Episode 12: Neko Case

March 17th, 2020

Episode 12: Neko Case is the singer everybody loves to love. For over 20 years she has delighted listeners with her alt-country-ish-but-oh-so-much-more repertoire, both solo and with indie darlings The New Pornographers. In this episode of Reselect, Dave, Eric, and Sarah fawn all over Ms. Case, specifically for her solo work, and make the case (pun intended) for her as one of the best songwriters going (you thought that was going to say "singers" -- well yes, that too). Albums covered include almost everything from 1997's The Virginian up through 2013's mouthful of a title, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. [Apologies to fans of 2009's Middle Cyclone: it was skipped for time's sake only.]

NOTE: This episode was recorded well before (and the intro not long before) the coronavirus issues currently affecting the world in terrible ways, hence the lack of any mention therein. Our best wishes go out to all of you, for whatever way you may be affected: stay healthy and hang in there!

Episode 11: The Beths, “Future Me Hates Me” (Live and on Album)

March 1st, 2020

Episode 11: The Beths are a great indie pop band hailing from New Zealand, and last August they made a tour stop in Seattle. This coincided with a visit from Dave's friends Judy and Margaret, flying over from the East Coast to take part in "Beat the Blerch," an annual race/walk featuring donuts and cake and couches that is put on by Matthew Inman, creator of The Oatmeal (the online comic strip). In this Very Special Episode of Reselect, Dave chats with Judy and Margaret about The Beths' show that we saw together, and the band's most-recent album, Future Me Hates Me – not to mention food and chants, among other things
