Make More Noise 60

This is the sort of solidly eclectic playlist you've come to expect from Make More Noise. It ranges from the abstract to the sweet to the rough to the dancing-shoes-required. There's respected artists and up-and-coming musicians. It's mostly new, and a few tracks that feel through the cracks this past year. Keep your ears open, dear listeners. Make More Noise is live on Wednesdays 8pm PT/11pm ET thanks to KXSC.org and the University of Southern California.

Make More Noise 59 (Jade Tree Edition)

Jade Tree Records had a reputation for signing emerging musicians that came to define the boundaries of emo, punk rock, post punk, screamo, hardcore and other iconic genres of late '90s and early '00s. They also brought together talented artists for a number of intriguing limited edition split EPs. This made their roster a hotbed for new collaborations and exchanges of ideas. To top it all off, they did this from the tiny state of Delaware, a state with no major cities or renown. Though the label has been a lot less active for a few years now, their impact on music cannot be ignored.

This special edition of Make More Noise just begins to scratch the surface of Jade Tree's extensive catalog. If you've never heard of this label, be prepared for an awesome education. And, if you're familiar, prepare yourself for a delightfully nostalgic walk down memory lane.

Originally aired live on KXSC.org, a service of USC.

Petrified Forest

Back in January my boyfriend and I took a little southwest road trip that began with New Years Eve in Prescott, Arizona and swung through most of western New Mexico before returning to Los Angeles via the southernmost route. In between Prescott and Santa Fe, we detoured from Interstate 40 to take a drive through Petrified Forest National Park. I've driven this section of I-40 at least 10 times, and had never had the time for this detour before. Unfortunately, we arrived only two hours before the park closed for the night, so we had to rush through a lot of the scenery. But, I will say the winter sun setting lends this series some delightfully dramatic photos.
PS. Additional photos from this wonderful road trip will be posted soon, including photos of Saguaro National Park.
