Oh Messy Life – September 8, 2022 Show Notes
Track 1: Wizard Brain – Down the Shore
Found this on an indie pop round up from White Light // White Heat
Track 2: The Cocker Spaniels – Culture War
The line “If you try to tell me one plus one’s no longer two
I don’t see the point in talking calculus with you” grabbed me.
Track 3: Renovator’s Delight – Bark All Night
Another one from the indie pop round up, I love their bass sound.
Track 4: BRNDA – Perfect World
I put a track of theirs on a mix a while ago, a BandCamp promo email made me go back for more.
Track 5: Funny Bone – Die Laughing
Heard some folks singing their praises online, so I thought I’d check them out.
Track 6: Moira Scar, Vortex Empath Xen – FreakFace
Local bay area folks, feels like they’ve been around for a while now.
Track 7: A Certain Ratio – Yo Yo Gi
Kind of interesting to see one of the old school Post Punk bands leaning harder and harder into the funk.
Track 8: Fontaines D.C. – Skinty Fia
From the KZSU A file.
Track 9: MESAFA – Morning Dew (edit)
MESAFA is a new collaboration from Sarah FM and Alsarah. I remember getting a cassette tape of Sarah FM’s very first band on the school bus in high school.
Track 10: Billy Bates – Cold Nights in Dub
Memories of Billy singing the praises of the “King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown” album a good many years ago.
Track 11: Bennie Maupin & Adam Rudolph – SECOND MOVEMENT
From the Symphonic Tone Poem for Brother Yusef album, commissioned to honor the 100th birthday of the late Yusef Lateef.
Track 12: Toshi Kasai – Lines of Misery
Another track from the new Based On True Stories album.
Track 13: Maren Celest – Petrichor
Heard about this one from a fellow squirrel watcher.
Track 14: Jenny Scheinman – I Was Young When I Left Home
Heard this one years ago and it gets stuck in my head sometimes.
