Options June 17, 2015: I'm back! Back in the New Jersey Groove! With a live set from COLD BEAT!

Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop‑up player!

San Francisco's Cold Beat was started by Hannah Lew as an outlet for songs she'd been working on while playing in Grass Widow, but "didn't feel like Grass Widow songs." With that band on unannounced and indefinite hiatus, Lew completed those songs and continued writing on her own, releasing an EP in 2013 and the full-length album Over Me (Crime On The Moon) last year. Reviewers struggled to put the album's sound in a familiar box, describing it variously as "surf-rock," "post-punk," "punkish," "poppy" and (gasp) "new wave." Listen to their live set and decide for yourself!

Welcome back, Evan! Will you treat us to your European haul tonight, or is it still in transit?

Even the elusive 4th section of the wall size poster of Kiss wasn't enough to get me to buy the Peter Criss solo album. But the Ace one was the only one ya needed.

Thanks for the opener EFD! Perfect.

Great live set from Cold Beat coming at the bottom of the hour!

Barkevious, I'll have to partially disagree; Love Bomb is pretty great, and underrated, especially side 2

speaking of chrysalis - one of the worst money-makers in their history was 'dub housing.' It's not space-ace, but good stuff nonetheless.

Cold Beat: very nice. And these FMU live sets are always so well engineered, really impressive.

...wonder if there's a compilation somewhere of songs about the Dalai Lama?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Michele:

Child Abuse is an amazing band!!!!!
  10:35pm JakeGould:

Everyone should be sure to say “Child Abuse” is a band because child abuse.
Avatar 10:37pm bobdoesthings:

yeah.. it's a strange feeling to say "Child Abuse is great!!" you need to insert ",the band," in there..
  10:37pm JakeGould:

Also, your bed music is still that off-ish bed music. So hey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Michele:

True true Jake, when I announced it on air last week I yelled "Child Abuse is awesome!" Didn't make that mistake here tonight though...
Avatar 10:38pm bobdoesthings:

michelle did it right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm efd:

I feel like I can't blame the music bed any more, though. That was just straight up incompetence.

greetings all. The Little Racer track is very Pseu "Thing With A Hook".

I was in the other room when I heard the airhorn and thought "I'm missing the airhorn." I nearly rushed back in to hear it honk at full volume. I think I need help.

Live set was great.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm efd:

it's been there all along!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm coelacanth:

nooo, really?!
is it more audible in the mix lately for some reason? i never noticed it until maybe a month or 2 ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm efd:

I think it's a little more prominent in the version I started using the last time I was on the air, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm coelacanth:

hmm,but it was always there... i feel like a failure for never noticing it before!

@hi coel! have you never before noticed that efd's bed music is derived from American Woman?

@coelacanth: “Lordz of Brooklyn” sampled “American Woman” for their single, “Saturday Night Fever.” www.youtube.com...

Get the same feeling from them as i did when i first heard Mars Audiac Quintet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm coelacanth:

Thanks Jake. i never heard of that.
...yes P-90. i never realized! the lead is chopped up and the beat is different; and i never heard the rhythm git in there until within the last couple months.
-maybe if i heard it first in the context of a rap song i'd have known it! but as bed music,it's a piece of a song made of pieces of a song....'never even crossed my mind!
...i thoroughly failed.
Avatar 11:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@coel.: This is how the value of a human being is judged here - by their ability to recognize 'American Woman' in a sample...
  11:47pm P-90:

@coel haha not a fail, just relates to an interesting question of pattern recognition- how far can you take an abstraction from something familiar before it's no longer recognized as familiar?
  11:48pm Eddy in Australia:

@Evan: Thanks for the record shopping update. Next time you play that Hookworms song, pair it with "On Returning" by Wire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm coelacanth:

no P-90, RR is right!
...now where's that sword i talked Claw! into not committing seppuku with?
Avatar 11:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always referring to the film 'Copyright Criminals' about samples; how recognizable they make the sample is the game exactly...
  11:55pm P-90:

Thanks for that, we should keep Claw aground a while longer.
Maybe being ancient enough to have The Guess Who imprinted in your circuits by early adolescence is a factor here...

(of course i had never heard the "lordz of brooklyn" before tonight, or so i thought.)
