Free Musics For You!

Music Talk 22 Feb

This is a post from Aaron’s Radio Gen1us site, archived here. The following is the text of his original post. We’ve started a new format on Radio Gen1us.  We’re not ditching our mixtapes — but we’re trying to be a bit more regular about podcasting.  Quite frankly, doing a discussion format is a lot easier…

Jim’s favorite albums of 2009

This is my best of 2009 mix, containing samples from my 20 favorite albums of the last year.  I’m not a professional music critic and I don’t listen to every album ever released by any means, so I’m sure there are plenty of holes, and if you’d like to tell me an album I missed,…

May The Road Rise To Meet You

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Well it isn’t St. Patrick’s Day yet of course, but it’s coming up, today is the Saturday before, and I’ll wager many of you are already enjoying the holiday cheer. I’m more ignorant of my Irish heritage than I’d wish to be, but there isn’t anybody left to teach it to…

There And Back Again

This is a chill mix. This is not a chillout mix. This is a journey from light to dark and light again, in the vein of last year’s mix for staring out of train windows, only this time there isn’t a train, there’s just you and the music and a dark place inside yourself. shoegazy…

The Road Most Traveled

Just your basic mix of cover songs. Ska covers! Bluegrass covers! Metal covers! Punk covers! I know, it’s been done, but dammit it’s MY TURN. It was brought to my attention though that on a few of these, the original songs may be less well known, so I’ve created a second mix containing the same…

Jim’s favorite albums of 2008 (MMVIII CE MF)

My Best Albums of 2008 Show! These are the albums I have decided are the best albums that a) I’ve listened to, b) have an official 2008 release date, and c) are full-length LPs, not EPs or compilations. Since I listen to a broad variety of music, some of the segues are a little jarring.…

When churchyards yawn, and Hell itself breathes out

 Halloween is almost upon us.  As is the mode of our society, the day has become a celebration of consumer culture, with cheap plastic costumes filling the shelves at your local walmart, children begging for whatever character is at the top of the Nickelodeon pyramid this year.   But in the same way that many…

You Don’t Have To Call Me Darlin’, Darlin’

  Way back in the day, a bunch of kids thought rock and roll was boring and started playing some super fast, sloppy, but extremely catchy rock and roll and breathed new life into a music scene that kept throwing different repackaged versions of the same 3 bands at the music consuming public. That music…

Don’t Dance Near The Chemicals!

Alright. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I have a few in the works, an alt-country mix, a show about great drumming performances, some others. But they are still unformed. Today I had an epiphany. I just want to rock your faces off, that’s all. So I put together this mix.…

IRON DJ: No, let’s just be enemies!

…in which I take you on a sonic adventure through the beginning, end, and aftermath of a trainwreck relationship. No one relationship in particular, I’ve been married so long I don’t remember any others, really. 🙂 But this is a mix that not only progresses through a series of moods but which also purports to…
