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.
Welcome back to another wonderful week here in new music land. We’ve got a smorgasbord of only the freshest tunes for your obsessive enjoyment. Tracks from Ms. Lauryn Hill, Thurston Moore, & The Features. You’ll also want to pay attention to the exquisite cover that Nite Jewel tackles from the catalog of Kate Bush, as well as Real Estate covering The Nerves.
For further enticement, Britt & Alex from Spoon are here to hang out, and comedian Rory Scovel takes his turn as guest DJ. So don’t delay, push the button play.
Not only did Richard Hell belong to the blank generation, he helped create it. He and Sean Cannon talked about what it was like to become a punk rocker when there was no punk rock, his transition from full-time musician to full-time author, and what it was like to condense his entire universe into a book (his recent autobiography, “I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp”).
Dwight Yoakam is a man who’s always got a lot going on. The country legend sat down with Kyle Meredith to discuss his new on-camera moment in CBS’s Under The Dome, the state of country music, his history, and his next record.
What an incredible week! New Leonard Cohen and Johnny Marr. A supergroup of Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith, Rhiannon Giddens & T Bone Burnett resurrect old Dylan & The Band songs. Nicole Atkins covers Springsteen, Afghan Whigs cover The Police, and a Flaming Lips side project covers The Beatles.
On top of that, we’ve got country legend Dwight Yoakam as our featured guest and Television’s Richard Hell as our guest DJ!
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.

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!
