Spicecast: Future Elevators
What do elevators from the future sound like? Funky! Michael Shackelford and the rest of Birmingham’s Future Elevators were kind enough to drop into the studio before their gig at Copper Top last Saturday to talk about their music and upcoming tour.
Their sound ranges from the poppy to the surreal. His self-titled debut as Future Elevators expertly mixes whimsy and gravity, the fantastical with the everyday. Even as he grounds his lyrics in real-world issues, Shackelford fills his songs with new and improbable combinations of familiar sound.

The Wolves are back in the studio this week to talk about their kickstarter campaign and upcoming album!

Huntsvillain History Podcast #3 Laws Made of Whips – Slavery in Madison County
On this month’s Episode of Huntsvillain History John O’Brien and Ben Jobe take on the more tragic side of Huntsville history, the subject of Slavery in North Alabama. With census and court records dating from 1809 through 1837 O’Brien and Jobe talk about how laws, economics and fear effected the lives of blacks in North Alabama, free and enslaved. This episode includes explicit discussion of slavery and violence that may be inappropriate for some listeners.
In the 1820’s 49% of the population of Madison County were counted as enslaved, and only a handful of official records indicate any evidence of these people’s lives. Listen to Part 1 and Part 2 of Laws made of Whips here, or catch the show on Spice-Radio.com/radio/ at Noon Friday-Sunday and 6pm Monday-Thursday.
