Discovering the new indie & alternative pop rock music.
Our “Left Of The Dial” podcast features American bands from the more radio-friendly side of the underground rock dial in the mid-to-late 1980s. You’ll remember many of these bands from CMJ playlists of old. On this episode, we’ll listen to Violent Femmes (pictured), Government Issue, Dinosaur Jr. Beat Rodeo, The Sneetches, R.E.M., The Replacements, Sidewinders, The Leaving Trains, Game Theory, The Crucifucks, and X.
On this episode of Moody Fuckers, we say goodbye to Chris Cornell (pictured), who passed away sometime this morning (18.05.2017). The man had such a unique voice, especially in the early days of Soundgarden when he would caterwaul atop his band’s a-melodic grunge. We’ll also hear from Low, Ministry, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Japan, Nick Cave, Slint, and others.
Lost Highway is our show that explores the influence of roots rock, country, folk, and Americana on the 1980s and early ’90s underground rock scene.
