So, I’ve been getting into a lot of podcasts..
What usually happens is this: I’ll click on a podcast, hope for the best, and be disappointed, and then irritated, and then angry, and then hungry.
NOT THIS TIME, FUCKERS!
TrainWreckers is a dope podcast based out of Portland. When these dudes talk about electronic music, you can tell they know what they’re talking about. They rant articulately about music they’re diggin… music they’re NOT diggin… and actually, the latter is my favorite part. There’s been a revolution in electronically-produced music, which means there has been a lot of great music to come out – but even more TERRIBLE music… Obviously, that’s a natural process sometimes; the frustrating part, however, is that the worst electronic music tends to get way more hype than it deserves, both from un-knowledgeable musicians as well as from the Old Guard of culture, who knows nothing about good music but still pulls the levers and operates the machinery to jam bad music down all of our poor and unsuspecting throats..
In the newest episode (they’re on their fifth, as of yesterday) they talk about the Al Walser Grammy controversy, as well as bring on special guest, PwnTony (AKA The Starpilot). It is a good, long podcast, and it really is great to throw on and chill out to. I recommend the shit out of it!
Here’s a write-up I found on GHF, by KidLogic (one of the founding members of the podcast):
We’ve got a new talk podcast about “underground” music – hip hop, house, juke, footwork, trap, dubstep… and everything that relates.
