If There Is Hell Below Podcast... Grills on the NHS

Rob and Callum are back after a week break and guess what? Their Dad still isn’t Brian May; for that they count their blessings – your dad being Brian May is the street cred killer.
In a podcast full of cred, they can’t risk that.
Rob’s bought in mainly hip hop choices from Oddisee, to Ayentee’s Mos Def, Common and Black Thought Frankenstein mixtape, to Danny Brown’s unhinge weed paranoia minimalism and also a bit of Turkish surf rock and rare jazz funk.
Callum’s got that J. Mascis and Spacemen 3 inspired shit that cats have been digging (yeah, I said ‘cats’) in the form of Bare Mutants and Bearhug, new garage rock from Ty Segal + White Fence, plus his own hip hop choice from Nas.
There’s more stuff, there’s more rambling – ‘this is that real’.

Apaşlar – Şans Çocuğu
Nas – The Don
Danny Brown – Baseline
Gentleman Jesse – Take It Easy on Me
Bearhug – Over The Hill
Ayentee – Blackout
Iris Bell With The Jive-Ettes – Honky Games
Ty Segall and The White Fence – I Am Not A Game
Bare Mutants – Inside My Head
Oddisee – Slow It Down
Lucas Rivers – Riverstone
Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built

Now excuse us, we’re off to a talk about ‘Getting the most out a gig through an iPad’.
