    The iconic, unmistakable and mighty Erica Dunn of Mod Con and TFS stops in to chat many things musical, Covid and what not. The existential whiplash of hitting it hard on the road and playing music to the dead stop of the pandemic. Thrill to the brand new Mod Con single Ammo (and subsequent album!) and hear a bit about the tantalizingly mysterious new TFS album DEEP STATES. The path to playing music FOR REAL, playing live shows again, the origins of Palm Springs. What makes You Let My Tyres Down such a unique and cool song. Layers and layers, space in Mod Con and maximalism in TFS… all that and more, more, more!

    Dana’s band Wavebreaker is an intersectional rock band centering the needs and lived experiences of girls, women, and femmes of color. A passionate advocate for progressive politics, Wavebreaker is explicitly political, pointed and ready to rock in the name of freedom and equality. Enter: Interdependence. Formed from the excellent Batwings Catwings and featuring members of Turbo Lightning at the Mae-shi, listen in as Dana talks about the overall game plan and strategy of walking the walk politically while still making great tunes, standing rock, rocking while being a female POC, skating and lots more.

    One of Conan’s favorite front people in music returns to Protonic Reversal. The incredible and inimitable Lindsey Charles of The Cell Phones. Direct and honest lyricism, powerful presentation and the incongruity of a spazzy band with great pop hooks. Lesley Gore is discussed, Halloween albums, and a little bit of each one of the the three full lengths this uncompromising and badass band has released. INCLUDING 2020’s Best 20 of 2020 NUMBER ONE RECORD, Battery Lower. Song by song!

    Lindsey Charles!

    Exhalants are a great band from Texas. 2020’s ATONEMENT was on the Protonic Reversal Top 20 of 2020. We do a SONG BY SONG BREAKDOWN of that very record (RICHARD! LAKE SONG)… as well as a roundup of Exhalants live experiences, the first record, split with Pinko, the value of a live record during a pandemic that people cannot experience live music. Gentrification, local band bills and lots, lots more.

    The Gary have a new one out called FALLOW. Their first with drummer Anthony Castaneda. The long running Texas rockers have a unique sound and a unique voice. Check out bass player and singer Dave Norwood talk about taking the leap towards singing *AND* playing, what starts in the head vs. how the song turns out. Literary catnip. Chub, dust bowl, taprooms, “the Well(tm)”, National Parks, Valhalla! Fair Weatherer! Call The Dogs! All that stuff and lots, lots more. Including a song by song breakdown of the latest near the end. The Gary is a unique and iconically American band. It’s about dang time Dave was on.

    Rye has an amazing arc! From sweaty basement post-hardcore/noise rock rippers, to anthemic big rock power houses. Much of this is outlined in the excellent documentary “Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck 5“, but listen in as Dave talks about everything from splits with KARP and the LAST SHOW at Princeton, John Sherman… wasted, touring with Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters all the way to hobnobbing with the rock ‘n roll elite and going for the brass ring. Through it all: the friendship is the through line. Along with some killer riffs. And stay tuned for a very revealing protonic exclusive!
