Poundings XCIX

”You’re locked on the clock/ You’re ready to blow/ And nobody knows.”

Blue collar rock ‘n’ roll for hard working Americans. Keep faith, there’s some respite and peace at the end of our toils, if only a freshly rolled number and a song or two to make us smile.

Snack Time V

Comments Off

When we were young, radio was a blessing, something one turned on to find a smile, a comforting shoulder, or just a nifty tune that made the world shine a bit brighter for a few minutes. Those days – very sadly – are largely past with the commercial radio programming of today, but we at Dirty Impound like to conjecture what a better radio world might sound like. Our fifth installment in this daydream offers Beatles covers, Richard Thompson tackling a Squeeze hit, fresh new talent right at the top, and more with ample nods to the 70s AM radio magnificence of our youth.

Echoes From Sunset Canyon II

1 Reply

Further dispatches from a West Coast place that doesn’t exist but feels real anyway – the anthems of an invisible city where the sunsets are gorgeous, melancholy is strong, and golden brown beauties make one ache in ways one never imagined possible. The road and the spaces between us move within this mix, reminding us of a Robert Bly verse where one “eats distance and silence” before one “grows long wings, enters the spiral, and ascends.” But, even if one soars alone at least they’ve taken to the sky…

The third installment in our series of mixes focused on songs about being in a band, the recording industry, and the ins & outs of the life of a rocker is super sized for yo’ pleasure. Now, the crowd without a face begins to fill the space in the arena…

Poundings LXXVI

Comments Off

Desire and destiny are this week’s undertows – sometimes strong, sometimes weak, but always pulling at us as we try to figure out our place in the scheme of things. We begin with a few Southern Rock corkers before wailing a bit and finally wondering aloud about where the road we’re on is headed. We begin with one of the only bands to successfully utilize a three guitar attack with genuine eloquence.

Classic Rock Orgy IV

Comments Off

We’re taking a break from our current trawl through the “Box of Intrigue” to envelop y’all in the vinyl-rich sounds of the 60s & 70s. As with previous Classic Rock Orgy mixes, we’ve gathered names you know but songs you probably don’t. It’s a sad fact that most of these artists are represented by a dozen or so overly familiar tunes in the general consciousness, and the Impound aims to rectify that shortcoming with these periodic assortments.

This time out we offer up a double shot of The Monkees and choice covers of Dylan (by Small Faces), Bad Company (by Golden Smog) and Joni Mitchell (by Jennifer Warnes). Ladies, slip into your macrame bikini and lather up with some coconut oil while we slap on some Aqua Velva and comb our chest hair. It’s time to make those refrigerator sized Klimpt speakers boogie…
