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.
A standup week that includes the newest Prince, Weezer, and the first record from Damien Rice in 8 years. On top of that, I’ve totally fallen for the new Beach Slang and Two Inch Astronaut. Definitely dig into those. Oh, and don’t miss our guests! Ray Lamontagne talks Supernova and Andrew Bird spins The Handsome Family.
Local Natives wrapped up a banner run behind their sophomore record, Hummingbird, but not before dropping in for a chat with Kyle Meredith to discuss the rough patch they had preceding the LP, the comedown after touring, and news on their next album.
While Kyle Meredith was out on his honeymoon, Sean Cannon took the controls for this week’s mix of new music. That means you get Jose Gonzalez covering Arthur Russell, Strand of Oaks covering The National, and new cuts from Parquet Courts, The Jazz June, Twilight Sad, The Staves and much more. On top of that, Cameron Esposito is the guest DJ (Cabaret?) and Local Natives are here to give us the scoop on their unannounced third LP!
Mike Doughty just released his latest album, Stellar Motel, a record that finds him working with a hip hop producer, as well as several hip hop artists from the NYC queer rap scene. Mike gave Kyle the scoop on his own discovery of that crew and much more in this phone interview.
Tyler Joseph & Josh Dun catch up with Kyle Meredith to talk about their wildly successful year, being an independent band, religion, ukuleles, and their next record.
Yep, U2 released their first record in 5 years for free to 500 million people. Big news. But it’s not the only news. We’ve also got new tracks from Walk the Moon, Weezer, King Tuff, Julian Casablancas (of The Strokes), and the first Aphex Twin song in 13 years! On top of all that, Twenty One Pilots is on the show to talk about their huge-o year and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) is the guest DJ. Dig it. read more…
