Modcast #404: New Cool Old School

2018-04-23T07:42:16.321-07:00

Jazz has always played a big part of the mod lifestyle, indeed it was arguably the founding sound of the original mods. Over the years R&B, soul, power pop and other musical styles have become even more dominant in some ways. But elements of jazz always have been and always will be a mainstay of mods the world over. I'm not a deep jazz cat by any means, but I like jazz. I've got lots of jazz favorites like from the early stuff like Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, and Count Basie, and of course all the various flavors of mod jazz from Jimmy Smith, Chico Hamilton, Miles Davis, and so on. So, this week I'm veering a little more contemporary with more modern mod friendly jazz acts.

I'm baaaaaack. And with a very cool show of very cool covers. Everybody loves a good cover song. I've got a baker's dozen of them for you that showcase some of the best. What makes a good cover? Everybody has a different answer, but for me it's when a band surprises you somehow. Either with an atypical but spot on tribute, like The Ramones did on occasion, or when they simply outshine the original with a unique twist of some sort. Whatever it is that makes a good cover we all know one when we hear one, and you're going to hear a bunch on this modcast.

There's about a dozen weeks left in the year and I've got seven modcasts to pump out in order to hit show #400. I was hoping to do that this year, but it's going to be tight. But I pumped one out for you this week that has lots of cool new music, as well as some ... er, shall we just call them more experienced sounds?

The Corner Laughers vocalist debuts a soft and sensational new solo album

2017-10-03T16:23:43.313-07:00

seamless="" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=4052690267/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/artwork=small/transparent=true/" style="border: 0; height: 120px; width: 100%;">King's Daughters Home For Incurables by Karla Kane

The Corner Laughers have become one of my favorite groups over the past decade. It's surprising because I'm not to fond of folk music, and they have folksiness in spades. Rather than folksy though I've always heard a sort of twee, poppishness to their songs. Vocalist Karla Kane has always ridden atop the Laughers music effortlessly, an integral part of the whole. When I realized the latest release was a solo project I wondered how that would sound. And now I know. It sounds great. Again surprising to me is my enjoyment of what can only be called a folk album. Kane's voice is strong and striking as always, reminding a little bit of She & Him's Zoey Daschenal not because they sound so similar but because they have this sort of ethereal quality that belies an elegant and underlying strength. They both share a softness around the edges that works especially well here for Kane when coupled with the thought provoking lyrics on songs like All Aboard, the feminist folk of Don't Hush Darling, and the album's title track King's Daughters Home For Incurables. Another striking song is Lilac Line, with Kane's customary ukulele twanging along, it boasts a catchy chorus and builds to what amounts to a crescendo for an otherwise subtly understated album. And it reminded me just a bit of the Beautiful South, which is a good thing in my book. Overall this is a strong and enjoyable solo debut, and maybe will inspire me to expand my listening boundaries even a bit further. I'm not going to stop hoping for another right proper album from the Laughers as a whole though!

Karla Kane's King's Daughters Home For Incurables will be released October 6th and you can order it here.



Modcast #392: What Is The Perfect Pop Song?

2017-09-19T23:31:29.092-07:00

What is the perfect pop song? Good luck on getting an answer. Most of us can't agree on what a pop song is, let alone which ones are perfect. Or near to. But, Mary Queen of Cosmos had the guts, the chutzpah, the balls if you will, to take up Mr. Suave's challenge to figure out the modern day perfect pop song. It's a good show with quote, "a lot of good upstroking and downstroking", so you know you're going to enjoy it on some level. What do you think? What is the perfect pop song, if there is such a thing? Are any of these that? I'll be the judge. The jury. And the executioner. If the Queen of Cosmos is lucky she will while away the rest of her life in musical purgatory. But if she's very, very lucky (hint, hint, I'm the judge) she won't have to pay for all the vodka she wasted making all those cosmos to make this show listenable.

Modcast #390: Joe Strummer's Bootcamp

2017-08-25T14:30:28.629-07:00

Unless you've been living under a rock you know all about the recent outbreaks of violence during protests, anti-protests, free speech marches, and so on. From Portland, OR to Portland, ME; Boston, Phoenix, Seattle, San Francisco, Louisville. It seems like there is some sort of unrest just about everywhere. None of it more publicized though than the white supremacists and neo-Nazi's who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia. We shouldn't be surprised, this has happened many times before. Sadly, it will likley happen many times again. Listen nowDownloadThis now famous quote from uber-contrarian Henry Rollins has been popping up in memes and social media over and over again. "This is not the time to be dismayed, this is punk rock time. This is what Joe Strummer trained you for." That got me and Mary Queen of Cosmos thinking and drinking (we do a lot of both). Who are the people Joe trained? Who are the graduates of Joe Strummer's Bootcamp? This week's modcast highlights just a few. The Clash -- Know Your Rights (1982)Gil Scott Heron -- The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (1970)Jamila Woods -- Blk Girl Soldier (2016)The Julie Ruin -- I Decide (2016)Billy Bragg & Wilco - All You Fascists (2000)X -- See How We Are (1987)Propagandhi - White Proud and Stupid (1998)Body Count - No Lives Matter (2017)A Tribe Called Quest -- We The People (2016)Chumbawamba - Enough Is Enough (1994)The Offspring - L.A.P.D.

Modcast #389: Unofficial Tiki Oasis 2017 International Intrigue Mix

2017-08-06T18:31:57.529-07:00

As is his usual modus operandi Ken from the cocktail syndicate is back with the officially Unofficial Tiki Oasis 2017: International Intrigue mix. It's really chapping my hide to have to listen to this since for the first time in a few years I'm not attending Tiki Oasis. I had to buy a roof and some siding for the house --neither of which I ever get to really look at you know seeing as they're on the outside and I'm on the inside-- which really put a dent in the old pocketbook. And following on the heels of my trip to New York, where the Suave's spent money like drunken sailors on leave, and ahead of an upcoming mele kalikimaka holiday expedition to the Hawaiian islands, money is tight. Like .... well never mind what it's tight like. Get a cocktail and loosen up for a good time. Listen NowDownload01. Hugo Montenegro & His Orchestra - Come Spy With Me (Come Spy With Me, 1966)02.

Modcast #388: Deep Diving the Revival

2017-07-31T13:12:07.295-07:00

Welcome to Modcast #388 in which I deep dive the mod revival and post-punk late '70s early '80s mod revival this week. There are a few here that most of you will know, but much of the rest is a bit more obscure. But no less better for being less renowned that's for sure. If you know 'em all, and if you don't sit back and enjoy the show.

Modcast #387: Twophers

2017-07-16T14:07:06.974-07:00

It's double the listening pleasure, twice as nice, two times the fun, on all new Modcast #387: Twophers. Because, I'm playing two tracks from every artist this week. Started out with a couple of bands that I just couldn't decide which track to include, and so I thought what the hell I'll play both. And, so here we are with a whole of show of double doses of musical goodness.

That's right I've got ten full years of modcasting under my belt now. So welcome to season eleven. And that puts us at the halfway mark of 2017, so I've got lots of new music from the first of half of the year.
