Tales From The Drop Box Episode 136 (2019-03)


Thought I would tee up a fresh episode as I have stockpiled some tracks over the past several weeks to give you a winter lift (particularly if you live in the midsection of the US). You are getting this episode before the Super Bowl and a mere 1 day after Episode 135 so you will have two new episodes to listen to this weekend! Tales From The Drop Box Episode 136 is still a mix of new and old tracks and has a couple of familiar artists thrown in for fun. One of those artists is Bob Mould who, as the leader of Husker Du and Sugar, was amazing in those bands, and still is rocking on his latest and 13th solo LP, Sunshine Rock. What is completely unexpected is that this new record is filled with . . . sunny songs . . you know, happy even. Sunshine Rock is a different music experience if you are a Bob Mould fan. Although the album is released next week (February 8) you get to hear some of it early! Also of interest in this episode is the new FIDLAR album. You will not believe where this band’s sound is now. It looks like they discovered the Beastie Boys records and found out how great that band was. The new record is leaps and bounds different, unexpected, and completely lovable. Tales From The Drop Box Episode 136 also has a few more surprises in store for you….

Here is what you’ll find in Episode #136:

  1. T-Rextasy – “Girl, Friend” (Prehysteria)
  2. Bob Mould – “I Fought” (Sunshine Rock)
  3. FIDLAR – “Alcohol” (Almost Free)
  4. Axis: Sova – “New Disguise” (Shampoo You)
  5. The High Divers – “Making Me Want You” (Chicora)

  7. Singing Lungs – “Flow” (Groan)
  8. Makari – “No Longer” (Hyperreal)
  9. Lusts – “True Romance” (Call Of The Void)
  10. Matt Nathanson – “Gimme Your Love” (Sings His Sad Heart)
  11. Buttertones – “Stray Dog Strut” (Stray Dog Strut 8”)
  12. 3upfront – “Heritage” (Puppets and Psychiatrists)
  13. Press Club – “My Body’s Changing” (Late Teens)
  14. The Specials – “It’s You” (Guilty ‘til Proved Innocent)
  15. Dani Bell and the Tarantists – “Driving Me Crazy” (Wide Eyed)

Shakin’ your tail raisin’ some hell rollin’ with the pack on the wrong track into the sail . . . I’ve been swimming in shallow water trying to forget it all I’ve been staring at walls for hours trying to be better off gimme your love
