Sampled glitch - vocoders - silly - Michael Aranda - noise/IDM - The fifth song for James Cleveland - actual vocals holy crap
(Podcast intro, with date, in robot voice.)
“sampled glitch” is just that, sounds like something got stuck.
“vocoders” is Tom talking, then something that is also labeled ‘what i’ve been working on today’ and was posted to effyeahnerfighters ages ago with the title of Technicolor Penguin.
“silly” starts off happy and then switches to very dark tones.
The section after that I’m not sure whether it goes with Michael Aranda or silly, or if it’s a segue/transition, but it’s lovely.
“Michael Aranda” has a some layering and has an almost eerie vibe.
“noise/IDM”, organ chords with a metal type sound. More eerie, but with an underlying it’s OK feel.
“The fifth song for James Cleveland” - I do believe this is a stylophone, and even if it isn’t it has a neat flowing sound like one, with some higher parts and a very nice build.
“actual vocals holy crap” It’s a very sad song. When he released “About Our Universeon Ephemera: Demos…, I had to go back and listen to this because they are musically similar. It also sounds a bit like something that could have been on Trockstuff
(this podcast is only 8 days after the first post of trockstuff).
I recently obtained permission to post these again (there are six). You can listen to them all here: http://fuckyeahtommilsom.tumblr.com/TomPodcast
