Freakshow! – 1/21/10

January 22, 2010


Apparently all we wanted to do this week is rock, so our second episode of the season is a little more heavy on the punk angle than usual.  But if you think we’re simply being a one-trick-pony here, you’ve obviously never listened to a Freakshow! before, as we’ve still got a ton of amazing music carefully assembled to prove that this “harmonious dissonance” thing we’re always going on about isn’t just annoying marketing term!  Furthermore, we guarantee that if you don’t learn something new about at least one of the songs or bands in this show, then you’ve either listened to this episode live and heard all this before or are actually Freakman John!  If it’s the latter is the case, he would like you to kindly get out of his head, thanks.

    any particular reason the file was bigger this week?

    Aside from this week’s episode being a couple minutes longer, last week’s episode was encoded at 64kbps. This week’s episode – and all subsequent episodes going forward – is encoded at 80kbps. I decided that the markedly better sound quality (in my opinion) of the higher encoding option was worth an extra 15 megs.
