Audiofeed Preview: The Prettybads

In preparation for the upcoming Audiofeed Festival, I investigated a few of the bands that I was not familiar with. And I discovered an awesome female-led punkish ban, The Prettybads.

Their debut album has a bunch of great songs on it, including a theme song. It's hard to bead a band that has a theme song. Looking forward to seeing these guys play live at the fest.

Audiofeed Preview: Jericho Harlot

In preparation for the upcoming Audiofeed Festival, I investigated a few of the bands that I was not familiar with. And I discovered one I really dig, The Jericho Harlot, a post-punk band out of the Midwest. 

Their album "Salt & Light" has a number of good songs on it, including one of the title songs, "Salt." Looking forward to seeing these guys play live at the fest.

Audiofeed Preview: At The Wayside

In preparation for the upcoming Audiofeed Festival, I investigated a few of the bands that I was not familiar with. And I discovered a cool one, At the Wayside, a energetic post-punk band out of the Upper Midwest. 

Here is a video of their song "Drown Us Out." Looking forward to seeing these guys play live at the fest.

Audiofeed 2018: Preview

As we do every other year, we are again this year heading to the excellent Audiofeed Festival. This is the "successor" to the defunct Cornerstone Festival, but with the great advantage of being hours closer to us!

This year's festival has a number of regular acts that we are looking forward to hearing again, including Must Build Jacuzzi, Marah in the Mainsail (we talked about their album "Thaumatrope" on episode 15 of the podcast), Comrades, and Insomniac Folklore. But there are new bands (or at least new to us) we're looking forward to seeing as well, such as The Prettybads, At the Wayside and Dezorah.

Audiofeed is not just about the bands, of course. There are speakers, worship, The Asylum goth tent, and the book and movie discussions at the Imaginoplis, And of course, Harry Gore busking by the food court.

Really looking forward.

Podcast Suggestion: The Antidote

Where has this podcast been my whole life? Despite having over 300 episodes, this show has only recently come to my attention.I have found a handful of decent Christian music shows over the years, but few have lasted this long, or are still producing new content.

The point of this show is that yes, most Christian music sucks, but this podcast serves as ... the antidote for all of that. Maybe the fact that it is based out of Canada keeps the show from being "infected" the industry. The show focuses on hard rock, metal and punk, although some alternative and singer-songwriter artists have been featured, as well.

The antidote comes out weekly, and can be streamed at the show's website, or listened to after the fact via any podcast player.

Recent episodes include discussions with bands such as Must Build Jacuzzi, Remedy Drive, Church Tongue and Chasing Victory. It is a great show, and the only good thing about just recently discovering it, is that I have hundreds of episodes to catch up on.
