Razorcake Podcast #626 with Adel Souto, The South Florida Edition

I’ve lived all over the U.S., but I’ve always wound up returning to south Florida. Not sure if it’s the weather, the beaches, where all my oldest friends are, or just my luck, but here I am again – like it, or not. Well, if you can’t fight them, join them, and what better way to join them, than be part of the music scene? I thought I’d try to get as many outsiders involved in the south Florida music scene too, and there’s no better way to introduce you to it, than the Razorcake Podcast.

Here is over an hour’s worth of today’s best (and some of days gone by), from Miami to West Palm Beach, and Coral Gables to Cape Coral. We’ll go from punk to funk, and goth to grind. Twenty-five tracks that will let the listener in on what is happening here on Florida’s southern tip.

Hopefully, this will melt some of that snow you might be trapped under.
Enjoy your listening!

Razorcake Podcast #623 with Mike Fournier

School starts up again tomorrow. We spent our entire break working on the new spot, scraping wallpaper and picking colors and painting and cleaning and figuring out where everything will go. Choice is exhilarating; choice is exhausting. If you dig any of this stuff here, mostly new, choose to support the bands directly – they’ll appreciate it.

Razorcake Podcast #621 with Johnny and Elwood

The acoustic guitar is dangerous thing. Used correctly, in the hands of Woody Guthrie or Pete Seeger, it could provide the perfect accompaniment to a song of the people. In the hands of some “hey there Delilah” dickhead it can make you want to vomit out of your ears. If you’re going to make acoustic punk music the songs need to have something really special.

The final track on this podcast, “Magic” by Beans On Toast has been listened to a lot in our house recently. It takes me right back to the day Elwood was born. All the fear, the uselessness and the strange joy that being a Dad at the birth of a child brings. I remember sitting next to my wife as she, with the doctors and midwifes, worked so hard to safely bring Elwood into the world. Feeling utterly overwhelmed by the whole situation, wearing hair covers on my feet because I had no idea how to dress for surgery. Being alone in a room with my new born son, whilst my wife was being attended to, I had no idea how to feel. Until I saw him in the arms of my wife it didn’t seem real, like he wasn’t my child but I was looking after him. When I saw them together it became clear that we’re a family now.

If your acoustic track can elicit that kind of response in a listener then you’re doing things right. If not, you need to lift your game buddy.
