This month we talked with Greg Thomas of Silver Bullet Studios, End and myriad musical projects. We really just scratch the surface with Greg and it’s a great talk chalk full of knowledge nuggets. What a Colossal (wink, nudge) interview!
We talk about some of the music we’re listening to and Greg drops lots of teasers on upcoming recordings. New With Honor. New Murmur. Will the Risk Taken album come out for the 20th Anniversaryof the studio next year?! Should it?! Pressing questions that a select few forgot they cared about!(SIC) And then we talk about shipping for a while (so much that I cut some of it out!). And then more music!

“what is this, besides way too much” – anonymous sound guy
New album “Gold Star” featuring such hits as “Crunch House Bathroom” blazing up the charts! Honestly not sure if they have more energy or musicality – it’s all “way too much!” https://spacecampct.bandcamp.com/album/gold-star
It is time for our list of favorites from the past year! We asked everyone here at the shop if they’d like to submit a list and 5/6 of us did! [UPDATE: Photini sent us a list and an updated pic – check the end of the post! 6/6] Josh and I are joined by our shipping specialist Caleb and we also read from Caren’s and Lexi’s lists. We mention our releases from the past year at the top of it and finish off with some live shows we enjoyed. This is a music heavy / heavily edited show so please enjoy it all! If you enjoy it and want to hear some more let us know if you’d like it as a playlist and maybe we’ll share that!
Silas, Tate and Reena are The Problem With Kids Today. They’re also a band of the same name (wocka wocka). We talk to them about all the usual musical topics specific to them and their band. We talk about Sesame Street, Dora and various early musical memories as well as Reena’s vlogging dad and Tate’s Miracle Legion connection and building a shed instead of getting a job with Silas and various other divergent topics as it goes. And we start with the music we’re listening to of course.
