This podcast has clued me in to some of my current favorite bands - such as Baron, Core and Eternal Elysium. The hosts are consciously modest about their own musical backgrounds but they are influential figures in the Houston scene and underground stoner/psych music generally. As an independent musician playing in a variety of styles myself, it's fascinating to hear musicians talk about what they enjoy in music - the qualities of tone, the invention around and between genre constructs, the nods to influences, the shaping of albums. The artist interviews offer another level by catching up with these various mild mannered geniuses who didn't get all the attention their work deserved, discussing the creative process, band history and what they are doing now.
