After a short hibernation, I’m back to posting semi-regular podcasts. The following is a collection of music unearthed during the quiet interim and more recent additions. Also, a little bookend tribute to the late Dave Cloud – who’s music I was not personally familiar with but certainly feel like diving in now full force.
- Dave Cloud & The Gospel of Power – Guy de Maupassant
- JEFF the Brotherhood – What’s a Creep
- Angela Talley – Grave World
- Sugar Sk*_*lls – Solresol
- Sherbert – Rachel Knows
- Richie – Go Back Home
- Hands Down Eugene – Eva
- Norm – Remember
- All Them Witches – When God Comes Back (Live)
- Dave Cloud & The Gospel of Power – Fever

It’s back! After uploading 63 previous episodes I felt inspired to make another installation. I mean, who ends on 63 iterations of something? It’s insanity. I wouldn’t call this a “Best Of” but it certain culls many of my favorites from the huge gap between episodes. Whatever it is, it’s 40 minutes of enjoyable Nashville music.

Another quality dispatch (if I may say so myself) from the bottomless well of goodness that is the Nashville rock / electronic / indie scene. There’s probably a better name for that but it’s all I’ve got at the moment. Enjoy.

Now in our sixty first volume, is it safe to say that Nashville can be known for well more than just Music Row Country Crap? As you can hear, we’re chock full of quality indie, rock, garage, post-rock, absurdity and Quality Country. Just listen, you’ll get it.

Let’s get two things out of the way. First, I realize it’s late into January 2013 and, thus, a compilation regarding music from 2012 seems a bit behind schedule. This is undebatable. Secondly, it’s dishonest, disingenuous and distasteful to call this a ‘Best Of’ as I have in years past. There’s just far too much music coming out of our fair region to be able to put an entire year’s worth of it into a single, listenable, stream. With that in mind, we’re calling this a ‘2012 Retrospective’ – there’s some serious oversights and questionable choices but it represents a portion of the last year. That’s all we’re going for here.
Excuses and preambles aside, I think it’s a fine hour and a half listen. My apologies to all the bands that were left out (JEFF, Reid Magette, Richie, Turbo Fruits, Wild Cub, Umbrella Tree, Ultras S/C, get better, Anchor Thieves, Calicocat, Century Club, Chancellor Warhol, Cherub, Conestyle, Mom&Dad, Shaky Voices, Tower Defense, etc. etc.) but I think you’ll find those that were included to be a fair representation of the diversity of Nashville.
2013 and beyond is only going to get crazier in terms of amount of content. This is a great problem to have.

What’s that? Another edition of the podcast in less than a week? Well, I couldn’t rightly leave up a Christmas themed edition past Christmas, could I? Plus, there were a few more gems released in December that needed to be put into the WOTT pipeline, proper. New music never stops I suppose!
Enjoy the final 2012 edition of the podcast.

After immersing myself in that Partytown Hospital record I decided to browse around Bandcamp and find some other eclectic Nashville Christmas music. In doing so, I unearthed the best Christmas present I could possibly bestow to the Nashville music scene – David Argyle Thacker’s The Mouth Trumpet Christmas Album. It is exactly what you’d think it is and it delivers big time.
From there, I decided I might as well just throw together a Christmas themed edition of the podcast because, why not? So, with that in mind, dive into this Merry Christmas compilation! I’ve actually got more Christmas related items to share so come back later if this doesn’t satisfy you.

A solid thirty minutes of some of the latest and greatest from our fine city. This edition of the podcast certainly seems to lean more on the electronic based side of things but there’s plenty of rock and a dash of country in there for ya too.
