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.
Will Sheff is a smart dude. If that wasn’t evident from his hyper-literate (and hyperactive) lyrics, the Okkervil River frontman proves it here by displaying his chops as a cultural critic and armchair sociologist. -Sean Cannon
Kyle Meredith catches up with Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses to hear about the band’s next record, what they’re looking for in a record label, Bridwell’s upcoming collaboration with Iron & Wine, and his newfound love for Hot Country.
The English Beat are set to release their first record since 1982 next year. Leader Dave Wakeling took some time on the phone with Kyle Meredith to give us the scoop on the upcoming LP, world politics, Scooby Doo, and much more.
Ben Bridwell joins Kyle Meredith this week to give the scoop on the next Band of Horses record, Will Sheff from Okkervil River cozies up with Sean Cannon, and you hear new tunes from Mike Doughty, Sam Amidon, Smashing Pumpkins, Stars and much more.
Sean Cannon knew this was going to be a special time when he walked in on Del the Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator (two thirds of Deltron 3030) arguing with one another about disco. Sure enough, it was a spirited conversation about hip hop, authenticity and secret mandolins. Oh and by the way, their new record, “Event 2,” is badass!
Part two of my interview with Dan The Automator and Del The Funky Homosapien, aka 2/3 of Deltron 3030. More discussion of their long awaited Event 2 LP, politics, the state of rap and much more!
Deltron 3030 returned in 2013 with the long-awaited Event 2, the followup to their turn of the millennium debut that became a cult milestone over the years. Kyle Meredith sat down with Del the Funky Homosapien & Dan The Automator to discuss their storied past, life in the future, the music of politics, and the politics of music.
This week we welcome Deltron 3030 not once, but twice! That’s right, double the hang time with Del the Funky Homosapien & Dan the Automator to discuss the legendary super-group’s comeback. Plus, new tunes from Damon Albarn & Foxygen, J Mascis duets with Cat Power, Primus re-imagines Willy Wonky, and First Aid Kit cover Jack White.
With so much greatness to dig into, you’d do yourself a service to hit play now.
This interview is not for the politically faint of heart. It is a conversation with Wayne Kramer of the MC5, after all. You know, one of the most political active and divisive bands in the history of rock and roll. That said, it’s not all politics during the interview. Wayne also discusses his musical history, how church influenced the MC5′s development, and how his time in prison has affected his life. – Sean Cannon
Sean Lennon spends his time these days in The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger, the duo he shares with Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Kyle Meredith got the scoop on the band, it’s classic sound, the bridge between classical and rock, identity, and turning pop on it’s end.
