Part 2 of my conversation with guests Mike Piantigini and Brad Searles as we discuss the new music we're looking forward to in 2013. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Low, Thee Oh Sees, Mikal Cronin and Ken Stringfellow.

Show notes:

- Recorded at Piantigini Place, Somerville, Mass.

- The Who's Live at Hull sounds a lot like Live at Leeds

- Hearing bands play old favorites vs. new material

- Selling your music for commercial use

- Pete Townshend was a major solo artist in the '80s

- '80s recording techniques have not aged well

- Debating McCartney's solo work

- Kids these days...

- YouTube as music delivery mechanism

- Not just videos, but full albums and lyric videos

- The sad tale of Myspace

- Bandcamp's fan pages

- Brad: Psyched about new LP from Kid Canaveral

- The death of Lovejoy's, a great Austin dive bar

- Alamo Drafthouse rules

- Brad: Upcoming Mark Kozelek and Album Leaf collaboration

- Indie bands love covering the Misfits

- Bands keep touring without original members (Misfits, Dead Kennedys)

- Violent Femmes are reuniting with original lineup at Coachella

- Prog is coming back

- Brad dug Genesis in the Duke/Abacab era

- "Illegal Alien" is a horrible song

- Long-awaited albums that may never come: Dylan at the Movies, The Wrens

- Brad bets My Bloody Valentine won't release new album by time this airs (he loses bet)

- Mike can't stop talking about his trip to SXSW

- The power of chocolate chip cookies

- Labels are running out of classic rock to reissue, turning to alt-rock

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Low - Just Make It Stop

Thee Oh Sees - Minotaur

Mikal Cronin - Apathy

Ken Stringfellow - Doesn't It Remind You of Something
