Hot Dog Social Hour, Vol. 8

Ugh, I know. I was doing so well, too.

Unfortunately, some career stuff has come up and as consumed nearly all of the free time that I have, which wasn't much to begin with. It looks like it might be that way for awhile. Still, I've gotten over a hump and have some time off of work, and so I might still get some stuff posted. I have a bunch of stuff simmering over.

Anyway, a mix. Once again, I have sat on a batch of songs for too long and am forced to rush things just to get it off my plate. This one is loud and for the most part fast. I can't promise much for the sound quality, since at least three of the songs are distorted enough in their natural form that there wasn't much I could do. I mixed 'em down where I could. It's hard to do this right without using the car as a playback option. If it sounds like garbage, I can fix it easily enough.

Anyways, yeah these songs are pretty good listening. There's a strong Memphis vibe, with some psych pop and scuffed up country and, because I'm a 36 year-old white guy, a Blackalicious song (whatever I think it fits, and I like the new album, for what that's worth). and some rock/roll. Oh, and Billy's dad from Gremlins. That's my little nod to the holidays.
