On the Radio & Wednesday Listening
i'll be on local radio station WCHL 1360 AM Chapel Hill this afternoon from 4-6 pm as part of a panel on "the arts" in Chapel Hill and Carrboro i believe, could be interesting. i don't have any prepared remarks however.
Karl Hendricks Trio - The Jerks Win Again / The World Says, "Jerks" being a classic Karl blast from '03 featuring such gems as "Chuck Dukowski Was Confused" and The World Says being a new one (maybe not even out yet?) from the Karl Hendricks Rock Band that continues Karl's unsung winning streak. been a fan since i saw Sludgehammer at the Fallout Shelter in Raleigh back in 90ish?, and while it requires some hunting you should really keep up with what guitar-slinger and lyricist extraordinaire Karl is up to!
Hot Chip - Coming on Strong not as addictive as The Warning but charming nonetheless
Eccentric Soul - Twinight's Lunar Rotation this installment being a double-disc package of soul and funk out of Chicago, most of it more commercial and less lo-fi than some of the other Eccentric Soul comps, with the usual Numero attention to detail, this is a great one.
Rocket From the Crypt - Scream, Dracula, Scream! the major label debut is full of hits that never were, i sometimes forget about this record in relation to the first two or Live from Camp X-Ray, but i shouldn't.
Loney, Dear - Sologne catching up on the back catalog, and it's sounding good
