AKA “The One with Talking.”
Not that I think of my voice as some big draw or anything. I was in a band long enough to know it isn’t. But that’s me on there, and for the first time — possibly the last — I’m introducing tracks and talking about bands and their albums. I tried to keep it to a minimum, and was fairly successful in doing so. I hope you’ll bear with me; it was pretty fucking cold in my office this evening while I was recording my parts.
The theme of this month’s podcast is “The Best of Buried Treasure.” If you find yourself staring at that and wondering, “What the hell is ‘Buried Treasure’ supposed to mean?” then click here. It’s the category under which I post about record shopping, basically, and the places I buy stuff and whatever else might be related to that. I took tracks from releases I’ve posted about since starting this site and made a podcast out of them. Pretty simple.
A little while back, a comment was left somewhere on here that someone had never downloaded a podcast before because there was no speaking on them. It honestly never occurred to me that such a thing might have an appeal, and if it doesn’t to you, I apologize up front for my intrusion and assure you we’ll be back to normal next month. In the meantime, this. I said when I put up the first podcast that I reserved the right to speak over one in the future, so here we are.
To put my blathering aside for a minute, I actually think it’s a really cool mix of songs, and putting myself in, on the level of creating a flow, was an interesting challenge. That’s not to mention the technical concerns, which weren’t so much “a challenge” as “a pain in the ass.” Whatever. It’s done. I hope you enjoy. There’s some bootleg Sabbath and Kyuss, some Saturnalia Temple and Trouble and Fatso Jetson, and a bunch of other cool tracks. The advantage of having the podcast comprised of things I bought and was stoked to write about is that those two qualifications usually mean it’s pretty good.
