Razorcake Podcast #315
New Zealand / Flying Nun Records
New Zealand is home to some of the best pop & rock bands around. If you dig the Kinks, Lou Reed/Velvet Underground...or Superchunk and Yo La Tengo...then this'll treat you right. (This is the second of five podcasts I recorded when in LA last month.)
Razorcake Podcast #313
Recess Records Edition with Todd, Mike, and Daryl
Join Go Metric's Mike Faloon and Todd Taylor & Daryl Gussin from Razorcake as they wrestle with the idea of a Recess Records-centric podcast. Play the best songs? Focus on favorite bands? Best albums? Tell the label's 20+ year story? Tell the recent story? They never decided. Ask them tomorrow and the playlist might change. Might not. Ask Daryl...yeah, no.
Here is Fan Interference, the Zisk Magazine Podcast, Episode 1. Mike Faloon and Steve Reynolds are joined on this debut podcast by Brian Cogan and Dan Dunford as they discuss Cogan's contribution to the book Fan Interference, “Rusty Staub: Heroism From Left to Right Field.”
Our second episode sees Steve and Mike welcome Dan Dunford to read his piece from our book Fan Interference, as well as a general discussion about the Yankees and Red Sox rivalry. Too many Pretty in Pink references and fun times for all!
Razorcake Podcast - Episode #152
New Zealand Pop/Flying Nun Records
New Zealand: It’s kiwi pop with a focus on the Flying Nun bands of ‘80s and ‘90s. Listen to the start of the first cut, “Tally Ho!” If you dig it, stick around. You’ll love the rest. Think Velvet Underground’s third album or the Kinks circa Village Green or Arthur.

Syracuse: PopCity (With Some Punk Rock Too)
The power pop land that time forgot. That’s Syracuse, New York. The Salt City. Best known for people passing through on their way to bigger and better things — whether it’s the students making their way through Syracuse University or the minor baseball players hoping to make it to the majors. But Syracuse also has a history of great music. Like a lot of local music, Syracuse’s best bands are often better appreciated by people living outside of the area. I loved growing up in Syracuse but I was unaware of area bands when I was living there. Ever since the early ‘90s, though, there’s been a steady stream of relatively easy to find compilations that have recirculated Syracuse’s best power pop and punk.
