DSM 10:07:23 AM
I wish I could turn this up to insane levels right now
Andy Wing 10:08:15 AM
Sounds a bit like Talk Normal, any affiliation?
Colin 10:08:34 AM
the crew who works outside my office gets to listen to TG as well! #speakerscranked!
Brian D 10:10:15 AM
I know one member is from the band Trans Am. And they have a great band photo parody of Police Zenyatta Mondatta
Jen Redlights (host) 10:11:40 AM
One is Trans Am, one works in public radio, and I need to see the photo!

Christine 🦉 10:18:58 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 10:19:08 AM

Mike Rand 10:20:16 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 10:20:42 AM
Maybe we need to publish some more in the fanzine or blog…
Mike Rand 10:25:08 AM
Great week to the "forced" to work from home.
uno clay 10:25:16 AM
oh man this song, i used it in a short film pitch a while ago, just for the outstanding weirdness.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:25:33 AM
You did!? That so rad!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:26:08 AM
It’s soooooo weird and strangely comforting
uno clay 10:26:40 AM

Jen Redlights (host) 10:26:59 AM
Christine 🦉 10:27:59 AM

Danosaur 10:29:55 AM
Good morning!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:30:08 AM
Good morning!
Danosaur 10:30:37 AM
That last song was oddly catchy.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:31:20 AM
That’s what I mean! It feels wrong yet I also warm and fuzzy
Danosaur 10:32:18 AM
This song has an IDLES vibe
Christine 🦉 10:34:35 AM
@Colin, also Tracy Wilson's Turntable Report is a valuable resource on new & notable albums. @Jen, I think you recommended it, and also Jon Solomon probably recommended it. You can sign up to receive emailed reports. Good stuff!
Brian D 10:34:55 AM
Ooh yeah. . Forgot about Lisasinson. nice
Mike Lupica 10:36:06 AM
Bike stolen while at punk show = 50 points.
Colin 10:36:31 AM
thanks christine! valuable resource that I was unaware of. totally gonna sign up and get a jump start on 2022 releases.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:36:36 AM
Hahaha that’s the first positive I’ve seen from that one!
Brian D 10:36:40 AM
Ooh yeah this one! So many great Running Redlights moments!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:36:52 AM
And Tracy’s newsletter is terrific!
Christine 🦉 10:37:30 AM
Thank you to the PRB DJs who gave Turntable Report a shout out. ✨
Brian D 10:38:03 AM
Clap. Stomp. No one lives below us at the moment. Standing desk work at home dance party!
esoterica! 10:38:44 AM
Hi Colin! Hi Christine! I love these best of wrap up shows too, Colin
Mike Lupica 10:41:00 AM
I admit being super late to the Sleaford Mods, but this was definitely one of my favorites of 2021.
Christine 🦉 10:41:04 AM
Hi Esoterica! 👋 How are you doing?
Jen Redlights (host) 10:41:45 AM
Mike, I got to see them a few years ago, and they were surprisingly entertaining
Jen Redlights (host) 10:42:01 AM
I need to make some radio edits ;)
Brian D 10:42:34 AM
Kiwi Jr way up on the list
Mike Lupica 10:42:48 AM
Oh I can send you some de-fuckalyzed versions!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:43:01 AM
Oooooh yes please!
Mike Lupica 10:43:20 AM
They just toured the UK w/ Dry Cleaning and Billy Nomates and wow, whatta bill.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:43:37 AM
Billy Nomates too??? Holy shit
Colin 10:43:40 AM
Kiwi jr, is surprisingly Canadian.
Jen Redlights (host) 10:44:08 AM
Kiwi Jr has to be one of the Canadian est bands ever. Soooooo nice.
Brian D 10:45:14 AM
Ya the 1st time I heard of Sleaford Mods was 2010s and watched/ listened to some video. 2 guys and a larger number of c-words! Ha. But that word is like breathing out over there.
uno clay 10:45:21 AM
i like this, its genuine and nice
esoterica! 10:45:32 AM
Thanks, Christine! Feeling much better
Christine 🦉 10:46:37 AM
Oh good, @Eso!
Mike Lupica 10:46:42 AM
Brian, I think I had the same experience. Ever since seeing some random Sleaford Mods video years ago, I've had a dim awareness that I was missing out on something that I probably would've liked a whole lot, but for whatever reason, I just never go to them until now.
esoterica! 10:48:34 AM
Same here, mike
Andy Wing 10:50:40 AM
Just signed up for the Turntable Report. Looking forward to some good reading.
Mike Lupica 10:52:51 AM
A friend of mine recently pointed out an intriguing detail re: Sleaford Mods. He said that there are presently three super lefty (politically) post-punk bands that are real popular in the UK (Sleaford Mods, IDLES, and Fat White Family) and apparently they all HATE EACHOTHER'S GUTS. (In a very British tabloid-y kind of way... lots of public sniping at one another, etc.)
Mike Lupica 10:53:07 AM
I haven't investigated this myself (and I like IDLES and Fat White Family, too, so I have no skin in any related argument), but kinda interesting.
Brian D 10:53:28 AM
yeah Mike i heard that very minimal "drum-machine-sounding" SMs song back then.. And I did not pay attention to them for a long time.. then good ol prb played that yellow l.p. last year (well what limited tracks they could play ha) and i like them now
Jen Redlights (host) 10:54:30 AM
Oh that’s funny! Idles is real popular these days too, no? Maybe a turf war. I bet these guys (from Ireland) hate them all too.
Brian D 10:54:37 AM
Ooohh the hate between them wow that's interesting... I smell great indie documentary!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:54:58 AM
Also this EP is sooooooo goooooood
Mike Lupica 10:55:03 AM
Haha, yeah, stand back Brian Jonestown Massacre and Dandy Warhols!
Jen Redlights (host) 10:55:33 AM
Oh god, now THAT was a documentary. Made me hate them both deeply.
Mike Lupica 10:56:09 AM
I love that movie. It has no protagonists.
Brian D 10:56:09 AM
If you liked Dig! And you like The C-word... you'll LOVE this movie....
Jen Redlights (host) 10:56:12 AM
Documentary, pr stunt, potato…potato
Christine 🦉 10:56:34 AM
All this ill will is making dish-washing much more entertaining. Scrub that pot!
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:56:35 AM
@ esoterica! Sorry to read you weren't feeling well. Glad you're better. May you continue to bloom -- sonically and in every way!
esoterica! 10:57:36 AM
thanks, richard. had a spot of omicron
Brian D 10:58:21 AM
I could imagine being in a band with Anton or being in his orbit might new somewhat challenging. Gave hope to those kids that aspire to be a tambourine player in a retro garage psych band that film did. And .. sideburns
Jen Redlights (host) 10:59:19 AM
Christine, this will help you get through them faster!
DSM 10:59:22 AM
Can we insert Liam Gallagher into this new movie somehow?
Mike Lupica 11:01:21 AM
Through a strange series of events which are not worth going into right now, I once spent several hours hanging out with Anton in a small group of people and much to my (shock? surprise? disappointment?), he was... very sweet and kind.
esoterica! 11:02:29 AM
nice, mike. and you weren't super nervous and didn't talk like when you saw pj harvey, was it?
Christine 🦉 11:02:31 AM
YESSSSSSSSS 💜 Spiritual Mafia!
DSM 11:02:41 AM
@Mike, I've also spent some time with Anton, and also Courtney, and they were both very nice. Tho I was able to see certain things that if you spend more time with them it could get obnoxious.
Brian D 11:03:05 AM
Gremlin station id! And Spiritual Mafia! This is the 1st tune i heard and it was on this very show right about this time last year!
Colin 11:03:36 AM
i was typing something but my brain cancelled the thought and I deleted because, Spiritual Mafia!!!
Mike Lupica 11:03:43 AM
Haha Esoterica. Yeah, that was... different. And totally agree, DSM. He was *very*intense* in a way that I could see getting hard to manage after a while.
Danosaur 11:03:50 AM
Never heard Spiritual Mafia before but I like it!
Christine 🦉 11:03:55 AM
Mike Lupica 11:03:55 AM
Wait, this band has another song??!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:03:57 AM
Oh yay!, hahahahaha spiritual mafia winning hearts and minds
Christine 🦉 11:04:16 AM
LOL @Mike
DSM 11:04:17 AM
Bath Boy only dines Al Fresco!
DSM 11:04:29 AM
have tub, will travel
Danosaur 11:04:42 AM
Dinner reservations have never sounded so good
Jen Redlights (host) 11:04:45 AM
Ok, I’ll rethink Anton et al….
uno clay 11:05:04 AM
i wonder how he feels about dining outdoors
Jen Redlights (host) 11:05:12 AM
Al fresco truly never was so fraught, which maybe why this song is perfect
Brian D 11:05:19 AM
Ozz content! From the land down under where everyone has a nickname that ends in -az or -oz
esoterica! 11:05:44 AM
wow jen, thanks for letting me in on the musical items i missed or forgot momentarily about. and i mean that sincerely. this is awesome!
Brian D 11:06:13 AM
Ello Baz meet Jaz meet Boz....
Jen Redlights (host) 11:06:17 AM
Esoterica, I’m flattered!!
esoterica! 11:06:35 AM
yes, jen, daddy, i do NOT want to dine alfresco (insert veruca salt voice)
Jen Redlights (host) 11:06:43 AM
So stoked you can all relive the good parts of the year with me
Jen Redlights (host) 11:06:51 AM
esoterica! 11:06:52 AM
menacing voice
Colin 11:07:20 AM
When the day comes and Spiritual Mafia plays a show in area..... talk about thank you santa!
esoterica! 11:07:35 AM
love this song, this album, love CB
Brian D 11:08:19 AM
Yeah this is great. Nice pillowy landing here
Jen Redlights (host) 11:08:25 AM
Could it be more heartbreaking?
Brian D 11:12:41 AM
Triple Chris? Is Mr Forsyth next?
DSM 11:14:35 AM
Thought I missed a Dirty Three release for a second! Gonna have to check this out
DSM 11:14:53 AM
Is Bill Orcutt Harry Pussy?
Jen Redlights (host) 11:16:27 AM
Not that I’m aware of? Anyone?
Jen Redlights (host) 11:18:10 AM
I lied! He is!
Andy Wing 11:18:34 AM
Multiple Florida Men, sort of like the multiple bands named "Area"?
Christine 🦉 11:18:48 AM
Big Blood connection: love it! Four women from southern Maine; that's an automatic yes
Brian D 11:18:55 AM
Ya that Corsano Orcutt was a highlight of listening to WPRB last year
DSM 11:20:02 AM
Thanks for confirmation, I missed that one. That's why I love these year end wraps!
DSM 11:20:32 AM
Area Man
Jen Redlights (host) 11:21:01 AM
Area Man and Florida Man, obviously we will lobby them to tour
Christine 🦉 11:21:02 AM
Yeah Frankie!
Christine 🦉 11:21:29 AM
Sorry, neighbors...
DSM 11:21:48 AM
There was a Man Man, maybe still is
Jen Redlights (host) 11:22:15 AM
And The Men, of course
Brian D 11:22:19 AM
I mistakenly thought they were from Aus
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:23 AM
With good reason!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:23:55 AM
Them + King Gizzard = pretty fab
DSM 11:24:04 AM
Has that Aus band sound. Aus Man.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:24:46 AM
DSM 11:25:07 AM
Listening to DTO this morning I was thinking it's only a matter of time before King Gizz does a Zeuhl album
Brian D 11:26:22 AM
I think that was the connection. I heard Frankie and King Gizz a lot in a short period of time and assumed FatWF were Aus. .... well look at that.... ha!
Brian D 11:28:24 AM
Speak of and they appear .
Jen Redlights (host) 11:30:08 AM
Here to please!
Mike Lupica 11:32:16 AM
Damn, I step away to make lunch for The Child and I missed Frankie aTWF.
Jen Redlights (host) 11:33:44 AM
Darn it’s, what’s for lunch?
Christine 🦉 11:35:40 AM
This set is exhilarating, @Jen! Many red lights have been run
Mike Lupica 11:36:04 AM
Well, The Child just had reheated leftovers from last night (stir fried tofu and dumplings w/ veggies) but while digging around, I found some homemade seitan from a while ago which I'm presently defrosting for kimchi tacos, to be prepared right after your show.
Brian D 11:36:10 AM
coincidentally... i have a frozen pouch type food up on deck for lunch called a Boomerang Aussie Meat Pie. Pocket food... mmmm . Australian content continues
Jen Redlights (host) 11:36:16 AM
Awesome, Christine!! Glad you're liking it! @Mike....mmmmkimchi tabos
Jen Redlights (host) 11:36:30 AM
tabos = when you have your mouth full of tacos
Mike Lupica 11:36:40 AM
Brian D 11:39:16 AM
That reminds me... gotta pre heat the oven for that Aussie puck
Christine 🦉 11:39:57 AM
@Brian, will you be dining al fresco? 🇦🇺 🍽
Brian D 11:40:39 AM
Ha! It is supposed to be a tropical 45 degrees or so. Break out the lounge chairs
Brian D 11:41:46 AM
Brian D 11:43:44 AM
Dry Cleaning just pushes the right buttons for me
Christine 🦉 11:44:33 AM
It looks like Dry Cleaning will play Philly on 5/17.
Brian D 11:45:44 AM
I remember this one too! Get up and pogo!
uno clay 11:47:09 AM
strange urge to go eat my peanut butter bread outside today
DSM 11:48:49 AM
Another 'Man' !!
Mike Lupica 11:50:22 AM
OK Friday pitcrew... kimchi and seitan is callin
Jen Redlights (host) 11:50:36 AM
Happy eating, ML!
Mike Lupica 11:50:37 AM
Lovely to see you all this morning, thanks for tunes, Jen!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:50:46 AM
Thanks for being here!
Danosaur 11:51:13 AM
Thanks for the wake up music! Have a good day everybuddy!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:52:03 AM
Thanks a ton for being here, you guys!
DSM 11:52:07 AM
Later Mike, later Danosaur! Indeed great show today Jen, picked up a few I hadn't heard over last year. Have a great day everyone!
Jen Redlights (host) 11:52:35 AM
Thanks, DSM! One more song to come after this one.
Christine 🦉 11:53:33 AM
Have a good lunch, PRB fam! @Jen, thanks for another superlative show.🚦💯 I love hearing your Best Of picks!
Brian D 11:54:21 AM
Great great show Jen! So many faves
Jen Redlights (host) 11:56:44 AM
So awesome, you guys - this was a blast!!
