Episode 36: Old Stories For New Listeners

The Casual Sound Podcast

Out of the gate, sorry to bore the old listeners – we tend to repeat ourselves. Trying to do it less but when we discuss an album like Verve’s A Storm In Heaven, certain known opinions have to be shared. I promise, our self-awareness is growing and we’re trying to do it less, but, boy howdy, if you’re bored of hearing the same opinions over and over – thanks for listening over the years. Happy to be repetitious.

Episode 34: Happy 2022. Is it still last Summer?

The Casual Sound Podcast

You should know that the “Clowns” song doesn’t go on forever and we cut it off halfway through. Even as a fan of that track I agree – it’s too long.

Episode 34 was recorded on the same afternoon, outside and germ-free, as episode 33. Lager was involved but it still comes across as nothing short of professional. Really, we’re nothing if not pros.

Be prepared to get turned on cos this episode features a track that is sure to be your favorite in no time flat. You’ll know it when you hear it (and if you don’t – fret not – we call it out as we’re prone to do.)

The Casual Sound Episode 33 with Annemarie Duff of T.G. Shand and Miniatures

Our guest for Episode 32 is Annemarie Duff of New Zealand’s T. G. Shand and Melbourne, Australia’s Miniatures. As you’ll hear, we had a wonderful time discussing her projects and our shared love of shoegaze.

Annemarie was kind enough to go above and beyond the request for a handful of her favorite songs to supplement the episode and instead programmed (with the exception of her own song that opens the episode, which was our pick) this entire extended episode of some of her favorite tracks, broken up by the two countries her bands represent. Scroll below this episode’s playlist for even more from Annamarie.

Episode 30: There’s something in the water down under

The Casual Sound Podcast

THE BIG THREE OH!

Yes, we know we’re the sweethearts of the the “wildly consistent output” genre of the America’s exploding Brit-Pop and Shoegaze podcast scene – but for this Jake Ryan curated episode (and probably at least one more episode in the future) the focus shifts somewhat (not entirely) below the globe’s belt buckle and onto Australia. Now, one thing I want to make absolutely clear…. there is no “down under” – it could be “up there” since there’s no top or bottom of space, ya got that? Ok. – moving along.

Episode 28: Santa Delivers A Jake Ryan Episode.

The Casual Sound Podcast

The physics behind St. Nick delivering presents to every boy and girl dictate that Santa would burst into flames. So, clearly, that calls Santa’s existence into serious doubt. I mean, it’s probably bullshit, right? But, then, he delivers the first Jake Ryan episode in like 9 months via the internet, and it’s a gift for the entire world, distributed on Christmas Eve. It’s plausible that this is a Christmas miracle. Suddenly, you’re like “Wait… he might just exist.” Right?

Episode 27: I stole most of this from YouTube

The Casual Sound Podcast

The response to the last episode was so fantastic that I couldn’t wait to get another one out. Odd how much of this came from posts in my Facebook feed – but, listen, there are no rules on the road to discovery. No matter how uncool the path is, as long as the destination is cool, it was valid. Anyway, you should leave us a review on Apple podcast. -Tyler
