Classic Rock Orgy – Double Shots Edition II

Comments Off

Our fantastic voyage of twin tuneage continues with a stable of artists especially poorly served by commercial classic rock programmers including fab songs from The Rolling Stones, KISS and Fleetwood Mac you will likely never hear on the radio. Seriously, if “A Whiter Shade of Pale” is all you’re familiar with in the Procol Harum catalog then you’ve got treasures galore awaiting you on under-served masterpieces like A Salty Dog, Shine On Brightly and many more albums from one of the smartest, darkest bands to emerge from the 60s British Rock explosion. Trust ol’ DI on this one. We wouldn’t steer you wrong unless you asked us to…

Stoned Mixology – Spectral Things

Comments Off

Music put together under the influence for the edification and amusement of those both under the influence and otherwise…

Ghosts and memories, dreams and fears, none have tangible substance but nothing consumes our thoughts more, particularly when we dull the world’s clatter and sit alone with our thoughts. Instead of chasing them away, let’s invite them in for a smoke and a hang.

Sunday Brunch VII

Comments Off

Waking from a dream, we find the world as we left it, a muddle of bills, plans and missteps. The panic patter begins in our chest and our still drowsy brain sloshes to attention. Take a breath, push this rising stress aside. Know you are doing just fine. Someone and perhaps more someones than you realize think you are beautiful and cool and lots of other good things. Let that take the place of the panic. See if you can make this Sunday bright for you and don’t be surprised if your residual glow doesn’t make others shine a bit too.

Classic Rock Orgy VI

From time to time DI feels the need to pimp slap the lazy programming of commercial classic rock radio by using the same artist pool but carefully avoiding the same predictable tracks. Sure, we throw in a few obscure treats – once a record store clerk always a record store clerk – but this is exactly what the FM pioneers did back in the day, doing the legwork to bring the coolest sounds to the people.

This installment doesn’t spare the Rod with double shots from The Faces and Stewart’s 70s heyday. There’s a couple artists that should be staples on the format but aren’t (Goose Creek Symphony, The Flamin’ Groovies), a super bad Neil Young cover, Ted Nugent before he went nuts (with young Meatloaf singing!), a stealth reading of “Amazing Grace,” and even a Journey power ballad. Now, to borrow a line from the saucy James Taylor nugget here, it’s time to whisper sweet nothings in your filthy ears until you’re satisfied.

Brought To You By The Letter…F

Comments Off

The Impound has been organizing its music archives, and we hit upon the idea of sharing tunes we dig in an alphabetical way. So, for the next few months we’ll be working our way from A-Z with a choice baker’s dozen or so installment each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.

Our “F” assortment includes DI staples Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac and Fairport Convention alongside some artists that deserve bigger audiences and critical recognition (The Features, Johnny Flynn and Liam Finn) as well as a monster track from one of our fave-o-rite cult U.K. acts (“Good News Bad News”) named Family. If just one listener decides to explore the Family catalog because of this mix we feel we’re doing God’s work here at the Impound (and you might well start with the killer 2 CD compilation In Their Own Time if you feel so inclined). Now, we’ll shut the “F” up and get rolling…

Uh, we were going to show you a nice picture of Furry Friends with a Fabulous Letter “F” but the Sesame Street gang is still pissed about Romney saying he’s pulling their funding. Looks like it’s gonna be a street fight with the GOP!

Sunday Brunch IV

Melancholy goes down well in the morning. It’s a great time to think over what might have been and what will be while sipping a hot beverage and watching the weather unfold. With that in mind, DI’s consciously gentle morning soundtrack for February digs deep into the treasure trove of bittersweeties out there, particularly in the 1970s when they knew how to get their introspection on proper.

Poundings LXXI

Indulging a classic rock jones this week with an assemblage designed to make you feel like you’re tooling down a sunlit highway in an American muscle car, a warm hand on your thigh with comely good times grinning at you from the passenger seat. But first, a dirty blues rumble from our favorite Johnny Otis obscurity…
