    Lush Heaviness: The Immersive Sound Textures of KILN

    Next up on our batch of episodes devoted to the wide world of electronic music, we take a left turn and listen to a couple of tracks from the ambient-electronic trio KILN. By manipulating live instrumentation (treated guitars, sampled drums) with field recordings and other found sounds, KILN create lush and immersive soundscapes that borderline on hallucinogenic, and masterfully walk the line between organic, acoustic and electronic music. Grab a nice set of headphones for this episode!

    Riding the Synthwave with Com Truise

    Riding the Synthwave with Com Truise

    Nearly a decade ago, the synthwave genre saw a new wave popularity after the release of the action-drama Drive, with Kavinsky's "Nightcall" being prominently featured in the film. But Seth Haley (who goes by the Com Truise) had been making analog electronic music for years prior to that, and released his debut EP Cyanide Sisters just one year before. Com Truise's brand of synthwave expertly blends IDM and chillwave elements with the nostalgia of 80's synth film-scores.
    Tracklist

    Com Truise - Slow Peels

    John Carpenter - The President Is Gone

    Harold Faltermeyer - Fletch Lives

    Com Truise - Cyanide Sisters

    Com Truise - BASF Ace

    Com Truise - Pyragony

    Orions Belte - Tudo Que Você Podia Ser

    Legowelt - Danger In The Air

    Com Truise - Sundriped

    Sidetrack: Frampton Comes Alive!

    Hot on the heels of our McCartney Unplugged episode, we're listening to one of the most beloved and best selling live records of all time, "Frampton Comes Alive!". Recorded in 1975 and released the following year, this album took Peter Frampton from opening act to household name, and made him synonymous with the Talk Box vocal effect after singles "Do You Feel Like We Do" and "Show Me The Way" flirted with the top of the charts.

    Paul McCartney Unplugged in '91:

    Paul McCartney Unplugged in '91:

    Fresh off his 106-show Paul McCartney World Tour that featured dozens of staple Beatles and Wings songs, it's no wonder McCartney saw MTV's Unplugged as the perfect opportunity to take his live show format and do the exact opposite. Relatively unheard of up to that point, McCartney's performance and subsequent album release gave Unplugged jumpstarted the show's popularity and helped it gain the cult status that it went onto receive.

    Our Top 10 Tracks from the 2010s

    To wrap up our batch of recap episodes, we look back at the last decade to bring you our Top 10 from the 2010s.

From Courtney Barnett to Kendrick Lamar, we hope you'll like what we came up with. And in case you need even more of our picks, we've put together a playlist of our 100 favorite non-singles from the last decade. Check out both playlists on Spotify.

Its like hanging out with friends - talking about music we all love

The podast is reminiscent of college days, hanging out with buddies and spending hours playing tracks we love. Travis and Quentin, real-life brothers, bring their love of music and research together and invite you to plop down on their couch and hang out with them while they play some tunes. I love their passion for music and how it's expressed and their taste in bands seems to align with my own and yet I find them introducing me to music I missed but need to hear. A great way to spend an hour.
