SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 255

Episode 255 -What Flavor is that? Uggh! Topic: Ask Brad (your questions about Brad and SLTM answered) MUSIC: Kindling – dual female/male vocals ala My bloody valentine. But, where as MBV was riding in a smoked filled car with no air conditioning, twelve people, their possessions and a bad transmission, kindling is more driving. Three songs in and so far they have the same driving sound. Driving rock with haunting vocals. Although, track three has female vocals mostly. I do like the break stop in “Blinding Wave” . So the songs sound similar, a bands sound is their sound. No way getting around that. I like the couple of songs with female lead vocals. Nice juxtaposition to the double lead. 12 songs might be a bit much for one sitting, but the songs are on average three and a half minutes. Brave The Waters: chiming, slow paced kind of spacey or at least spaced , instrumental songs. Not what I was expecting at all. But isn’t that the point of all of this? I think so. Songs sound very similar. Hard to pick one from another. I would like to drop in the alien jibberish from Fallout 4 into one or more of these songs. Just as something to break it up . Well played but a bit pedestrian and normal. Inward Oceans – I’m in this bar, mostly because I don’t want to be alone, but also because the house just feels so big and empty now. There’s a guy sitting at the piano playing, somber drifting pieces, but I can’t get myself soaked into them, there’s a table of people talking loudly and making noise. Fitzgerald’s is a nice bar, and the whiskey is warm and soothing. All I can think about is how I’ve fucked up my life. I’m a bit soused, desperate and broken hearted. Then all of the sudden this loud mouth starts yelling at the guy playing piano. “Play Louder” and “Play my anus bleeds for thee” and laughing, like its the funniest thing any drunk asshole has ever said. I’m just trying to drown myself out , but this dick keeps bringing me back to reality. So instead of standing up and telling the loud fucker to shut up or I’ll punch him, I instead head to my car and cry. I wish I was dead. Enablers: If I had your voice, I would talk sing everything.

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 254

Episode 254 – “Maybe you need a knee brace Ellie, Heh Heh” Topic- Political Jokes with Hooting and Clapping MUSIC: Apophys: Heavy without being dense, like a concrete punch with a wet unsettled finish. Guy growls , band backs with riffs lifted out of an H.P. Lovecraft short story and we all go home with something to tell out significant others. Never lazy or plodding. Like a bullet train careening around the tracks, fast but never out of control with the conductor barking over the P.A. About the decaying world around us. Next stop, the wasteland. Courtney John – we don’t review just a single, so I got nothing on this one. Hellbastard– rock music with dirty turgy vocals. Vocals that sound like they’ve been run through the mud, left out in the sun, and then drowned in Old Milwaukee. NowI know why it sounds like that, band has been around since 1985. the song 8.4 “Paws” is a cool song, Like the addition of keyboard and the talking. It’s a cool change of pace. A different side to the band that helps the metal standout a bit more. Immortal Bird: speed metal. Fast and faster. Coming right at you. And even though you saw it coming at you from miles away, you still couldn’t avoid it’s brutal thrash of the sword as you fall over. As you slowly slip away the voices you hear remind you of your inability to change things and your left wondering why you didn’t just step aside at the last moment and let it happen around you instead of to you. Long speedy songs, reminds me of my favorite clip joint.

SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 253

Episode 253 – Fudge Season Officially begins tomorrow night at Sundown Topic:Dig deeper with Cousin Barry MUSIC ON EPISODE 253: Boss Kong: 2 song single. Lo-fi rock music. Singer sounds like he is croaking into an empty mason jar. The second song “vietcong” seems to be from an Agent Orange cancer suffering Vietnam Vet. He’s relating his experience from that conflict. His voice is going but you get the weight of the situation. Basic Mentors tracks laid under a croaking life clinging world weary excapist . It’s only two songs, but you get a good feel I think of what they are and where they are coming from. Jukebox Romantics: Sounds like 1977 again, and late 1982. What a great run we had back then. Up in arms about the world in front of us, angry about having no rights, but willing to take matters into our own hands. Too bad it was only a guitar and some rageful emotional singing. This release reminds me of that time, if only I hadn’t been to young to know it was going on around me. Feels like I was there though. Just Fine, Just fine. Speedy, punky, tuneful, rock with a polish not seen since Weatherford and Haynes, the hip hop dance troupe from my youth. Broken Cross: ( full music review coming soon) Record New Highs: laid back and mellow as hell. Very relaxing. Good music for those days during a nice summer day with a good breeze. I can see my self out in the hammock I don’t have , in the yard, relaxing with a lemonade or refreshing beer listening to this release. Enjoying the moment. Or the times when you’re sitting on the front porch watching the neighbor kid working his ass off mowing his parents lawn. This music is likable, like the person at work you don’t know too well, but they seem friendly every time you see them and you hear good things about them. “Unity” is a nice jam. If I had a TV Show and I needed a good band who played some smooth pop/jazz in the background in a bar scene, this would be perfect. “Unity” and “Duva Duva” repeat in remixes but who cares.
