#1903: The Upsetter

I don’t consider myself a serious dude but my playlists often imply otherwise. This week we’ll dive into a collection that reflects my view of the state of our union. Classic psychedelia, modern punk, big riffs and golden grooves collide.

You can listen on iTunes Podcasts and Spotify as well!

Enjoy and have fun. Serious fun. Continue reading “#1903: The Upsetter”

Soundtrack To The Circus: Notables from 2018

Everyone has one of these “Best Of” lists and it’s been diverse this year. Here’s my list, in no real order, of notable releases with a brief blurb for each and (most importantly) links for you to listen and buy direct from the artists!  We’ll start with my absolute favorites and follow the consciousness stream the rest of the way.  Bands from the NYC area will have a * next to their name ’cause that’s where I live and it’s a great place to hear music.

The World’s Mad and I Just Wanna Listen to Panic Blooms and Sex & Food

Modern anxiety and brinksmanship have reached peak levels it seems, and two recent albums have captured our current balance of hope and worry perfectly for me.

Both released earlier this year, Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Panic Blooms” and Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s “Sex & Food” really do it for me.  Each under their own power is good, but I think they’re better together.  They’re the alternate soundtrack to San Junipero. They’re a Black-Eyed Soul opera in three acts.

I’ve done the work for you, if you wanna hear my impressions click “read more”-> Continue reading “The World’s Mad and I Just Wanna Listen to Panic Blooms and Sex & Food”
