Hey Matt!
KFAI 10:20:30 PM
How's your week going Matt?
Matthew Gurrola 10:22:33 PM
Pretty good. Putting together a playlist for the Root this weekend. I'll be on with Muench.
Uncle Joey 10:22:51 PM
This cart is wild. Lol
Uncle Joey 10:23:02 PM
How is everyone?
Matthew Gurrola 10:23:46 PM
I want what the cart crew is smoking.
KFAI 10:25:57 PM
That CART should get deleted
KFAI 10:26:39 PM
Very cool, Matt!
KFAI 10:26:47 PM
Hi Joe!
Uncle Joey 10:27:29 PM
lol no way! I love that cart. You should only ever play that one from now on!
Uncle Joey 10:27:59 PM
in seriousness, how is everyone?
Lydia Stark 10:29:16 PM
iโ€™m back at work, which is great! so iโ€™d say iโ€™m pretty alright this week. how about everyone else?
KFAI 10:31:00 PM
I'm doing great.
Joshua Decker 10:31:25 PM
Hails! \m/
KFAI 10:31:41 PM
Hails Decker!
Joshua Decker 10:34:14 PM
Killer tuna
Joshua Decker 10:35:20 PM
Swooped on a couple tape colorways on this one.
Uncle Joey 10:40:50 PM
I feel like I've really slept on Hum. Super similar vibes to Failure.
Uncle Joey 10:42:53 PM
Also, since we're on a run of heavy rock stuff, could I throw down a request for some Town Portal? Maybe Archright off "Of Violence"?
KFAI 10:43:09 PM
You haven't slept on them, haven't released anything since 1998!
Lydia Stark 10:43:23 PM
it was definitely a good pick
Uncle Joey 10:44:07 PM
Hahaha well, I guess slept on them in the sense that I can't believe I haven't listened to them more. Failure is one of my favorite bands and they went like 20 years before reforming and releasing new music also.
Uncle Joey 10:44:25 PM
That was a real treat, since they were still disbanded when I first found them.
Uncle Joey 10:45:08 PM
Oh shit. That was a hell of a switcheroo y'all pulled there.
Lydia Stark 10:46:10 PM
weโ€™re quirky like that
Uncle Joey 10:47:57 PM
And that's what we love about you.
Joshua Decker 10:57:33 PM
"Isolated Dumping Grounds" from Obscene?
Joshua Decker 10:57:50 PM
Bought the cassette, super good.
Joshua Decker 10:58:09 PM
New Changeling, too!
KFAI 10:58:55 PM
New Obscene is sick!
Uncle Joey 11:01:09 PM
This is pretty solid. Not my favorite vocal style with the kinda speak-singing deal, but it's solid.
KFAI 11:01:20 PM
Yeah, it was a decent song.
Uncle Joey 11:01:59 PM
Sounds a bit commercial, but that's not bad in and of itself.
Uncle Joey 11:02:42 PM
Rework the vocals just a bit and I could see it featured in a film or used in that sort of way.
KFAI 11:05:52 PM
Uncle Joey 11:06:48 PM
Digging the new Motion Mosaic. When did this drop?
Uncle Joey 11:08:56 PM
I think this is the first time I've put in a sub 5 minute request in a long while. Hahaha
KFAI 11:09:13 PM
It dropped in early 2020
Uncle Joey 11:11:30 PM
Gotcha. Must have been sometime around when we did ours and I wasn't paying attention to anything else. Haha
Uncle Joey 11:14:27 PM
Wait, nevermind. Wrong song from that album. My streak of obnoxiously long requests continues!
Uncle Joey 11:16:38 PM
mixed that up with the song Veyshnorians for some reason. Titles are hard with instrumental bands.
Matthew Gurrola 11:17:35 PM
How about Goatwhore - Alchemy of the Black Sun Cult
KFAI 11:17:42 PM
No worries, I faded it out at 5 minutes....
KFAI 11:18:00 PM
and I didn't even realize it was instrumental...LOL
KFAI 11:18:22 PM
Matt - great song!!!
Matthew Gurrola 11:19:16 PM
Hopefully we get some new Exodus with Holt soon.
Uncle Joey 11:20:36 PM
Yeah, Town Portal is one of those instrumental bands that always manages to keep things moving melodically in a way that keeps you from noticing the lack of vocals.
Lydia Stark 11:24:23 PM
everyoneโ€™s got great requests tonight...we love you guys
Uncle Joey 11:26:44 PM
Thanks for playing them! I love how eclectic and wide-spanning this show is! You all do such an amazing job!
Lydia Stark 11:27:22 PM
which we couldnโ€™t do without you, obviously
KFAI 11:27:15 PM
Aw, shucks! *blushes*
KFAI 11:27:21 PM
Thanks Joe!
KFAI 11:36:15 PM
That CART made up for the other one.
Matthew Gurrola 11:36:49 PM
Need to make a stoner metal cart.
Lydia Stark 11:49:23 PM
you should write the script!
Matthew Gurrola 11:50:22 PM
Or the Glorth host.
Lydia Stark 11:50:33 PM
i think youโ€™re onto something!
KFAI 11:57:58 PM
Thanks for listening everyone!
Matthew Gurrola 11:58:00 PM
See ya \m/
