  1. Heatmiser - Mic City Sons

    Bill and Brian dive into Heatmiser, a band that might be familiar to some as "Elliott Smith’s band," and their final album Mic City Sons (1996, Caroline). Bill and Brian discuss picking this album up from the Princeton Record Exchange used section, Elliott Smith’s value as a band member, co-songwriter Neil Gust going song for song in quality alongside Elliott, Tony Lash’s contributions to the Pacific Northwest sound as a producer, Sam Coomes subtle arrangements on bass and keys, beets, and more as we make our way through the album track by track!

  2. Take Me On: The Art Of The Cover Song - 1A

    What makes a great cover song?

    Is it a total reimagining, like Devo singing “Satisfaction,” Ike and Tina Turner taking on “Proud Mary” or Jimi Hendrix playing “All Along The Watchtower?”

    Is it a performance that brings a new energy or feeling to the original, like Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Got To Get You Into My Life” or Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah?”

    Or can a covering artist bring a weight to a song that makes it feel all their own, like Johnny Cash singing “Hurt?”

    The answer is yes.

    While taking on another artist’s hit can seem like an easy way to please fans, it can also be a risk. Covering a song invites a comparison to the original. When done right, it’s a beautiful tribute that can become a hit all its own. When done wrong, it can be the pop equivalent of dancing on a grave.

    Turn up your headphones and get ready for a music-filled examination of the art and craft of the cover.

  3. R.E.M. | Out Of Athens

    By the early nineties R.E.M. found themselves one of the biggest bands on the planet. What they had achieved was beyond their wildest dreams but it had taken them over a decade to get there. This RTÉ Radio One music documentary recorded in Athens, Georgia and North Carolina in the US by Ken Sweeney takes the listener on that journey with R.E.M. out of Athens (Georgia). Without slick videos for the new MTV, or support from mainstream radio, R.E.M. built their following playing an alternative circuit of gigs across America as evangelists for this new music. R.E.M. blazed a trail for every independent band to follow from Nirvana to Pearl Jam.

  9. In Sight Out: Thurston Moore

    In this interview Thurston Moore, founding member of Sonic Youth and in icon of counterculture, sits down with Pitchfork’s Jenn Pelly to discuss poetry, printed matter, and how it fits alongside his music. In Sight Out is presented by MailChimp. Check out previous episodes: http://pitchfork.com/features/podcast/ —- Thurston Moore is a founding member of Sonic Youth and an icon of counterculture. Formed in 1981, and currently on hiatus, Sonic Youth were quintessential "downtown New Yorkers," drawing on noise, no wave, and hardcore punk to shape ideas of alternative, indie, and art rock in the underground and beyond. Their influence remains immeasurable. Moore has released many solo albums, most recently this year’s excellent Rock N Roll Consciousness. His wide-ranging collaborations include Yoko Ono, John Zorn, and Merzbow. Moore publishes poetry and music books through his Ecstatic Peace Library and in 2015, he released Stereo Sanctity, a collection of his lyrics and poems.
