Snobcast



Do you feel like every week there’s some band your “eccentric” co-worker/friend is trying to turn you on to? Are you confused as to which band with the word “wolf” or “horse” you’re supposed to like? Lucky for you, every week DJ Father Gui

Snobcast: The Raconteurs

Mon, 03 Mar 2008 15:50:03 +0000

Due to the Flu... I was unable to find you any new music for this week so I've compiled some classics. Starting it off is the "supergroup" The Raconteurs. Fun Fact: In Australia the band is forced to go by the name The Saboteurs due to conflicts with an Australian band with the name Raconteurs. OK, that's enough. I'm heading back to bed. I need to get healthy before SXSW. Have a good week, bitches!! See the rest of this blog at Donnybrook Writing Academy.

Snobcast: Cyborg Umbrella

Sun, 24 Feb 2008 23:00:44 +0000

2008... the year for Hipster-hop? Maybe. I've been thinking about and using that term for a while (about a year now) and I was only a little surprised to see Blender use the hipster-hop phrase to describe the scene bubblying up in places like Chicago, Baltimore and NY.

Snobcast: I Was A Cub Scout

Tue, 19 Feb 2008 14:29:42 +0000

It seems funny that just two weeks ago I was denouncing electro-pop by playing Hot Chip and Boards of Canada, and this week I'm bringing you new UK synth-pop in the form of "Pink Squares" by I Was A Cub Scout. The first US released single from this band was dropped on the states last week. The former-one-man-now-two-man-band has been racking up air time on BBC Radio 1 and MTV 2. Although Todd Marriott's voice could easily front a run-of-the-mill emo band, he sounds more in the range of a new wave inspired Connor Oberst.

Snobcast: British Sea Power

Mon, 11 Feb 2008 02:39:19 +0000

Here's what everyone else is saying: “A masterpiece of epic proportions” The Word “Brilliant songs… stirring anthemics… the glorious sound of a band going for broke” The Guardian **** “Dangerously epic” Daily Telegraph “Genius… a guitar laureate’s masterpiece” Maxim ***** “British Sea Power return in style” Mojo **** “CD of the week… neo-orchestral grandeur” The Observer Here's what we said: Do You Like Anal Music? ***1/2 Armed with passionate anthems, brainy Brits rise up and take it in the ass. Yeah, we can be pretty crass, but it's all in fun. Now go enjoy this weeks Snobcast and then head over to Donnybrook Writing Academy

Snobcast: Hot Chip

Sun, 03 Feb 2008 16:42:33 +0000

Electro-pop. I’ve never liked the word. Like a cigar, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth and yet I always take one when offered. I feel like an amnesia sufferer when ever thinking of the topic. I will swear up-and-down that I can’t stand the genre and then I catch myself enjoying, ugh, Moby. Well, finally I have a band that doesn’t force me to contradict myself. Hot Chip is that band. Maybe the reason I can get behind this five-piece electro group is because they have soul. Their second album, 2006’s The Warning, sounds like Kraftwerk being influenced by Afrika Bambaataa, rather than the other way around. Read the full blog at Donnybrook Writing Academy

Snobcast: Cass McCombs

Mon, 28 Jan 2008 06:40:48 +0000

(image) This week's feature artist is new to me, but may not be new to you.

Cass McCombs first released his recordings in 2002 on Baltimore's Monitor Records and he's lived in about as many cities as years he's been recording his music. Going from California to Baltimore to New York to Michigan back to Cali and, finally, to Chicago (for now). His new album Dropping the Writ, an informal term which Wikipedia defines as “the procedure in some government systems where the head of government goes to the head of state and formally advise them to dissolve parliament”, is released on Domino Records of London.

Snobcast: Lupe Fiasco

Mon, 21 Jan 2008 05:59:01 +0000

Lupe Fiasco hasn't been able to "Kick, Push" his way past the early hype that surrounded his first effort, '06s Food & Liquor. This is unfortunate considering he's this generations answer to the eminent group, A Tribe Called Quest. His rhymes are fun and intelligent and never plummet into the usual benighted and boorish blather that most MCs rely on today. That is probably why you haven't heard him. Too bad his new album The Cool probably won't change that. With that being said, I kick off this weeks Snobcast with his new single "Superstar" and end it with another song called "Superstarr Pt. 2" by my favorite Canadian MC, k-os. Make the jump to see the rest of this weeks play list. Read the rest of this blog at The Donnybrook Writing Academy.

Snobcast: Golden Age Hip Hop Vol. 1

Mon, 14 Jan 2008 20:22:21 +0000

Father “Born Cipher Cipher” Guido has graciously let me hijack this week’s Snobcast to bring you a sampling of pre-1990 New School hip hop that I think is still as exuberant, fresh and thrilling as the day it was made. If these joints give you even a fraction of the pleasure they have given me, I shall consider this endeavor a wild success. Thank you for listening.

Snobcast Top 40 Albums of 2007

Mon, 07 Jan 2008 18:07:49 +0000

Bring on the music of 2008. Please!! I don't want to hear another fucking song off Neon Bible, Kala, or Sky Blue Sky for a long time. Now I know I promised to have the official Donnybrook Best-Of list ready last week, but I just could not listen to any more Band of Horses. Now that I've detoxed from the overload of year-end lists I'm finally ready to release the best (and last) Best-Of that you'll need to read. Our readers voted, commented, and almost OD'd on the Snobcast Recap: 2007 series. I narrowed down the most mentioned albums and have compiled the best Snobcast of last year.

Snobcast Recap: 2007.14

Thu, 03 Jan 2008 22:14:30 +0000

Awww, the Best-Of list. Everybody longs to have the definitive outlook, but nobody ever gets it right. So here’s what we will be doing: We will be analyzing the year end lists of some other "reputable" music publications, I’ll sort of edit them accordingly to fit my preferences, and then play those songs on the Snobcast. Then you, the reader, can tell me what you think should stay; what should go; and what should be added or subtracted from the list/playlist. In the end we will have compiled the definitive Best of 2007 list. Read the full blog at http://klf.podOmatic.com/enclosure/2008-01-03T14_14_30-08_00.mp3
