Episode 549 - Top Ten Ultimate Headphone Albums Volume 1 Part 1 w/Ryan Blake

There's not much to say about this most OBA of topics, except please please please listen to this episode on headphones! This week's word is "mixing" as in the unsung professional artists known as mixers that create the soundscapes in your brain that the artists want you to hear. TOP TEN ULTIMATE HEADPHONE ALBUMS is such a great topic that it has to be a "volume 1 situation", as in there will be more volumes at some point. Anyway, we finally got The Old Boy Himself Ryan Blake to visit...

It's a new year and we're bigly focused on living our complete lives to the fullest. You know, having a great time, listening to great music, hanging with cool people, and so forth. While this is a worthy purpose, it's sad to report that there's something lingering out there that is making it difficult to achieve. That something is bullshit - bullshit like racism, antisemitism, bigotry, and hate. We know we can rise above it, but we do need some help from songwriters and musicians to give us...

We've had a lot of fun in Season 11 of ATTT. We've met a lot of awesome people and had many of them on our show for the first time. In that spirit, we'd like to close out with some epic fun. The man behind the big beautiful Nord keyboard that brings the band Mighty Love the essentials is none other than this week's special guest Tim Battig. Tim knows his way around a keyboard, be it piano, organ, or synth; and while the definition of the term "epic" is subjective, Timmah knows his epicness....

Episode 539 - The Songs Of OK Computer Worst-To-First Part 1 w/Paul, Brent & Steve of Datamaps

25 years ago, the world's collective mind was blown by a new collection of songs from England's premier rock band Radiohead. It took a few spins for many to get the genius of OK Computer, but since then critics and fans alike have cited it as one of the greatest pieces of music ever released. We here at ATTT have been looking for an opportunity to use our Worst-To-First format for some deconstructing fun, and we have our sights set on the songs of OK Computer. Paul Larson, Brent Stranathan...

Episode 532 - Top Ten Songs About Aliens Part 2 w/Gabe Scalone

What does it say about us humans that our most consumed stories about interactions with extraterrestrial beings involve them coming to Earth with a mission to save us from ourselves? We potentially have a lot to learn from other beings from distant places, be it the other side of the galaxy or the other side of our own neighborhoods. The idea of alien life forms among us or out there is too intriguing to not want to explore, and thankfully many of our favorite rock stars agree, and they have...


Episode 531 - Top Ten Songs About Aliens Part 1 w/Gabe Scalone

If aliens were ever to come to this planet, they will find millions of indifferent plants and animals, and a very unpredictable curious bunch of humans. Some humans will gather weapons and prepare for war, some will extend a friendly hand, and some will run around in circles screaming like their hair is on fire. What ATTT plans to do is to beam them this playlist. Songs About Aliens run the gamut in style and approach, and our good friend Gabe Scalone joins the pod for a look at the best...
