Episode 252: 5/26/2024

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#252’ on it.

This show began with a set of brand new post-punk, darkwave, and synthwave tracks. Then we began the show proper, which was a tribute to the late producer and audio engineer Steve Albini, also of the bands Big Black and Shellac. We played tracks from releases that were recorded, mixed, or produced by Steve Albini, as well as tracks he played on or wrote. Most of it leaned on noise rock and no wave, along with a bit of post-punk, and we closed the show with a set of post-rock, experimental, etc.
