Show #60: Less Talk & More Rock

logo

You know what, Earth? I got to thinking. About life, music, and the pursuit of rockiness. I decided that sometimes, you’ve got to listen to music a little bit differently. So this week, we dropped the singers and went instrumental. Oh yeah. Too many genres have awesome instrumental bands, so I focused solely on one genre: Post-Rock. Turns out, even without a singer, you can rock out pretty heavy. Don’t believe me? Click that link below and crank up the old speaks. I prove my point. Well, technically I will prove my point after you listen to the show.

Show #59: The Best Of 2013 (Part 2)

logo

Well I’ll be Earth, it’s been awhile. After a little hiatus, TRR is up and rocking again, though a little more on the DL. That’s ‘down low’ if you’re not into the whole acronym thing. Anyway, I’m now rocking the show on a non-weekly basis, so my times will be a’changing, but I’m aiming to broadcast a show once a month for the time being. Who knows, maybe I’ll rev the party train back up in the near future. Either way, it’s jam time, and we’re picking up right where we left off. Here are the very best albums of 2013, and boy were they awesome.  Read the full post »

The Best Music of 2013


2013
It was a rocking year for tunes, let me tell you Earth. Like all music nerds, I’m all about the year end lists. I don’t do a top songs list, because I’m an album man. Old school, what can I say. I’m not just doing the top 13 albums of 2013 though, we’ve got lots more going on than that. It’s time for some wild retrospective time, right…about…now.

Show #57: Slowhand

logo

Some people need no introduction, and that includes Eric Clapton, the man known as “slowhand.” Everyone talks about his mad guitar skills, but few realize that he’s been shredding his ax in more bands than anyone else. Maybe that’s why he’s the only dude to ever win three inductions into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Three times a charm or whatever they say. So sit back, relax, and listen to slowhand evolve through the ages of Rock awesomeness.

Show #56: Alone Again Or

logo

After some jamming out to Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska this week, I thought I’d focus on the stripped-down basics of music. If you remove all the complexities and over production, you get to the core of the tuneskies. Just a musician and their instrument, nothing else. Only then can you really hear what makes a song great, with the emotion and honesty that a great musician can communicate. So let’s mellow out for the next hour and listen to some great musicians delivering killer jams in their rawest form.

Show #55: Big Sellers

In honor of the spending season I thought I’d take a gander at some of the best selling albums of all time. To my surprise, they weren’t all terrible Top 40 Pop albums (though many were). So jam out to the very diverse playlist as we count up from 25 million copy sellers all the way up to the second highest selling album of all time with 45 million copies. I’m no math whiz, but if my calculations are correct, 45 million is a lot.
