What The Cool Kids Are Listening To: Indie Rock Playlist June 2019



Albert Hammond, Jr. "More To Life" The Strokes' guitarist continues his stellar solo career. Check it out.

Bad Books III - Side project of Manchester Orchestra & Kevin Devine. Good stuff.



Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue (14-Disc Box Set and documentary by Martin Scorsese on Netflix) feat Mick Ronson on guitar, Allen Ginsberg, Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn, Steven Soles, et al. Amazing, but probably best loved by serious Dylan fans only.



Calexico & Iron & Wine Years To Burn. Nice collaboration from two Americana stalwarts.



Elton John: Get ready to see the Elton biopic by listening to some of the great songs from his first five albums such as: "Madman Across The Water" (alt version feat Mick Ronson), "Levon", "Tiny Dancer", "Country Comfort", and "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters".


Filthy Friends Emerald Valley. Filthy Friends is Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker's other band, with R.E.M.'s Peter Buck. Corin is great here, but speaking of Sleater-Kinney, they have a new single, "Hurry On Home", from a new forthcoming album produced by St. Vincent...



UPDATE: They just dropped a second song from the new Sleater-Kinney album "The Future Is Here" 




Prince Originals. Prince's demos of songs he wrote for artists such as The Bangles and Sinead O'Connor

Band of Skulls Love Is All You Love

Better Oblivion Community Center (feat Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers) "Little

Bob Dylan Blood On The Tracks (New York Test Pressing). We thought we had heard it all but now there's this - a New York test pressing that was released, then redrawn and redone with new amateur musicians from Minnesota (the standard version we know and have long loved). Interesting for hard-core Dylan fans.

Jeff Tweedy Warmer - Nice companion album to last year's Warm

King Gizzard Fishing For Fishies. - Cool psychedelic sounds from Down Under...

Mavis Staples We Get By - After very successful two albums with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Mavis offers Ben Harper a chance to write, produce, and perform with her, which he does admirably.

Modest Mouse "I'm Still Here". - Cool single from the forthcoming album we look forward to.

Cool, New Songs by Stephen Malkmus & Bonnie "Prince" Billy Speculate on America in 2024 for NYT Magazine T Culture Issue



The New York Times Magazine asked four musicians, including Stephen Malkmus (who contributed the wild "Airplane Air") & Bonnie "Prince" Billy (whose "Where My Heart's Scared To Be" is a delight) to write songs about life in America in 2024 for their new T Culture issue.

Marvin Gaye Is Back! On A U.S. Postage Stamp And With A GREAT "New" Lost Album From 1972 We've Never Heard Before: "You're The Man"; The Follow-Up To "What's Going On"


The official U.S. Postal Service Marvin Gaye stamp is now available.

So nice to have Marvin around again!

Also loving his "new" lost album from 1972, You're The Man; the intended follow-up to What's Going On that no one's heard until now. Pitchfork gave it a 7.8 (out of 10). It's a fantastic addition to the canon. 





Cool, New Song by Titus Andronicus: "(I Blame) Society" (Video)



Love this band! Their new video reminded me of this classic...


Strong Wind Dried My Tears: 21st Century Women Who Rock (Indie Music Playlist)


So many notable female artists of late, both solo and in collaboration with others, creating some of the most powerful timely music we've ever heard. Here's just a few:

Billie Eilish When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?




Phoebe Bridgers Stranger In The Alps solo debut, collaborations: boygenius (with Julien Baker & Lucy Dacus) and Better Oblivion Community Center (with Conor Oberst)



Filthy Friends (feat Corin Tucker of Sleater-Kinney). Emerald Valley is a solid second album from this collaboration between Corin & R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck. By the way, there's a new Sleater-Kinney album produced by St. Vincent forthcoming)

Jenny Lewis On The Line

The C.I.A. (feat Denee Segall on vocals with husband Ty Segall & Emmett Kelly, both on bass)

Karen O & Danger Mouse Lux Prima

Stella Donnelly Beware Of Dogs

Ex Hex (feat Mary Timony) It's Real

Y La Bamba Mujeres

Susanna Garden Of Earthly Delights

Sharon Van Etten Remind Me Tomorrow

Marianne Faithful Negative Capability

Courtney Barnett Tell Me How You Really Feel (LP), "Everybody Here Hates You" (single)

PJ Harvey All About Eve (Original Music for the Film)

Priests The Seduction of Kansas


Sara Bareilles Amidst The Chaos

Mavis Staples If All I Was Was Black is the second album from the singing civil rights legend which is essentially a collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy who produces, writes, plays guitar, and even sings a little. The notion of a middle-aged white dude putting words in a Black woman's mouth (especially on a personal song such as "If All I Was Was Black") requires a great deal of sensitivity and the possibilities were high for a total embarrassment. To his credit, Tweedy pulls it off, not stepping on any toes, allowing Mavis the space she needs. Mavis seems to be enjoyable a revival of sorts recently and no one deserves it more. Worth checking out is Mavis' powerful cameo on Hozier's  "Nina Cried Power"



Hall of Fame: Fanny, Aretha Franklin, Patti Smith, Aimee Mann, Memphis Minnie, Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Odetta, Laura Nyro, Barbara Dane

Son Volt Union feat "Reality Winner". Americana icon Jay Farrar (many of his old Uncle Tupelo bandmates went on to form Wilco) returns to form with a partisan political album "ripped from the headlines" yet speaking to the same deeper truths as Woody Guthrie and Joe Hill (a Farrar "collaborator" on "Rebel Girl" here - Farrar put new music to lyrics written by the activist who was murdered by The State in 1915).



Spiral Stairs We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized. The *other* guitar genius from Pavement releases an eclectic new blend of sounds. A good solid album from Scott Kannberg AKA Spiral Stairs

Six years in the Air Force

On this election interference

For this job with the NSA
The intel was there, just couldn't look away

What have you done, Reality Winner?
Reality Winner, what have you done?
What have you done, Reality Winner?
Reality Winner, what have you done?


This jail is a stone-cold answer
The biggest mistake of a Texas lifetime
In this ballad of the commander-in-chief
Is there any mercy for this standing belief?

Felt like gaslighting, not something to just accept
Proud to serve, just not this President
Those that seek the truth will find the answers

Cool, Free Download of Tribute to Scott Hutchinson (Frightened Rabbit) feat Julien Baker, Craig Finn, Aaron Dessner, Ben Gibbard, Kevin Devine




The late Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit last December 5 was honored at a New York City tribute concert by friends such as The Hold Steady's Craig Finn, Boygenius' Julien Baker, The National's Aaron Dessner, and Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie/The Postal Service).

Here is a statement from the surviving members of Frightened Rabbit:
This night was not a night of mourning or a night of sadness but a celebration of an extremely special person and the music [Scott Hutchison] created. Scott inspired everyone who met him, heard his lyrics or saw his art. We feel his loss every day but we are all in this together and we carry on strengthened by the support of the people involved in this recording and those around the world who have been affected by Scott‘s passing.
A huge thank you goes out to Ben Gibbard, Craig Finn, Aaron Dessner, Julien Baker and Kevin Devine for their support, love and kindness in being involved. We want to encourage people who listen to this to laugh, cry, hug and sing in your worst Scottish accent at the top of your lungs and keep the spirit of Scott alive in all our hearts and all our voices. While we’re alive let’s all make tiny changes to Earth.

Arthur Brown Reclaims His Psychedelic Classic "Fire" (1968) From The New Zealand Shooter



In the middle of last week's murderous madness in New Zealand, eagle-eyed producer and rock historian Martin Lewis noticed the mosque shooter had chosen The Crazy World of Arthur Brown's 1968 British psychedelic classic "Fire" - which begins with the dramatic spoken declaration "I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE!!!" - as the apparent theme song of his Facebook live-streamed killing spree. 

Martin Lewis contacted the now 77 year-old Brown who was in Austin for SXSW.



Arthur was horrified and had this to say:


“As co-writer and performer of the song ‘Fire’, and creator of ‘The God of Hellfire’ persona, I would like to express my horror and sadness in the use of ‘Fire’, in an act of terror in New Zealand. My heart goes out to all the victims and families of victims of this atrocity – and to all the communities affected. I should like to say that I support no group or individual that uses terrorist tactics and killing as a means of dealing with other beliefs than their own.
I believe that all religions reach for the same root in the human being. I believe all people of all colours and all races deserve equal respect. I also believe that all people have a duty of care towards each other and all creatures on this earth.” 

Martin Lewis, who produced The Secret Policeman's Ball (1979) concert & film (feat Billy Connolly, members of Monty Python, Pete Townshend, and Tom Robinson) for Amnesty International, added: 


“I think Arthur did remarkably well. He is a truly creative man. He defines that phrase ‘ahead-of-his-time’.  He never reaped the full rewards of being a pioneer of that style of music. That success fell to other artists.  But we must recall that it’s 50 years since he was at the center of the media vortex. To suddenly have your famous creation usurped and traduced into an anthem for a massacre by a vicious white supremacist was just paralyzing to Arthur. It took him time to process and respond. I give Arthur major props for navigating this crisis with such grace and dignity. His statement speaks volumes. 

“Now we music fans have a role to play.  There was a famous moment in 1987 when U2 covered ‘Helter Skelter’ and Bono introduced it by saying ‘This is a song Charles Manson stole from The Beatles. Well we’re stealing it back.’  For all those of us who admire Arthur Brown, the many artists he influenced and the power of Arthur’s song ‘Fire’ – it is up to us to steal ‘Fire’ back from white supremacists – and restore it to its place in the pantheon of great rock songs. Don’t let ‘Fire’ become an anthem of hate. I suggest that contemporary artists should perform the song live as a show of support. And fans should express their views too. Hashtag: #ReclaimFire”

ThisSmallPlanet.com Review: Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers Bring Better Oblivion live to San Luis, March 11, 2019; Debut New Song "Little Trouble" (Videos)


Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers have brought their Better Oblivion Community Center show out on the road. The third show of the tour so far was last night in San Luis Obispo, California, a college town, home of Cal State Poly.

                                     ThisSmallPlanet.com Live Videos:
                                           Live Videos: "Dylan Thomas" and "Would You Rather"

Conor and Phoebe dropped the Better Oblivion Community Center album unexpectedly, then appeared on Colbert and CBS This Morning Saturday Sessions before starting this US and European tour.

The opening act, Sloppy Jane, caught a lot of people by surprise and put on a hell of a show.

Better Oblivion performed songs from the new album, as well as a Replacements cover ("Can't Hardly Wait"), Conor's classic "Lua" (which Phoebe joked was a new song she "wrote on the bus"), and two songs from Phoebe's 2017 breakthrough album Stranger In The Alps: "Would You Rather" (with Conor reprising his duet with her from the album) and "Funeral" (with Conor singing lead on a revamped punk romp, Desaparecidos-style, with Phoebe joining in on the chorus) - which had been preceded by Phoebe doing a Conor/Bright Eyes song "Bad Blood":

                                                                                          "Bad Blood"

There was also a brand new Better Oblivion song "Little Trouble". Conor explained it was meant to be available as a 7" on tour but hadn't arrived in time:

                                                                                      "Little Trouble"

Conor and Phoebe both seemed relaxed and in fine form, performing for an appreciative young audience.

Set List for Better Oblivion Community Center feat. Phoebe Bridgers & Conor Oberst, Fremont Theater, San Luis Obispo, California, Monday, March 11, 2019:



More ThisSmallPlanet.com Videos:

                                                                                       "Forest Lawn"


                                                          "Can't Hardly Wait" (The Replacements)


                                                                                            "Funeral"

It was a great show. A come back for Conor and a triumph for Phoebe. I'm sure there is much more to come from our friends at The Better Oblivion Community Center...

One of my favorite songs...

                                                                                         "Lua"


                                                                               



"Dylan Thomas" (Official Video)



ThisSmallPlanet.com live videos of Conor appearing as Bright Eyes at the Fox Theater, Oakland, April 12, 2011:



Phoebe's side project: boygenius. An indie supergroup consisting of Phoebe, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker. They released an EP in 2018. Here they are live at KEXP:



On February 13, 2019, The New York Times published an article which documented serious allegations of abusive and manipulative behavior against rocker Ryan Adams by several female artists, including Phoebe Bridgers. Phoebe later issued a further statement on Instagram as a caption on a boygenius photo:



Many fans think Phoebe's breakthrough album Stranger In The Alps contains numerous thinly-veiled references to Adams.





"Here's a song about somebody I hate..."
