Most people first heard of Asher Gamedze when he contributed drums to Angel Bat Dawid's acclaimed 2019 release The Oracle. Now, the South African drummer is back, this time as bandleader, crafting a powerful statement on colonialism and his country's history with his debut album Dialectic Soul, a record many have called the best release of 2020. In 1976 the ten members of soul/funk band The Edge of Darkness had one thing in common besides their love of music: They were all in prison. Incarceration couldn't stop their love of music, and in 1976 they recorded Eyes Of Love at Powhatan Correctional Facility just outside of Richmond, Virginia. We're taking a look back at that record's origins and the triumph of the spirit that it's joyful songs represent. PLUS: Guitarist Bill Frisell has toured for years with drummer Rudy Royston and bassist Thomas Morgan but his new record Valentine (out now on Blue Note Records) is the first time they've recorded an album together. We're spinning a gorgeous track from this stunning document of friendship and communication. Love this show? Let us know by supporting us. Quick. Easy.

Ripley Johnson’s Rose City Band project started as an act of wish fulfillment. One of the creative minds behind Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo just wanted to “start a country-rock band so I can retire and just play down at the pub every Thursday night during happy hour.” The resulting first album in 2019 was a hazy stroll through the morning dew of a not yet technicolor world. With hints of psychedelia and twang, it was a peak at the source of a style of music before it heads further out into the cosmos. One year later, Johnson is back with Summerlong, an album that echoes Rose City Band’s quiet beginnings but imbues its primal sound with brightness and warmth that is worthy of its title. Brokedown Pod’s Jonathan Hart joins us to discuss this latest chapter in Ripley Johnson’s wild trip across the universe. PLUS! New music from Melbourne, Australia’s Bananagun!Love this show?

As it was in 2017, Aaron Abernathy's Dialogue is a call to resistance and revolution. Revolution for people of color. Revolution for marginalized and oppressed communities here in America. Revolution that is is now playing out in the streets across our nation. In solidarity with those protests and, more importantly, to not just celebrate the art of people of color but make space for their voices and stories, we've "remixed" our 2017 conversation with "Ab" about the creation of Dialogue, the state of existing while black, and more. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/discologist.

In 1985 Norway’s A-Ha conquered the airwaves with their debut album Hunting High And Low, and its groundbreaking video for the single “Take On Me.” One year later, they released Scoundrel Days — a darker, and in many ways more innovative, record — which charted here in America but was quickly forgotten even as the band's popularity continued to explode throughout the rest of the world. Was it a simple case of the dreaded sophomore slump or something else?

Metal band Elder is revered by their fans but has always existed just outside the mainstream. With the release of their new LP Omens, their moment in the spotlight may have finally arrived.Fusing the massive riffs that they're known for with prog keyboards and a seemingly endless imagination for melody, the newly invigorated quartet has crafted an album that isn't just a high point of the band's career, but one that puts them in the prog/psych pantheon alongside bands like Rush, Yes, and Pink Floyd.Tune in as we explore "dad metal," head-trips, and how a long time favorite has become an all-time-great on an all-new episode of Discologist.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/discologist.

For his 18th album (and second in as many years) Damien Jurado is moving on from the stripped down rawness of 2019’s In The Shape Of A Storm, but losing none of the power inherent to his songs. What’s New, Tomboy? finds the venerable songwriter exploring the power of love for things and people both present and lost, and proves yet again that Jurado’s songs/words are one of our most vital conduits to understanding our humanity in this modern world. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/discologist.

2017’s Semper Femina found Laura Marling examining the power of femininity and feminism in the modern age and was a breakout hit of that year. On her new LP, Song For Our Daughter, Marling continues that journey of discovery, exploring the tolls romantic relationships (and their dissolution) can have on women in today’s unrelenting patriarchy. Over ten songs, Marling firmly establishes herself as one of the songwriting giants and sets yet another high-water mark for her career. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/discologist.

Bursting at the seams with certified gold from up-and-comers INXS, The Smiths, Echo and The Bunnymen, and an instant classic from Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark, the soundtrack to 1986’s Pretty In Pink spoke to a generation of under-the-radar music fans as much as it did to the themes of the John Hughes-produced film that it was curated for. On an all-new episode of Discologist, special guest Rick Ivy heads back to High School with us to discuss the history of this landmark album, how music helps us cope, and why the ‘80s was ground-zero for these high-profile "mixtapes" that have stuck with us long after the pains of youth have faded into distant memory. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/discologist.

Jazz has long been one of the most potent musical languages that we have, and on their second album, Irreversible Entanglements are wielding it like a righteous sword. Who Sent You explores injustice and resistance with cacophonous horns, warped bass-lines, and the barely-contained rage of poet Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother). The album's greatest triumph though, lies in the revelation that there can be exaltation in struggle and grace to be found in our common humanity if we're willing to receive it. Join us on an all-new episode of Discolgist as we dig into one of the most important albums of 2020 from one of the fiercest jazz outfits in history. We’re part of the Osiris podcast network.
