Not like the reveal is any big surprise, but I’m still really excited about posting the January podcast. It’s not even that it’s the first of 2011, or, that as the 12th, it marks a full year since I did the first audiObelisk Transmission — which also had an octopus banner — but just because of all of them, this has the best flow yet. One track to the next, it’s smooth in a way I’ve been trying to achieve but haven’t quite until now. I hope you agree and I hope you enjoy.
We’ve already covered 2010 to death, and a simple flip through the blog pages will show that. I have more to come, but in terms of wrapping up the audio side of it, I tried to jam as much as possible into this podcast. Like last month’s, it’s 31 songs, although with the inclusion of tracks like Aquilonian‘s half-hour-long “Symphonica de Levita” from their split with Sollubi, it stretches a full 45 minutes longer, all the way to three hours, 50 minutes. Like 2010 was, it’s a monster.
I don’t know about you, but I think what I’m going to do one day at work this week is download this podcast and play it right in a row with the last one. It’s nearly a full seven hours between them, and as the soundtrack to a day of office-dwelling, I know it’s time well spent. Just a suggestion.
Things get a little off-kilter toward the end, getting into stuff like Les Discrets and Alcest, Crippled Black Phoenix and Master Musicians of Bukkake, and though there’s some hits up front from big names like Earthride, Melvins and Monster Magnet, make sure you don’t miss the Clamfight track, as it’s a personal favorite, along with Droids Attack and Samsara Blues Experiment. Like I said, I really do believe it’s the best podcast yet.
