STICK IT OUT THE CLOSET FOR THE DRUMS.

Play

Episode 107. mp3. cue. Released January 01, 2009.

The first episode of 2009 and the first episode featuring brand new fractionized length! Content-wise wes is tying up some loose ends of 2008. And you know when the last episode is all dancing and electronics that you’re soon due for some REAL pounding drums and some scratchy guitars and bellowed vocals. So today it gets down pretty gritty at first but it does mellow out to the middle and eventually even betrays faint whiffs of synth-pop, chamber-pop and doo-wop.

    Yo, yo, yo…
    Damon, I’ve enjoyed this “slimmed down” version. Perfect length to provide a soundtrack to my coffee-drinking and news-reading in bed this fine Saturday morning in my new diggs!

    I’m sorry, I gotta disagree with this “Kristen” lady, whoever she is. I want the long episodes. The longer the better. The longer the better. The longer the better. The longer the better. The longer the better…

    Hey Russ.. I know you liked them long bloated things of old (hey I gotta get behind my new branding) but I hope you do notice that the short guys flow into one another seamlessly!
