For listener Keith Jacobsen’s patron episode, he invites his 15-year-old niece, Aspen Jacobsen, to join the Skype conversation. Aspen is a singer-songwriter from Michigan whose latest album, “Love Each Other Right,” was produced by Dominic John Davis, long-time bassist for Jack White.
We invited listeners to contribute to a big playlist of great songs from the 2010s. We’re playing some of those tunes all week. Today: Case/Lang/Veirs, Sleigh Bells, Drive-By Truckers, David Bowie, Tom Petty and Jack White.
2018 album favorites continue this week. Jimmy Lonetti of Minneapolis calls in to talk up “Longwave” by Bonny Doon. And Adam Coop of Louisville loves Jack White’s “Boarding House Reach.”
It’s Jim’s turn to make another Perfect Pop pick. He goes dark with a 2012 song by Jack White. Plus, a discussion with the members of Piramid Scheme about cell phones at concerts.
Jim’s new music picks from March. A sort of “modern classic” theme, with original songs by Jack White and the Lemon Twigs and a cover by Lucius.
The stars aligned, and Jim & Patrick went to separate shows on the same night! They recount their experiences at the Royal Blood and Helium concerts in Washington, D.C.
It’s Record Store Day Week (does that make sense?) on Rockin’ the Suburbs . Today, we talk with our friend Adam Coop, who camped out for hours to get the best special releases. (Plus. White Reaper!)
We talk about country, with a music fan in another country. Friend of the podcast Georgia Makitalo picks her favorite song of last year and also talks about growing up in musical hotbed Minneapolis.
