Rodcast #11 - The Secret Genius of Robert Pollard Vol. 1: A Boy in Motion

September 22, 2009 10:06 AM

Well looky here! We have a brand new mini-series of rodcasts to unveil. It's all songs by ONE GUY!! Sounds great, right? This guy is the greatest songwriter in rock and roll history though. BOOM, I said it, and I meant it. A lot of people are familiar with Robert Pollard's work on Guided by Voices' most popular albums, but this dude has unleashed probably somewhere around 8,000 songs into the world and so I'm gonna play some of his songs from the lesser recognized releases: very early GBV stuff, solo albums, other projects, B sides, unreleased. Some will be scratchy weird recordings, some will be bombastic full band studio affairs. It will all be filled with melody, poetry, and weird beauty. Get in. Get deep, you will be rewarded for your openness.
1. A Boy in Motion, 2. Artificial Light, 3. (I'll Name You) The Flame That Cries, 4. Liar's Tale, 5. Sing It Out, 6. I Can See It In Your Eyes, 7. Canteen Plums, 8. Father's Favorite Temperature, 9. Tropical Robots, 10. Headache Revolution, 11. Real, 12. Alone, Stinking, & Unafraid, 13. Quicksilver, 14. Larger Massachusettes, 15. The Ascended Master's Grogshop, 16. Stoke Newington Blitzkrieg, 17. Paper Girl, 18. Love Is Stronger Than Witchcraft, 19. Love Hurts (w/Kim Deal)

RODCAST RETURNS! It's back and now you can totally suscribe and it will automatically show up in your itunes or whatever! You should totally suscribe. This will also be the way that we will dip internet exclusive mp3s to you.
Rodcast #3, though! It is a joyful noise. An exultation to the world saying "DON'T YOU FORGET ABOUT ME." You had me down for a minute, but I have too many positive atoms zipping around. For me specifically it is a representation of escaping from a deep sickness. SEE YA SICK SUCKER. Spring energy flows.
Also trying to make a cool mixtape for a highlight tape to thereotically go along video of cool dunks from March Madness. Rebirth, word.

Rodcast #2 - Winter is Patient

February 28, 2007 9:41 PM

DJ Totally Cutie/DJ Hot Air Balloon (this one is billed to Hot Air Ballon for reasons known only to him) has returned with mini-mix No. 2(this one is slightly less mini clocking in at 25 minutes). A mix of the slow burn candle that lights the winter nights and the urgency of human feeling. I originally was wanting to jam LOTS of songs into a small space with lots of cuts, but the feeling of letting the songs breathe deeply and waiting for the next one just sorta overtook in the process. I don't mind saying that I'm pretty pleased with the mood it taps into. Tracklist: 1.Melodium - Flacana 06, 2.Sam Cooke - Nothing Can Change This Love (live at the Harlem Square Club), 3.Mary Timony - W.O.W., 4.The Game - Scream On Em, 5.Ciara - I Proceed, 6.Pitbull - Voodoo, 7.Roland P. Young - Row Land, 8.Fleetwood Mac - Walk a Thin Line, 9.Uilab - St. Elmo's Fire. I hope you like.
