Emma Swift

We have a couple of new names today. We start off with Coffis Brothers from Santa Cruz, CA. Daniel Donato comes from Nashville and we have a new one from Molly Tuttle from San Francisco with a phenomenal cover of She’s A Rainbow. Coming back, we have Kathleen Edwards from Canada and legendary Mary Chapin Carpenter featuring Duke Levine on killer lead guitar together in a stunning tribute to The Rolling Stones. We also check out John Dowler’s new track and we are especially delighted to hear Dan Penn’s new tunes. Emma Swift has a new record and it’s entirely consisted of Bob Dylan covers. The record is cleverly titled Blonde on The Tracks.

Cary Morin

Today’s episode is inspired by the new music more or less connected to Louisiana. We start off with the new names for us, one-man-band Jesse Dayton and native American guitarist Cary Moran. John Paul Keith is next with a Cajun tune on his latest live album, specially prepared to close the gap between releases during the pandemic. Slavic Soul Party also released a similar live effort. They are a brass band showcasing Balkan folk traditions, but Balkan brass bands are really not all that different to the New Orleans brass and I think it can be heard on the tune I selected for this show. Legendary Louisiana Le Roux are back with the new record. Rhiannon Giddens has a new single, and we check it out today as well.

2nd Grade

We have a nice powerpop oriented show today. We are starting with the new album for Greg Pope and follow up with yet another release by Daniel Romano this year (is anyone counting still?). Lemon Twigs are back with another shiny album. Built To Spill from Boise ID, return with an album that fully consists of Daniel Johnston’s reinterpretations. 2nd Grade is a new name that comes from Philadelphia. Their album is packed with short, catchy songs that are instant favorites. Speaking about short catchy songs, Guided by Voices are also back with a new one. Is anyone still counting those? Also from Ohio, we introduce Librarians with Hickeys. Cocktails from San Francisco released a wonderful little masterpiece this year entitled Catastrophic Entertainment. That and a bunch of other recent and not so recent pop tunes, today at the Little Lighthouse!

Billy Nomates

Little Lighthouse is usually centered around music recorded with live drum and good guitars. Very rarely do we play synthesized beats and keyboard driven music. This episode is an exception. Nearly all songs are either synthesizer based or contain synthesized beats. Fake music. Lügenmusik. I promise it’s just a one-off. I’m really not an expert in this style of music. But enough interesting new tunes came in to build a good show and it also left us with enough space to look for some classics. We begin with the new tune for Psychedelic Furs and continue with a new name for us, Billy Nomates (or Tor Maries). Then we check out a new track from Metrolight (in Cleveland) and Can Tan from Turkey. Key Out come from Australia and we check out one of the latest tunes from Moon Duo. Dead Milkman Joe Jack Talcum has a new synth based dune and the new EP from Sculpture Club is based on synths.

Warfrat

        Friction, rust, salt air, lust
        Passion in its final heat
        Real life with its final cheat
        California’s falling falling…
                …into the ocean

        100 Flowers, 1983

We have a very special show today. Vitus Matare of Warfrat Grammophon sent us a new compilation record entitled Son of Warfrat Tales, Last Notes From Pompeii. The original release was scheduled for 1990 and it was intended to be a souvenir for the bands that hung out at Lyceum Recordrs in California. Vitus put together this comp to help raise money for the rent at Lyceum, but only a few cassettes were copied back in 1990. 30 years later, 300 copies of a CD were printed, so I guess it’s still a bit of a souvenir! But it’s really great to hear this album. We use it as a guide to remind ourselves of some other truly important compilation records that defined the 80s underground and they are very much related to Son of Warfrat Tales. Original Warfrat Tales from 1983 is an obvious one to refer to. This album introduced to the world a stunning list of Los Angeles bands that in many ways shaped the 80s rock scene. Another related compilation that we’re going back to in this show is Keats Rides A Harley and the Happy Squid Sampler both from 1981 that predate Warfrat Tales. These were organized by the members of Urinals. All these, augmented with great extra material, are available on the secondary market as CDs (although maybe not so easily). Since Son of Warfrat Tales contains slightly newer bands, we also refer to the legendary Radio Tokyo Tapes organized by Ethan James (criminally, still not reissued…) And finally, Vitus says don’t forget Hell Comes to Your House (Bemisbrain 1981)… no we won’t! Finally, big thanks to Vitus for sending us this new, ultra rare disc!
