Cuppa podcast

Just in case none of you bother reading all that stuff on the left I’ve been doing DJ shifts under the Cuppa Joe moniker on KALX in Berkeley for a bunch of years now. Sadly my current shift (9:30 to midnight every Thursday) will expire in a couple of weeks but I’m hoping to get another spot soon. It’s part of the station’s mission to have Cal students on the air most of the time and while that makes it hard on us “community members” who love spinning records and running our mouths I have to applaud the policy.

While typing up the previous blurb about Vampire Weekend’s limited edition 7″ it occurred to me that posting this set from my show on March 13 would be a nice way to celebrate a timelsot I’ll sorely miss (seeing as how it contains the song from the VW video and all).

Track list:
The Dodos – “Fools” (from Visiter on French Kiss)
DJ Paul V – “Tequila Lip Gloss (Lil Mama vs. The Champs)” (from the Best Of Bootie 2007 compilation discussed here)
The Coasters – “Charlie Brown” (from the Loud, Fast & Out of Control compilation on Rhino)
Vampire Weekend – “A-Punk” (from their self-titled record on XL)
Binky Griptite & The Mellomatics – “Mellomatic Mood” (from the 7” single on Daptone)

Limited Vampire Weekend 7" for Record Store Day

As previously mentioned, April 19 is the day to kick down some corn in your local indie record store. Not only has Metallica signed on to kick off the national event with their first in-store in a decade (go Mountain View) but indie rock sensation Vampire Weekend are getting in on the limited edition fun with a special 7″ single available only at stores participating in Record Store Day. It’ll feature the album version of “A-Punk” with an unreleased rehearsal version of “Oxford Camera” on the b-side.

The video for “A-Punk”

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
