It's show ten! Double digits! This week we'll explore metal, played acoustically at high speeds or with cellos (accompanied by a tall Japanese man on electric guitar), classic blues, experimental music from Brazil, Russian rock, a new song from my boys in Wingenfelder over in Germany, and many more things indeed. Let's get busy!

This week, we've got some leftovers from show 8 as well as a whole slew of new stuff, including Portugese prog-dub, Israeli pop, Ozarkian soundscapes, Croatian cowpunk, Japanese post-rock/math-rock, gospel-esque rap/rock, acid jazz and some Bay Area locals. Welcome to new comers - you should consider going back and catching up on older episodes, but it isn't necessary for enjoyment. To my faithful stalwarts, let's carry on!
(Happy Birthday, Christy!)
From August 26th to August 30th, I lived my own little version of "Grosse Point Blank." Yes, I went back to Omaha for my 20 year class reunion, against all better judgment, and came out feeling pretty okay about the trip. So this is, perhaps, a show that offers a little more insight into your host, but also does it through a musical journey, and will give you an idea of what the Midwest was like in the year 1995. I tell stories about friends and adversaries, and, most importantly, we play a lot of great tunes, both from that time period and outside of it.
This mix goes out to anyone who ever went to high school, but especially to those of Omaha Central High class of 1995. Enjoy the flashbacks.
On this week's episode, we dabble in music from all sorts of genres - grebo, psytrance, high-speed post rock, techno comedy, neo-soul, acid jazz and more... We'll get music from half a dozen countries, and expose you to a bunch of people most likely new to your particular palatte. It's episode #7, "I'm Pretty Big In Tokyo!"
