Podcast #81, “Selling Out”

selling-out-neonThis whole “doing the podcast in advance” thing is really working out well. I’ve taken to listening to most of my new acquisitions straight-through upon bringing them home or having them show up in the mail, and then immediately dropping the needle on whichever track catches my ear the most. It’s resulting in a record party in the basement kind of vibe, but without the panic and frustration of trying to knock it out the day before everything’s supposed to go up.

That being said, I sourced a lot of this from CDs, mainly because acquiring a lot of this stuff on vinyl would put me in the goddamn poorhouse. Next week’s show is pretty much 100% vinyl, and a little more obscure. I’m considering this a partly-shameless ploy to attract more listeners via bands that might be known outside the usual message board dwellers. I still think they’re some great tracks, though.
