Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
A jam packed episode with a live bent. New live and archival releases from Neil Young, The National and David Bowie, as well as the return of Shuggie Otis and Julian Cope. Brand new music from Thievery Corporation and Lord Huron, rarities from John's Lennon and Prine, an obscure Eno cover and a mini tribute to Steven Wilson covers just some of this musical missive from the basement.
New stuff from Leon Bridges, Glen Phillips, Jim James and The Boxer Rebellion are just a sample of the highlights in Episode #12. We'll get to a finally released classic from Prince, new Record Store Day stuff from Led Zeppelin and a study in exposure featuring Robert Fripp, Peter Gabriel and The Modern Jazz Quartet!
Episode 11 finds new stuff from Josh Rouse, Wye Oak, Neko Case, Greyhounds, some beautiful remasters from Todd Rundgren, Cocteau Twins and rare archival stuff courtesy of The Blue Nile, Pink Floyd and Chicago Transit Authority. That pretty much just scratches the surface of this 3 and a half hour stream of musical consciousness.
As we enter double digits some new stuff from eels, Goat Girl and Yo La Tengo, music appreciation class with Thelonious Monk and an explanation from Jimmy Page are just some highlights.
For Episode #9 (always a magic number) we'll pull out some newly released Cheap Trick rarities, rare live Todd Rundgren, new music from Lemon Twigs, Rosanne Cash, Sloan, Neil Young, Bettye Lavette, Erika from The Heartless Bastards and more. Also words of wisdom from Frank Sinatra and Frank Zappa, an impromptu tribute to Dwight Twilley, a trip back to Liverpool with a pair of different eras explored and believe it or not...a whole bunch more!
