At the end of each month here on the Big Something we’ll be bringing you a playlist compiled by our trusty in-house and volunteer DJs. If there’s a song you like or a DJ you trust, please dowload the song and KRCC will get a small portion of the proceeds! Enjoy.
Your Friend and Neighbor Vicky (Morning Music Mix):
My choice would be “Dirty Thirty (featuring Peter Hook)” from The Crystal Method’s Divided By Night. The reason I love Dirty Thirty by the Crystal Method is that it is a total rush of Joy Division/New Order mixed with roll down the car windows, crank it up, and drive…(been missing that lately)
Buy “Dirty Thirty”
General Manager, Delaney Utterback:
“Velvet” by the Big Pink. New release on 4AD. Leave it to 4AD to do emo, and make it sound good. Plus, one of the band members is a dead-ringer for Mark E. Smith from the Fall, pre-structural collapse.
Jeff Bieri (Blue Plate Special and Afternoon Music Mix):
Neko Case’s “Middle Cyclone” – the title track to her new release on Anti Records…. a song about vulnerability – something that I, as a modern American male, often am….”
Buy “Middle Cyclone”
Jen Newman (Brickhouse, Monday Nights from 8 to 10 p.m.):
Royksopp’s “Vision One” taken from their new album Junior. It’s bouncy and dreamy and samples Stevie Wonder’s “Too High” off Innervisions. Another perfect song from these guys.
Buy “Vision One”
Jeanette Hohman (Surround Sounds, Thursdays from 10 p.m. to Midnight):
My favorite song right now is “Nothing to Worry About” by Swedish trio Peter Bjorn and John. The song opens enthusiastically with a sing-songy choir of little kids and maintains this amazing energy throughout. It’s so fun to start a set of music with this song and see where it takes me!
Buy “Nothing to Worry About”
Steve Harris (Grass Roots Revival, Wednesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):
“South Carolina Blues” by Junior League Band on Mitchell Williams Fo Govena. Not your typical bluegrass, this blues-infused track features strong vocals and banjo from bandleader Lissy Rosemont is sure to please all fans of Americana music.
Buy “South Carolina Blues”
Eric Cole (In The Groove, Tuesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):
Derek Trucks “Sweet Inspiration” off their new album “Already Free.”
Buy “Sweet Inspiration”
Matthew Stevens (Brickhouse, Mondays from 8 to10 p.m.):
Nat King Cole – Day In Day Out (Cut Chemist Mix)
Buy “Day In Day Out”
Kelly (Tuesday nights from 10 p.m. to Midnight):
My song of the month is U2’s “No Line On The Horizon,” the title track to the new album. It’s got a great feel to it, reminds me a bit of old U2 mixed with the sound of the last few albums. Great track!
Buy “No Line On The Horizon”
Jennifer Nassimbene (Right Side of My Mind, Late Monday/Early Sunday Midnight to 2 a.m):
“Mantis” by Psychic Ills off Mirror Eye (NY, 2009). Parsons Sound meets primitive Ash Ra Tempel. A good marriage of space rock, tribal drums, and eastern scales.
GT (Vintage Voltage, Saturdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):
‘Twould have to be Paul Revere and the Raiders’ (known simply and hip-ly enuff at the time, 1970, as “The Raiders”) “Gone Movin’ On”, a rarely heard, transitional (from their older garage-y style, to something slightly more “70’s” in ‘tude and production) single. It should still be available on a fairly comprehensive comp entitled “The Legend of Paul Revere”.
Buy “Gone Movin’ On”
