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.
After five years of nonstop touring, The Head & The Heart are wrapping up their time on the road before some well deserved time off. But before that happens, Josiah Johnson takes some time to talk with Kyle Meredith about their most recent LP, Let’s Be Still, the folk rock boom, politics, and much more.
Our Best of 2014 continues with part two, including Jurassic 5, Alt-J, Ryan Adams, Morrissey, Jack White, Tune-Yards, My Brightest Diamond, and tons more. I’ll also be replaying some choice interviews, so tune in to hear some great conversations with The Black Keys, Conor Oberst, and the legendary John Cale.
Grab a spoon and dig in.
Paul McCartney took some time during his most recent tour at a stop in Louisville, KY to talk with Kyle Meredith about the science of songwriting, his involvement in the first-shooter game, Destiny, and downtime at home.
The end is near! Maybe not the end of the world, but the end of the year anyway. So what? So that means it’s time to spend all of December trolling through the biggest songs of 2014. Dive into part one, which also includes some pretty fab guest appearances from Man Man, Damien Jurado, and The Hold Steady.
It’s been 8 since since his last release, but the brilliant Irish songwriter, Damien Rice, has now returned with My Favourite Faded Fantasy. He recently took time to talk with Kyle Meredith in a studio-to-studio interview to dive in to the ins and outs of the new record and much more.
With it being the last episode of the year, we’re going out with a bang. Damien Rice and Yusuf (Cat Stevens) are both on this week’s show! Plus new tunes from Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, Alison Mosshart, Prawn, Nicole Atkins, and Tegan & Sara. I’ve got holiday tunes from The Flaming Lips with Yoko Ono and Houndmouth and a few more gems to boot.
OK Go are like the musical version of Science Friday. Their mind-bending videos have made them one of the most popular bands on the planet, but there’s much more than just the visual aspect. Damian Kulash talks with Kyle Meredith about their new disc, Hungry Ghosts, what they did in their recent downtime, pop music, and relationships.
This week’s dish starts with a serving of X-mas tunes courtesy of Liz Phair & Los Campesinos. Then the covers take over. Stars doing a Smiths song, First Aid Kit with a beautiful reading of Simon & Garfunkel’s America, and Lorde’s take on Bright Eyes. Add on collabs between Sleigh Bells & Tink and Gang of Four with Alison Mosshart and you’ve got an incredible week.
All that, plus an chat with OK Go and a guest DJ session from mewithoutYou!
