playlist 2.25.12- garage rock revival


This week’s show was inspired by grimy, fuzz-drenched garage-rock… best appreciated while accompanied by Jameson, full-blown speakers, last call. San Francisco artists like Ty Segall, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Thee Oh Sees (pictured above) bring modern interpretations to the classic Stooges-esque sound, drawing from psychedelic, punk, glam, blues. Naturally, the end of Saturday’s playlist veered into comfortable dream-pop territory (including new music from Mazzy Star)… I can’t keep up the scuzzy high energy for that long!

DR DOG that old black hole- be the void

 “I put on my clothes like a bodyguard, I put the dogs on patrol in my own backyard…I’ve got my eyes on the prize but it looks just like a mystery, and it all goes by on the lonesome trail to victory.” Sometimes feel like that hamster fruitlessly spinning… NICE METAPHOR, Docta Dawg!
