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.
Sean Cannon joins me again for a rundown of the week’s headlines and you’re in store for some great stuff. Fist up, there’s going to be a Back to The Future Musical, Conor Oberst and his screenplay that’s based on Monsters of Folk, the whole Chili Peppers at the Super Bowl, as well as the Bob Dylan ads, an (Un)Grateful Dead reunion, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s impact on music.
Ben Sollee recently recorded and released a covers record (for free!) called The Hollow Sessions as a present to his fans. The cellist sat down with kyle Meredith to give the back-story on the compilation as well as his news on a Paul Simon tribute and what’s in store for the next LP.
Hear ye, hear ye! The latest and greatest Weekyly Feed awaits your baited ears. New songs from the likes of Elbow and Cloud Nothings. A great collaboration between Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, and tons of covers from NO, Lana Del Rey, CHVCHES, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. The wise, Mr. Ben Sollee will also be here with his magic cello. Don’t ignore the signs, this is the cure for your wintertime blues.
This week, Erin Keane gives us the update on her new book before we launch into updates on Prince’s war against the internet, Justin Beiber’s deportation, Lorde’s truthers, Phil Collins’s recent discovery of Adele, Rutgers University’s new course on Beyonce, and the “Beatles” reunion.
He’s a Weekly Feed regular, one of our favorite artists to have on, Joseph Arthur is back with The Ballad of Boogie Christ. We talk religion, trilogies, going back home, movies and musicals.
Now that we’re a month into 2014, I’ll quote Grammy winner Lorde when she sings, “we’re getting good at this.” The hits keep tumbling in and it’s all we can do not to turn this into a two hour show. For instance, this week shines on Beck, who’s first album in six years gives it’s first single, Damon Albarn (who finally went solo after launching half a dozen bands)The Notwist, Sabina from The Brazilian Girls, and Dr. Dog covering Saint Rich. Then there’s Joseph Arthur joining us once again. And last, but nowhere near least, the amazing feat that our own Sean Cannon accomplished with his Super Bowl Shuffle.
Dallas Green of City and Colour sits down with Kyle Meredith to talk about The Hurry and The Harm, his hardcore past, poetry and Kentucky, pop music, Grand Theft Auto, and beer.
This week’s recipe calls for one part Rufus, another splash of Lilly Allen, blended with a Dean Wareham solo single, and a lot of sparkle from Foster the People. Throw on some Jenny Lewis for a tasty side dish and invite City & Colour over and you’ve got yourself a darn-tootin’ good dinner party.
Also, that’s this week’s soundtrack. Dig in.
It’s been a few years since Brooks Ritter has given us a new record, but that changes in 2014. Kyle Meredith sat down with the Louisville musician to get the scoop on his latest endeavor and much more on this week’s episode of The Setlist (WAVE 3, NBC).
Another week, another full seven days for musicians to pull off a mountain of WTF moments. Little Bieber’s egg-toss game has the pop star in trouble with the police, Springsteen parodies one of his biggest fans, Thurston Moore’s latest marriage falls apart, a soda named BritPop, and a college coarse taught by the Watermelon Man.
