Goddamn! 2012 is less than two months old, and there's already so much kick-ass rock n' roll coming out that it's making my head spin! So yeah, this time around, Random Old Records Podcast #40 is an uninterrupted hour of straight-up jams, because there just wasn't any room for the quirky soundbytes you all know and love. HAHA. This fat stack of tracks features one song each from the latest batch of HoZac Records releases, including The Band In Heaven, Radar Eyes, Teledrome, and Bare Mutants, which all rule as usual. Teledrome's super-catchy electro-punk is the real gem this time around. Seriously, give this dude a proper studio and budget and he'll be on the cover of magazines in a year. Mark my words!
Random Old Records #40 also features an EXCLUSIVE track from the upcoming second LP by killer Wisconsin garage punk duo The Hussy! It's called "Mind Alright," the LP is called Weed Seizure, and it's set to be released by Tic Tac Totally sometime next month. This record is a monster folks, just check out the sick artwork by Ben Lyon below! Elsewhere, you'll hear BRAND NEW tracks from upcoming releases by The Sugar Stems, Digital Leather, and Terry Malts, current tunes by Coasting, Gap Dream, Wiccans, The Pharmacy, and Gary Wrong, classics from the Angry Samoans and Teengenerate, and more, more, MORE!!! It all finishes up with a modern classic pop tune from former Lost Sounds and River City Tanlines frontwoman Alicja-Pop that will shake you up good if you're paying attention. This is one of my favorite episodes I've coughed up in awhile, so I hope y'all dig it!
Also, has it really been a month since the last time I updated this blog? I've been writing full-force for Get Bent, running my nascent label, and working like a beast, so unfortunately the Random Old Records blog has suffered. But never fear! I'll be updating this shit a lot more in the upcoming weeks, including expanded versions of my Get Bent reviews and plenty of other new stuff. Also, look for my label's second release soon, the crucial second album from Cincinnati psychedelic garage rockers The Harlequins! As always, thanks so much for reading and listening. Hope spring will be here sooner instead of later!
