EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 042: This Must Be Deep...(Pt. 2)

We continue last week's adventure this week.  Plumbing the depths of meaning itself to discern wether or not it exists.  Or whatever.  (Really I just wanted to play some cool songs.  Because that means something to me.  Is that enough for it to actually mean something?  Ah, who cares?  Let's jam.)

1. "Miles Beyond" Mahavishnu Orchestra
2. "Have You Got It In You?" Imogen Heap
3. "Summer Skin" Death Cab For Cutie
4. "Sea Legs" Run The Jewels
5. "The Summoning" Grip INC.
6."Young Man" Living Colour
7. "Albert Flasher" The Guess Who
8. "Look Around" John Abercrombie
9. "Fuk Tha World" 2Pac
10. "In The Presence Of My Enemies" Machine Head
11. "Snow Coast" Yoshihiro Sawazaki

Here is part one if you missed it:

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 041: This Must Be Deep...(Pt. 1)

I’ve never really done this before, but I’ve made a lot of music mixes over the years, taking great care to get the track order and the transitions JUUUSST right.  So I’m going to take one of my last ones (that creative itch has since been scratched by doing this very program; that’s like a mix a week) and split it up into two episodes.

The title comes from something Gil Scott-Heron said so I put that monologue at the beginning of the episode (that, and it’s only about a 100 min. mix).  I always made my mixes with the hope that someday someone somewhere would hear them, and I could share this music.  So enjoy!

1. "This Must Be Deep / Billy Green Is Dead" Gil-Scott Heron
2. "Coming For You" Twelve Foot Ninja
3. "Lose Face" The Fixx
4. "Cycle" Yoko Kanno
5. "Kansas City Milkman" Level 42
6. "Drifting In Space" Captain Beyond
7. "Lost Not Forgotten" Dream Theater
8. "Tell Your Heart Heads Up" Mute…

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 040 - Aren't Circles So Interesting?

Tonight was a bit random, hence the title (which someone in the store said as I was wrapping up).  Sit back, relax and let the universe take you where it wants to go...(after those first two, anyway; those go hard).

1. “Through The Never” Metallica
2. “American Horror Story” Tech N9ne (feat. Ces Cru)
3. “Drink The Water” Eisley
4. “Renaissance” Jean-Luc Ponty
5. “Red Barchetta” Rush
6. “In The Jailhouse Now” Jimmie Rodgers
7. “Early Mornin’ Stoned Pimp” Kid Rock (feat. Joe C. & Tino)
8. “Uh Uh” Ursula Rucker
9. “Truk” Grinspoon
10. “Fire Garden Suite” Steve Vai

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 039: Request Line IX

Another request show is in the books, and it's as eclectic as ever.  This week, things are decidedly more upbeat (with two notable exceptions), keeping a positive vibe through most of the show.  I dig that.  Stay young, go dancing and all that.

If you would like to hear me play a song (and it doesn't necessarily have to wait for a request episode), hit me up on Twitter @NicholasNutter or post a suggestion in the comments section of this here blog.  As you can hear, I will play practically anything.  (I think I draw the line at NeoNazi music, but I would totally play "Nazi Punks Fuck Off".)

1. "I Got You (I Feel Good)" James Brown
2. "Psychotherapy" (Live) Melanie
3. "Get Outside" Robert Palmer
4. "Erase / Rewind" The Cardigans
5. "We Belong" Pat Benatar
6. "If You Want To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life" Jimmy Soul
7. "Forever Young" Alphaville
8. "Ninja Rap (Go Ninja Go)" Vanilla Ice

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 038 / Life: Welcome To Reality / Friar Otto's Back Porch

So...Funny story. I was supposed to be a guest on Life: Welcome To Reality on Friday night, but the host wasn't there, and there was another guest. So I wound up hosting the thing. Then another guy who has a show on Thursdays wandered in and we talked for an hour, then some other stuff happened, and I stayed for two more hours and wound up playing drums on a piano bench while this guy played guitar and told stories. Links below to both of those episodes.

Tentative plan is to be on Life: Welcome To Reality on June 10th.  For now, enjoy last night's vaguely Summer-centric playlist:

1. "Salt" The Atomic Spins
2. "19-2000" Gorillaz
3. "Set To Fail" Lamb Of God
4. "Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)" Incubus
5. "Day At The Dog Races" Little Feat
6. "Gimme Some More" Busta Rhymes
7. "Small Deadly Space" Fight
8. "Starchild" Level 42
9. "Pigsblood And Chalk" Fila Brazillia
10. "…
