Episode 12: Lipstick Homicide Retrospective, Part 1 of 3



"Lipstick Homicide, this is your life!"

Okay, most of you young'uns won't get that joke. And this isn't about their life so much as their music career. But I just couldn't past the chance to say that!

Seriously though, with Rachel leaving her hometown of Coralville for the bright lights of Minneapolis, it seem like a good time to look over the career of Lipstick Homicide.

So similiar to the show "This Is Your Life", this episode features friends and collaborators of Lipstick Homicide talking about the band. Part 1 featuring pretty much the work they did in 2009 and 2010. Just click here to see what the folks all said or on each song to see what they had to say there.

I hope you find a few surprises and treats you weren't expecting or didn't know about!

A big thanks to Trevor Treiber, long time friend of Rachel, Kate, and Luke, for all the help he gave me on getting this all together. Go check out his band, The Blendours!

Also, thanks to KRUI and Griffle TV for letting use their recordings of Lipstick Homicide live.

Finally, there will be a separate episode between each part of this retrospective. Not everyone is a fan of pop punk, and I want to still give them something to listen to. So Part 2 will be appearing around the end of July.

Episode 11: Guest Producer Bryon Dudley


Bryon Dudley got this opportunity because he won a contest, but now I've decided to open to anybody and anyone interested! If you would like to pick the music for an episode, feel free to send a list of 15-30 minutes worth of music by Iowa artists, of ANY genre or decade, to iowamusicshowcase@gmail.com.  And if I can get permission from the artists, I will play your list on a future episode!

If you haven't heard of Bryon Dudley, then you probably aren't very involved in the central Iowa, or at least Ames, music scene, Byron, usually along with his wife Rachel, is, and has been in numerous bands here.

But besides being a talented and prolific musician, Byron runs the record label, Nova Labs. He also runs a recording studio, The Spacement. And if that's not enough, he is also one of the co-owners of The Iowa Music Store!

So I feel it is both appropriate and an honor to have Bryon as my first, but hopefully not last, guest producer on my podcast!

Episode 10: Iowa Country Music



Strangely, for a state where farming plays such a central role, we really don't have a big country scene. It seems that if a musician wants to dig into that rural, pastural part of their music psyche, in this state, they usually turn to folk or Americana.

But be as that may, a few souls still are ready to tread the country road. And in this episode, we featured 5 Iowa artists doing just that, ranging from alt country to modern country.


For more information, click on the artist or song...

Opening - Iowa Music Showcase opening by Dylan Boyle
Song 1 - "Don't You Pray for Me" by The Colt Walkers
Song 2 - "North of the River" by Monday Mourners
Song 3 - "Hold On" by Crossfire
Song 4 - "That Kinda Tough" by Danny Grause
Song 5 - "Aim's Gettin' Better" by Diana Upton-Hill
