Joel Frieders

Joel Frieders woke up three salmon streams by merely emitting a low frequency squelch out of his thyroid. We hope he continues with such impressive feats of science, because he for sure needs help in the tattoos of fruits in precarious situations category. Rob Campobasso for Athlete of the Month. If cream of tartar isn't actually creamy, then why the hell am I so meteor showered? Is it any wonder. IS IT ANY WONDAAAA!

Welles - Life Like Mine

Joel Frieders | June 20, 2017
I've been pretty healthily obsessed with Welles for the last few months. Let's not mention that I get to see him in an intimate setting this Thursday at The Law Office Pub & Music Hall in Yorkville, Illinois for the Summer...

Love Dad: Hi Bros - SORRY I'VE BEEN GONE FOR 6 MONTHS

Joel Frieders | June 16, 2017
I am knee deep in the longest musical depression of my adult life.  Since November 6th, 2016, I haven't had the patience to listen to a new album on the whole. I used to listen to life without skipping a damn thing. Since November 6th, 2016, I haven't wanted...

Joel Taylor - Two Sides

Joel Frieders | May 26, 2017
Who the hell is Joel Taylor? Why does this song sound like I woke up without the aid of an alarm clock on a Sunday morning to the smells of bacon and fresh brewed coffee? Why do I want to put shiplap or reclaimed barn wood on every flat...

Childhood - Californian Light

Joel Frieders | April 28, 2017
My life has been completely insane lately. Not that yours hasn't been, but I'm celebrating being able to actually kinda sorta see for the first time in a few weeks. I will say one thing I never thought I'd say: Cataracts at 37 is some shit bros.  The first...

Open Mike Eagle - Dark Comedy Late Show

Joel Frieders | April 11, 2017
Open Mike Eagle makes me hard exhale out of my nose holes. Half of the exhale is "holy shit he's right, we're so fucked", the other half is embarassment. I'm embarassed by how we've arrived at whatever the fuck 2017 is.  Even the creative...

Between The Rain - Mudroom

Joel Frieders | April 7, 2017
I haven't been able to write about music for fucking weeks. Ain't none of your bidness why, but holy fuck I needed something like Between The Rain to snap me out of it. I thought this was going to suck based solely on the fact that it's a...

One Song: David Pritchard - An Admission of Guilt

Joel Frieders | March 14, 2017
Knowing absolutely nothing about David Pritchard, nor his 1977 album Nocturnal Earthworm Stew, I will admit to being completely fucking mesmerized by his track "An Admission of Guilt". I spent the better part of last week...

One Song: Hanging Valleys - Brother

Joel Frieders | March 10, 2017
Hit play on this song and then imagine me emerging, almost birthing, naked and lumpy, and fully coated with a thick transparent mucous, out of a large blooming flower. As I stand, I shake my hips to and fro, whipping the clear, sticky goop from my thighs to...
