Lonely Like Thursday – A TBT MixTape

cover

As I go through my old archives I keep finding mixes that I really like and think need to see the light of day again. This one seemed perfect for a Thursday where I am buried at work. I can’t remember how in the hell I actually put these tracks together, in this order, and thought it would work. Strangely enough it does and it’s a lot of fun to comb back through these old mixes and re-post them! I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I am.

AUTOPSY IV'S FAVORITE 10 ALBUMS OF 2012 (today):

Most years, this is a much greater presentation from myself and I’m sorry that this year isn’t the same. It’s been a shit year and that fact combined with the depression that comes with it has sapped my entire motivation to sit down and do all the HTML formatting to make this list as beautiful as (i feel) it normally is.

Presentation aside. I stand by this list wholly. I may not have been able to muster the ambition to format it like years past (I am taking pills that are intended to get me back there) but the list was as brooded, mulled and fussed over as any other year.

So. Without any further ado. Here are, in my opinion, the best albums of 2012 (with links to the original review):

10. Tin Horn Prayer – Grapple The Rails (not yet reviewed)
09. Andrew W. CombsWorried Man
08. Alone At 3AMMidwest Mess
07. The Great UnknownsHomefront
06. JKutchma & The Five FifthsPastoral
05. Lee Bains III & The Glory FiresThere Is A Bomb In Gilead
04. OFF!OFF!
03. American AquariumBurn.Flicker.Die.
02. Arliss NancySimple Machines

And my album of the year is:

01. Scott McDougall – A Few Towns More

PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 05.03.2012

Most of the time you go to the station, do your show and leave. It becomes a routine of sorts. Occasionally you do a show that you really feel good about. Last night was one such show. Not sure what it is that sets some apart from the rest but whatever it is, last night’s has it.

I opened the show with a Lumineers, Mastersons, The District Attorneys set I’d been thinking about doing for a few weeks but wasn’t sure how it would go over with the listeners. While the middle of the show features a brand new Gaslight Anthem track as well as a set featuring some of the bands I am looking forward to seeing at next week’s Tropical Heatwave. Finally, on a whim I decided to close the show with a track from the new OFF! album. That’s probably what put the show over the top for me.

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

Below is the playlist for May 03, 2012

01. Otis Gibbs – The People’s Day
02. The Lumineers – Ho Hey
03. The Mastersons – You Don’t Know
04. The District Attorneys – Worry About Your Health
05. The Gaslight Anthem – 45
06. Tin Horn Prayer – Stumble
07. Damion Suomi – Ghost
08. Greenland Is Melting – No Matter What You See
09. Have Gun Will Travel – To The Victor Goes The Spoils
10. Matt Woods – Beating Down My Door
11. JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound – Want More
12. Joseph Huber – Iron Rail
13. Steep Canyon Rangers – Between Midnight and The Dawn
14. Hurray for The Riff Raff – Born To Win (Part One)
15. OFF! – Feelings Were Meant To Be Hurt

PLAYLIST: NINEBULLETS RADIO 04.26.2012

The past few weeks have seen 9b Radio sit in a more mellow groove so I decided to up the rock level of this week’s show. It certainly didn’t hurt to have Truckstop Darlin’ and Tin Horn Prayer send me brand new songs and when you combined those with Sunday Valley, an unreleased track from the Bohannons the rock kind of upped itself. Even the requests fit the overall feel I was going for last night so good job to the listeners. Now! Go put some ears on the archived stream of the show.

Below is the playlist for April 26, 2012

01. Two Cow Garage – Postcards & Apologies
02. Sunday Valley – All The Pretty Colors
03. Lincoln Durham – Love Letters
04. Kasey Anderson – Some Depression
05. Truckstop Darlin’ – Miss You More
06. Bohannons – Shanahan
07. Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires – The Red, Red Dirt Of Home
08. Tin Horn Prayer – Stumble

10. Lucero – On My Way Downtown
11. Woody Pines – Red Rockin’ Chair

UP, DOWN AND ALL AROUND: INTERWEBS EDITION:

That there interweb is big and vast and sometimes it’s easy to miss some of the awesome that happens on it. So here is an attempt to link to some of the other awesome that’s happening out there:

  • R.E.M. called it quits this week and there has already been no shortage of homages to the band and their discography. Personally, I was never a huge R.E.M. fan but I did find these two articles interesting. They were the first two articles ever written about the band and that kind of history is fascinating to me. I also find the news a tad convenient as the band has “their first career-spanning retrospectivecoming out in November. Now, I’m not saying this is all a stunt to boost sales…I’m just saying I wouldn’t be exceedingly surprised to see a reunion tour in a couple of years.

And that’s it folks. Have a fun, safe weekend and try not to get hit by any falling satellites.

9B WEEK IN REVIEW:

It was a really busy week here on ninebullets and we’re hoping that will be the new norm with all the new writers so I thought I’d start posting a weekly recap on the weekend (good idea?). So let’s get into it:

VIDEO: TIN HORN PRAYER – CRIME SCENE CLEANUP TEAM

Denver’s Tin Horn Prayer debuted the video for their song “Crime Scene Cleanup Team” this weekend at the Suburban Home Anniversary Party and I am assuming, like me, most of you couldn’t be there to see it.

Well fear not, cause we have it here for you this morning in all it’s blood glory:

THE RED HILLS – I’M A NIGHTMARE


It’s been a busy period for the folks in the ICLASOB camp. First they finally pulled The Sounds of Dying off the shelf and gave it the proper release it deserved, Michael Dean Damron has a brand new solo cd coming out, and then you got I’m A Nightmare being pulled from the dusty and hardest to reach corner of the shelf for a proper release of its own.

The Red Hills are Jon Burbank, Dave Lipkind and Flapjack from I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House, joined by standup bass player and singer/songwriter, Dewey Nelson. The band has been around for over a decade and is probably better known under their previous name, The Runaway Boys. The band has taken actively inactive to a new level, averaging approximately two shows every three years, and even longer to finish the album. The album has taken so long, in fact, that at some point a few years back fellow ICLASOB bandmate Mole Harris claimed that he’d drink the oil from one of the lamps at Dante’s if the cd ever saw the light of day. Fortunately for him the band changed their name, letting him off the hook on a technicality.

Knowing all of this, I really expected I’m A Nightmare to feel disconnected and disjointed, with a clash of ideas sometimes years apart. Instead, what I got was a record that could best be described as a mashup of ICLASOB and Tin Horn Prayer, an album meant to be played loud, with booze at hand and drunken sing alongs on tap. With winter about to give way for spring, your barbeque playlist needs some freshening up and The Red Hills have what you need. Check it out and lemme know if you agree that it’s Essential Listening.

The Red Hills – USAtan
The Red Hills – Seal It Up
The Red Hills – Eight Seconds
