V/A - Shiny Grey Monotone Radio - Show 1

Label: n/a
Year: 2012

A few posts back, I mentioned that I wanted to get around to finally posting the compilations I made for the short-lived Shiny Grey Monotone Radio show. The premise was that Ipecac and I would each program 1 hour worth of music each week to showcase the bands (and types of bands) that the blog focused on. Basically, it was the blog as a radio show (on the internet). Make sense?
I don't recall exactly how many episodes were ever "aired", but I know that I put together a bunch of roughly one hour long compilations, and enjoyed them so much that I continually do so. Therefore, I've got 17 or so of these episodes just sitting on my computer, not doing much of anything, save for entertaining me.
The goal for me was to try and run the gamut of styles (as such a gamut there is between noise rock and hardcore and indie rock and...) demonstrated on Shiny Grey Monotone, sequence the songs in a way that they flowed together well, mix more well known bands with smaller ones, choose songs from the recent past and recent...future, and to not repeat bands from one episode to another. I think I've been pretty successful at it, but who am I to judge, maybe you should tell me? And that being said, the first show was pretty overloaded with heavy hitters, since I wasn't sure if we were going to get a second chance, but I do think it's a good representation of the blog as a whole. The Cliff Notes, as it were. Mind you, this is just "my" hour of the show, so you're getting "my" version of the blog for better or for worse. Hope you enjoy this first 'lil mixtape, and if it gets downloaded enough, I'll post more volumes.
