The Weekly Feed x The Wallflowers →

The National doing a song from the 20s, Interpol leaking out early demos, Public Enemy collaborating with Tom Morello, and the return of Yo La Tengo.

We’ve got a special guest this week, one of the greatest bartenders in the USofA, Jared Schubert. Along with Erin Keane, we talk about the tragic, tragic breakup as INXS – who were apparently still together. Also, Morgan Spurlock is doing a new documentary. It’s for One Direction. Yeah, the boy band thing. Bruce Springsteen is also getting his own documentary, but this one is fan generated,...
The Weekly Feed x Grizzly Bear →

In fact, I might just team up with those dudes and Shelby Cinca to record some new age Tuvan barbershop rag. Oh yeah, and we talked about their new record, Shields. Lots of good vibes.

Plus, there is a sample of our interview with RNDM, the new project from Joseph Arthur and Jeff Ament. Plenty to dig into.

It’s insane that the phone business industry hasn’t caught up w the 21st century. I want to buy a phone. You can’t sir. #contractsarestupid
Madge was decently ok. Liked it, didn’t love it.
Feb begins #SxSW conditioning month. The balance of prepping my liver and my walking stamina is a complicated blend.
Finally, after all these years, music and booze have met each other.
“i used to think you couldn’t spell platapus without us.” “well, you can but it would be platap.”
When did they stop putting toys in cereal boxes? This adulthood may be overrated. I’m gonna have to talk to my Zoltar machine about this.

Spilled beet soup on my carpet a few days ago and my kitchen still carries the lovely aroma

Ray Rizzo, hands down my favorite drum man
Sitting between two Muckrakers. One of them is Rob. Maybe if we all wish real hard, I can talk them into a reunion.
@questlove’s Rolling Stone chat had several inspirationals takeaways. Most imortant, I now rely on digital post-its. Thanks, Questlove!
Louisville Mag has Women Who Rock. I’m going through this year’s vinyl and agree that the future of rock is being led by awesome females.

What to do, what to do… I’m sure the night ends at Meat, but where does it begin?
Would like to thank my 4 yr old for reminding me how much fun hitting a balloon is. Gonna be doing this one even when I’m by myself.
Half hour interview complete. Brian, me, and Chris Cornell in a small room. I really hope that Brian hit the record button.
Oooookay. Gearing up to go sit down w Chris Cornell for an interview. … I may need a drink before this one.
Neck shave. My fav part of the haircut. Though, I tend to wonder what the barber thinks when I start purring.
It was 8th grade, rural KY, living a healthy dose of pop radio. A friend on the bus snuck some headphones on me. Spoonman. Changed my world.
