It’s the end of the month, which means that it’s time once again for our KRCC DJ music picks of the month (you can see last month’s picks HERE).

As you’ll notice, there’s a link beneath each song that will allow you to purchase it from iTunes. If you click and buy from that link, KRCC gets a portion of the proceeds. Win-Win. Thanks!

Jeanette Hohman (Surround Sounds, Thursdays from 10 p.m. to Midnight):

pattersonhoodMy favorite for June is “Screwtopia” from Murdering Oscar (and other Love Songs) by Patterson Hood. After the success of the Drive-By Truckers, Hood has returned to an album he started 15 years earlier. It’s full turmoil, great guitar riffs, pedal steel, fiddle and piano. I couldn’t love it more! Patterson Hood - Murdering Oscar (And Other Love Songs) - Screwtopia

Mothy (Suddenly the Sidewalk, Friday from 9 p.m. to Midnight):

crocodilesJune pick would have to be “Flash of Light” by the band Crocodiles from their new Fat Possum release, “Summer of Hate.” Even if you pulled the teeth from Crocodiles, they would STILL chew your ass up and spit you out. Serious, DEADLY serious head music for head people. If you can’t dig this, you ain’t got no shovel. Crocodiles - Summer of Hate (Bonus Track Version) - Flash of Light

Jeff Bieri (Blue Plate Special and Afternoon Music Mix):

naomishelton

“What Is This” by Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens. Motown gospel funk with a conscience asking important questions that need to be answered by THE MAN. Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens - What Have You Done, My Brother? - What Is This

Steve Harris (Grass Roots Revival, Wednesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):

toddsnider

Todd Snider, “America’s Favorite Pastime” from The Excitement Plan on Yep Roc Records. Neo-folkie Todd Snider presents the heartwarming story of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Dock Ellis, who claimed to have pitched a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres in 1970 under the influence of LSD. Todd Snider - The Excitement Plan - America's Favorite Pastime

Your Friend and Neighbor Vicky (Morning Music Mix):

vivavoceFavorite song for June is: “Tornado Alley” by Viva Voce on Rose City (on Barsuk Records). Indie pop/rock gem. Summer’s here and the time is right. Viva Voce - Rose City - Tornado Alley

coryweeds

My favorite new jazz album for June is Cory Weeds’ “Everything is Coming Up Weeds.” This is straight ahead jazz at its best. Cory is a tenor sax player; he is accompanied on this album by pianist (and organist) Ross Taggart, trumpeter Jim Rotondi, bassist John Webber, and drummer Willie Jones III. Cory is the owner of The Cellar Jazz Club, an internationally known jazz club in Vancouver, B.C. He also does a DJ stint on Mondays at a radio station in Vancouver. I guess you could say he is really into jazz. The Cory Weeds Quintet - Everything's Coming Up Weeds

Nick: The Oscillation Propagation, Saturdays from 10 p.m to Midnight

marcantonaMarc Antona, “Red Faces.” This energetic, hypnotic beat salad will swallow you whole into a relentless, irresistible groove. Marc Antona - Red Faces - Red Faces

Eric Cole (In The Groove, Tuesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):

willbernard“Baby Goats” from Will Bernard’s latest release called “Blue Plate Special”. Will Bernard is one of the most underappreciated guitarists on the scene today. Will Bernard - Blue Plate Special - Baby Goats

 

2 Responses to What Our DJs Heart: Music Picks for June 2009

  1. Marty says:

    Something off the new Todd Snider, Steve already picked a good one, but I’m going for “Money Compliments Publicity (song #10)”. It mostly rhymes and if Todd ever gets the titular items he promises to take care of all his friends: “I’ll buy an island run a phone line call ’em and tell ’em all to get fucked that oughta take care of them.” Preach it Todd!
