Bradley’s Almanac

[The Almanac Radio Show!] Episode 2 Rundown: November 2023

Posted on November 8, 2023 at 10:54 am | No Comments


Episode two! I guess that means this is a regular thing now? The November edition of “The Almanac” aired on Wednesday the 1st at 8pm Eastern over on Uncertain.FM, and got a replay the following day at 4pm. This thing’ll happen on the first Wednesday of every month until I burn out (which may be sooner than you think). What’s in it? A couple hours of mostly new songs, a bunch from bands I’ve recently seen or plan to see, with the occasional random fave thrown in. This month even brought the public debut of a new track (see #12 below), which I hope to have happen every once in awhile. Each month I’ll share the track-by-track rundown here. Miss this month’s? Set a reminder for Wednesday, December 6th at 8pm EST (or 12/7 at 4pm) to catch episode numero three.

Here ’tis, the rundown for episode 2 of The Almanac


The AlmanacEpisode 2

on Uncertain.FM

Wednesday, November 1st, 2023
from 8-10pm EST


1. The Wedding Present – “Happy Birthday (Altered Images cover)

From their May 24th, 1988 Peel Session, which can be found on their Complete Peel Sessions compilation. Played because, well, it was my birthday.

2. The Umbrellas – “Three Cheers!

The lead-off track from their forthcoming second album “Fairweather Friend”, out January 26th, 2024 on Slumberland Records & Tough Love Records.

3. Ducks Ltd. – “The Main Thing

New single out on Carpark Records, featuring Ratboys’ Julia Steiner, Dehd’s Jason Balla, and Moontype’s Margaret McCarthy on backing vocals.

4. Guided By Voices – “The Race Is On, The King Is Dead

The first song from the upcoming “Nowhere To Go But Up” LP, due out November 24th. For those keeping score at home, it’s their 3rd record this year, and 39th full length ever. Ridiculous. Happy birthday to frontman Robert Pollard, who turned 66 on Halloween.

5. Circus Devils – “Strawberry Limousine

Another Pollard-fronted-project, this one with the Tobias Brothers, and this track’s from their upcoming “Squeeze The Needle” LP. A delayed request from Allison for last month’s episode, so I’m happy to finally honor that ask.

6. Dowsing – “It Was Easy

From the Chicago band’s upcoming fifth LP, out on December 1st from Storm Chasers LTD and Asian Man Records. Video here.

7. Car Colors – “I’ll Bear

The first new music from former Wrens member Charles Bissell in ages, a long-awaited, 3-track EP titled “Old Death”, out on November 17th. It’s a per-cursor to an upcoming full-length, and its release marks the welcome resurrection of Absolutely Kosher records.

8. The American Analog Set – “The Quiet Dark

I’ll admit I’ve been listening to pretty much nothing but the new American Analog Set record, “For Forever”, since it arrived on my doorstep a couple weeks ago. I can’t believe it exists. Out of nowhere, one of my favorite bands of all time announces a new record and less than a month later it’s in my hands. And it’s incredible. Filled with gratitude over here.

9. DIIV – “Housejam

A new stand-alone single from DIIV, who have been opening up for Depeche Mode on their current tour. The song is currently only available to stream through this slightly strange website over at

10. Drop Nineteens – “The Price Was High

Off their comeback record, “Hard Light”, which just arrived on Friday.

11. Landing – “Awake

From the Connecticut quartet’s brand new digital single, available via Bandcamp.

12. Ezra Cares – “Heavy Things (premiere)

The premiere of an upcoming digital single (out on November 24th) from Ezra Walsh, aka Ezra Cares. The song features his dad TW (Lo Tom/The Soft Drugs/Pedro the Lion) on drums and his brother Noah on bass, and it’s his first new music since a 2020 solo album, which is available on Bandcamp. You’ll be able to grab “Heavy Things” there in a few weeks.

13. Say Sue Me – “4am

The Buson, South Korea quartet’s From the Lush co-founder’s first-ever solo LP, “Pearlies”, which came out on October 20th on Sonic Cathedral

15. Trash Sun – “Get Me Through

The lead off track from their new “Purgatory Road” LP, due out on November 11th. They’ve got a bunch of November East Coast tourdates booked, including the 12th at the Cantab in Cambridge and the 20th at O’Brien’s in Allston.

16. Idles – “Dancer

The first shared song from their next LP, “Tangk”, out in February.

17. Bar Italia – “Worlds Greatest Emoter

From “The Twits” LP, which just came out last Friday courtesy of Matador in the US.

18. Night Court – “Little Darkness

An epic that clocks in at 20 seconds, shorter than the intros for most others. This comes off their new “Frater Set” EP on Dromedary Records, which you can grab on a lathe cut 7-inch.

19. Ian Sweet – “Smoking Again

From the just-released “Sucker” LP on Polyvinyl.

20. The Reds, Pinks & Purples – “Creature Hero

Off the recently-released 5-track “Murder, Oral Sex & Cigarettes” digital EP.

21. Letters To Cleo – “Bad Man

From a 7-inch that will be sold at their shows this month celebrating the 30th anniversary of their “Aurora Gory Alice” album. They hit the Paradise in Boston on November 17th & 18th with the Gigolo Aunts.

22. Laughing Chimes – “A Promise To Keep

Off their new digital Slumberland single, on which they also cover the Ocean Blue’s “Ballerina Out Of Control”.

23. Joe Wong – “Into Nothing

A new song (with guests Mary Timony & Matt Cameron) from the Trap Set podcast host’s “Mere Survival” LP, due out on February 2nd. Other collaborators include Nate Mendel, Jim Keltner, Money Mark, Anna Waronker, Craig Wedren, & Joey Waronker.

24. Grandaddy Watercooler

Jason Lytle returns in February with an LP titled “Blue Wav” on Dangerbird, and this is the first taste.

25. J. Robbins – “Everything Is Right (Velvet Monkeys cover)

J. offered up an excellent 3-song digital EP a couple weeks back ahead of Halloween titled “Three Masks” that includes covers of Einstürzende Neubauten, Government Issue, and this one, his take on Velvet Monkey’s “Everything Is Right”.

26. Superdown – “Away

Off their new “Return to Sender” LP, which came out a couple weeks back on Count Your Lucky Stars.

27. Saturdays At Your Place – “Pourover

From a new No Sleep Records digital compilation called “That’s What Friends Are For”, which also features songs Summerbruise and Shoplifter, and arrives on November 17th.

28. The Beths with Pickle Darling – “Brand New Colony (Postal Service cover)

A cover of the Postal Service song from a split 7-inch that also includes Car Seat Headrest doing Death Cab For Cutie’s “We Looked Like Giants”.

29. The New Pornographers – “Firework in the Falling Snow (acoustic w/Aimee Mann)

A newly-recorded stripped-down version of a song from their most recent LP, “Continue as a Guest”, with guest vocals from Aimee Mann.

30. Liam Lynch – “Before

The first single from an upcoming album entitled “What The Moths Say”.

31. Gregory and the Hawk – “Some White Mountain

From the “Quarantunes” LP, just out last Friday on Bandcamp. I’m a proud contributor to Meredith Godreau’s Patreon page, where she’s been sharing these songs as in-progress demos with performance videos & the occasional live stream. A true comfort during lockdown and beyond, and I’m glad that the songs have all been compiled, mastered, and released so that more people can hear ’em.

32. Jolie Laide – “Why I Drink

A new collaboration from Nina Nastasia & Jeff MacLeod, their self-titled debut is out on November 17th from Oscar Street Records.

33. Idaho – “Just Might Run

A song from the repressed and newly-remastered edition of “The Lone Gunman” LP, which just came out on Halloween. Keep an eye out for the “Traces of Glory: The Musical Journey of Idaho” documentary, which I was fortunately enough to see recently. Deeply moving and well worth a watch for fans & future fans alike.

34. Oneida – “Halloween (Siouxsie & the Banshees cover)

A newly-shared Siouxsie & The Banshees cover from Oneida with guest vocals from Katie Eastburn (aka KATIEE).

35. Matt Pond PA – “Halloween Two

A duet with Alexa Rose now available on Bandcamp, and a sequel of sorts to the song “Halloween” on the 2005 “Several Arrows Later” LP. They’ll be releasing a collaborative EP sometime soon.

36. Lou Barlow – “Haunted House (Raw Impressions version)

From the Oct. 16th mini-music Monday episode of the indispensable Raw Impressions podcast that Lou hosts with his wife Adele. If you don’t regularly stream that podcast, I highly recommend it. Those two are a goddamn delight together.

[The Almanac Radio Show!] Episode 1 Rundown: October 2023

Posted on October 5, 2023 at 5:20 pm | No Comments

Wednesday, October 4th brought the debut episode of a new streaming radio show I’m hosting over at Uncertain.FM called, surprisingly enough, “The Almanac“. On the first Wednesday of every month at 8pm EST (and repeating the next day at 4pm EST) I’ll spin a 2-hour set of mostly new songs, many from bands I’ve recently seen or will be catching soon, with the occasional older fave or selected spotlight. Once the Thursday repeat airs I’ll share the track list here, with brief track details and upcoming shows that I mentioned during the episode. If you missed this one, check out the next new episode on Wednesday night, November 1st.

So here it is, a rundown of episode 1 of The Almanac

The AlmanacEpisode 1

on Uncertain.FM
Wednesday, October 4th, 2023
from 8 – 10pm Eastern time

1. Madelines – “Bradley’s Almanac

From a 1994 self-titled cassette, kinda had to kick off the first show with this one. More info on the band and this song right here.

2. Starflyer 59 – “Young In My Head

The title track from Jason Martin’s excellent and criminally underheard 2019 record. “Now I’m just young in my head, Where do I go to feel like I’m there again?”. Apparently my answer to this question is ‘lots of rock shows’.

3. Hey I’m Outside – “Racecar

New Bandcamp single from Hey I’m Outside, the latest project from former I Wish I Could Skateboard members Patrick & Hannah. I adored their old band, so was very happy when they started playing out. I’ve seen them a couple times as a duo, and they’ve recently recruited a live drummer, so I’m looking forward to seeing the trio at Idle Hands in Malden, MA on November 10th with Talking Kind & Ezra Cohen.

4. Drop Nineteens – “Scapa Flow

Their first new song in 30 years, from an LP titled “Hard Light” that’s out on November 3rd on Wharf Cat. They had to delay a string of reunion tourdates from this month until next April, but I am a patient boy.

5. Squirrel Flower – “Full Time Job

From the out-next-week “Tomorrow’s Fire” LP. Ella Williams & company will play Boston on October 24th at Brighton Music Hall with Truth Club and Merce Lemon.

6. DIIV – “When You Sleep (My Bloody Valentine cover)

DIIV covered this MBV song back in 2017 during a stripped-down set and released it last year on the “Live at The Murmrr Theatre” LP. Zachary Cole Smith & his band recently started a tour with Depeche Mode, and they’ll hit a cozy little venue called the TD Garden in Boston on Halloween night.

7. The Garment District – “The Island of Stability

From the “Flowers Telegraphed to All Parts of the World” LP, which was recently released on Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records. Jennifer Baron (from The Ladybug Transistor, Saturnine, & more) is behind this new-ish project, and she brought along some friends & family to contribute to the debut record. Speaking of Ladybug, they’ve got some rare tourdates coming up in November, including shows in New York, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Kalamazoo, & Chicago, and I’m trying to figure out how the hell I can get myself to one of those.

8. Evelyn Pope – “Surround Yourself In Sound

An new Bandcamp single from the former half of electronic/pop duo Ashby and current member of Boston-area band Rosecomb.

9. Land of Talk – “Your Beautiful Self

The first shared song from Elizabeth Powell’s next LP, “Performances” which arrives next week on Saddle Creek.

10. Justine and the Unclean – “Fourth Love

A song from “The Signal Light”, what is now sadly the last album from Justine Covault’s band, as she tragically passed away in June, far too young. Obviously a devastating loss for her friends & family, but also a tremendous one for the Boston-area music community, where she was a singular force, putting on shows and putting out records on her Red on Red record label. To mark the loss and celebrate her life, there’s a tribute night happening tomorrow, Friday, October 6th, at the Crystal Ballroom in Somerville.

11. John P. Strohm – “Ready For Nothing

The lead off track from the former Blake Babies/Antenna/Lemonheads member’s first new record in 15 years, “Something To Look Forward To”, which was just released on Propeller Sound Recordings.

12. Kristin Hersh – “Thank You, Corner Blight

From the Throwing Muses/50 Foot Wave frontwoman’s new solo record, “Clear Pond Road”. I’m a proud Strange Angel, which is the name for a collective of fans who pitch in to help her create and record her new music, so if you’re into something like that, go right here.

13. Belly – “Sweet Ride

My favorite Belly song? Sometimes! Originally from their 1992 “Gepetto” EP, it was most recently included on their “Bees” rarities collection. The band has returned to live action this week and is playing some east coast shows, including last night and tonight, October 4th & 5th, here in Boston at the Paradise. In a couple weeks they’ll hit the west coast for a few dates with the Breeders (and I sooo wish I could make it out to one of those :-/).

14. Hallelujah the Hills – “Samantha, You’re the Only Mistake I Know How to Make (early rough mix)

An early rough mix for their Patreon subscribers, to be eventually be heard in its final form on their insane, in-progress 4-album project titled DECKS. A 13-track album for each suit, 52 songs in all, this one will eventually be found on the Diamonds LP.

15. Lost Film – “Stay

From the Easthampton band’s new record “Keep It Together”. Lost Film’s set at the Rockwell in Somerville back in August was one of my personal highlights of last summer’s Nice, A Fest.

16. Film School – “Baby

Off the LA band’s recently-released full length, “Field”, on Felte Records.

17. Speedy Ortiz – “Ranch vs. Ranch

From their new “Rabbit Rabbit” LP. They recently played the Armory in Somerville, MA near the beginning of a simply massive North American tour, which winds up in Detroit around Thanksgiving.

18. Palehound – “Clutch

Off their latest record, “Eye On The Bat”. As a longtime Palehound fan I was psyched to see them score an opening slot for a couple of recent Boygenius dates, but I was definitely not psyched to get shut out on first-round tickets. Resale prices were nuts so I skipped it, but thankfully they announced a headlining show at the Sinclair in Cambridge on Wednesday, October 18th, and I am very, very there.

19. The Reds, Pinks & Purples – “Build Love

The title track off a brand new RP&Ps Bandcamp EP. I love that Glenn Donaldson shares random surprise tracks and cool covers over there. But I do not love that his band has yet to play the Boston area. :-/

20. Will Johnson – “The Conductor Calls

A track from the Centro-matic frontman’s ace new solo LP, “No Ordinary Crown”. Will has been touring as part of Jason Isbell’s band for awhile now (and was on TV earlier this week!), which means no solo tours in support of the new record, but I’m hopeful that’ll happen down the road.

21. Sparklehorse – “Chaos of the Universe

From the recently released posthumous record. It’s been over 13 years since Mark Linkous left us, and his close family & friends spent some of that time digging through all his nearly-finished songs so they could gift us with the “Bird Machine” LP, which arrived last month.

22. Free Range – “Want To Know

I skipped the pre-show research and went in cold for Free Range’s opening slot with Ratboys last week, and was very pleasantly surprised. Enough to stop by the merch table and grab their debut LP, “Practice”, which starts off with this song that closed out their live set.

23. Pilot to Gunner – “Ship Jumpers

My favorite song from PtG’s latest LP on Arctic Rodeo, “Hail Hallucinator”. The NYC quartet was supposed to play Friday night at the Middle East with Garrison, Orange Island, Sinaloa, and Not Bad Not Well, but had to bail, unfortunately. The rest of the bands are still playing, including headliner…

24. Garrison Stand Up, State Your Name

A new/old track, this was originally released on a split 7-inch with Orange Island back in 2003, and has been remastered for a new edition that officially comes out tomorrow (Friday, 10/6), when both bands are playing the Middle East together. If you ordered it direct, like I did, then it should already be in your hands and on your turntable.

25. Stars Like Ours – “What’s Going Wrong

The lead-off track from their “Better Every Day” EP, which arrives this Friday courtesy of area label Rum Bar Records.

26. Superchunk – “February Punk

Another old-slash-new song that was a b-side to a limited edition 7-inch back in 2010, and can now be more easily found on their upcoming Misfits & Mistakes compilation that gathers together singles, b-sides, and other rare tracks. It’s out on October 27th courtesy of Merge, of course.

27. Tsunami – “Old City

What better after an old/new Superchunk song than an old/new Tsunami track? This one’s a 1997 b-side that was just digitally reissued by the Numero Group, hopefully the first of many that will, fingers crossed, lead up to a massive Tsunami box set.

28. Lightheaded – “Love Is Overrated

The closing track from this New Jersey combo’s “Good Good Great!” EP, which comes out on October 13th from the esteemed Slumberland Record label.

29. Connie Lovatt – “Heart

A song from her first-ever solo record, “Coconut Mirror”, which was just released on the Enchanté record label, which is run by the crew behind the wonderful long-running magazine Chickfactor magazine. Connie played in the Pacific Ocean, and was one half of duo Containe with Fontaine Toups from Versus, she’s got a ridiculous list of guest collaborators on the LP: James McNew from Yo La Tengo, Jim White form the Dirty Three, Bill Callahan (who Containe used to play with in Smog), James Baluyut from Versus & Plus Minus, the list goes on. Head over to Enchanté on Bandcamp to grab it.

30. Milly – “Grab The Wheel

A brand new single from LA band Milly, who are currently on tour and will play O’Brien’s in Allston, MA on Sunday, October 22nd with Rocket & Crescent Ridge. Cannot wait to see them play that room.
