BSOTS 126 - Burning Embers (Set The Night...)
Now Playing: Community panel at Comic-Con...
Topic: my podcasts

Every now and then, it's good to clean out the harmonic closet and sweep through those areas of the external hard drive where cuts you have forgotten about are likely to be hiding out. So along with some new pieces, you'll hear some joints from years past that I'm just getting around to along with some underground classics. It all adds up to a blend session that's road trip and barbeque approved. At least I think so. Hopefully you'll say the same...

buckwild's comin'...
Now Playing: a desk fan, the tv from the next room, and a head full of thoughts...
Topic: my podcasts

For those that may not know the deal, allow me to run it down for you.

Radio BSOTS is dedicated to independent and podsafe hip-hop, soul, funk, and electronic music and has been for almost seven years now.  Every now and again, I like to push at the genre boundaries a little bit, get a little more brash and reckless with what I play and rant in front of a microphone.  It's a holdover practice from a show that I used to produce called endless shouting matches with yourself.  There were 16 episodes of that show between 2006 and 2008.  After it podfaded into the sunset, I brought the "no holds barred" aesthetic of endless shouting matches to Camp Lo-Fi and BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD was born.

I get in touch with my inner Prince Paul for those shows.  Prince Paul, Negativland, and Steinski, who has been the biggest influence on me lately whenever I make "buckwild" episodes, but all three hold a special place in my heart.  And so do these shows.  A lot more work goes into them because they don't happen that often.  They are released only when I need a release, whenever I have to blow off some steam.  It's the sonic primal scream that I save for twice a year and I have to say...I'm really proud of these shows.

A new "buckwild" episode will be coming soon.  Not as soon as I would like, mind you, but it's coming.  I can tell you that it starts off with a rant that's been rumbling in my spirit for at least six months and I finally found the words to complete it a few weeks ago.  I can tell you that it will feature rants from the endless shouting matches days.  I can tell you that it will be all over the place musically, as is normally the case with these shows.  And I can tell you that the show is entitled "After The Bridge, Burn The Village."

That will be episode #127, firebombing the Web as soon as possible.  In the meantime, here's a list of the prior "buckwild" shows, beginning with episode #71 back in August of 2008...


BSOTS 071 - BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD...

BSOTS 075 - BGB: rhythms and sounds from the nice part of town...

BSOTS 081 - BGB: as absurd as gourmet pork rinds...

BSOTS 086 - BGB: how i be...

BSOTS 090 - BGB: this is not a game...

BSOTS 100 - BGB: the custserv chronicles (and other tales...)

BSOTS 103 - BGB: Avoiding Explosions Within A Nuclear Summer...

BSOTS 107 - BGB: The Return of the Analog Brother...

BSOTS 114 - BGB: Go Out Swinging...

BSOTS 119 - BGB:  As Far As It Depends On You...

BSOTS 125 - Hooray For The FMA! (vol. 2)
Now Playing: various soft rock tunes, joints by 10cc, and other tunes on the web
Topic: my podcasts

There have been some interesting developments since the Free Music Archive first appeared online some three years ago. Each artist page now comes with suggestions for similar artists within the archive. The FMA has also been blessed with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Every month there's a Tracks To Sync spotlight focusing on tracks set aside for noncommercial video producer use and now the site has started showcasing videos made featuring tracks from that series. If you follow the FMA on Twitter and Facebook or subscribe to their RSS feed, you'll be treated to the MP3 Of The Day, highlighting a selection from their vast archive. It's a great way to learn about new arrivals without feeling bogged down by the sheer volume of tracks within the archive.

So I'm back to finish what I started and put together another mix set of tunes from the FMA, including lots of hip-hop and beat science, some lovely head-nodding hybrids of electronic and rock stylings, some speech excerpts and spoken word, and even closing things out with gospel from the United States and Kenya. Feels like I've been away from the archive for far too long and now I'm in there almost every day looking for new stuff or finding cuts that I missed the first time around. Check the key info below for a link to another FMA mix of mine. Hope you enjoy this one...

Took me long enough to do this one, but all episodes happen in their own time.  No time like the present to celebrate the greatness of the Free Music Archive, which has been live on the Web a little over three years now.  If you haven't checked out this great resource yet, hopefully this mix will give you some incentive to visit the site, download some tunes, and even sign yourself up so you create mixes of your own and share them with others.

BSOTS 120 - Twenty Eleven Favorites, Obsessions, and Earworms (pt. one)
Now Playing: Fishbone - Live in Bordeaux
Topic: my podcasts

If it were already halfway through the year, maybe then I would feel uncomfortable about saying "Happy New Year." However, since we're not even done with the first month yet, I'm going to say it...

Happy New Year.

This year is already shaping up to be amazing musically, but forgive me if I'm still a little stuck on 2011. The amount of sonic spillover from last year could easily fill up this one. And there's always more that I know about, but never get a chance to hear. There's so much more that passes me by these days than I'm able to catch. Surprisingly enough, I'm okay with that. Probably because I know that I hear what I'm meant to hear. Music's cool like that.

No overly long intros. No needlessly extensive liner notes. Not this time. I believe in these artists, these albums, and these songs enough to simply let them speak for themselves.

Fifteen songs now, fifteen songs next episode. It's just a drop in the bucket from last year, but it represents the sounds that stayed with me the most. Hope you enjoy the show.

BSOTS 119 - BGB: As Far As It Depends On You...
Now Playing: Various Artists - Midnight Snacks
Topic: my podcasts

I'm sure that there are many who can look back at 2011 with fond memories and thankful memories. I am not one of those people. I am chomping at the bit for this year to be over.

It bothers me that I am 38 years old and can still find a myriad of things to scream "Screw This" about. The restlessness in my being feels like a guy in a straitjacket kicking at his four padded walls nonstop. I don't know much about a lot, but I know enough to believe that it can't be good to constantly be angry. Maybe that's why I haven't done more than one "buckwild" show prior to this one. At any rate, I need the release and perhaps you do, too.

There's a 25-minute mix that's dedicated to the out of work, the overworked, the "working poor," and anyone who's ever been harrassed by the cops about anything. There's Afrobeat, Swedish jazz fusion, global soul, angry hip-hop, even a little Fishbone in the mix. Should you need to let off a primal scream before 2011 comes to a close, let this show provide the soundtrack to your moment of much-needed catharsis. Happy New Year. All the best to you in 2012.
