We Hit Our Podcast Host Limit

I attempted to upload the next episode of our podcast and got a message from our hosting service telling us that we’re out of space. Many thanks to our current podcast host for the helpful advice that this was about to happen… Oh wait, there was no fucking warning at all that this was about to happen! What this means: the show won’t have a podcast for a while. We’re going to look at the options and figure out how to go forward.

We started this episode with a set of new darkwave and post-punk tracks. The second block was a set of goth and post-punk tracks. The third block was a set of weirdo noise tracks. The fourth set was a block of industrial, darkwave, and metal. The fifth block was a set of dark ambient tracks, and the final set was a set of experimental tracks. And because this show aired on Easter Sunday, many of the tracks had an underlying theme of springtime, rebirth, resurrection, renewal, etc.

We played some experimental and musique concrète tracks by a few of the lesser-known pioneers of electronic music in the fifth block, and we finished the show with mix of shoegaze and ambient.
