ROGER KNOX FEATURE on National Geographic Radio

On this past weekend’s episode of National Geographic Weekend, host Boyd Matson interviews Aboriginal Australian Country & Western singer Roger Knox about his latest album Stranger In My Land. His folks, country and rock n’ roll-hybrid songs were written by Aborigine artists – some handed-down over generations, but not widely sung. In their conversation, Roger shares why he loves country music’s ability to tell a story and how many people in Australia’s native populations balk at the concept of being “Australian”.

It's 10 minutes or so, so STOP compulsively reading about the new Royal Baby and LEARN something for a change.

It's full of music streams too.  Read/Listen to it HERE

Jon Langford Helps Close Down Maxwell's in style...

Waco Brother/Mekon Jon Langford helped close down one of indie rock's great venues this week, Maxwell's in Hoboken.

It was, as expected, a classy affair.  A sampling:

“I went to the doctor recently, and he told me I had to stop masturbating,” Langford announced. “I asked him why.”

“Because I’m trying to take your pulse!” he concluded, to a cymbal shot from drummer Steve Goulding.

JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound's new music video for Howl single "Rouse Yourself" premiered on Entertainment Weekly today. The video stars Aubrey Plaza (of NBC's Parks & Recreation) and Jake Johnson (of FOX's The New Girl) all tangled in a love-triangle-shaped crime plot involving the band.

No one in the band was hurt in the making of the video.

Maggie Bjorklund's album in Alarm's Best of the 2010's (So Far)

When Maggie's record Coming Home came out in early 2011, it got rave reviews.  Sure, there were a Jenga set of reasons NOT to release it: Danish. Pedal-steel. Unheard of on this side of that there Ocean. Not able to tour much.  Check, check, check and double check.

BUT, once we heard it, we HAD to release it.  Jack White must have thought something of it, as he had her play in his band on tour and on SNL.  And folks are STILL raving about it.  Inspired by the 3rd installment of the Naked Gun trilogy (watch out Det Drebbin, it's OJ Simpson@), the folks at Alarm Magazine have compiled their favorite albums of the first 3 1/3 yrs of the 2010's.  Maggie clocks in at #21.

"Coming Home, is a charming collection of Southwestern folk tunes, and many of her established relationships with US artists help make it so — including guest spots by Calexico, Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), Rachel Flotard (Visqueen), and Jon Auer (The Posies). Coming Home proves itself to be a beautiful debut, from the crooning vocals, Western guitar licks, and cello strikes of “Summer Romance” to the dark guitar lines and ghostly, high-octave contrasts of “Insekt.”

See the full review, the full list and get a song by her HERE

AND, because we want you to hear this record, AND because it's a perfect soundtrack for muggy summer evenings when you are watching the sweat beads roll down the side of the beer bottle, if you order the CD or LP and put ALARM in order notes, we'll throw in either a Bloodshot beer cozy OR a Bloodshot keychain bottle opener.

Now, LISTEN...
