The Rainbow Rider show for this Saturday morning at 2 AM consists of six different EP's, and here is the list: East Grand Blues by The Greenhornes, Alwaysnever by Film School, EP by The Host Country, In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country by Boards of Canada, Fight Songs by The For Carnation, and Illinois 5 A.M. by Kevin Gordon. Sort of a unique experience, hearing these through just like you would at home.
Please enjoy the show. Cool Breeze.
Wow, are there a bunch of songs out there about loss and leaving. Goodbye songs, and songs that help exorcise the demons by releasing all that emotion. And its so long for now with me, I got some things I gotta do. The G Man
Two items of noteworty information for you. 1) We will listen to Pre Language in its entirety by a band named Disappears. 2) I have four long songs by various bands; No Escape by Chromatics, Empire of The Sun by Hapshash and The Colored Coat, Kate and The King by The Asteroid No. 4, and Driftin'and Driftin' by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. It's a warm, beautiful night for music. Cool Breeze
I am living large, and you will be too when you join me for Centripetal Sounds Thursday. I am jumping all over some new music by Diane Coffee, The Woolen Men, and Gap Dream. Also in store for you: A record called Power Plant that recently sold at auction for 676 dollars, and another well-known disc that went for 399. Canadian band Kings Verses plays, and I will have an interesting song sandwich for those of you that are hungry for great music. Also some old White Stripes as we wait for the new Jack White album to land. My fantasy is the perfect two hour show. This may be it, you never know. The G Man
Twink put out an album called Think Pink back in 1970. Unfortunately, I did not personally hear it all the way through until 2013. So, hopefully you won't make the same mistake I did, and you'll hear it all tomorrow morning. In addition to this fine slab o'vinyl, we will hear 3 songs from The Soft Hills 2013 release Chromatisms. Plus four epics from The Paperhead, Syd Arthur, Ducktails, and Marillion, the last from their excellent 2012 release Sounds That Can't Be Made. They made some, at least enough for a song. I have 20 of those for you, enjoy. Cool Breeze
Millennials, Generation Y'ers: Stick around after Mr. Tint's show at 2 PM tomorrow for Centripetal Sounds. I have a time machine, and I am going to use it! Of course, the past and the future only exist in the mind... you will need to be present, you see. And, by request, we will blast through songs that blast you through your day. If you are like Todd Rundgren, and you run home to bang on a drum and pretend it's your bosses' head, you will relate to this show. The 'great' boss- decrier of the status quo, purveyor of purpose, crafter of passion and focus, master of regulating all things to their proper place: This individual will be completely absent from our survey. Side one is gritty, side two rocks a groove hard. Let's get busy. The G Man
I am sitting here waiting for the Cyclone game to start, hoping they are going to whup up on UCONN and maybe MSU later this weekend. So if you are excited from the victory, and haven't passed out from too much party, you will still be awake for this show. Right after People sing I Love You, we will hear the self-titled 2009 offering from Quilt. Allmusic says, "Quilt live up to their name, weaving a tapestry that's warm in it's dreamy, early morning feel and comforting in it's mantra-like delivery." Dreamy, yes, but I like it too. Then it is on to folks like Bob Dylan, CSNY, Cheap Trick, and The Paperhead, with a really wonderful song called Evergreen Tangerine that ends this show and begins the next show. Please enjoy the music. Cool Breeze
Heraclitus famously once said 'You cannot step in the same river twice.' This Thursday is unique, just like each and every day. So, this is not just another day, and it will not be just another show. We are going to run through the week in songs, and we are starting with Sunday. Head East gives us this line: Came up Sunday morning, first day of the week...then I have Monday Morning Gloom, and Jimi Hendrix ('It's too bad, that our friends, can't be with us today, well, it's Tuesday). Wednesday is taken care of, you guessed it, by Simon & Garfunkel. Thursday is the Pet Shop Boys, Friday is glorified by The Easybeats, and Saturday gets the royal treatment with The Jefferson Airplane and Greg Kihn. In between certain songs you will hear short sketches of classical music, seven in all. Like nothing you have heard before on Centripetal Sounds. Enjoy! The G Man
Right after our return visit to the Fuzz song What's In My Head, we will hear Gilded Pleasures, in it's entirety, by The Growlers. They made an appearance last year at the Austin Psych Fest, and I hope to attend that festival some day. They are 'just inside the line' in the pop psych category. During the rest of the show I alternate old sixties singles by people like The Sir Douglas Quintet with more contemporary tunes by James Blackshaw, Goldrush, and others. Cool Breeze
For one thin dime today(post 1964, of course), you can hear a veritable compendium of songs that are one-liners. That is to say, each song has one line in it that keeps bringing you back to listen to it multiple times. As an example, check out this lyric from Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf: 'Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild." Or this lyric from Get Off This by Cracker: "If you want to change the world, shut your mouth and start this minute." I have 27 songs lined up, check the lineup under 'recent playlists' on the tab to the left, and here is a parting shot for you from the show: "One way or another, this darkness has got to give..." The G Man
