Episode 38 - with guests Joy Von Spain and Masaaki Masao (Eye of Nix, To End It All)

October 22, 2019

For this episode I was joined by my good friends Joy Von Spain and Masaaki Masao.  They are the duo that comprises the death industrial project To End It All, and as if that didn't keep them busy enough, they are in Eye of Nix as well. These two are two of my favorite performers and I have been blessed to see them, and share the stage with them many times. 

I was able to catch up with them when they came down from Seattle to play a special invite only show at Azoth here in Portland.  Listen in as we discuss hip hop, drum n bass, Weird Al and take a couple listener suggestions.

Episode 37 - with guest Casey C-P — King Gizzard “Infest the Rats’ Nest” Special

Episode 37 - with guest Casey C-P — King Gizzard “Infest the Rats’ Nest” Special

September 24, 2019

Once again, back is the incredible, the rhyme animal, the uncannable CC-P.  He brought with him the latest King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard album, "Infest the Rats' Nest."  As always, when the Gizz releases a new record, we are here with bated breath, ready to digest and dissect, to criticize and celebrate. 

On this album King Gizzard decide to tread through waters that are dear to me heart, they decide to dip their quill into the genre of metal.  I think it is fair to say that both CC-P and JWW were fairly skeptical of this move but decided to listen to the record together for the first time and see how it plays out.

 

Join us as we bravely follow King Gizzard down deep and dark hallways into H-E-Double Hell Sticks.  Recoil as the internet tells us again that we do not know what we are talking about. Feign fascination as we discuss jaw harps, Metallica, Eco-disaster, and The Denver Broncos.

Episode 36 - with guest Ramin Hosseinabad - Curated by Dan Swano (Edge of Sanity, Pan Thy Monium, Nightingale)

September 10, 2019

In the first of what I hope is a series of many, I welcome a guest curator for this episode.  This time, I asked legendary producer/engineer/musician Dan Swano to pick six songs from his career to share with us.  You may know him from his work with Edge of Sanity, Pan Thy Monium, or Bloodbath, or perhaps even his production or engineering work with bands such as Marduk or Opeth, but get ready to dig into some deep cuts from Dan Swano's career, handpicked by the man himself for you to hear, and for Ramin and I to discuss.

Join return guest Ramin Hosseinabad and I as we crack a beer or two, share a laugh, and stumble over our words trying to express our admiration for Mr. Swano.

Episode 35 - with guest Jori Apedaile (Eneferens, Hyalithe)

August 27, 2019

Jori has been a guest before.  Last summer when Eneferens came through Portland on tour, he stopped by to share some music.  This summer bore witness to another Eneferens tour, so we decided to do it again. 

At the time of this recording, Jori was in the process of moving back to Bozeman, Montana after living for a couple of years in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He joined me towards the end of his tour that stretched all across The United States.  Join us as we talk about metal from around the world, take a listener request, discuss the scene in Minneapolis and how its changed over the years, and the wonders of the Hyalite Canyon.

Episode 32 - with guest Casey C-P — King Gizzard “Fishing for Fishies” Special

Episode 32 - with guest Casey C-P — King Gizzard “Fishing for Fishies” Special

June 18, 2019

A new King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard record means a new episode with Casey C-P.  This time their latest, "Fishing for Fishies."  The Australian wonder-band mellows out a bit on this album, and assaults us with their over-use of the word "boogie" and apparently can't put down their harmonica for more than a few seconds.

Casey C-P and I unwrap the album, dissect it's contents and drink its sweet blood in front of your very ears.  Join us for a beer, readings from Wikipedia, and discussions on the Mouth Harp.

Episode 31 - with guest Aaron John Gregory (KHôRADA, Squalus, Giant Squid)

June 4, 2019

Let's try this again. 

Last time Aaron John Gregory of KHôRADA, Squalus and Giant Squid was on, we ended it early.  This encounter was much more pleasant.  We were a bit rushed though as we decided to record right before going to perform as main support for Melvins.  Our energy was up, attitudes were good, and beer and music was flowing.

We settled into some nice conversations about IBUs, ABV, Video Games, Roombas and thankfully AJ rarely mentioned Ska.  Join Us!

Episode 28 - with guest Ron Varod (Zvi, Kayo Dot, Sabbath Assembly)

April 30, 2019

Kayo Dot is a very important band to me, so it was an honor to welcome Ron Varod onto the podcast.  Ron is a multi-instrumentalist who is in Kayo Dot, Sabbath Assembly and performs solo under the name Zvi.  Zvi was on a tour across America supporting his new record "Deer Pink" and stopped in to share some interesting music and perspectives. 

Join us as we talk about Ulver, the pros and cons of drum machines, music production and Karaoke.

Episode 26 - “In Defense of Twenty One Pilots” with guest Ione Walton

Episode 26 - “In Defense of Twenty One Pilots” with guest Ione Walton

April 2, 2019

Ione and I had been discussing for a while starting a series of podcasts, shorter episodes that exist in the larger body of IHM, that focus on bands or artists we both enjoy, but that we assume most listeners of I Hate Music would not enjoy.  We are calling this series "In Defense of...", and this is the first installment.  

21 Pilots are very hit and miss for me, but I find them clever, ominous, subversive and at times, even heavy?  Ione and I decided to get to the bottom of this and explore the world of this Ohio duo.

Join us for beer, talk, and listen to us flounder trying to justify our appreciation for a pop band.

Episode 25 - with guest Robert Hunter (Hollow Branches, Occulted Sound)

March 19, 2019

Robert Hunter and I go way back.  He is one of my favorite people.  He and I have collaborated on many things, including Snares of Sixes, Self Spiller and my short lived label, Audio Savant, that we both struggled with years ago. 

He also makes music with IHM's very own Marius Sjoli in Hollow Branches, and solo under the moniker Occulted Sound.  Join Robert and I for beer, music and a few laughs.

Episode 23 - with guest Ellory Walton

February 15, 2019

Ellory Walton has been my daughter for almost 12 years now.  She is an amazing, and disturbingly brilliant and hilarious individual.  Her music taste might be suspect, and honestly, confounding, but her insight into the way kids her age get exposed to music, share music, and consume music is fascinating.  Join us for music and beers.
