Today is the 10 year anniversary of what I think was probably the best show I ever put on air. That Saturday morning, as a tip of my friend Badger, we had a singer songwriter from Hammon, LA Damien Youth who is a local and underground legend who is putting out self released tapes and cd-rs since the 80s. He played a live set and also selected a number of songs from his musical collection. Today we revisit parts of that show and also check up with Damien and hear his two fresh songs that he sent to us. As a bonus, we also have a brand new song for Zane Armstrong, Damien’s songwriting partner.
Talking about the do-it-yourself geniuses, we also have a brand new song for R. Stevie Moore. He joined forces with Ariel Pink for the new tunes. Also, we have Stereo Soul Fire from Boston for the first time at the show, as well as Jonathan Wilson from Los Angeles. He has an album with an old Gordon Lightfoot tune on it, which is interesting, because The Krayolas also have a tune about Lightfoot on their new album. We also have new tune by Giant Sand which is about to show up on the forthcoming album Luz De Vida – a benefit for the victims of the Tucson shootout that happened on January 8 2011. The Residents also have a new album, so if you want to hear the only playlist ever which transitions from The Residents to Gordon Lightfoot – you’re at the right place.
