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.

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 IX

Comments Off

Open up the windows and let the cool air in. Press play, softly at first and then inching up the volume bit by bit as the music takes you and sets your feet to shuffling. It’s gonna be a beautiful weekend despite all the flotsam and jetsam beating against our hulls. The water is wide but we will cross over. Believe that.

Classic Rock Orgy VI

1 Reply

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…G

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 “G” assortment includes double shots from two underdogs that deserve your thorough investigation (Thea Gilmore and Goose Creek Symphony) along with classics from Grand Funk Railroad and the Grateful Dead swimming with fresh sweet meat from Great American Taxi and Ghosts of Jupiter. This one’s got a bit of swing to it, so don’t resist if you get the urge to shuffle in your stocking feet, kids.

Listen to this mix HERE (8tracks embeds still not working properly. Sigh). Track listing below.

You’ve stomached about as much of the boss man’s bull for one week as a human can and it’s time to get lit. Press play, pour yourself a taste and let’s get a good glow on.

Kick off your shoes. Let your toes find the floorboards as you shake off the weight you’ve been carrying around. Press play. Shuffle around maybe even twirl once or twice. No one is watching. It’ll do you good.
