Chapter Four: Brass Androids and Children’s Choirs

Quick Note: This chapter was recorded mid-March, when CDC guidelines still considered gatherings of less than 10 individuals appropriate. Future chapters will be recorded remotely until it’s considered safe to leave our homes again. Please stay safe, everyone!

Justin and Ed have returned with a unique and eclectic satchel of music to experience. Following the formula of Chapter 1, the pair share music from four genres: Synthwave, Steampunk, Intelligent Dance Music (IDM,) and Southern Gothic. Listen in and find out about artists like Steam Powered Giraffe, Dead Man’s Bones, Meat Beat Manifesto, and more!
