Welcome to The Weekly Feed!
It's a one hour specialty show hosted by Kyle Meredith from the WFPK studios in Louisville, KY. We find the newest, best, and most discussed tracks making waves across the net and compile them all into a mixtape bent on keeping you up-to-date.
Annie Clark of St. Vincent & Olivia Jean from The Black Bells drop into this week’s show to hang and chat, and we’ve got new tracks from Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten, Jose Gonzalez, Kate Pierson, Modest Mouse, and Mew.
Carl Newman isn’t just the frontman of The New Pornographers. He’s also a dad, a husband, a homeowner, a fan of The Monkees, and a down-to-earth member of the indie rock elite. Sean Cannon and he talked about his preference for Nesmith over Parsons, his appreciation for Mark Kozelek’s honesty (even when it comes across as pettiness), and having no idea what works musically — until the moment you hear it, anyway.
Shara Worden, the mastermind behind My Brightest Diamond, released one of the best albums of 2014, This Is My Hand. Kyle Meredith caught up with her backstage at Austin’s ACL Fest to talk marching bands, ghosts, religion, and Detroit.
Aching for that taste of new music? Dive in for tracks from Iron & Wine, The Staves, Matthew E. White, Django Django, Matt & Kim, and Noel Gallagher, as well as cuts featuring Andy Kim and Brian Wilson. Plus, we’ll be joined by Shara Worden from My Brightest Diamond and A.C. Newman from New Pornographers!
