TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

You make a tape / I receive it in the mail / And I force myself busy / The diversion will prevail / And I will swallow all my guilt / With little pills and forge my chin up / And I will only think about it in the morning / In the bathtub

Every now and then The Idelic Hour needs to go to what we call “a rerun.” Over the last couple of weeks there has been a lot of running around, and in the midst of all of my “back to school activities,” I caught a wicked summer cold.

A 100 degree fever with a cold sucks, so instead of rushing to the mic to cut an Idelic Hour before we all blow for the long weekend, I thought I’d take the Labor Day weekend off.

I was thinking to start the Idelic fall season, it would be nice to kick it off with a record or two that came out in the Obama era. So the first records of the set are from 2011 and 2012.

Dirty Beaches is an artist that blew my mind at SXSW in 2011. “Bathtub,” a record from Waxahatchee in 2012, became the muse for the rest of this week’s Idelic Hour playlist. It’s devoted to the dreamy sounds of summer 2019.

These are the days, let’s make more of them.
