Music Monday: Mike Patton, Ultravox and The Fall

Mike Patton: Mondo Cane
Ultravox: Vienna
The Fall: 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong

We have more selections from music minister Rob Levy here: kicking off with Needcoffee favorite, Mike Patton. A commenter on the Youtube video you’re about to see asks if there’s anything the man can’t do. And we’re not sure there is an answer to that. He’s sort of ludicrously busy. We open up with a selection from his latest album, Mondo Cane, and a live performance of “Deep Down.”

The Sound Board #6: The Record Store in its Natural Habitat

DJ Shadow: Entroducing

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions and is co-hosted by Rob Levy, Tuffley and myself. Let us know what you think.

This episode’s central topic is the record store. Record Store Day is one thing, but what do we do with the other 364 days of the year? Do independent stores still serve a purpose in a world of Amazon and the iTunes store? And where do big box stores fit in with this mess?

Other topics include Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Snoop Dogg vs. Willie Nelson (we wish), other festival nonsense, M.I.A. vs. Lady Gaga, Elton John vs. The Mayans, Rage Against the Machine in the UK, Amanda Palmer unchained, OKGo slight return, The Vatican forgives The Beatles, The Runaways and remembering Malcolm McLaren.

Win Grandpa Elliott’s Sugar Sweet on CD!

Grandpa Elliott: Sugar Sweet CD

You might be thinking to yourself: where have I heard of/seen Grandpa Elliott before? If you were recalling when we featured Playing for Change, the docu about buskers performing worldwide and mashed up together into glorious performance pieces, you get five points. This is his solo album, Sugar Sweet.

Here–this isn’t on the album, but it’s a nice little sample of what Grandpa can do:
