The Unblinking Ear Podcast 10/17/13

Another CMJ week. Another year where I don't get a badge despite spending pretty much my entire adult life on the periphery of the music "biz."

Though my lack of badge something of badge of honor at this point. I can always say that one's ability to secure a CMJ pass is inversely proportioned to his or her taste in music (which is only slightly inaccurate). Also, most the "must-see" CMJ events are awful experiences, overstuffed with the desperate to impress and the generally clueless, who will suck the fun out of the room and make you second guess how much you really liked the musical act you are witnessing in the first place.

I can pretty guarantee that the below podcast will be a more rewarding experience than nearly every NYC area show the week of CMJ.

There are, however, exceptions.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 10/3/13

Here's the first Unblinking Ear Podcast in just under a month. Unfortunately, we had to skip our semi-annual "punkquinox" edition of the punkcast that was due around two weeks ago. In hindsight, in probably would have made a good soundtrack for one to be enraged by the failures of capitalist democracy. However, this latest edition is still pretty good and a better alternative to shooting someone.
