At least four people have been clamoring over themselves for the past few months waiting for this to drop. I’m happy to say the day has finally come.
I tried to cover mostly new ground, and you’ll notice that very few of these songs have been played on the show before. I included a few of the jams I’ve dropped on the blog over the past few months to refresh the memory of regulars and expose first-timers to something new. The inclusion of PrototypeRaptor is a bit of an indulgence; it’s a dubstep cover of the famous Zelda Underworld theme by Koji Kondo. Questions about how Japanese it really is abound, but that’s the point, isn’t it?
There’s a lot going on here including some really bizarre experimentation re: “hosting the show” (NOTE: Lots of swearing and general fuckery this episode, so put the kids to bed before playing it out loud). The selection is a bit all over the map, but I think it holds together for the most part. Download link and playlist below. Enjoy!!
