Radio Free Hipster Ep. 132: One Foot in the Queso

I got them new hits, son! And, okay, maybe one slightly old hit, but still.

Judging by the recent output, spring is apparently a great artistic motivator for most folks. (My lazy ass being the obvious exception.) We've hit another one of those plateaus wherein everyone either has recently released a new project or is preparing too, so this should serve to point you toward a handful of my favorites.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah - "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
I still marvel at the fact that I have my own theme song.

Track 1: Tribe One - "I'm Kind of a Big Deal"
As I understand it, Tribe has never ordered a kid's meal.

Z's 1st interlude: "My favorite song right now."
That's my (current) jam!

Track 2: MisCast - "Thunderbrat Blues"
The "Thundercats ho" bit is played out, and yet totally relevant in this case.

Track 3: Marc with a C - "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone"
This is sort of the ultimate cover song.

Track 4: Wordburglar - "Rhyme O'Clock (feat. More or Les)"
Allow me to pimp the video for this one once again.

Track 5: Pokemon vs. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - "Gotta Make 'em all Evil"
This one came compliments of noted brony AlienBobZ. That fact likely doesn't surprise you.

Track 6: John Anealio - "The Empire State"
This is actually part of a broader world-building project.

Track 7: Pogo - "BooBass"
Kinda makes you wanna watch Monsters, Inc. again, right?

Z's 2nd interlude: "Which might be the best song title ever."
Thanks, Brooks!

Track 8: Ultraklystron - "3 Dollar Jeans (feat. Rai Kamishiro)"
Lyrically this among the album's weaker selections, but I love the bright and snappy production.

Track 9: Adventure Time dialog / The Efts - "Andrew Treat Does Everything Right"
The Efts come through with another endearing little ditty.

Track 10: More Adventure Time dialog / Videogame Orchestra - "Prince of Darkness"
This Carpenter tribute is pretty amazing.

Track 11: Supercommuter - "Unusual Habits (Hanssen Remix)"
Because you can never have too many Supercommuter remixes.

Z's final interlude: "A disproportionate number of songs containing the word 'vagina.'"
A phenomenon I'm sure I have mentioned before.

Track 12: Sulfur - "My Mama Is A G"
This is another one I've been sitting on for months. Mother's Day seemed like an ideal time to bust it out.

Wow, there was a lot of synth in this episode. More than usual even.

It's always weird for me to listen to a show and find little unintentional consistencies like that.

Thanks for including us in this episode, Z! We're honored. Having intro/outro action by some Adventure Time dialogue was an added pleasure. Also, 3 Dollar Jeans is stuck so deep in my head it hurts. Thanks for sharing some great new tunes!
