48 More Fangirl Flail

Finally, after re-recording this episode three times, I bring you the ultimate in fangirl flail...A look at my trip to the UK to see Garbage four times. Yes, there is something wrong with me. There are several Garbage songs on this episode, mostly live soundboard recordings, along with music from UK tour openers The Jezabels from Sydney. I also play brand new music from GoFight, Lunic, Icon of Coil and Blindness, a band I have recently falling in love with. And if you're looking for some North American tour news, look no farther - there are a few fall tours besides Garbage that I'm pretty excited about. [Download]

032 I'd Like Some Violin with My Beats, Please

I'm a violinist and lately I've been playing more than usual, so I thought it would be fun to do a show that features my main instrument, the violin. All songs on this episode have violin parts, but most of the tracks I've chosen are more up tempo or rock oriented rather than quite and contemplative. This set list most certainly won't be lulling you to sleep. I also unveil a brand new segment tentatively titled "That's What I Like About You". During this segment, I introduce Panzer AG song "When I Am You" and give my take on what's really cool musically about this song. [Download]

022 My 2010 In Music

I take a look back at some of the music that defined 2010 for me personally. Some tracks were released in 2010, some tracks are from bands that were new to me in 2010 and some tracks were chosen because they define a memorable time for me. Thanks go out to everyone who helped during 2010 in any way with the creation of the show... from listening to spreading the word to sending feedback to joining me for an interview to creating amazing music and everything in between. I look forward to even better things in 2011. [Download]

It's a NIN sandwich! I start and end the show with tracks from the newly remastered Pretty Hate Machine.

I discuss the song Sober by Lunic at length, Fabryka Magazine and their latest podcast, and two groups I've recently been involved with - the Department of Evil and Kilted Farmer Presents. As always, if you like what you hear, please support the bands and buy their music. [Download]
