iVoryTowerz Radio: Our Dark Hour

Well, actually this is more like a dark 90 minutes. But if you are a long-time listener of the underground podcast, you'll get the idea. And for new folks, get ready for a ride down the rabbit hole. Are we afraid of dark political topics? Are you kidding? That would be like saying we are afraid of the truth. But all that straight up information (in the music and commentary) can be a bit of a downer, no? Not to worry. The doctors of rock 'n roll are in the house. But we prescribe a particular eclectic mix, so please take the exact dosages in the order prescribed. This week, besides minor key and uptempo rock (yes, both!) there's plenty of folk, Americana, soul, new wave, metal and even some dark comedy too, covering 45 years of modern music. Just remember, no skipping, but please remember to enjoy: Musical medicine soothes what hurts your psyche.
