April Podcast: Rock the Garden lineup prediction secrets, "Accidental Racist," and more


Today marks the last day of April, and that's good news for all you audiophiles out there. Why is that, you ask? Because we just thawed out round two of the Gimme Noise music podcast, that's why.

This new experiment of ours is still new enough that we don't even have a decent set of press photos, but after we heard some positive noise regarding our first go-around, we just couldn't wait to serve up a second helping. For this month's episode, Reed and I discuss Rock the Garden, City Pages' Best Of the Twin Cities issue, the much-maligned Brad Paisley and LL Cool J duet "Accidental Racist," and Songs for Slim, the new Replacements EP.

Introducing the Gimme Noise Music Podcast

Here's a surprise to ease you out of this warm and sunny Friday. The very first Gimme Noise Podcast is live! Recorded in our satellite "studio" in Seward, this represents a collection of recent topics, both locally and at large, that we -- myself and music editor Reed Fischer -- wanted to discuss further.

In this 20-minute installment, we talk about the new Har Mar Superstar song, Alan Sparhawk's artistic rise, the recent SXSW Music Festival in Austin, and City Pages' own 10 Thousand Sounds Festival. Check it out below the break.
