    The Body's Lee Buford - Songs of Our Lives #22

    Explicit

    For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite The Body’s Lee Buford on the show. First, we get the other perspective on Dis Fig & The Body’s “Orchards of a Futile Heaven.” This record just absolutely rips. Then, things go off with the Jason Molina’s crushing music, Neutral Milk Hotel’s being too ubiquitous, music that’s so vapid it rocks, Peter Gabriel’s wild romantic lines, the brutality and awesomeness of “Cop Killer,” Willie Nelson bringing a sadness to someone else’s song that is devastating, the undeniable nature of Dead Prez, our mutual Roman Empire, and more! Listen to all of Lee’s picks HERE Dis Fig & The Body “Orchards of a Futile Heaven” The Body on Instagram Songs of Our Lives is a podcast series hosted by Brad Rose of Foxy Digitalis that explores the music that's made us and left a certain mark. Whether it's a song we associate with our most important moments, something that makes us cry, the things we love that nobody else does, or our favorite lyrics, we all have our own personal soundtrack.

  • Meg Mulhearn & I chat about the solstice and music pairing with wine, but I ran out mental capacity so there’s no Album of the Week but if there was it’d be Afrikan Sciences latest (will do it up proper next week!)

    On this episode of the Foxy Digitalis Podcast, I talk to Meg Mulhearn about her latest album, “Let It Burn Through the Night” on Ceremony of Seasons. We get into the transformational magic of the winter solstice, multi-sensory listening sessions, and a lot more. And there’s technically not an album of the week this week. It was going to be Afrikan Sciences’s “.5x100Rf(est.1974)” (which is so, so good) and it’ll be a proper pick next week. Promise! This Week’s Links: Meg Mulhearn “Let It Burn Through The Night” Meg Mulhearn’s website Ceremony of Seasons Afrikan Sciences “.5x100Rf(est.1974)” Mind Over Mirrors “Particles, Peds & Pores” Nina Dante & Brad Rose “Weep You No More Sad Fountains” Foxy Digitalis is an online music resource and organization promoting music in the margins with the idea that sound is for everyone.

    Dis Fig - Songs of Our Lives #21

    For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite Felicia Chen aka Dis Fig on the show. There are collaborations that just make sense, and one listen to Dis Fig & The Body’s “Orchards of a Futile Heaven” screams that these two projets are meant to collide. After talking about how that happened, we blast off talking about how early is too early for a memory of Naughty by Nature, the desolation Sufjan Stevens can bring, how Earth is also sexy… maybe, earnestness going too far, Senyawa’s magic, getting hyped with Nero, Portishead’s greatness, and loads more!

    For this episode of Songs of Our Lives, I invite Helado Negro on the show. After talking a little about his process and the story of Lupe Lopez, he takes us on quite the journey (including me reacting to one of his off-the-cuff picks live - ha!). We get into the all-time greatness of Teddy Pendergrass, Piero’s timeless moments, Bonnie Raitt’s calypso side, the utter seduction of Maria Marquez’s “Loveroom,” Caliban bringing it, the understated magic of Luiz Bonfa, being moved to tears by Xenia Rubinos, and so much more!
