Mixing cinematic beats, undeniably catchy melodies, and eloquent and revealing lyrics, singer and truth poet SkyDxddy exists within the conscious alt-pop realm – and she’s pushing it even further as she pioneers traumacore, a new genre of her own making.

Bipolar Buddah ,

I knew him when!

Steev has been a constant source inside knowledge of the Boston (and beyond) Indy rock scene and I’ve been glad to know of him since the jitty pre Y2K era of 1999.

All around cool guy who likes cats and pro wrestling. The pod is worth a listen - just please get The Chelsea Curve on while I’m still able to hear it.

Great podcast

Steve does a really great job and clearly does his homework with all his guests !! The conversation is easy flowing and he has some true icons on his podcast, Highly recommended !!

Humble God of Burgers ,

🤘🤘

It’s very cool to be able to listen to the stories, origins & thoughts by a lot of these local rockers that I’ve only seen live or heard from the turntable!
I fully deep dove on this podcast!!
