Music is becoming a cheaper and cheaper commodity to the point where it's nearly worthless. Physical copies are slipping into irrelevance and MP3s are easily obtainable for free. It's high time to we make the pendulum to swing in the other direction and force music to be heard as high art rather than disposable fodder.
I'm afraid this edition the podcast is being posted a week later than originally scheduled/planned due to circumstances in my professional life well beyond my control. However, since I'm not attending this SXSW fest (conference? showcase? synergetic business opportunity?) in Austin this week for the umpteenth consecutive year, you get to hear a collection of new music (and reissues) presented in a succinct, non-overwhelming capacity that will not leave you with an STD.
