Episode 23 - Adam Measel (of DOMMEL MOSEL)

He's a dommel good singer and a songwriter with the mosel tunes around. Adam Measel is the man within Dommel Mosel, the Birmingham pop "sadboy" group that brings morose quips to the jangly center of our collective heart. We met at a secret spot to talk on Memorial Day and I bring that convo to you. He recorded two original songs and we collaborated on a third for the moment's sake. 

Dommel Mosel (the band) performed as part of Avondale Fight Club 2: The Altercation on June 3rd, presented by Birmingham comedian Chris Ivey and featuring national Unbookable punk comic, JT Habersaat. 

The comedy gave way to Spicy Food Fight Club and the music for the evening: Hurl Yeah and Johnny Rock n Roll, two bands that are coming in our future together. You can hear Hurl Yeah's on Episode 19 with Neeta Burger, and this episode is the internet premiere of Johnny Rock N Roll. Enjoy these garage recordings with the promise of fidelic futures. Watch these folks.

Finally, the Baltimore enigma MEMS return to the show with a track from their album "All Mems Go to Heaven." Find them here: https://soundcloud.com/memsbaltimore

Episode 22 - Live at the Soft Rock Bungalow (Sex Camel + GS&N)

Last week we were treated to a rocking evening at the Soft Rock Bungalow starring Giant Sunbeam and the Noise and a beast of a band indeed: SEX CAMEL. This foursome of gentlemen make the sex desert passable and the sex dessert just within reach. Giant Sunbeam and the Noise Boys lent their bizarre twist to jazzy funk and laid down a killer middle set, and the Dizzy closed out with a mad powerhouse which was sadly not captured for posterity. We hope you enjoy this delicious bit of live hijinks with Sex Camel and GS&N. Stay tuned for more live footage and interviews with Birmingham artists, musicians, movers, shakers, and one ornery candlestick maker.

Episode 20 - Matchi and Analysis: "Invalid Litter Dept."

The dark, coy, and literary band (but in a good way) Matchi is here in the studio to discuss their work and our shared musical arty exploits. Matchi are an art pop trio comprised of Shannon Ellis, (poet, singer, sampler), Josh Karg (guitar, drum programmer), and Isaac Starnes (bass guitar). We're familiars as friends and showmates at Springfest and you might've heard Shannon last week with Jake Easter talking about that event. We get band history and two songs recorded in-house specifically as sneak peaks to their upcoming EP. This is a chocked episode overflowing with sickly sweet symbolism and tuning of souls.  

My art analysis portion of the show comes recommended by Kyle Weems. I talk for a length of time about the background, musicality, and bitingly effective purpose of At the Drive-In's song "Invalid Litter Dept." about the ongoing and unsolved femicide in factory shantytowns in Juarez, Mexico. A serious latter half to a beautiful show this week. 
Thank you heartfully for your support. Kindly subscribe to us on iTunes if you like the show and give us a good review and rating, which really helps get the Earth Hotel more exposure. 

A plus, until next time,
Jacquie Cotillard //

Episode 10 - UFO Talk with Ryan Brown AND MORE. . .

This super-packed half show features my friend Ryan Brown and I sharing some spooky unexplained experiences we each have had. I also got around to writing an equally spoopy sonata to serve as our Podcast theme, and you'd better bet I'll re-perform it in so many future forms. The archives open up and give us a demo from my upcoming album HYPNOCRACY, and the Dizzy reports from that time we painted the town red with our new song "Confused as Hell." To finish up, I pull the books down from the trees and read 'em askew. Bookcase Cut-Up as a bookend. 

You can now order special copies of The Dizzy's looming album WRAPPED IN PLASTIC for $20 over at our S.T.O.R.E.
