Arrows & Soundtracks

Hey there! Long time no post! So I've been making this show for Channel 101 for the last 3 months called Arrow and I just wanted to post them here since they're stuffed with music. There's a temporary link up to the tracks at the bottom. Hope you enjoy!

Fela Kuti Interview (1986)


KCRW has posted an interview from their archives with Fela Kuti. I was only introduced to Kuti's music a few months ago and instantly became a big fan. He has one of the most hard fought lives of any artist in history, and you can hear that in his voice in this interview. It was recorded after he was released from an 18 month stint in Nigerian prison. His crime? The government claimed "currency smuggling" but it was more likely because he was heading to LA to play a show at the Hollywood Bowl.

Phantom Planet - Dropped

To be honest, I haven't really thought about Phantom Planet in a long time until I saw this awesome video over at Today's Big Thing, but now I'm curious to hear more. The video is directed by Eric Wareheim and it's really crazy, in the best possible way. Check it out...

Lou Reed - Charley's Girl

I just wanted to post this one for anyone who thinks they may like Reed's music but still isn't sure, this should put you over the top. A sweet little diddy that encompasses everything that's brilliant about his music: catchy tune, off center imagery & that Lou Reed swagger. If you like this tune, definitely pick up Coney Island Baby, it's pretty much perfect.

Jay Reatard on digforfire

Another excellent mini-doc video over at, this time featuring the one band working harder than everyone else to save rock. I'm completely addicted to this website and this band.

Brian Wilson - Back Home (live)

Don't know what show this was for, looks like there's some SNL house players in the background, but can't say for sure. Anyways, here's a nice performance of the great late period Beach Boys tune Back Home (but curiously no Beach Boys are present besides Brian). He loses track of the lyrics at the 1:30 mark, but recovers nicely. Brian!

2 Music Videos From Rob Schrab

Whether it's through his comic book Scud or his directional flourishes on The Sarah Silverman Program, Rob Schrab's brilliant work puts a big smile on my face. Enjoy these two music videos that he directed. The Ween one, as far as I know, was a labor of love, not an official release, and the Death Cab one was for a DVD that they released. But official or not, Schrab's unique touch is all over these things. Everything here is lovingling handmade and endlessly fussed over, which are at least two of the many reasons these videos are so amazing. I dare you not stare at your computer monitor with an unabashed grin! Make that a double dog dare. (I skipped a dare)

Ween - Roses Are Free

Death Cab For Cutie - Crooked Teeth

Fluxblog is absolutely one of the greatest music blogs ever, Matthew Perpetua reeeeeaaaallllly knows his stuff. So as a dedicated reader of that blog, I was surprised to learn today (as a result of the site's technical issues) that Matt also has a pretty great tumblr where he posts his more random musical musings called Fluxtumblr. Check it...

Wilco On Colbert!

Apparently they wrote this song custom for The Colbert Report, but it doesn't sound like some tossed off quickie, it sounds like a fully developed totally sweet Wilco tune. Check it...

"Channel" - The Owls

The Owls "Channel" from Magic Marker on Vimeo.

I know almost nothing about The Owls other than what I just read over at the AMG blog (great great blog by the way). But if this song is any indication of the rest of their music, I'm really excited. This song is really easy on the ears and the video is pretty cool too.
