It’s a mishmash mix tapey podcast of music from all around the world. This episode features everything from a Scandinavian swing band singing in Latin to a hard-rocking Los Angeles indie band. For those who like music that reaches out and grabs you, this is the creme de la creme of this week’s listening, all packaged up into a neat show.

By popular demand, this week I’ve turned my ear towards geeky music – although I should note that I’ve left the definition a bit broad. From well-known favorites like Jonathan Coulton, to soon-to-be favorite artists you may not have heard of yet, this is an extra-long podcast full of music that should set many a heart a-twittering. (Or will at least get Tweeted a few times, anyway.) So, if you love geeky music, or have ever been a fan of Dr. Demento, this particular episode should make you happy.

Hopefully.

Be warned that while this podcast is relatively tame, there is the odd f-bomb. You’ll want earphones if you’re listening to this one at work or around kids… Unless, of course, you happen to work in a very laid-back office, or have kids who swear anyway.

It also includes more of me talking, since I got a couple of notes that I didn’t talk enough on the last one. (Blame them if I’m talking too much for you now. ;D)

As always, the independent artists make this podcast possible. So, if you find a song or artist you really like please consider buying some music from them!

Originally, I’d had this crazy idea to make a podcast full of polka music for April Fool’s day, but then I realized I’d have to listen to it to master it.

Needless to say, this is a guaranteed 100% polka-free podcast. Sorry polka fans, but short of Weird Al, I don’t tend to gravitate towards it.

This episode is also 100% safe from April Fool’s pranks. It does, however, feature some excellent rockabilly and ska with a dash of punk and reggae in there for good measure because that’s my springtime music — and the weather here in Florida has been pretty damn fantastic lately.

Thanks to the awesomeness of bands releasing their music for more podcasters to use, there are a couple of surprises in this podcast’s lineup. If you like being surprised, be sure to listen to the show before checking the show notes.

Of course, if you’re into spoilers, the full listing of tracks and artists can, as always, be found after the break!
