    A Conversation with Oxymorrons (Part 2)

    A Conversation with Oxymorrons (Part 2)

    This week, we're scratching The Itch... to learn. We had a great time laughing in the first part of our interview with the most electrifying band in alt entertainment, Oxymorrons. The laughs continue in the second half, but the conversation takes some turns into rich discussions about performance vs authenticity, the "freedom" of social media, the struggle of being a POC band, and existence as resistance. If you're down with a crash course in Justice 101, this episode is for you. And if you're not down with that... Degeneration-oX has two words for ya.

    Check out these dudes on all the socials @oxymorrons, and give their new EP, Mohawks & Durags, like 800 more spins!

    A Conversation with Oxymorrons (Part 1)

    A Conversation with Oxymorrons (Part 1)

    This week, we're scratching The Itch to be outnumbered! We're kicking off the new year and the new season with our first ever interview... with an entire band. Oxymorrons are a four-piece alternative band from Queens, and they bring as much energy to a conversation as they do to the stage. Tune in for an incredibly fun conversation that includes anime, nicknames, guilt trips, Chuck Berry, a $9 orange juice, and a pizza that looked like Texas... and this is just part one! Pull up... keep up if you can!

    Check out these dudes on all the socials @oxymorrons, and give their new EP, Mohawks & Durags, like 800 spins!

    12 Pods of Christmas: She Will Rock You

    12 Pods of Christmas: She Will Rock You

    It's time for the second annual Itch 12 Pods of Christmas, wherein we shout out some of our favorite podcast friends and direct you, the listener, to a pair of episodes from across our shows to keep you entertained through the holiday season. We're very grateful for the kindness and camaraderie shown by the Twitter podcast community. One of the most exciting shows we've encountered is She Will Rock You. Leah and Bethanne do a fun and fascinating job of exploring the music industry, emerging artists, and particularly the women involved within. You can find She Will Rock You on the Twitters @shewillrockupod.

    We recommend listening to their recent concert experiences seeing Des Rocs and In This Moment, respectively, and pairing that with our episode discussing new albums from Des Rocs and Ded, which has a connection to In This Moment that causes us to go off the rails in this recording.

    And hey, when you're done with all of that, follow our New Rock Roundup playlist and then connect with us!
