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.
Very few people in show business get lucky enough to have a second act. Even fewer get it entirely on their own terms. Bobcat Goldthwait is one of those lucky few. Instead of allowing eight weeks of his career define who he is, Bobcat decided to take the reins and do something uncommon in the world of Hollywood: Choose happiness and fulfillment over money and fame.
The Smashing Pumpkins released one of the most recently celebrated albums, Monuments To An Elegy, earlier this year. Kyle Meredith caught some microphone time with lead man Billy Corgan to talk about the LP’s pop driven sound, and writing “alternative” for a generation born long after the genre’s heyday.
A double of awesome as The Shamshing Pumpkins frontman drops in to visit and Sean sits with legendary comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, who guest DJs! Plus, listen for new tunes from Sufjan Stevens, Modest Mouse, Florence + the Machine, Passion Pit, Dan Deacon, Robert Pollard, Wire, and Father John Misty covering Nirvana.
Dave Bayley from Glass Animals talks with Kyle Meredith about their debut album, ZABA, hip hop, sexy beats, and hidden meanings within their lyrics.
Saddle up for another week of the biggest new songs. Catch the latest from Kathryn Calder, Alabama Shakes, Death, Rivers Cuomo, John Legend, Swervedriver, and Lord Huron. We’ll be visited by Glass Animals and producer Ethan Johns plays guest DJ!
Benjamin Booker was tagged with Next Big Thing from the moment he hit the scene. Championed by folks like Jack White, the 25 year old blends blues with punk for his ferocious self titled debut. Kyle Meredith caught up with him backstage at ACL Fest in Austin to see how he’s handling his new found fame.
Lots of discovery in this week’s playlist, including cuts from Rocky Votolato, Waters, My Bightest Diamond (in French!), and Young Fathers. Plus new tunes from Modest Mouse & Villagers and guest drop-ins from Benjamin Booker & Cass McCombs.
Sean Cannon’s conversation with musician Cass McCombs might’ve been the most “out there” 45 minutes on the show thus far. God, the nature of reality, truth, society, existing in the moment, the separation and fragmentation of the self — and just the first five minutes. OK, not really. But they did hit on all of that and more during their chat.
(Apologies for the audio problems) Paolo Nutini returned to the world of music after taking a few years off to reboot. In that time, he tells us that he became quite the handyman. Get it all and more in this backstage interview at ACL Fest.
