Random Old Records Podcast #63

It's February 2018 and Valentine's Day was last week. Since love is still in the air and because everybody's got problems in this world, EPISODE #63 of Random Old Records is taking on the twin themes of love and dread. Check out an hour's worth of jams that are hand-picked by a real person, not an algorithm!

Starting off with some classic romantic tunes from Carl Carlton and the Chi-Lites, the episode moves through more love-themed soul classics and a few recent highlights from the Stones Throw label, then drops in some tense indie jangle from The Popguns and brooding rock from Northern Kentucky masters The Light Wires before finishing up with a stack of new post-punk and goth atmospheres. UK rockers Shame are one of the best bands I've heard in awhile, so please do check out their debut LP, Songs Of Praise.
