Blood on the Knobs is a music journal. Sometimes it's a travelogue. And now it's a radio show that can be heard every Tuesday night from 7-9 p.m. (cst) on Substrate Radio (www.substrateradio.com) or on your phone via the Tune In app. It is based in Birmingham, Alabama, but spends time all over the southeast.
The Audiovore’s audio-visual showcase, The Spectra Sonic Sound Sessions, has just released this fantastic video of Through The Sparks performing a brand new track called “Living Rooms” in singer Jody Nelson’s home studio, Alamalibu. Through The Sparks recorded and mixed the audio themselves making for audio experience on par with any of their amazing recordings.
Nelson and bassist Greg Slamen were on my radio show last week. You can listen to it — along with Nelson’s solo acoustic take on the band’s “Statue Scared” below.
Do yourself a favor and check out more of The Audiovore’s Spectra Sonic Souns Sessions HERE. Past guests include Belle Adair and Steelism.
You can hear The Audiovore in his element every Sunday night at 10pm CST on Birmingham Mountain Radio. And, of course, you can listen to Blood On The Knobs every Tuesday at 7pm CST on Substrate Radio.
THIS WEEK: Jody Nelson and Greg Slamen of Through The Sparks talk about the band’s new album “Invisible Kids” and play a song. We’re also treated to a performance and “interview” by a mysterious trio known as Miss Jackson. Good stuff, all around.
Better late than never: Check out this “interview” and performance by enigmatic Birmingham collective, Miss Jackson. They are playing TONIGHT (2.26.14) at Bottletree… So check this out: The song is haunting (think recent, weird PJ Harvey) and and the “interview” is a hoot — the band only responded to my questions in writing.
The full podcast of this episode of Blood on the Knobs (which also features and interview and performance from Through The Sparks) will be up shortly. You can hear past episodes of this and other Substrate Radio programing at www.mixcloud.com/substrateradio
