SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 245

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 245: You Sir, are a Douche and A half! Topic: We discuss the mumbled lyrics of “Sunglasses at Night” Music on this episode: Northless -The Song “Cold Migration” feels like a departure for Northless to me, I haven’t listened to all their releases, only four, but it seems different. Nice to hear a different attack from a good band. I like Northless a lot. World is Sinking is a great album. (Full Review coming soon) Animal – starts off with a woman in distress and her call to 911. someone is trying to break into her home. Abduction? Judging a book by its cover can yield positive results. I did it with this release, Metal. Knew it when I saw the band name, cover and title. That’s okay this time cause it’s good metal. It’s good to know what you are getting, you want a hamburger? Here’s your hamburger. Song one ends with a woman crying and heavy breathing, right into song two at break neck pace. “Sick” is the psycho who abducted this woman, fighting the voices in his head. I don’t think the sane part is winning. An interesting concept album. A killers audio diary set to metal music. “Dark Room”, the evil has taken over. The killing is done. “Worthless”, there’s remorse. A feeling, a desperate feeling of wanting to be stopped. Bandit – three of the four bands on this four way split we have played on this podcast. I liked all four songs on this release, Slow and steady has become one of my new favorite bands. Like the idea of a four way split. As for Bandit, this song might be about regret, or maybe I’m reading into the message. Regret is such a time tested classic. And who hasn’t in their life time tried to live without regret or wanted to go back and change something they regretted? Everyone I bet. CDC – Until the last song “Temple” this is a standard, really good metal album. Some speed metal thrown in and a release that gives you just what you need (5 songs) not overstaying it’s welcome. Back to “Temple” , you would think that a different band had recorded this song and tacked it on without CDC knowing it. The song calls to mind Rage Against the Machine. Nice left turn. I think if you played the first four songs and then the last one by itself,...

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 244

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 244: I don’t want to open up a can of worms all over your spaghetti Topic: First Episode of Radio Drama, The Livesays Music on this episode: Deforesters nice four song ep. All bands should take this path when releasing their music. Four or five song ep’s are the perfect packaging to get your music out more often. Whats an album anymore anyway? Reminds me of Alkaline Trio, later All with Chad Price. Up beat good vocals with driving beats and lyrics to make you wonder why you didn’t do more with your life before everything went wrong. Moves at a nice pace. Good rock band. A less heady or politically motivated Bad Religion. Maybe that’s an unfair tag. As if All didn’t include some of the world’s punk rock super heros from the Descendents. If they didn’t have the background and went even further into a rock vein especially after Chad Price joined. “Drank too much, shit got weird” lots of sing along moments. It’s almost as if one of the guys from Arliss Nancy decided to release a solo album. Graves at Sea one of the lead singers you first hear on this release sounds like a demonic pissed off annoyed child. Very interesting vocal choice, have not heard anything like that before. Wonder if that is done in the studio or it’s the actual quality of that persons voice. Songs are seven minutes plus. The other vocalist stands out to me too. It’s screamo vocals but he sings very clear. Vocals still have their power, but I can make out clearly what he is saying. Well done on the vocals. Adult Mom Full music review coming soon Sourvein more straight ahead metal. More COC than Lair of the Minotaur. Good mix of the two bands on the split (graves at sea the other). I’m gonna have to play a song from each, which is exactly what I did or will do.

SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 243

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 243 Featuring Part 2 of Brad’s Audio Diary With Music from: Basement Benders – “First Heat” at first I thought it was simply about a persons love for their car, wanting to keep it running not only for transportation , but pride as well. Upon multiple listens I now think its a metaphor for a failing relationship. One that’s being parted out and the one sided hope that it can be patched and put back together. Sucker, that never works. “Wedding Song” calls to mind the really good rock band the Mind Extinguishers from Bloomington, IL. The interchanging female and male lead vocals call them too mind. As does their overall sound at times. Let’s hope this band doesn’t take the wrong turn they did. Did I hear a Silos name check in “Betsy”? Walter would be pleased. Dimesland – Heavy metal instrumentals where the vocals and sound clips are thrown in much like a guitar solo or to break up the song. There are 8 songs on this release. I’m not sure how I feel about instrumental albums. On one hand it’s nice to hear something different, and these guys do throw in some vocals, well sprinkle them in really. On the other hand, instrumental albums can seem a bit repetitive and unrecognizable. Our Theory -opinions on this have not been formed, too hard to get a good read just on a single.
