New Wave Vs Schlager On Geek EmaNation Podcast!

October 24, 2014
5:40 pm

Y AxesThe first hour of this special episode of GE is firmly ensconced in the sounds of New Wave as practiced in the last 20 years, culminating in an extremely goofy interview with local heroes THE Y AXES.  The second hour descends into the madness that was German Schlager-esque soundtrack music from the late ’60s/early ’70s.  Don’t even ask, just listen… Plenty of aural cognitive dissonance for you, fellow music geeks!

SPRINGHOUSE Songs And Stories On GeekEmanation Podcast!

SpringhouseIn the early 1990s, a record came out by NYC pop/psych band SPRINGHOUSE named Land Falls made its way into my hands.  Somehow that decade saw it disappear from my hands, but last year a SPRINGHOUSE record from 2007 called From Now To OK caught my attention and got me to do some audio archeology of the band’s previous releases.  The story of the rise/fall/rise again of this band got me to interview two of the original members to get the real story.  Hear the results and lots of SPRINGHOUSE music on this episode of GE.  Musical longevity matters, fellow music geeks!
