Stay Tuned: Juian Klincewicz Playlist 001 Presented by DBlanc

Julain Klincewicz of LUBE playlst stay tuned what youth

We used to make playlists for girls. Hell, we still do. It is a lost and underused medium really. Playlists. Mixed tapes. Burned CDs. Compilations of music curated by people who have time to think it matters. That’s us. They’re your own super albums. Themed out and specific for every hour of the day. And lucky for us we have access to some people who shred at making music, art, love, waves and especially playlists. So in our effort to educate, we’ll be unveiling this series of playlists called “Stay Tuned” throughout the year.

This first playlist was curated by Julian Clincewicz and Kiva Ivey of the band Lube. They’re from San Diego, get straight A’s, and shred at everything they touch it seems. They recently opened for Blouse and Perfect Pussy and are about to do their first west coast tour. In the meantime, we had them curate some tunes that you’ll find after the jump.


A bit about what you’re listening to by Julian Klincewicz and Kiva Ivey of the band Lube.

1. “Have Gun Will Travel” by Johnny Western
Johnny Western’s voice is soft as silk, The Morrissey of the wild west. Someday I’d like to write some cowboy songs if i can.

2. “Woke Up Sticky” by Peter Perrett and the One.
I feel like this song isn’t easy to get into, but once Peter Perrett starts singing it makes a lot more sense. All the noise that goes on in the background is really great too.

3. “I Wanna Be Adored” by The Stone Roses
Kiva introduced me to The Stone Roses. I’m pretty bad at actually listening to music, but when he played me this song it clicked right away.

4. “Range Life” by Pavement
Lyrically this song is great. A lot of times (for me at least), its hard to write lyrics that are honest, sound like you, and sound good. “Range Life” really nails all this for me. Also kind of goes along with my desire to write some cowboy songs — spend some time on a range, ride some horses, etc.

5. “Meet me in the Bathroom” (Live) by The Strokes
It’s my dream to play an MTV Two Dollar Bill like this. This whole concert is amazing.Watch the entire thing sometime.

6. “Because the Night” by Patti Smith
If you haven’t read Just Kids (Patti Smith Autobiography) yet, you’re missing out so much. That book made me want to move to New York, it made me cry, it got me so excited to write music. There’s this part where she describes how her and Robert Mapplethorpe were walking in the street at night, and they heard “Because the night” on the radio, and Robert looks at Patti and says “Patti, You got famous before I did.” Its so great.

7. “Stereo Sanctity” by Sonic Youth
I learned how to do frontside 5050’s on a flat bar to this song. I think it’d be kind of cool to do a video part to it.

8. “Temptation 87” by New Order
This is the jam! My favorite part is the Oh, you’ve got green eyes. Oh, you’ve got blue eyes. Oh, you’ve got grey eyes line.

9. “David Bowie I Love You (Since I Was Six)” by The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Anton Newcombe is a personal hero of mine even though a lot of people think he’s an asshole because of DIG! think his work ethic and the fact that he doesn’t let other people get in the way of his “vision” is admirable. This is one of my favorite songs off of “Take It From The Man!” The production is great all around and I really like how strained the vocals sound for some reason.

10. “Let It Flow” by Spiritualized
A really heavy song lyrically. The cool, calm vocals mixed with effected gospel-like vocals always make me feel like I’m floating. And then really hitting the ground when the heavy drums and guitar kick in. I think Jason Pierce is one of the few people who can make such fucked-up subject matter turn it into something beautiful.

11. “China Steps” by Women
Off of one of my favorite records of the last 10 years or so. I love the way they mix really, really hypnotic krautrock beats with detuned no-wave guitar lines — not to mention the great, eerie vocals. Women always are one of the few contemporary bands that acknowledge music history. It’s a shame they couldn’t have put out one more record.

12. “Marquee Moon” by Television
One of my favorite “guitar albums.” Always loved the way Television seemed to be weaving their guitar-lines. I think this song in particular is a great example of all the instruments pulling in different directions but also coming together at the same time.

13. “Astronomy Dominee” by Pink Floyd
Could never get into post-Barrett Pink Floyd, but “Piper At The Gates of Dawn” is one of my favorite albums of all time. The way this song builds up gradually is really great. I feel like this song really combines the best of Syd Barretts sporadic tendencies and a really tight rhythm section.

14. “The Great Pub Rock Revival” by Denim
I’ve been a huge Felt fan for a long time but when I first heard Denim I couldn’t get into it. After a while I really got into how unapologetically “pop” they were. Denim On Ice’s “The Great Pub Rock Revival” is a really good, straightforward, rock song, with a really catchy chorus.

15. “Someone Else” by Pure X
Saw these guys play at the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock with Sun Araw a few months ago. Some of them were on ecstasy and seemed to be really “jamming,” which was great. A totally different experience live than on record. I think “Someone Else” is a good example of the “album” side of Pure X. It’s an insanely emotional song with really great vocal delivery.

Stay Tuned: Balaram Stack Playlist 036: When smoke pours out of tinted car windows, it usually sounds like this inside

During filming of Balaram’s “4 Cities” vid we heard a lot of good music we don’t normally hear. At bars, in cars, at Balaram’s house, on the train. The kind of shit that kind of makes you want to party. Modern hits mixed with classic hip hop. Very New York. Very sick. At certain times we’d…

We love Amy Hood.

Stay Tuned: Donovon Piscopo Playlist 034: A cool breeze of Roxy Music, Lou Reed and Fleetwood Mac with a few hammers tossed in

We really like how Donovon Piscopo skates. And when that happens we usually like their music taste. This is the case yet again. Donovon is from Covina, CA, rides for Hockey and his parents own The Pawn Shop Skate Shop. But let’s start with the music. A nice mix of Roxy Music, Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Thunders…

Ben Kadow is from New York and skates Tomkins Square park just about every day. And what you won’t get from his mix of death metal and distortion playlist he made for us, is that he loves cooking. Actually worked at Superiority Burger in the East Village, and his part in Hockey II is one…

Stay Tuned: David Stenström Playlist 032: An autumn-inspired mix from our favorite Scandinavian skateboarder

We literally met David Stenström at a skatepark in Stockholm, Sweden randomly. We just loved how he skated. It was so natural. He is the son of Swedish skateboard pioneer Tobbe Stenström and was introduced to skateboarding at an early age. Since we met him, he’s been featured in the latest Polar Skate Co video I like…

Stay Tuned: Lee Wilson Playlist 031: A Mix of Pet Shop boys & thug heavy hip hop

You’re going to cook up a pretty unique playlist when you’re half Balinese and half Australian. And so that’s exactly what Lee Wilson did here. A nice mix of “Hey I know that song,” and another half good thug-heavy hip hop to get you going. We literally had this playlist on repeat during a recent boat trip…

A few months ago we got to hangout with Leo a bunch while filming his Fairly Normal episode. We skated and toured around his hometown of Long Beach, but mostly he made music and we watched him play music at some shows with his band Travesura. He made us this Stay Tuned playlist and it’s…

Stay Tuned: Jake Anderson Playlist 028: The worst/best Mix ever made

We’re not exactly sure what the hell you’d call this radio station Jake Anderson has created for us in this new Stay Tuned — but it might be an entire new genre altogether. But it’s a damn good time and we’re backing it. It’s a little bit bipolar but it does the trick, so put it on, dance…

Colin Moran is one of the stars of Metal Neck. And Metal Neck is one of the highlights of our year. We had Colin make us a playlist of his favorite songs. And he absolutely nailed it. We just received a fresh batch of Stay Tuned playlists from all sorts of rad people, and you’re…

Stay Tuned: Kai Hing Playlist 026: Soundtrack from the boat while filming Everything’s Wrong but in the Right Place

Music is a key element in any setting, and 10 days on a boat in the middle of the Indian Ocean can get a little repetitive. Thankfully while on set for Everything’s Wrong but in the Right Place, Kai Hing stepped up and delivered the musical goods on a daily basis. We asked him to…
