    Nuggets 245 – Justified 

    Nuggets 245 - Justified

    A few months back I went through a ‘Justified’ phase. I watched all 4 series of this modern take on a western. While the lead actor – Timothy Olyphant  – is a bit bland, the show is well written and has excellent character actors. I particularly enjoy Walton Goggins who plays the charismatic villain Boyd Crowder.

    If you haven’t caught up with the show it has a familiar plot; small town kid makes good in the big city and is then sent back to his hometown. In Justified home is Harlan Kentucky and the small town boy done good is Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Givens deals with villains who are usually his former school mates.

    Flush with enthusiasm I put together this mix. In my mind’s eye the songs relate to characters with the theme song being track one. I did consider editing down a video with the characters and scenes that I was thinking of, but it didn’t happen. I have moved on and I am now fascinated by Äkta människor, a stylish Swedish Sci-fi about robots living among humans. Yep, short attention span.

    Anywayz, I ended up with a most enjoyable mix. I will add some videos for the songs later.

      Apparently an English version of Real Humans is coming out soon too…

      Sorry to report but Elmore Leonard, the writer, has died. His characters were used in Justified and he was a producer on the show. His stories were turned into films including Get Shorty.

      Erin, I shudder to think what the remake of Real Humans will look like. It has a particular Scandinavian world view that I don’t see translating well. There are, for instance, salacious tendencies that if magnified would make it unwatchable.

    Nuggets 244 – LoFi 

     Nuggets 244 - LoFi

    Todays words are rough, grungy, unfinished and unsettling.

    This mix combines some bands that are new to me with some of the usual suspects.

    That’s Naomi Punk on the cover and there’s four tracks in the mix to savour.

    Sez noisey.vice.com

    Born out of the DIY grunge/punk scene in Seattle/Olympia Washington, Naomi Punk channels the sound of their punk ancestry through warped and strident guitars, beautifully jarring hooks, and heavy tribal drums. It’s hard to wrap your head around it all, but it’s guaranteed to blast your skull apart.

    The trio–comprised of Travis Benjamin Coster, Neil Gregorson, and Nicolas Luempert–are childhood friends who grew up just outside Seattle. Coster is currently living in Seattle, making music and art, and Gregorson and Luempert are studying music/art at Evergreen State College in Olympia. After playing in several independent projects (U, Masters and Johnson, Seahouse) they formed Naomi Punk.

    Their first record, The Feeling was released in April 2012 on Vancouver’s Couple Skate Records, and re-released by Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks in October 2012. The Feeling is one of the year’s most original in the punk/DIY/best-new-band-on-the-planet category.

    We were fortunate to have Naomi Punk lay down a killer session just before they played a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Calvin Love and Mac DeMarco, and then we saw them again at the Savannah Stopover Festival in Savannah and they blew our minds completely apart.

    Watch Naomi Punk perform “The Spell” and”Burned Body” off The Feeling as well as a new song, “Television Man,” [below].

    The mix starts off with Yo La Tengo from their latest album, Fade. Its good to see them rocking on – 30 years of making music! There’s also tracks from the new Deerhunter album – Monomania – which I am still absorbing.

    Is it me or does the P.S. Eliot track sound like the Banana Splits intro? Surely not, Katie Crutchfield and her sister wouldn’t even have been born when the series was playing…

    Almost all the tracks are up so those blessed with a web browser that speaks Flash, enjoy.
