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):
My 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!
Mothy (Suddenly the Sidewalk, Friday from 9 p.m. to Midnight):
June 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.
Jeff Bieri (Blue Plate Special and Afternoon Music Mix):
Steve Harris (Grass Roots Revival, Wednesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):
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.
Your Friend and Neighbor Vicky (Morning Music Mix):
Tino: (Saturday/Sunday overnight)
Dick Fairley: Thursday Night Jazz Excursion, 8 to 10 p.m.
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.
Nick: The Oscillation Propagation, Saturdays from 10 p.m to Midnight
Eric Cole (In The Groove, Tuesdays from 8 to 10 p.m.):
