Not Familiar With Serbian Psych? Meet HIGH & DRYs on DHR.

Seriously, tell us one good band from Serbia and we’ll consider stopping what we’re doing right now. How ’bout you just relax and we’ll tell you?

HIGH & DRYs are on DHR; and the truth is it doesn’t matter where good music comes from, it’s just fascinating when it comes out of certain places or under certain conditions . At any rate, we’re glad someone’s high and dry enough somewhere to make music we’ll listen to and share forever. Many [...]

DHR Song of the Day 1/11/11: Al Lay – “Change”

The number 11 is a special character, full of auspicious and mysterious omen. So for today’s 11th day of the 11th year of the new millennium that we’re still desperately trying to figure out (like every other day and year of every other millennia), we’ve chosen Al Lay’s “Change” as song of the day – because goodness and progress often requires a momentous degree of change and rearrange.

DHR Song of the Day 1/2/11: Faking David – “Evolve”

A song from our Canadian brothers to the north, befitting the transition into a new year with growth and change: “Evolve” by Faking David.  An evocation of freedom, freedom of expression, freedom to expand.

DHR On 88.9FM KXLU Los Angeles – Playlist Archives: 12/2/10

Another excellent Thursday show with DJ Jen of KXLU. Spun lots of new music and some fantastic older stuff, including an Indian-influenced set with a classic cover of “Light My Fire” by Ananda Shankar (none other than Ravi Shankar’s nephew). Here’s what we played…

Lord Huron – “the problem with your daughter” (new add)
The Byrds – “bells of rhymney”
The Cyrkle – “please don’t ever leave me”
The Arbors – “so nice”
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – “window shopping”
The Mighty Hannibal – [...]

DHR Beer Pairing Series, vol. 3: Bootlegger’s and Halloween Swim Team

I’m choosing Bootlegger’s Pumpkin Ale as today’s beer of the day. Granted it’s a bit late in the season for a pumpkin ale (they did release it kind of late and there’s still a little bit around if you know where to look) I wanted to recognize Bootlegger’s job well done – it’s a good pumpkin ale! A number of breweries make pumpkin ales now, but not many stand out; Buffalo Bill’s used to be stellar when it was still [...]

DHR Song of the Day 12/29/10: Jerel Dutton – “Fight Back”

How ’bout some reggae rhythm with Jerel Dutton’s “fight back” for today’s song of the day - in honor of Jerel giving it the good fight after recently suffering, enduring, and surviving an extremely deadly car accident, coma and all.

Cheers to you Jerel, and welcome back to the living!  We’ll look forward to more music as your strength continues to build.

DHR Beer Pairing Series, vol. 2: Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine & Fartbarf

What an exceptional brew from Dogfish Head, yet again.  An olde school barleywine that kings, trolls, and cowboys might’ve drank.  Deep, sweet flavors dominate your face while an alarming amount of alcohol takes over your body.  Not for the faint of bladder, this baby will get the inexperienced pissing their pants for sure.

At 15% abv, we recommend kicking back and taking your time with this one – that’s why we find it suitable to listen to “Slowly Slipping Away” off [...]

DHR Song of the Day 12/27/10: Torches In Trees – “New Life/Bloody Hands”

I absolutely love this cut by Torches in Trees; actually, it’s two tracks that play together on their “New Blood New Sight” album: here’s “New Life-Bloody Hands“.

This band is awesome, and this cut demonstrates how so.  It’s full of unexpected transitions, tempo and mood changes, sheer jamming, rocking goodness, and a dash of psychedelics.

I’m never let down by this band and always left wanting more.  Would love to see this Echo Park, CA based band hook up for a show [...]

DHR Beer Pairing Series vol. 1: Full Sail Wreck The Halls & Dirdy Birdy

My choice for Beer of the Day is Full Sail’s “Wreck The Halls” 2010.  It’s one part American IPA (Is there any other kind? Okay, Mikkeller, you’re doin’ pretty good…) and one part winter warmer.  In my opinion, all parts delicious.  It’s not over the top, quite palatable – though not a chick beer, but it would probably sex up the ladies very well.

I recommend listening to some Dirdy Birdy with this fine Oregonian ale.  I’m really enjoying “Oh My [...]
