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’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.
A week full of great new tunes that include Death Cab For Cutie, Mountain Goats, Glen Hansard, Bjork, San Fermin, and The Twilight Sad. We also welcome Paolo Nutini into the interview chair and Gerard Cosloy guest DJs!
Former Black Belles frontwoman Olivia Jean stopped by the studio while on a tour of record stores in the Midwest promoting her new LP, “Bathtub Love Killings.” She and Sean Cannon talked about how she became part of the Third Man crew, how important record stores were to her musical development, and her love of the bouffant.
Annie Clark sits down with Kyle Meredith for an in depth discussion on being St. Vincent, the Grammys, being “weird,” mythology, and the politics of our day.
Annie Clark of St. Vincent & Olivia Jean from The Black Bells drop into this week’s show to hang and chat, and we’ve got new tracks from Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten, Jose Gonzalez, Kate Pierson, Modest Mouse, and Mew.
Carl Newman isn’t just the frontman of The New Pornographers. He’s also a dad, a husband, a homeowner, a fan of The Monkees, and a down-to-earth member of the indie rock elite. Sean Cannon and he talked about his preference for Nesmith over Parsons, his appreciation for Mark Kozelek’s honesty (even when it comes across as pettiness), and having no idea what works musically — until the moment you hear it, anyway.
Shara Worden, the mastermind behind My Brightest Diamond, released one of the best albums of 2014, This Is My Hand. Kyle Meredith caught up with her backstage at Austin’s ACL Fest to talk marching bands, ghosts, religion, and Detroit.
Aching for that taste of new music? Dive in for tracks from Iron & Wine, The Staves, Matthew E. White, Django Django, Matt & Kim, and Noel Gallagher, as well as cuts featuring Andy Kim and Brian Wilson. Plus, we’ll be joined by Shara Worden from My Brightest Diamond and A.C. Newman from New Pornographers!
