October just ended. So it’s time to talk about a few cool new songs we discovered. Featuring King Krule, Pugwash, Florist and AK/DK. Plus, a closing cover of an Elvis Costello song by Lydia Loveless. (All with special guest Sam Lisker, aka “Intern Sam.”)
To close Elvis Costello Week, we review this important musician’s iconoclastic career. Our friend Mike Snider joins in the conversation.
For his fourth album, 1980’s “Get Happy!!,” Elvis Costello went all-out soul. It makes us happy (including guest Mike Snider).
Elvis Costello’s third album, 1979’s “Armed Forces,” as examined on Rockin’ the Suburbs. Live from Mike Snider’s house.
Elvis Costello Week continues. Today, we explore his most excellent second album, 1978’s “This Year’s Model.” Our friend Mike Snider joins in the conversation.
Elvis Costello’s stellar debut album, “My Aim is True,” was released 40 years ago this month. We take the opportunity to launch Elvis Costello Week on Rockin’ the Suburbs. With guest star Mike Snider.
Our friend Dan Gursky joins the show to discuss a recent Robyn Hitchcock concert he attended, in which the singer took requests via Twitter. (Dan also wrote about the experience at SuburbsPod.com.)
Perfect Pop Week continues with two listener picks, one by Texas pop-rockers Fastball (it was the song of the summer in 1998) and the other by New Zealand indie rockers Garageland.
