Dana K (host) 8:04:39 PM
wow i am DISTRACTED!
Lizbot 8:05:40 PM
isa 8:05:53 PM
i love this song!
Lizbot 8:06:07 PM
This song sounded familiar, and then I realized, oh yeah, it's Kurt!
Dana K (host) 8:06:22 PM
hi isa, hi liz! loved your playlist, i gotta start working on my show earlier so i can actually listen to your show!
Lizbot 8:06:51 PM
Love this song- AND that was ANOTHER show I missed due to covid! I had just gotten tickets to a Lilys reunion show last winter!
isa 8:06:58 PM
i added so many songs from Liz's playlist today, it was great!
Lizbot 8:07:45 PM
Hi Dana! Thanks! I went a little nuts with GAOB/ Delta 5 7"s, but I hadn't indulged in a buncha those in a while!
Lizbot 8:08:01 PM
Thanks, Isa! And it's nice to meet you!
Lizbot 8:09:53 PM
@Dana- Yeah, I was too distracted prepping for my remote live broadcast to catch Mickey's show this week :(. When I prerecorded, I could always catch the show before me, BUT I get to hear Don't But the Front no matter what!
Christine Duffy 8:10:47 PM
Rob from Maryland 8:10:52 PM
Yay vaccination!
isa 8:11:11 PM
congrats !
Lizbot 8:11:30 PM
Congrats! I keep telling my brother to get the shot in Jersey so he can SAFELY visit us!
Lizbot 8:11:52 PM
Very happy for you! Feels so good to get shot #1 over with
Dana K (host) 8:16:56 PM
for various reasons i thought i was going to have to wait until may or later to get vaccinated, but NJ pulled through for me!
yoni from kdu 8:24:33 PM
Glad JS knew that dude at CVS and convinced him to inoculate all the DJs
Dana K (host) 8:25:15 PM
DJs are essential workers (sorry, no offense to actual essential workers)
yoni from kdu 8:28:41 PM
I mean, it's right there in the name: DJ Essential Worker.
Lizbot 8:29:29 PM
Yeah, I booked an appt at a pharmacy after feeling kinda abandoned by my healthcare provider, and right after I snagged a pharmacy appt, Penn contacted me with one of their individual links to their TLA Clinic
Lizbot 8:30:08 PM
Jon sent me a lotta useful vax updates early on when I was trying to find shots for my parents! He's on top of this!
Dana K (host) 8:31:18 PM
we appreciate a vaccine nerd!
yoni from kdu 8:38:04 PM
Yoooo this is great
yoni from kdu 8:38:09 PM
I'm a convert
Dana K (host) 8:38:44 PM
i told you!

"parquet courts is for dads" - yoni, 2016

DJ | JD 8:41:46 PM
I am lovin' the animal crossing backing track LOL
yoni from kdu 8:42:00 PM
I once got hurt at a Melt Banana show at Johnny Brenda's cause people were moshing. I was very confused. And in pain.
DJ | JD 8:43:03 PM
also, I'm ashamed to admit that I'm the guy in his 20s moshing at Parquet Courts
Dana K (host) 8:45:24 PM
haha! no shade, i was just a bit surprised!
Dana K (host) 8:53:00 PM
oh i'm so glad to hear it! it's definitely near the top of my 2021 favorites so far.
crucialobject 8:53:26 PM
(periscope kids). for a while, Depending was my one
crucialobject 8:53:52 PM
the one before this on the album, the heart of human trafficking, is wild! this one playing now is special
Christine Duffy 8:53:57 PM
I'm loving this track too.
Rob from Maryland 8:54:08 PM
I loved that Helium song
Dana K (host) 8:54:34 PM
the heart of human trafficking is insane, that was the first thing i heard off the album
DJ | JD 8:54:42 PM
I'm also really digging this tune - I'm sooo about that droning guitar feedback
crucialobject 8:54:51 PM
Brokaw makes me think a bit of Lee Ronaldo and that track Hits of Sunshine for Allen Ginsberg on A Thousand Leaves
crucialobject 8:55:31 PM
:) yay the enthusiasm here hehe
DJ | JD 8:56:22 PM
I'd be moshing to this one 4 sure 8)
crucialobject 8:57:42 PM
omg. this month I've gone back to my polvo records for the first time this year. ty
crucialobject 8:58:40 PM
this album is like a structurally unsound building in a dream
Dana K (host) 8:58:43 PM
i haven't revisited them in a while, it feels like it's time
crucialobject 9:00:20 PM
City Spirit and Virtual Cold on Celebrate the New Dark Age are favorites
crucialobject 9:03:42 PM
crucialobject 9:03:53 PM
this is cool
Dana K (host) 9:05:16 PM
definitely the noisiest thing this band did!
crucialobject 9:05:48 PM
is this version hard to find?
crucialobject 9:06:08 PM
it has this amazing texture that I don't feel quite as much on a youtube version
Dana K (host) 9:06:43 PM
i grabbed it off of soulseek, took a bit of searching (wish i had the record itself, alas)
crucialobject 9:07:28 PM
ty for soulseek ๐Ÿ˜†
crucialobject 9:08:15 PM
I love that it still exists. I had to invert the colors to use it bc it looks so deprecated on my computer lol
Dana K (host) 9:09:07 PM
i've been using it since 2004 or so and it basically hasn't changed
crucialobject 9:09:55 PM
in the age of spotify, there's something very dreamy about shared folders
Dana K (host) 9:11:38 PM
oh 100% agreed
crucialobject 9:15:36 PM
ah ok I just remembered who henry's dress was making me think of. that band stove. but the other way around, historically, I guess!
crucialobject 9:15:55 PM
similar globular thrash accumulations
Dana K (host) 9:16:13 PM
i've never heard stove! that's an intriguing description!
crucialobject 9:17:01 PM
try the album "is stupider" and then the one w the toad in the oil spill on the album cover
crucialobject 9:17:13 PM
whoa this band is such a mystery to me (thinking fellers)
Dana K (host) 9:19:02 PM
oh. they're so good. practically perfect.
crucialobject 9:19:25 PM
is this the album to start w?
Andrew Gruen 9:19:40 PM
thank you for the world of pooh track :) i saw them open for rollins band a few days before they broke up
Andrew Gruen 9:20:29 PM
and it took me years to find land of thirst
Dana K (host) 9:24:35 PM
world of pooh *might* be my favorite barbara manning related project, though it's very hard to say!
jimbrewe 9:26:58 PM
i have not listened to WPRB for THREE DAYS and it's good to be back!
Anthony Boschetti 9:26:58 PM
Dana k I just heard everything I missed!! Your taste is awesome helium and polvo in the same set... Did u see Mary timony show in dc last week?
Dana K (host) 9:27:41 PM
no i totally missed it! i LOVE her!
Anthony Boschetti 9:28:14 PM
She did mountains songs for the reissue of the vinyl
Dana K (host) 9:28:24 PM
welcome back, jimbrewe! we missed you!
Dana K (host) 9:28:56 PM
yes, i considered playing a song off of that for tonight's show (along with three or four other things that involved mary timony)
jimbrewe 9:29:26 PM
nice to take a break from news, e-mail, etc. Only used the internetty for weather and scrabble challenges!
Anthony Boschetti 9:29:32 PM
Someone with the handle ash bowie was in the chat but alas and alack was not him
Dana K (host) 9:30:53 PM
an internet break seems so, so nice
Andrew Gruen 9:31:58 PM
i feel the same way, though the sf seals are a very close second
jimbrewe 9:34:54 PM
heck yeh scrmng fmls!
jimbrewe 9:36:02 PM
i think we're due for a new quadruple album
Dana K (host) 9:39:34 PM
listening to them is just making me miss live music in philly so much :(
jimbrewe 9:43:55 PM
they must have been last live band I saw
Dana K (host) 9:46:08 PM
as a fellow short person watching marissa paternoster shred is always very life-affirming
Dana K (host) 9:47:53 PM
i'm the boss!! can't stop me from playing two unrest songs back to back!
Rob from Maryland 9:48:10 PM
We were vibing out on that first Unrest song
jimbrewe 9:49:56 PM
it's an unrest-a-thon! I approve.
Rob from Maryland 9:59:05 PM
Am I hearing the word pheromones in this Another New Thing song?
Dana K (host) 10:05:20 PM
yes, rob!
jimbrewe 10:13:03 PM
luv luv dustdevils!
Rob from Maryland 10:15:17 PM
Last night (Mike Lupica's show) it was "incest" on Flaming Fire's "Lemon Isis", tonight it's "pheromones" on Another New Thing's "A Message". Love it!
yoni from kdu 10:15:43 PM
Hell yeah
Rob from Maryland 10:15:56 PM
Dana K (host) 10:16:10 PM
Versus RULES
Andrew Gruen 10:16:12 PM
Dana K (host) 10:16:22 PM
haha i'm glad you're all so pumped on this
Andrew Gruen 10:17:50 PM
they don't have a lot of fist-banging tunes besides this one
yoni from kdu 10:33:02 PM
Another god damn classic
Jason 10:36:02 PM
Hello all. I am late to show today. It looks like I missed some good stuff earlier.
Dana K (host) 10:37:04 PM
hi jason, thanks for tuning in anyway!
Dana K (host) 10:49:50 PM
thanks everyone for listening tonight, always a treat!
