Radio Free HipsterEp. 135: Beach Blanket Lingo

I figure with the Independence Day holiday week coming up for us Yanks, many of y'all are likely looking for something new to listen to. Thus this podcast. It's a distinctly summer-centered affair, and I'm right happy with the way it came out. I hope y'all dig it too.

Not gonna lie; I've been jamming to it all week.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
If I ran a summer camp for lovable misfits, these guys'd be my counselors.

Track 1: Select Start – "Color of the Summer Sky"
I don't generally start the show with an instrumental, but this one's so tight I made an exception.

Z's 1st interlude: "The price you pay to ride the music train with me."
Even I don't know what the hell this means.

Track 2: Solid Bold – "Summertime Loving, Loving in the Summer (Time)"
I love me some Regular Show.

Track 3: Teleidofusion – "Summer Mood"
Have I played this track before? I swear I have, but, once again, Google disagrees.

Track 4: Friday dialog / Adam WarRock – "Maybe (I Can Call You?)"
Mock me if you will, but "Call Me Maybe" is an exquisite pop song.

Track 5: Girl Talk – "Smash Your Head"
I was kind of in the mood for some Biggie. And also some Elton John.

Track 6: Slime Girls – "Vacation Wasteland"
Another fine freebie from Pterodactyl Squad.

Track 7: Doctor Popular – "Bad as They Seem (feat. Unwoman)"
I was actually pretty excited when I realized I wasn't the only person who remembered this one.

Track 8: Swamp Thing – "123"
A fitting introduction to Canada's three-headed musical beast.

Z's 2nd interlude: "While we're gettin' all Canadian up in here."
Related note: I am supporting Team Canada in this summer's Olympic Quidditch action.

Track 9: Teletran – "Beachwave"
Who knew what this song was missing was a dash of "Blue Monday?"

Track 10: Inverse Phase – "Atarible Lie"
Pretty Eight Machine is the first project to make me intentionally listen to anything Nine Inch Nails-related in years.

Track 11: POCKETMAN – "Just a Summer Drizzle"
K.K. Slider is my dawg. #seewhatididthere

Track 12: Nuclear Bubble Wrap – "Hulkulele"
Another nice tie-in to the summer's first true super hero blockbuster.

Z's final interlude: "This slice of warm-weather fun."
I'm not saying you have to play this podcast at your next barbecue. But, y'know, if you want too…

Track 13: Lager Rhythms – "Your Horoscope for Today"
The Twenty-Six and a Half Weird Al tribute is still in heavy rotation on my end.

It sorta seems this show is a continuation of the previous episode. And I'm fine with that. Occasionally we delve the darker side of geeky music around here, so if I'm lead to keep shit positive for a whole month I reckon that's a good thing.

As always, I appreciate your thoughts on the show, not to mention your song suggestions. So call me, maybe. I mean, uh, hit me up, okay?

Thanks for the summer music fix Z! Color of the Summer Sky by Select Start is delightful. Once again you've provided a great venue for artists I likely wouldn't have discovered elsewhere. Thanks so much!

Yeah, that seemed like the perfect jumping-off point for the show, Shannon. Glad you agree!
