Podcast #126, “Subhumanoid Meltdown”

subhumanoid meltdown header
Somehow, I lost the cable which connects the soundboard to my computer, so I was forced to dig out the old USB microphone in order to back announce. The positive is that I managed to relate some really good information, while the negative is that the audio volume fluctuates quite a good deal. I did my best to mitigate, but we’ll have to see what you all think. The music’s good, at least.

Podcast #125, “Dim Light of Winter”

The first podcast of the new year finds us giving up more information about the music you hear. It’s a mixed bag, because it means there’s more talking, but you get a better idea of where these cuts come from and information about the artists who perform, which is a pretty good trade for having to listen to me ramble on longer than usual.

If you like what I play on the podcast and want to hear it live, I’ll be on KJHK 90.7FM on Tuesday, January 13, from 9:00am-noon, Central Standard Time. You can click on the link to stream it live, or hear it over the air, if you’re within the wattage range in eastern Kansas. I’ll be spinning new wave, horror disco, and assorted sounds to make you dance your Tuesday away.

Podcast #124, “Boo Hoo”

Sitting around, being a sad bastard — despite four days off work, time in front of the TV, plenty of books, good food, and even exercise. I have no idea what has me in such a shit mood, but here’s to hoping the music sounds better than my attitude.

I mean, it does. Several year-end favorites make the list, as well as some new discoveries. So, yeah … Happy New Year, I guess?

Podcast #122, “Holiday Hangover”

It’s so very cold, I’m so very busy, and these songs have been sitting, waiting for someone to do something with them for so very long. It’s a mix of film score and assorted other instrumental bits, pieced together to sooth you after a weekend chock full of family, hectic shopping, and food.

Podcast #121, “Can’t Feel Things”

It’s super-duper cold outside here in the Midwest, meaning it’s time to hunker down in the basement with wool socks and enough coffee to drown a small child. The songs are a bit slower, a bit sadder, and a bit darker, but I think you’ll agree that they’re quite wonderful.

New music from the Kansas City Bear Fighters and Death to Tyrants, as well as a trip through the vinyl stacks with recent acquisitions and rediscovered favorites, makes this installment of Sunglasses After Dark a lovely start to your week, wherever you may be.

Podcast #120, “Psychedelic Sounds”

After a brief break for that excellent (if I do say so myself) Halloween mix, we’re back with the regular Sunglasses After Dark podcast. We discuss some recent shows, showcase some new releases, and hip you to what’s coming soon. If ever there were a build to a podcast’s sound, this would be it — we start out rather mellow, and just go until we’re blasting your brain through your eardrums.

Podcast #119, “Play the Bones”

It’s Halloween next week, and I’ve a fantastic mix of creepy music for you. There’s some soundtrack pieces, some creepy tracks from electronic musicians, and a few movie trailers to get you in the mood. I keep my mouth shut, and you get a solid hour of uncomfortability. We’ll be back in two weeks with a standard mix of new tunes.

Podcast #118, “Such Newness”

New Arrival Logo
The Halloween Horror Marathon is taking up an awful lot of my time, so I almost didn’t do a podcast, but I had a stack of new stuff I wanted to share, so I did a short nine songs. They’re all really great, and I highly recommend this installment of Sunglasses After Dark. The new episode will be an hour-long horror / sci-fi / instrumental mix for the holiday, and I’ve been crafting that sucker for months now, so expect to have your mind blow in two weeks.

Podcast #116, “Short and Frickin’ Sweet”

munchkin cat
Maybe it’s due to a lengthy week, with a lot of mileage in it. Maybe it’s due to the weather, which went from hot and humid to rainy to seasonally-appropriate. Maybe it’s because I drank a can of FourLoko last night, got spectacularly drunk in a very short period of time, and then immediately crashed at 10:00pm.

Who’s to say? All I know is that there’s a shorter set of tunes than usual, but they’re absolutely rock-solid.
