Winter 2013 Snappy Mix

Comments Off

The Seasonal Mix Series is an inquiry in song about where we stand as the weather changes and the calendar pages leaf by.

Rain falls. Wind blows. A chill creeps into the bones. Thoughts sputter and spark by the fire’s glow. Winter is upon us, ending and beginnings, birth and death dancing in the snow.

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 VI

Comments Off

Wake up, sleepy heads. It’s time to shave your face, comb your hair and stumble down the stairs. It’s not so bad, really, especially when you have this gentle but invigorating soundtrack to help your feet shuffle off the clinging Saturday night malaise. Wipe the sleep particles from your eyes. The Sandman has gone to bed and we’re happy to see you.

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.
