Podcast #21 – Half Strength

half-fullSo, I give you an archive podcast last week, and then I come back with an episode that’s only half an hour long, and six songs shorter than it usually is. And I wonder why listenership is so low. Yeah, this week’s episode is only nine songs, and a lot more talking than usual. It’s a garage rock special, with an emphasis on folks that played this past weekend’s Scion Garage Fest in downtown Lawrence. You can read my review over at Wayward Blog, but it doesn’t begin to explain the fun this was. If you get a chance to attend it next year, no matter where it is, go. You won’t be disappointed.

Next week’s podcast has lots and lots of new stuff, as well as new-to-me stuff, so I promise an extra-long episode to make up for this week’s shortness. Really, I just didn’t want to shoehorn in a bunch of thrash and skate punk after all that power pop and garage, so I decided to cut one episode short and lengthen another. It’ll all even out eventually, right?
