter you though. While my speech and self-censoring abilities may erode over the hour the music fucking slays and that’s what you’re here for, right?

This month show is plumb full of new music. We got new songs from The Only Sons, Kasey Anderson, Social D, The Decemberists, Frank Turner and Two Cow Garage. We also bookended this show with Michael Claytor. We open the show with a track from his solo album, We Have An Elephant and we close the show with an absolutely beautiful song from Austin Lucas which features Michael playing some fine banjo and harmonies. And, if all of that wasn’t pushing your awesome meter to it’s threshold of pain, we even managed to mix in a track from Danzig’s new album and it fits. PLAM! Top that It Burns When I Pee….the gauntlet has been laid down.

Well folks, that’s it. Another month in the can and I hope y’all like it. If you do, could you please, please, please post something about it on twitter, facebook and whatever cutting edge social network I am oblivious to? Every mention of this will expose these artists to someone who’s never heard of them and that’s what we’re looking for.

Track Listing:

  1. Michael Claytor & His Friends – Hairpins [00.00.00]
  2. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.05.04]
  3. The Only Sons – Temptation [00.06.24]
  4. Kasey Anderson – The Wrong Light [00.09.55]
  5. Danzig – The Revengeful [00.14.07]
  6. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.18.02]
  7. Social Distortion – Machine Gun Blues [00.20.07]
  8. Lucero – Sing Me No Hymns [00.23.45]
  9. Autopsy V Commentary [00.27.37]
  10. The Decemberists – Down By The Water [00.30.00]
  11. Frank Turner – I Still Believe [00.33.37]
  12. Two Cow Garage – My Great Gatsby [00.37.20]

NINEBULLETS.NET DECEMBER 2010 PODCAST: SOME OF MY FAVORITE SONGS FROM 2010 EDITION:


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:

TRACK LISTING:

  1. Lissie – Bad Romance (Lady Ga Ga cover) [00.00.00]
  2. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.05.36]
  3. Jon Snodgrass – Old Sad Songs [00.06.46]
  4. Gill Landry – Careless Love [00.09.04]
  5. Shannon McNally – Bohemian Wedding Song [00.13.02]
  6. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.18.32]
  7. American Graveyard – Common Ones [00.19.24]
  8. Tim Barry – Thing of the Past [00.23.02]
  9. Truckstop Darlin’ – Bluegrass State [00.26.48]
  10. Mat. D. – Ford Marriage [00.31.56]
  11. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.35.12]
  12. Doc Dailey & Magnolia Devil – Prove Me Wrong [00.37.04]
  13. Two Cow Garage – Jackson, Don’t You Worry [00.38.48]
  14. Joseph Huber – Can’t You See A Floods Coming [00.42.34]
  15. Joe Pug – Not So Sure [00.46.32]
  16. Otis Gibbs – Kansas City [00.51.02]
  17. Autopsy IV Commentary [00.54.36]
  18. Frank Turner – I Still Believe [00.56.54]

As always, if you’re enjoying the sounds you’re hearing please mention this show to your friends and relatives.

See y’all (i think) in 2011!

NINEBULLETS.NET NOVEMBER 2010 PODCAST: WE’RE BACK EDITION:


Oh yeah! Sorry for the 2 month furlow. I missed a month for the ninebullets.net 4th Anniversary Party (which was way awesome!) and I missed a month based on total I dunno. Honestly, I’d planned to do an October podcast but the month just kind of got away from me. Not that any of that shit matters now. It’s November, turkey day is around the corner and the podcast is back so let’s talk about it….

The November show features a really drunk me (can you tell where I turned off the drunk recording of this show and came back sober?) and new music from 9B staples Kasey Anderson, Whitey Morgan & The 78’s, The Steeldrivers, Joseph Huber (.357 String Band), John Mellencamp and Drag The River. It also features some music from some new found 9B faves like The Cur Dogs, Truckstop Darlin’ and Doc Dailey.

All in all, I think this is a great collection of music for your Thanksgiving travels. Listen, love, order a Jack and Coke from your stewardess and let’s do this! Also, really, you have no idea how far a comment, an email or any sort of acknowledgment that people are actually listening/enjoying these things goes….so please, if you like the 9B podcast, let me know but only after you’ve tweeted and posted on Facebook about it.

Enjoy and I’ll holler at y’all in December (i promise, I’ve already pulled out Robert Earle Keene’s, “Merry Christmas From The Family“).

NINEBULLETS.NET JULY 2010 PODCAST:


I’ll tell y’all what, when you do a monthly podcast you really begin to appreciate how short a month is. It’s like you just finished the last podcast when you realize you only have 5 days left before the next one is due. This is also the first podcast I ever made without the use of any beer or whiskey. Outside of there being no slurring by the end of it, I don’t really notice much of a difference. Lemme know if you do.

This month’s show features a pretty good balance between ninebullets regulars such as Biram, The Truckers, Austin Lucas and Mat D and relative newcomers you may not have heard of if you don’t read ninebullets such as Back Row Baptists, Reverend Deadeye and The Maldives. In between all of those we dropped some artists that have yet to be featured at all in 9b (though they will in the coming month’s) like Root Jack, The Sadies and Tin Horn Prayer. All in all, I think the whole set turned out really fantastic and I bet an hour from now you’ll agree with me.

If you enjoy this month’s please tell your Facebook and Twitter followers about it, I’ll greatly appreciate it.

NINEBULLETS.NET JUNE 2010 PODCAST: WELCOME BACK EDITION

Told y’all I’d get back on the grind. I’d like to say that I’m sorry for missing last month and the truth is….I am….mostly. At the same time, the month off was nice. Unless you’re doing a monthly podcast, I don’t think you can appreciate just how fast each month passes. How people do weekly podcasts is quite simply beyond me. That said, enough about my whining. Let’s talk about this month’s podcast….

Most months I make a pretty concentrated effort to play new music, so I decided to just let the songs dictate what would get played this month. The end result was probably the most fun I’ve had assembling a podcast in a while. With that said, it seems that as the podcast wears on the undertone of the songs gets darker and darker. I’m not sure why that happened. My only guess is that the thunderstorms right outside my window while I was listening to and selecting the music played an influential role in what you’re gonna hear this month.

I decided to pay a slight homage to the show Justified. Now, I know I haven’t talked about Justified here on ninebullets, but if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you know I was watching it. The show started off slowly and Raylan was a little bit too much of a cocksure Superman, but as the season wore on I thought the writers did a pretty good job of showing that this cocksure Superman complex was as much Raylan’s Achilles Heel as it was his mojo, and I’m already looking forward to next season. From there we just rambled through a collection of songs both old and new with no real direction until “Bloodshot Eyes” by Possum Jenkins. From there it’s a steady trip down into a darker and darker mood. I wanna say that I didn’t choose Tim Barry’s song “222” lightly. There are certain song’s like “Darby’s Song” by Lucero that should be treated with a proper amount of respect, and “222” falls into that class of song. Normally, “the proper amount of respect” would include NOT putting it on a podcast and I tried to avoid putting it on here, but no matter what track I tried to put in its place nothing fit the tone as well, so in the end I decided that “the proper amount of respect” sometimes means it’s played when it needs to be played….even if it’s on my stupid little podcast. I hope one or two of you agree.

Anyhow, I’ll drink whiskey and record another one of these next month. If you enjoyed this month’s please tell your Facebook and Twitter followers about it, I’ll greatly appreciate it.
