YTAA Book Discussion This Week: Jeff Tweedy’s ‘Let’s Go (So we can get back)

Jeff Tweedy Book

Our last on-air book discussion of 2018 focuses on Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) by Wilco frontman and Uncle Tupelo co-founder Jeff Tweedy. Guests in the studio include Jeremy Siegrist of The Typical Johnsons and musician and supermusicfan Mandy Jewell who will share their ideas about the book. This interesting book covers Tweedy’s life experiences, personal biography and his work in Uncle Tupelo and Wilco.

If you have comments and thoughts about the book, feel free to share those with us in the discussion section of the event page or email us at drjytaa@gmail.com. We will also open the phone line during the show so that those listening can join in on the conversation as well.

As always you can listen along online at WUDR.udayton.edu OR 99.5 & 98.1fm in Dayton, Ohio from 3-6pm Tuesday, December 18th!

Novena on YTAA

On October 23, 2018 an exciting band Novena joined us in the studio! Jennifer Taylor and Emma Lee Woodruff bring a wealth of experience to the songs that they play. Novena play some powerful folk rock with a few unexpected covers. If you have a chance to see them, we highly recommend that you take this musical journey.

Goodnight Goodnight

Goodnight Goodnight 1In a weekend of terrific music from local bands and musicians playing Dayton Music Festival around town, indie electronic shoegaze dynamo Goodnight Goodnight performed at Southpark Tavern on Saturday night. Playing several stellar tracks from their latest record Control, a cover of Bat for Lashes ‘Laura’ and a new song that the crowd much appreciated, this was a great show!

Goodnight Goodnight has been on a regional tour and the band has never sounded as tight and well, controlled as they did this past weekend. It is better to refer to the songs as compositions rather than songs because of the significant textures that go into the sonic soundscapes they create. Todd Herbert on keyboards and effects creates rhythms, melodies and fills that draw comparisons to Depeche Mode and New Order. Gary Thornton’s guitar playing and tone remind one of early Cure. Larry Evans on bass guitar adds exciting dimension to the songs. Amanda Thornton’s vocal are both emotionally powerful and light and ethereal all at once.

If you get an opportunity to see them, which we highly recommend, It will be a goodnight indeed.
