Episode 39 - with guest Don Anderson (Agalloch, Sculptured) - Curated by Mirai Kawashima (Sigh)

January 6, 2020

Mirai Kawashima and Sigh have been pushing, dare I say, smashing the paradigms within metal for decades.  From their early days on Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions to their most recent album "Heir to Despair," Sigh has found comfort in the dark seeping underbelly of music.  

I asked Mirai to provide some music to share with my cohort Don Anderson.  Music that has intrigued him, confused him, provoked him or perhaps inspired him over the years.  He gave me a bounty of music from Jazz, to Metal, to Traditional Asian and beyond.  

Join Don and I as we digest this heaping plate of broken guitar chords and squealing horns.  Along with Mirai's song choices we discuss Portland record shopping, Primus, improvisation and poor performances.

Episode 24 - with guest Asa Eisenhardt (Nostalgist)

February 26, 2019

Asa Eisenhardt spearheads the shoegaze/postpunk band Nostalgist as well as runs the label Nostalgium Directive.  Asa and I have been friends for quite some time, and it was a pleasure to have him in my studio to share music.  Nostalgist's "Dissafection" was in my top 5 favorites records from 2018 so I wanted to get him in here to promote it a bit.  Join us for music, memories and a bit of nostalgia.

Episode 21 - New Year’s Eve 2018 Experiment

Episode 21 - New Year’s Eve 2018 Experiment

January 9, 2019

I believe art of any kind, should be wrought with chance operation and experiment.  I also believe that podcasting is an art.  With that spirit in mind, I give to you, an odd experiment I presented to the guests at my house on New Year's Eve.  I set up all my podcasting gear, hit "play" on my Spotify "Your Top Songs of 2018" playlist automatically made for me by the all-knowing gods at Spotify, and invited my guests to take part, without me.

After some heavy editing of approximately 8 hours of audio, I widdled it down to the cream of the crop.  Join me in listening to various people, from various age groups, reacting to a randomly generated playlist that they can only hear, not see.  If you have listened to past episodes, some voices will be familiar, and others will be new.

Episode 20 - with guest Don Anderson (KHôRADA, Sculptured, ex-Agalloch)

Episode 20 - with guest Don Anderson (KHôRADA, Sculptured, ex-Agalloch)

December 31, 2018

Don Anderson needs no introduction.  He is the mastermind behind Prog Metal mainstays Sculptured, the guitarist for KHôRADA and perhaps best known for wielding the guitar for Agalloch for 20 years.  Don is also a college professor, a snappy dresser, a beer snob and one of my absolute closest friends. 

Today Don and I talk obscure 90's death metal, share some current music, as well as revisit our past in Agalloch and recount our memories regarding the making of Agalloch's "From Which of this Oak" demo.   Don closes out this episode with an acoustic rendition of an Agalloch classic.
