From the Vaults: Modcast #104 Your Big Sister Said You Ain't Never Been Cool

Once more into the vault my friends, once more into the vault. Step back in time, to a time when the modcast was young and fresh ... well at least fresh. Take a giant step outside your current listening constraints and journey with me all the way back to the fall of 2008. I've opened up the vaults and dusted off a classic modcast that I think you'll enjoy. Again.

Welcome to

Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World

What a time it's been gettin' the latest show produced and broadcast. I've been having weird technical problems that just cropped up recently. Problems that make the show sound amateurish and not at all polished. So, picked up a new mic and mini-mixer specifically for podcasting, and dammit all if I can't get it to work with my system. All to say that I hope this show is listenable because the music surely is.

This week's show is a little longer than usual but it's worth it. Got a great big strong soul vibe going. With the new soul revival in full swing it seems there's always new --and old-- stuff to discover and enjoy. Got a great live track from JTQ, some new stuff from the Upper 5th and Buttonup among other things -- such as Lucky Soul, who is fast becoming one of my favorites. One other especially nice treat here is the new track by Adrian Holder, former front man for The Moment. He's putting together a new album and if it's anything like what you can get a taste of on his Myspace page then it will be one hell of a release. Mod on, kids, mod on.

Let me know how I'm doing and what you think. E-mail me at rob@mistersuave.com.
