I'm pretty honored and stoked that @sgcommunityradio kindly invited me along and let me and my buddy @kkkidggg mess about and played some records. Don't be expecting some wicked pounding Boiler Room stuff cos turntablist I am not. Instead it's an eclectic mix of old and new and hopefully you'll find something interesting in my selections. For those in the northern hemisphere, you can tune in for your morning coffee or afternoon tea time music. 😁😁😁

Airiel - Molten Young Lovers: Their 2nd full length released in 2017 by Shelflife Records, 2xLP pressed on white w/black & blue splatter. Brilliant album, an atmospheric post rock/shoegaze masterpiece! This was a late addition to my favorite shoegaze releases of 2017 list and it shot up the ranks real quick.
Rocket From The Crypt - Group Sounds: Their 6th LP originally released in 2001 by Vagrant Records, this is the 2016 Vagrant 20 reissue pressed on clear w/black & yellow splatter. An excellent record from one of "Swami" John Reis's many amazing bands (Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, etc). Killer experimental punk rock with horns!
R.E.M. - Green (1988) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Where has the time gone? This album will be turning 30 years old this year. Although I had heard R.E.M. albums before this, this was the first I bought in 1988 when it was released. Having fallen for the beauty of Life's Rich Pageant, I was excited about this release. It was the band's major label debut on Warner making then one of the most significant crossover artists of their era. From college radio favourites, this would be where they made their big leap to the big time. To be honest, this isn't my favourite album of theirs. Aside from the singles such as Stand with all its poppish pretensions, the album was average compared to what they were capable of and what was to come next. However there is one but of trivia that has captivated me about this album more than the music and it involves the cover design. From Wikipedia - "The original pressings of the album and cassette tape covers had the number 4 spot varnished over the R in both "Green" and "R.E.M." In return, "R. Stand" appears instead of "4. Stand" on the track list on the back cover. Allegedly, this was a product of an early typing mistake: due to "4" being a number very close to "R" on the keyboard, "Green" was once misspelled "G4een", and the mistake was adopted this way." The effort put into executing this concept for me showed the band's commitment to the art of their music. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #rem#green#ihaveathingforvinyl
Dasher - Sodium: Their 2nd full length (1st on a label) released in 2017 by Jagjaguwar pressed on magenta vinyl. Kickass record! A ridiculously intense noise rock/post punk barnburner. Drummer/vocalist/band mastermind Kylee Kimbrough is an absolute powerhouse!
Cende - #1 Hit Single: Their debut LP released in 2017 by Double Double Whammy Records pressed on aqua blue vinyl. Rad lo-fi indie jams featuring Greg Rutkin of LVL UP! Sadly this is also their final LP as they've already broken up haha. I'm cool with that if we get a new LVL UP record this year though!
Hiccup - Imaginary Enemies: Their debut LP released in 2017 by Father/Daughter Records pressed on transparent "piss yellow" (their words not mine hah). This record rules and there's no where near enough people talking about it! Killer indie punk/power pop trio featuring members of The Chris Gethard Show house band, The LLC. Pure fuzzed out n' catchy fun!
The Anniversary - Designing A Nervous Breakdown: Their debut LP originally released in 2000 by Vagrant Records/Heroes & Villians Records, this is the 2016 Vagrant 20 reissue pressed on red. Such a great debut! Another classic from the early 2000's, upbeat synthy emo glory. I still get so amped when I hear "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" kick into gear!
Hot Rod Circuit - Sorry About Tomorrow: Their 3rd LP originally released in 2002 by Vagrant Records, this is the 2017 Vagrant 20 reissue pressed on pink marble. Classic early 2000's emo, this was a staple for me back in high school. It's held up really well too, still damn good!
Yo - this might be the last one for the night!
164. “The Iceberg,” Oddisee - The social commentary on the new Oddisee album made it one of my favorite hip hop records this year — the dude is so smart and so talented.
163. “Material Control,” Glassjaw - The world did not know it was going to get a new Glassjaw record and I’m not sure the world was completely ready. I wasn’t and I’m still ingesting this beast of an album. but it’s damn good.
162. “The Animal Spirits,” James Holden - Noisy—yet, relaxing— jazz that is perfect for entertaining company or trying to pretentiously feature music in the background of your office while you work (not from experience).
161. “Fresh Air,” Homeshake - One of the chillest albums I listened to this year—a little repetitive at times, but very promising for the chillwave movement sweeping dorm rooms across the country.
160. “Forever,” Code Orange - I fully admit I didn’t like this album at first and almost kept it off here completely but I went back and really engaged with the brutality and industrial direction of Code Orange and felt it deserved a spot!
159. “Survival Pop,” Worriers - Folk punk is my jam these days and goddamn, Lauren Denitzio writes great folk punk. Alongside Mikey Erg, this band is gonna be unstoppable.
158. “Rabbit in the Snare,” The Lulls in Traffic - On the paper, this should be in my top 10 cuz I love Copeland and Aaron Marsh; yet, the hip hop collab over chillstep project was perfected by Sisyphus. While great, I felt it could’ve been more than Copeland with rap.
157. “Epic Beast,” Iron and Wine - I’m thankful when artists go back to their roots and rediscover themselves. That’s exactly what you’ll find from Sam Beam’s latest folk-Americana release.
156. “Clairvoyant,” The Contortionist - I have been conflicted about the Contortionist’s last two albums — not a whole lot happens in them in terms of chaos or calamity (like in the earlier albums) but the technical prog transition is so well-expected that I can’t resist it.
The Get Up Kids - Eudora: Another awesome compilation! Originally released in 2001 by Vagrant Records/Heroes & Villians Records, this is the 2016 Vagrant 20 reissue, 2xLP pressed on mint green marble. A huge collection of b-sides, rarities, and killer covers. This was actually the first TGUK CD I bought back in high school after being told I had to check 'em out hah, soooo good!

OH THERE ARE MORE I TELL YA!
173. “ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$,” Joey Bada$$ - Joey was one of the most outspoken rappers against Donald Trump in 2017 — while may mainstream acts held back, Joey went the fuck in—esp. with a bullethole-ridden American flag.
172. “Nightbringers,” Black Dahlia Murder - I mean, as always, Black Dahlia Murder bring the unbridled brutality.
171. “Toy,” A Giant Dog - Such a fun, extravagant rock album — jams from beginning to end.
170. “Italian Ghosts,” Strawberry Girls - Do you like your instrumental chillstep prog metal with occasional collabs? Do you like lounging the fuck out to groovy licks? Then listen to this shit!
169. “If I Never Speak Again,” Hearts like Lions - Tooth and Nail released a good album again! For real, I really dig the hell out of this album this year and tried to share it around as much as I could.
168. “Red, Green, or Inbetween,” WSTR - It was the first pop punk album I heard this year, wasn’t the best one, but I kept coming back to it cuz it has lots of bangers.
167. “Beyond the Realm of Light,” Summoner - If melodic post metal is your thing with a hint of psych, then dig into this Summoner record!
166. “Body Language,” Junior Astronomers - I’ve waited many years for a new album from Junior Astronomers and this one did not disappoint! Loud, ferocious, and fun jams for fans of All Get Out and The Colour Revolt.
165. “The Demonstration,” Drab Majesty - Goth post punk is fucking alive and well in this album. Whenever I needed to feel a little weird, I put this on and embraced my inner goth kid.
