iVoryTowerz Radio: Timebomb/Time Warp

Get ready for an explosion of musical themes, notes, power chords, and guitar virtuosity as the underground podcast attempts to link the sound of the progressive past to the eclectic future. Can it be done? Well, come along and listen to the experiment and judge for yourself, as this week's program covers 40 years of musical territory. How can you link jazz-rock fusion from the 1970s to current Grammy-nominated songs? What was the first heavy metal release? How about the last real New Wave record? And why has it taken us so long to delve into riot grrrl or uncover the burgeoning Icelandic rock scene? Finally, there's that old question from Amadeus: is it really possible for a song to have too many notes? We may not have all the answers, but we have fun trying to puzzle it all together. We hope you enjoy the trip too!
