Somebody Likes It Ep 126: Guns & Roses – “Appetite For Destruction”

0 Submitted by on Mon, 05 March 2018, 11:20
What do you say about Axl Rose? Where do you start? Tiny bike shorts? His interest in guitar players with interesting head gear choices (black top hat with silver conch shells/an upside down KFC bucket)? His Noel Gallagheresqe inability to properly use words when describing things (Noel-“SLOWLY walking down the hall, FASTER than a cannonball”/Axl-“wait for the thunder and the Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 125: King Krule – “The Ooz”

0 Submitted by on Tue, 27 February 2018, 12:21
You’ll never accuse Archy Marshall (better known as King Krule) of waxing trite: Marshall, the artist by way of producer, has always been as versatile and fearless as he has been precocious. He forged a bumpy, art-indulged childhood into unpredictable, relentless artistic visions as a young adult, and it seems to be taking him places: with The Ooz, his latest Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 124: The Holiday Mixtape Show 2017

0 Submitted by on Wed, 21 February 2018, 11:02
We figured out somewhere along the way that our Holiday Mixtape show wasn’t an annual tradition, actually. Mostly because we skipped doing it last year altogether. In retrospect, it’s probably better this way: Christmas songs tend to feel like abrupt departures from the norm, with a set of rules all their own, and a certain ascribed timelessness that may ensure Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 123 – Lou Reed: “New York”

As I write this, I am currently consuming the Jim Jarmusch documentary about the Stooges, Gimme Danger. This means nothing, other than the fact that it turns out the Stooges hung out with Nico, and that ridiculously beautiful German model had a hold (artistically!) with two massively influential bands. She is most known, of course, for collaborating with the Velvet Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 122 – Descendents: Milo Goes to College

1 Submitted by on Mon, 29 January 2018, 13:27
Going to college—in and of itself, sans context—isn’t entirely remarkable. Literally thousands of people do it. But when you’re the lead singer of a coffee-infused punk band in the early 1980s, and your down time en route to picking up your Ph.D in Biochemistry is spent at the intersection of extended adolescence and minute-long thrash-centric “nerdcore”, people tend to notice. Continue Reading...

Best of Everything in 2017

4 Submitted by on Mon, 01 January 2018, 12:11
Instead of doing a boring old top ten list or going podcast by podcast through all the possible topics for “Best of 2017” shows, we decided this year to just put a bunch of our staff together from different shows and parts of the site, and get them in a conversation about what were their favorite things from the year. Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 121: The Cure – “Bloodflowers”

0 Submitted by on Wed, 13 December 2017, 10:04
It’s kind of a trick question: when your band sounds a little gloomy to begin with, how can your audience tell when you’re despondent? Maybe that’s not fair. Maybe it’s possible that Bloodflowers, The Cure’s 2000 LP and, per Robert Smith, the end of a trilogy that began with Pornography and continued with Disintegration, is less a swan song and Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It: Ep 120: Wand – “Plum”

0 Submitted by on Mon, 04 December 2017, 12:33
Start by forgetting all you think you know. Every day is Christmas when you’re an LA Garage scene musician, and the songs are presents you can’t unwrap quickly enough: they tear through them with reckless abandon, and like musical easter eggs, there always seem to be more in waiting, right around the corner. That same fertile musical playground encouraged the Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 119: Dream Syndicate – “How Did I Find Myself Here”

0 Submitted by on Mon, 27 November 2017, 10:33
Let’s get into the Dream Syndicate (or perhaps not, as they didn’t get into much of anything from the years 1989-2012). Here in 2017, they’re back with new work, How Did I Find Myself Here? Spirited discussions ensue as to whether they have moved on from their previous incarnation (ca.1989), from the “Paisley Underground,” a scene in Los Angeles that I’m Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 118: Wolf Alice – “Visions of a Life”

Wolf Alice…Wolf Alice? It’s one of those band names like 10,000 Maniacs that reminds you that band names are less about musical content and more about whats funny when you are having beers after band practice… Metallica=Metal+Vodka (not making this up) Was gonna show some more examples, but do I really need to? SO…podcast overlord Chris Cox hates it when Continue Reading...
