The Week That Was: Much Bourbon, Much Beyond, All Louisville

Someone take Patrick's keys. Please.

Monday Oct. 7 - Patrick drives to Bourbon and Beyond by way of Columbus and Cincinnati. You just have to hear the excitement in his voice. 
Tuesday Oct. 8 -  On the ground at Bourbon and Beyond, Patrick checks in with Adam Coop for Friday recap and learns about why corn = bourbon. 
Wednesday Oct. 9 -  Backstage at B & B in Louisville, Patrick chats with the amazing Maggie Rose over glasses of, yep, you guessed it, bourbon.
Thursday Oct. 10 - The wonderful Scott Boyken and our new friend Billy McNeill wrap up Saturday action at the festival and peek ahead to Sunday. True music fan perspectives are the best perspectives. 
Friday Oct. 11 - Patrick drives home from Bourbon and Beyond by way of a lot of Welcome Centers and truck stops. You just have to hear the sadness in his voice. 
One of these people is a living legend. The other is Berry Gordy.

On Deck: Mr. Jim Goes to Detroit, New Music and Meet Jesse Dayton 

While Patrick did Louisville, Jim was at an amazing music event in the Motor City. And you're gonna like this Jesse Dayton guy. He's good people, peoples. 

Monday Oct. 14 - Jim goes to Detroit and rubs elbows with the masters.  
Tuesday Oct. 15 - Got around to it a bit late this month, but here's Jim on new music he discovered in September. 
Wednesday Oct. 16 - Patrick steps up to the spot with his September picks. 
Thursday Oct. 17 - Part one of a great chat we had with the amazing singer, composer, badass DJ and all-around cool dude Jesse Dayton.  
Friday Oct. 18 - Part two of the Jesse chat, from backstage at the City Winery DC, a place that seems too nice for our hosts, no offense guys.

The Reason you Read This to the Bottom: New Release Friday Madness!

Pack up the fam and get down to Licorice Pizza before these platters get cold.

Art Alexis - Sun Songs (BMG)

The frontman for ‘90s bouncy alternative band Everclear releases his first solo album. It features a more stripped-down sound. He can’t be everything to everyone.

Babymetal - Metal Galaxy (Cooking Vinyl)

This Japanese band’s third album features hot guitar riffs sometimes set against spacey synths. If it sounds like you’re immersed in an intense video game, well, that’s probably the intent.

Big Thief - Two Hands (4AD)

Wait, didn’t this superb indie band just put out an album in May? Guess they’re not content to just appear on the year-end best-of lists; they want to dominate them.

Bodega - Shiny New Model (What’s Your Rupture)

This New York band practices a poppy version of post-punk that’s so infectious that you just might want to keep this cassette in your Walkman all autumn long.

Elbow - Giants of All Sizes (Polydor/Verve)

On their eighth album, this British proggy alternative band sounds like early Peter Gabriel. The sound is moody but rather uplifting; not an easy trick to pull off.

Kim Gordon - No Home Record (Matador)

It’s been eight years since legendary indie band Sonic Youth fell apart. And so did Gordon’s marriage to Thurston Moore. At last, she has recorded a solo album, and it’s every bit as artsy and angsty as you’d expect.

Starcrawler - Devour You (Rough Trade)

How many times have we heard that rock ’n’ roll is dead? Kids don’t play loud guitars anymore, we are told. On their second album, Los Angeles’ Starcrawler says F you to that.

Wale - Wow … That’s Crazy (Warner)

Known as an expert lyricist, this Washington DC rapper also creates sonicscapes that envelope the listener. Smart, soulful hip-hop — that’s not crazy; that’s Wale.
