Radio Free Hipster Ep. 82: The Voight-Pop Test

Why is it that even my free-form podcasts seem to find their own thematic cohesion?! Is it me? Am I so OCD that I simply can't live in a world where my music isn't connected by gossamer strings of context?

Yeah, probably.

But I hope you'll excuse this predilection and simply dig the show. It is proper diggable.

Download Radio Free Hipster Ep. 82: The Voight-Pop Test [hosting provided by Antisoc] Size: 45.2 MB Running Time: 49:18

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
Pop goes the Spellah, 'cause the Spellh goes pop.

Track 1: Kevin Figueiredo – "Heartless (Rock Remix)"
You've seen this guy, right?!

Z's 1st interlude: "Unlike the last edition, this one is more of a free-form show."
This year the plan is alternate themed and non-themed shows. We'll see how that works out.

Track 2: Rai Kamishiro – "HollowWw"
I'm working on a review of Electric Sheep and Ultraklystron's Romance Language 2. Expect both in February.

Track 3: Maja – "Hollow"
I sometimes wonder how much shit I miss by not watching anime.

Track 4: Chiptots – "Take on Lover"
Right now I'm trying to figure out whether I should do a very late "my favorite songs of 2009" post, or simply try and get permission to include those songs on a downloadable mixtape.

Track 5: Sci-Fried – "Level UP!"
If there is any justice in the world, Sci-Fried will be at Nerdapalooza 2010!

Track 6: Southside – "Wake Up"
I'm still giving this one available for free.

Track 7: Marc with a C – "Drunk Classic Rock Fans"
Speaking of reviews, I should have a write-up of Marc's Retro Lo Fi by month's end.

Z's 2nd interlude: "Ain't it perdy?!"
Shael Riley is the shit.

Track 8: Party Ben – "Poker Face (Just What I Needed)"
My kids love Lady Gaga. How weird is that?

Track 9: My Parents' Favorite Music – "Robit"
R.I.P. MPFM. :(

Track 10: Supercommuter – "Death Math"
Seems like I unwittingly lapsed into a robot-themed mini-set here.

Track 11: nYgel – "World @ Large"
nYgel remains one of my favorite remixers.

Track 12: Blade Runner dialog / John Anealio – "Rachel Rosen"

"My name is Rick Deckard, I'm in my hover car / I'm a bounty hunter for the city".

Z's 3rd interlude: "My collection of mint-in-box Gummi Bears figures."
Sadly, this is a lie.

Track 13: Benjamin Bear – "Bad Romance"
Big ups to MadHatter for turning me on to this one!

This was one of those shows that came together almost effortlessly. So effortlessly, in fact, that it's being released nearly a week ahead of schedule!

Please let me know what you think, and please continue to share the show with your friends. Even without iTunes support, I seem to be gathering a respectable following, and it's completely because of word of mouth.

Thanks so much, y'all!

Are these available on iTunes?

Z. said...

Not directly, Luke, but my RSS feed - http://feeds.feedburner.com/RadioFreeHipster - is iTunes compliant. You can add it manually. :)

Ah Sweet

Maneius said...

Wait.... what happened to MPFM?

Z. said...

Sorry to say, Maneius, that Steffo has decided to retire. Seems like he's just got too much going on in his personal life right now to focus on music. :(

3 days into February.

No reviews.

Rage ;)

Z. said...

Sure, Karl, but that also means I've still got 24 days left to wrap it up. ;)
