Jon Solomon (host) 4:59:57 PM
I have opened the chat! Hello chatters!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:08 PM
Yeah, I really love it. Still Jane Weaver, but very much trying something new.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:18 PM
This blurb for the new record is sort of amazing.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:15:32 PM
"Still prevalent are the cosmic sounds, but ‘Flock’ is a natural rebellion to the recent releases which sees her decidedly move away from conceptual roots in favour of writing pop music. Produced on a complicated diet of bygone Lebanese torch songs, 1980's Russian Aerobics records and Australian Punk."
Mary Jones 5:15:38 PM
We really have to wait until 2021??
Teresa Peacock 5:15:39 PM
Definitely! Impressed and intrigued.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:17:17 PM
Yeah. Way curious to hear more from this one. @Mary, the other JW records are super wonderful. Try the most recent one and go backwards in time. A few of her remixes are closer to the track I just aired...
Steve Klischies 5:18:15 PM
Kneeling In Piss, not familiar with them. I came over to the laptop to check the song title because I thought for sure this was a Parquet Courts song I hadn't heard before.
Steve Klischies 5:18:21 PM
Really loved it!
Mary Jones 5:18:07 PM
Cool, I will do that. I really loved the song you played.
Mary Jones 5:19:05 PM
Oh right! I have Loops in my wishlist. My memory is going.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:20:20 PM
Apologies, I did not have Auto-approve on for comments until right now.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:20:38 PM
Think it is all fixed now.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:21:02 PM
Kneeling In Piss - AWFUL band name, but they have some gems.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:24:59 PM
There's an Andy Votel remix of a Jane Weaver tune that's similarly poppy if memory serves. Votel/Weaver might be my favorite music "power couple."
Jon Solomon (host) 5:32:56 PM
Due to COVID restrictions family amd close friends are gathering for a private service on Thursday, Oct. 29th, 4:30pm, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Evanston. All others are invited to join via zoom: https://uic.zoom.us/j/86907162745?pwd=bUIxZTdyaEdvVEluWmVQNUxsamZ0UT09.
Teresa Peacock 5:33:56 PM
Yeah, I'm very fond of Votel/Weaver collabs also
Gary 5:40:53 PM
Can you please play something from Smashing Pumpkins Oceania album? Particularly, the title track ought to get airplay, if time allows.
Steve Klischies 5:47:20 PM
I really can't get enough of these EVH tribute plays
Jon Solomon (host) 5:48:21 PM
Thanks, Steve. The guitar tone on this record is so ridiculously perfect a copy.
Andrew Wilkinson 5:53:01 PM
this track is berserk
Steve Klischies 5:53:54 PM
This is absolutely fantastic.
Steve Klischies 5:54:39 PM
Is this the one you teased last week? You had mentioned you heard some VH cover that you were excited to play but didn't want to give it away quite yet...
Jon Solomon (host) 5:54:28 PM
It actually wasn't!
Steve Klischies 5:55:26 PM
Even more to look forward to.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:56:45 PM
Could be next week, but given the uncertainty between now and then, I'd guess the Wednesday after next.
Bud Burroughs 5:57:29 PM
And somehow, the segue from that to Kurt Vile worked!
Jon Solomon (host) 5:58:02 PM
I found this video of KV playing songs (including a Neil Young cover) with his kids quite charming - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSyzUlHkD2Y
Bud Burroughs 5:59:32 PM
Cool, I'll put that in my watch list for later, when there isn't so much good stuff on the radio.
Jon Solomon (host) 5:59:20 PM
That would be my plan as well.
Gary 6:01:10 PM
In keeping with the Halloween spirit, would you be able to play a non-commercial Smashing Pumpkins song?
Steve Klischies 6:14:42 PM
Steve Klischies 6:14:54 PM
It was inevitable.
Steve Klischies 6:15:35 PM
I do love Atlas Vending. Really needed a record drop like that at this point in 2020.
Jon Solomon (host) 6:16:57 PM
It feels different to their past records. Perhaps more tuneful, yet equally loud?
Steve Klischies 6:19:21 PM
Definitely as loud. I've been using the word "cleaner".
Steve Klischies 6:20:57 PM
Some of the scuzz from previous recordings isn't there, but that's not a criticism.
Steve Klischies 6:21:36 PM
Odd that if I didn't know any better, I would have thought this was the one Albini produced instead of Strange Peace.
Steve Klischies 7:03:15 PM
Another amazing song. I wish all this was under better circumstances.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:04:30 PM
Yeah, I had actually forgotten about it but the band re-posted.
Gary 7:15:11 PM
I'm not sure if this forum is intended for this, but would you be able to play something by Smashing Pumpkins? I tried to ask early in the set and not sure how free form this is, in terms of music/audio requests.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:16:21 PM
It, like all other requests, has been taken into consideration.
Gary 7:21:35 PM
Thanks. I also wasn't sure if perhaps the message itself got lost in the web.
Steve Klischies 7:34:50 PM
My goodness, this is excellent.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:35:39 PM
Dan Friel from Upper Wilds was previously in Parts & Labor. Both bands make excellent sounds.
Steve Klischies 7:39:05 PM
I just grabbed their album Mars off bandcamp
Steve Klischies 7:39:26 PM
And I will definitely check out Parts & Labor
Jon Solomon (host) 7:38:55 PM
Several of these songs are from there.
Steve Klischies 7:40:08 PM
I've enjoyed the whole set so far, but this song in particular is wonderful.
Steve Klischies 7:40:30 PM
Good lord, do I miss live shows...
Jon Solomon (host) 7:40:16 PM
This one is my fave, I think.
Steve Klischies 7:44:36 PM
The guitar (synth?) in that song was so great. What a sound.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:47:33 PM
Guitar + many, many pedals. Some voice too.
Steve Klischies 7:52:06 PM
As always, thank you so much for the show!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:53:38 PM
My pleasure. Still one more song to go!
Steve Klischies 7:53:52 PM
Well I'm going nowhere, then.
Jon Solomon (host) 7:57:59 PM
Thanks for tuning in tonight, everyone. No idea what next week's show will look like but I'll see you on the other side then.
Steve Klischies 7:58:49 PM
Vote, folks!
Jon Solomon (host) 7:59:20 PM
VOTE! Bye!
