I've written dozens of these little blog posts hyping my latest podcast, so what more can I say at this point? Random Old Records #47 has got the jams, an hour of them to be exact. It's got classics by Nada Surf, The Posies, and Teenage Fanclub, brand new ones by Morgan Delt, Tony Molina, and California X. There's some of the most vital punk rock going these days from Life Stinks and Cheap Time. There's fuzzy, giddy powerpoppunkrock from First Base and Backseat Virgins. There's sleek synth jams from Minks and Gap Dream. There's some downright offensive commercials from 70s TV. There's also MUCH, MUCH MORE!
If you look below, you can see I also have yet another host for streaming Random Old Records, called Mixcloud. If you notice, there's a lot of busted streaming links on the blog because Official.fm went crazy one day and decided that I needed to provide them with written proof that I owned the copyrights to everything I uploaded, even podcasts! This was after I paid for a premium account and was promised that podcasts were protected like EVERY OTHER STREAMING SITE. So, they deleted everything (and didn't refund my fucking money). Bummer, huh?? Soundcloud ain't bad, but they limit free accounts by number of minutes uploaded. 2 hours = 2 podcasts, so that clearly doesn't work for me. Mixcloud seems to be awesome, and even allows timestamping the track list into the stream. Hopefully it lasts!
As always, thanks SO MUCH for listening, reading, subscribing, buying my tapes, following me on Twitter and Facebook, and sticking with me throughout my various hiatuses over the last few years. It means more than you can imagine. I'm not quite ready to bring back regular posts or monthly podcasts, but never say never!
