Episode 31 – Unexcused Visions of the Southern States
Dave is an old friend from college who was gracious enough to guest DJ for episode 31. Dave hails from Atlanta, GA and DJ’s regularly around the city with his comrade in music, Drew, as DC² = DJs. Both are on a hell bent mission to keep the ATL listenable, and they’re doing a damn fine job of it. Below you’ll find the set list along with some brief explanations on Dave’s song choices. If you like what you hear (and you will) be sure to become a fan of DC² = DJs on Facebook, and be sure to give Dave a shout-out.
Two recent favorites, no the best coast song is NOT a Nirvana cover…
While I no longer listen to Soul Asylum, I saw Lulu perform this song with them on MTV unplugged back in middle school and I’ve loved it ever since…even after I dreamt of young Dave Pirner strangling me with his nasty dreadlocks.
5. Sly & The Family Stone – If You Want Me To Stay (Fresh – 1973)
The obligatory influential afro-funk track as if to say “I like more than white kids with guitars.” Who doesn’t see through that these days? Come on…lets not fool ourselves any longer.
6. The French Kicks – Atlanta (Swimming – 2008)
A shoutout to mah home! I realize most of you are located in the northeast…come visit me…I’ll take you for Barbecue!
7. Broken Social Scene – Canada vs. America (EP To Be You and Me – 2005)
8. J Roddy Walston & The Business – Used To Did (Hail Mega Boys – 2007)
Do you STILL like Kings of Leon? I never did… If KOL could write a half decent song, maybe they’d sound like these guys.
As much as I love Nebraska, I love the full E Street Band version of this song that they do in concert…plus I love it when he does a “1,2,3,4” mid song.
11. Sebadoh – Magnet’s Coil (Bakesale – 1994)
I once helped Lou Barlow shop for a discman. He’s not quite the prick people say he is.
12. Wilco – A Magazine Called Sunset (More Like the Moon EP – 2003)
Pre YHF, Derek got me really into Summerteeth…bastard…do you know how much $$$ I’ve unloaded on this band since???
I remember when I first got into this band, I found their first EP in our old CD library atWONY and a promoter told me to listen to this song on headphones…what a difference it makes…turned me into the obsessive Spoon fan I am today.
16) The Radio Dept. – David (David EP – 2009)
