Episode 91: Justin Trosper (Unwound, Survival Knife, Nocturnal Habits

stream/download

Fall records and making things far away from people. Making leaves as an analog recording right in the middle of the digital revolution. Soundbreaking and process change , digital as 4 track, and recording with none of the people in the same room, live bands merging, skipping the "getting going" phase, numero group reissues as nerd wish fulfillment, revisiting the discography, outsiders looking back with rose colored glasses, the cult of instant reaction, post-hardcore, legacy and just doing it, two ton boa , touring during election2016 and Unwound touring during 9/11, politics in music and the value of the personal, survival knife: wha' happen?, replikants, blade runner remake Brandt on the leaves tour, last Unwound tour as rocky movie and so much more.

songs played:
Nocturnal Habits – Good Grief
Nocturnal Habits – New Skin

Nocturnal Habits – Ecophilia
Unwound – Dragnalus
Unwound – Terminus

Shellac – the End of Radio (Closing Theme)


As always, if you like what you hear... please don't keep it a secret, thx.

Thanks, Conan! Glad to hear Justin Trosper isn't just dabbling after that long hiatus. Sounds like dude is all in on being a prolific artist again, which makes me happy.

That Nocturnal Habits record is great! JT has a knack for writing songs that have an immediate hook or two in them but then also reward you with dense layers upon repeat listens. One of my favorite songwriters, for sure.

p.s. Is it a pain in the ass to get a podcast listed in Google Play Music? Just curious because I use that as my main app for everything except stuff like your show (and the barrage, btw...) which aren't on there.

"I have to use two podcast apps ugh" is probably the lamest first world problem of all time, though, so I am not complaining, just sayin', unless I am the only person who does podcasting this way, might help you reach more people.

Me too! which was pretty blatantly obvious in the episode. But I don't do this show because i'm ambivalent about music.

Well spoken and agreed!
the NH record is almost certainly in my best of 2016, which is what the next episode will be.

I'm not going to lie, I have no idea!
I'm curious though, and certainly willing to look into it.

I use the purchased app "icatcher" for everything which I love.
I absolutely hate the native apple one.

I'll look into it for sure though

Ep92: Protonic Reversal Top 10 Records of 2016

stream/download
itunes
stitcher

It was really hard to get down to 10 for this.
Anybody that says there's no good music out there has rocks in their head.

The list:

1. Beat Drun Juel - suppressor
2. Whores - Gold
3. Nocturnal Habits - New Skin for Old Children
4. Helms Alee - Stillicide
5. The Cell Phones - No
6. Future of the Left - the Peace and Truce of Future of the Left
7. Blind Shake - Celebrate Your Worth
8. Savak - Best of Luck in Future Endeavors
9. The rutabega - unreliable narrator
10. Christian fitness - this taco is not correct

5 songs that are not on the top 10 records of 2016

1. Melvins - Decay of Lying
2. Big Business - Fathers Day
3. Maple Stave - Call Sign Spider
4. Iggy Pop - Paraguay
5. John Congleton & the Nighty Nite - You are Facing the Wrong Way

LET'S COUNT IT DOWN!

10: Christian fitness - this taco is not correct
Avid listeners and fans of the show will probably remember... probably remember? How could you forget. Episode 89 with Falco, making a record breaking 4th apperance on protonic, this is a great record. I find that a lot of people don't know it so much. It's all pretty much Falco, Jack from Future of the Left, Mclusky plays drums. It's one of the best records that came out this year, that people haven't paid that much attention that like this kind of music.
Reggie Has Asbestos Training

9. The rutabega - unreliable narrator
This is their second record, the Unreliable Narrator, a little less epic than Brothers The Lights Don't Work which has been their classic go-to, but the songs are as solid as can be, and very cool. I think you will appreciate it very much, if you haven't heard it... you really need to. I'm playing one of the lesser known ones here. There is a very specific thing, there's emotions! there's feelings! it's not just noise all the time. You can find it at Comedy Minus One, they are good people, making good music from South Bend Indiana. I happened to pick the one that is the darkest most emotional journey on the record, that's how we do at Protonic Reversal.
I dig this one, this is the moody closer. I've Been the Armour
Unreliable Narrator by the rutabega

Also find them at Comedy Minus One
Josh and Garth appeared on the show all the way back in episode 33!

8. Savak - Best of Luck in Future Endeavors
This is a supergroup of sorts, members of Obits and Virgin Islands. I quite like it, I don't know exactly what I was expecting but it's a really good hot rocking good time. Episode 84 featured Sohrab of Savak, Obits, Edsel. This record came out early in the year, and I feel like it made a big impact with folks, but I feel like people aren't giving it the deference it deserves. There's an almost new wave-y element to it that i'm really into, but this is some serious rock music at the same time.

Also available on Comedy Minus One

phpBB [media]


7. Blind Shake - Celebrate Your Worth
One of the best bands loosely affiliated with the new garage rock "movement", they are on their own thing, their own trip. The Blind Shake! Possibly my favorite since Seriousness. Just excellent stuff all around. This one is on Goner.
This one is a little less noisy, and a little more DEVO from Pluto.

Celebrate Your Worth by The Blind Shake

6. Future of the Left - the Peace and Truce of Future of the Left
I feel like the last few Future of the Left records are divisive for some reason, people seem to be really into them or not into them at all. And they don't give them a chance. They dont' give it a chance. This is a band that keeps getting better, I frankly like them better than mclusky. Which is heretical for a lot of folks and I don't care. It's a busy world, out there. You should make time for this one.

Again Episode 89 for Falco's last appearance


5. The Cell Phones - No
Believe it or not, I find this band a little hard to describe. Truth told, they sound like themselves, but when pressed I say they sound like Tina Turner fronting NoMeansNo, Freddie Mercury fronting DFA1979, Sharon Jones (of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings) fronting the Minutemen, none of that makes much sense, but it gets you to a starting point. The record is called NO, two words. NO. How do you talk about something like this without just saying: "this kicks ass, shut up stupid, and listen!". It sounds like it's from another planet, but I mean that as a compliment!
No by The Cell Phones

4. Helms Alee - Stillicide
Brace Yourself.
Great band, one of those bands that are just difficult to describe but are top to bottom wonderful. A unique voice in heavy music, melodic, epic, adventerous.
Go find them at Sargent House

Stillicide by Helms Alee

3. Nocturnal Habits - New Skin for Old Children
This is Justin Trosper and Sara from Unwound, with some Two Ton Boa action in there as well. It's amazing, I love this record, i've listened to it lots. One of the deeper cuts on this one. Lush as hell and great stuff. Soothing in it's way.
An alternate universe sequel to Leaves Turn Inside you by Unwound.

Of course Justin Trosper was also on last episode.

New Skin For Old Children by Nocturnal Habits

2. Whores - Gold

Two time guest on the show. Last appearance was episode 90. This is off the record Gold. It's a bomber. They do a thing that is heavy and noisy, kind of reminds me of KARP-esque things. It's really good. You can also get the back catalog here. Also worthy! They are receiving a lot of attention right now and it's a very cool, gravity defying thing.

phpBB [media]


1. Beat Drun Juel - suppressor
You probably don't know it, and that's ok. A Chicago band. I slept on listening to this for way too long because I could not remember the name. Which really isn't that difficult. Once you get it, it's fine... but you have to get it. This is fucking awesome. It's PJ Harvey, it's noiserock, it's all those things... and it's own thing.


So those are the top 10 records of the years.
I also am tossing in top 5 songs that were not on those records.

1. Melvins - Decay of Lying
phpBB [media]

Stiff competition this year, one of the two Melvins record that came out this year. Basses Loaded, the other being Mike and the Melvins with Mike Kunka of godheadSilo. Basses loaded has a bunch of different bass players on it, and it's really cool. The lead off track is one of my favorite Melvins songs in awhile, it's the big Alice Cooper side of what they do, and I like it.

2. Big Business - Fathers Day
phpBB [media]

Command Your Weather by Big Business</iframe>
They're back as a two piece with a kickass record. It's got riffs, if you know... you're into that kind of thing. The record is called Command Your Weather.

3. Maple Stave - Call Sign Spider
V by Maple StaveI had this record for awhile, listened to it and enjoyed it. But this song is the business. From the incredibly politically contentious state of North Carolina. Last song on the record, I like them a lot. Don't know why it took me so long, frankly. This one gets real close to emo, real close to something i'm not comfortable with at all, but stays on the right side.

4. Iggy Pop - Paraguay
phpBB [media]

One that might actually be on a few lists outside of the Nerd-o-verse. Post-pop Depression, it's a good good record. I liked it a lot, I didn't top 10 like it though, I think it has some weak spots and some of lyrics kind of blow. One of my favorite rock 'n roll people of all time. But it's true, certainly my favorite Iggy Pop record in years and years though. Kind of his goodbye record, it's interesting to think of there not being an Iggy Pop around anymore making music. I think it's kind of awesome that it's in the last song lyrically too.
Oh! Do yourself the favor and follow Iggy Pop on instagram to see him hanging out with his bird, it's amazing.

5. John Congleton & the Nighty Nite - You are Facing the Wrong Way
phpBB [media]

FEEL THOSE CHIMES SUCKA! I love this record, but there are only so many slots. I listen to this one a lot actually. Famed producer John Congleton and ex-pAperchAse



Christian Fitness - Reggie has Asbestos Training
the rutabega - I've Been the Armor
SAVAK - Alive in Shadows
The Blind Shake - Apostle Island
Future of the Left - Running All Over the Wicket
The Cell Phones - You Make Me Say No
Helms Alee - Tit to Toe
Nocturnal Habits - New Skin
Whores - I See You Are Also Wearing A Black T-Shirt
Beat Drun Juel - Hugger

John Congleton & the Nighty Nite - You Are Facing the Wrong Way
Iggy Pop - Paraguay
Maple Stave - Call Station Spider
Big Business - Father's Day
Melvins - Decay of Lying

The Blind Shake - Reasonable World

Shellac - The End of Radio (Closing Theme)


Oh we're also on the google play thing now I think...

ep 95 of Protonic Reversal features Brian Pennington of the incredible Lardo and many other awesome bands, such as Megamaul, Radiant Republic, etc. Josh Davis joins as my cohost and we talk to the versatile multi-instrumentalist about striking a chord with Lardo beyond friend rock, the intergal usage of the Bit Commander pedal to the Lardo “sound”, playing with the murderer’s row of bands at All Tomorrow’s Impeachments, why Lardo is really 70s dumb riff rock (seriously?!), motivation and inspiration, what record labels mean in 2017 and so much more.

Music played:
Arcwelder – What Did You Call It That For?
Lardo – Nothing
Lardo – Watch Him (Watch Her)
Lardo – Swimmer

I laughed out loud a bunch-- they sent me running for more than one youtube video/wiki page.
But they also told some truths that made me introspective about decision-making, as it pertains to what activities you focus on while not knowing what bets are going to pay off in a very long game. Good stuff.

Protonic Reversal - Episode 97: Mike Blaha (The Blind Shake​, BLAHA​, Shadow in the Cracks​)

On this episode, Conan and Josh have a chat with Mike Blaha of the Blind Shake and countless variations thereupon! Topics include, but are not limited to:

-collaborations and being open
-subbing in bands mid-tour
-Blind Shake vs. solo writing
-air-drumming auditions
-Chipotle!
-the Blaha health regimen
-surfin' with John Reis
-working through new songs on the road
-"Play 'Hurrican!'"
-acoustic vs. electric
-"I watch Netflix as much as the next guy"
-expressing more emotion
-attempting to book a show before this podcast ends
-living in small boxes
-joining Castle Face Records without changing the band's sound
-the equal desire for safety and adventure
-keeping ears open to young bands
-Iowa
-the conceptual Blind Shake

Then Mike had to go load out for his solo show, so we ended up talking not exactly about Twin Peaks (although there are a few spoilers if you haven't watched through episode 8 yet) but more about fandom and experiencing it real-time.

Ep098: Eugene Robinson (Oxbow, Sal Mineo, Whipping Boy)

What if Yella from NWA sang the hit of Yellow the band (of "Oh YEAAAAAAH!" fame), that and a few other things before Conan and Josh dive right into the remarkable Eugene Robinson and his many bands, projects, sojourns and creative exploits. Eugene conducts himself with alacrity and poise and a good time is had by all!

-spending 12 hours in France and playing a show
-not playing where you oughtn't
-Advocating the encyclopedia of the voice.
-Singing what your soul calls out
-Old HC fellas that don't really "get" Oxbow.
-Charating a musical course with no reference points
-Shit talkers being good people to have around / speaking honestly
-Getting hit on by one's idols.
-the equivalent of automatic writing.
-martial arts.
-"Hey Frenchy, put the chainsaw down"
- Compartmentalizing "Fight"
-Writers vs. People who can write.
-To Arms, two legs and the magic of subtlety.
-Whatever happened to Dukowski
-Cross-Cultural experience vs cross-class experience.
-Where the stories come from
