Hello friends! Episode 12 of The ShredCast was a delicious one (both in terms of audio goodness and snack-related conversation) so let’s break it down.
Right off the bat I want to apologize for the last minute of banter being cut out. I’m not sure how or why it happened but it was unfortunate for two reasons.
1) We didn’t get to hear Brian’s “Go!”
2) More importantly- you all didn’t get to hear the name of folks who contributed our outro song! My apologies. The band is called Half Past Seven and the song is “Pop A Clip.” Check it out.
—-What We’ve Been Listening To—-
Brian kicked things off in our first segment by hopping in the DeLorean and traveling back to 1985 with a little Tears For Fears action. Think you’ve never heard a Tears For Fears song? You’re probably wrong. Allow me to prove it.
Dave stayed squarely in the electronic pop realm of TFT by digging some Ronald Jenkees. Jenkees (for those who don’t know, like me) is a YouTube star. But check it- he’s not an annoying YouTube star! I had never heard of this guy before but, as Brian predicted with his likening Jenkees’ stuff to video game music, I do now. There’s something absolutely hypnotizing about the ridiculousness of his keyboard journeys (that’s right, journeys) that make them pretty damn catchy. Also, the fact that they sound like they’re ripped straight from a video game doesn’t hurt at all (again, Brian was right).
Plus, the way he slaps a thick emphasis on the “Tubes” of his “Hello YouTubes!” is hilarious.
…I just read that he’s fake. Ronald Jenkees is the fake persona of a guy named Ben Feltes.
Well… that’s a bummer. Check out some of his stuff anyway. Fun music.
Instead of completing the pop trifecta, I thrust us out of synth and into metal. Children of Bodom. Sixpounder. Tough. As. Nails.
That’s all I have to say about that.
We chatted about the new Mayhem Festival lineup, Steel Panther’s issues with their balls (tee-hee), the craaaaaaaazy technology of a 3D printer printing an actual record and more! Be sure to download and listen for our thoughts and witty observations.
—-The Solo: Objectivity Vs. Subjectivity In Music—-
We went deep into the rabbit hole on this topic, friends. It was a great discussion so be sure to listen and tell us your thoughts on the matter!
Until next time…
Our new Monday release schedule kicks off with a rip roarin’ episode! We chat Tears for Fears, Children of Bodom, You Tube stars and the deliciousness of Goldfish S’Mores. In headlines, we discuss the Mayhem lineup announcement, Steel Panther’s balls and the trouble they get them into and super-crazy-high-tech 3D printers. To cap it all off, we talk subjectivity vs. objectivity in music and end the show with a rockin’ tune from our friends in Half Past Seven! Mondays just got a whole lot better.
