Spotlight On: The Aztalan Turf Podcast

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2010 by Rnowak

So as most of you guys know by now ( from previous spotlight featured here) that I’m always coming across new music, new sites, new people, new podcasts or new artist/photographers on the vast landscape that is the Internet. It’s when one of those above mentioned catches my attention that I feel the need to share with all of you my new findings so you to can enjoy!

Having said that this brings me to this spotlight on the Aztalan Turf podcast. The Aztalan Turf podcast is a bi-weekly well put together music show that’s first episode  graced the waves of the internet on March 2010. The show plays a wide range of music genres such as rock, EBM, synth pop, industrial, electro,  and goth just to name a few.

One of the things that the host and mastermind of  the Aztalan Turf podcast Renee made clear during the show is that she pretty much likes to plays music that she has  encountered and enjoyed or interested her versus music being played for the sake of playing music.  Which for those of you that have read previous spotlight I have done on  some of the other podcasts/shows out there ( for example  Sounds From The Sandbox, Latex Radio, and DJ Mirage’s show every Sunday night on Darkside Radio) you will see that this is a reoccurring theme. It’s this theme in my opinion that you really get to personalize your show/podcast. It becomes almost like an extension of your interests and passions shared with your listeners who have almost similar interests and passions and it really makes for an enjoyable listening experience( like the one I had last week with the Aztalan Turf podcast).

So as an individual with very much similar interests in the music genres played on the show I would highly recommend you guys give it shot! All of the episodes (1-13) are still available on the Aztalan Turf site here. If you like what you hear in episode 13 do go back and give a listen to some of the older episodes as well ( I know I will be).

Spotlight on The Sounds From The Sandbox Podcast

Posted in Music Spotlight with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2010 by Rnowak

In the past few Months I have met a lot of interesting people online whom have the same ( if not more) passion about the music genre we all love.  It’s when they take that burning passion and transfer it into music, writing, a podcast show, a record label or a radio station that it becomes something that really stands out! It becomes something that needs to be shared with others  out there that may have never heard of  the artist, blogger, band, podcast, or radio station before so you can enjoy it as much as I do ( this is why I love doing these spotlights)!

So this brings me to the spotlight on Sounds From The Sandbox! Sounds From The Sandbox is a regularly updated podcast show  that plays a fantastic selection of new and old industrial, EBM, powernoise, aggrotech, coldwave, metal, punk and much more ( so it’s the good stuff ). The podcast is available through Itunes ( leave comments on how well you enjoy the show if your an Itunes user  as everyone love comments) or you can go directly to the Sounds From The Sandbox site here.

I came across the mastermind behind the Sounds From The Sandbox CRY0G3N  on Twitter( a pretty cool dude to follow on Twitter @CRY0G3N)  at first I did not  know that he did these podcast shows so it wasn’t until I saw a tweet about it that put me in the loop finally. So highly interested in it I immediately( after seeing the tweet)  went to download the podcast! After listening to the quality, the energy and how well put together the show was  I knew that I was hooked! So I went back to get the previous episodes that I missed out on( and the previous shows did not disappoint at all)!

So far there has been 6 well crafted episodes released ( number 7 is on the way) all are still available for download! Of which I highly recommend that you guys do check out not only the new episodes but the older episodes as well too!  If you like what you hear you can become a fan of  Sounds From The Sandbox on Facebook here or again follow @CRY0G3N on twitter for up to date news on sounds from the Sandbox and release times for future episodes!

Music Spotlight : Psyborg Corp.

Posted in Music Spotlight with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by Rnowak

Earlier this week I reviewed Psyborg Corp.’s first full length debut album The Mechanical Renaissance (for those of you that are new to the site/blog and didn’t see it you can find that here.). So as soon as I finished the review I immediately contacted the band to see if they would be cool with having a spotlight done on them as I really enjoyed their music and was sure that some of you would enjoy it as well! Sure enough the band responded and was more than willing to have a spotlight done up on them.

Psyborg Corp. consists of :

p5YbORG – Biomechanical Vox Modulator and Synthetic Multifrequency Generator

Miss Pixel – Fourwired Seismic Shocker

UserX86 – Sixwired Complex Synthechord

Psyborg Corp. is a Colombian based Electro/Industrial and Harsh EBM band. Their unique eye catching Sci-Fi visuals , lyrics, beats, and catchy Sci- Fi/Electro  melodies make them truly stand out in the Electro/Industrial music genre.  In 2009 the band signed with German label NoiTekk. In 2010 the band released not only their first single Technocracy  (it was a wonderful prelude of what was to come off of their first full length debut album. The single is still available as a free download off the bands Myspace.) and their first full length debut album The Mechanical Renaissance( of which I’m still listening to and still enjoying even as I type this) . I for one truly hope there is more to come from this truly amazing and unique band.

For those of you that didn’t get a chance to listen to the song clips I found off of Youtube (posted in the Album review) I’ll re-post them here (with a few more of my favorites) . So you guys can listen to a few songs from The Mechanical Renaissance album:

To listen to a few more tracks off of the album you can check out the bands Myspace page here where they have  a few more on their Myspace music player. If you have a Twitter you also can follow the band on there @ PsyborgCorp. If you like the music you heard and want to buy the album you can do so from a link off the bands Myspace(Just  click  on the album banner) or you can buy the digital download from amazon’s Mp3 store( Trust me it is very worth it).

I would like to thank p5Y and  Psyborg Corp for taking the time to responding to my Email and getting involved with this spotlight and for the amazing HQ pictures that they sent over.
