Radio Free Hipster Ep. 145: Murder-Minded

I'm really not sure about this one, y'all. I mean, I sometimes have my doubts about individual shows and I personally really dig how this one shook out, but I gots that angst.

Still, I gotta admit it felt good to just throw the thing together, to just start dragging in tracks and slapping them in haphazard order. Maybe it's a little messier than usual—hell, maybe even a tad dissonant at times—but I hope you find something in there you really dig.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
I know you can't hate on this one.

Track 1: YTCracker – "Swygar"
Damn, Rygar had an amazing soundtrack!

Z's 1st interlude: "A rudderless ship."
My first and last solid metaphor of the show.

Track 2: Mikal kHill – "Damien (Morrowind to Cyradiil)"
kHill's buy product drops tomorrow, but I've already heard it. It is excellent, and you should pick it up.

Track 3: Busdriver – "Everyday Oblivion"
"Motherfucking penguin suit!"

Track 4: Phil Retrospector – "Killing Kids"
There were a lot of MGMT mash-ups making the rounds there for a while, but I just happened to find this one sitting on my desktop. No idea how/when it got there.

Track 5: Kirby Krackle – "One More Episode"
KK tend to have pretty solid videos, but this one is truly something special.

Track 6: Alestorm – "That Famous Ol' Spiced"
I started to play some Dethlehem here—I'm going to see those guys in Charlotte again next weekend—but went with pirate metal instead.

Z's 2nd interlude: "Ruining your high."
/glances at Larry

Track 7: Dj Moule – "303 is TNT"
I wanna say this particular bootleg is at least a couple of years old. Kinda surprised I've never played it!

Track 8: Abinox – "Absolute No Give Up"
I couldn't in good conscience not play a song called "Absolute No Give Up."

Track 9: rockleetist – "Laika (English)"
Did this one bring you down? It… it brought me down.

Track 10: Klopfenpop – "Prime Obsession"
Oh course then Klopf picked shit right back up again. With maths.

Z's final interlude: "Protracted crock-pot related analogies."

Track 11: Tribe One – "Midlife Crisis (ft. Adam WarRock)"
I sometimes worry that many don't yet realize what an amazing talent Niles truly is. I really wish he could tour more. And release that goddamn full-length!

Next up is my annual holiday episode, so feel free to hit me up with your yuletide picks. After that comes my year-ender; I've been squirreling away tracks for that one for months. And after that?

A whole new year, my friends. A whole new year.

Great episode!

It's quite a gem, Jimi.

Thanks, Shannon! Glad you dug it. :)

Crock pot for the win. Listened once on the train from home and again on the way back. And the Swygar track was completely new to me! (so were some others, but usually I am not surprised by ytcracker drops)

Yeah, Larry, that was sort of a stealth release. Just caught Bryce mentioning it (To Euge, maybe?) on Twitter and had to include it.
