Going into a long weekend makes it kind of difficult to set the vibe, so I kind of went for something that transitions both a celebratory vibe with also something for the people who have to work all weekend. And if that doesn’t work for you, I don’t know what to tell you.
I’m not too terribly great at social media these days, but when I went to post up last week’s episode I saw a lot of artists that I’ve followed talking about the passing of Care Failure. I couldn’t not do some tribute; Easily one of my most played bands back when I started was Die Mannequin, and even when I talk about random bands now I usually share at least one or two DM tracks. Definitely puts a weird timestamp on things.
