If There Is Hell Below... The Dungeon Master's CV


Another week another standard classic film Rob can’t quite believe Callum hasn’t seen. This is the last ITHB podcast “proper” before Good Shit ’14 (exciting, innit).
This week the punk of Useless Eaters gets us thinking about dungeons in those medieval films and Hayden Pedigo’s rootsy guitar picking puts us into a bleak revenge fuelled western and then there’s some other songs that don’t remind us of films at all. Like Betty Ford boys the ace Bavarian hip hop producer supergroup and the killer new track from your boy Ghostface.
There’s some Balearic sunbaked folk from Dos Palos and more hip hop and some garage, we talk all about it in this podcast.

Word to the changeophobes: Rob and Callum have new logo, check him out the friendly little Arkman with his bottle of beer and music in ears, and not mention this motherfucker is half-man-half-ark!
This week the Arkman is digging cosmicpsychbalericfunk from Gala Drop, the synth nightmares of Jack Name, the noise punk of Big Ups, the trap via G-Funk hip hop production of Salva and the subtle folk beauty of Jessica Pratt.
We play some other stuff, have a listen and enjoy.

If There Is Hell Below Podcast... Are You Open to the Idea?


Rob and Callum would like to apologise in advance, this podcast does head into the gutter a little but when two bands in this show are called Cumstain and Porno Mags plus one of the songs is called Funky Dildo, the only way is the gutter. After last week’s mixed bag of genres we’ve reverted back to type with garage punk offerings from those two previously mentioned grotty bands plus the token power pop moment comes from Barreracudas . There’s some ace new hip hop from Remy Banks, Pep Love and something from the hip hop album of the moment. Standard tastes met, we also take in some sophistofunkpop from Dutch Uncles, some sweet gentle folk from Angelo de Augustine and the Philly soul meets post-Pet Sounds return of BC Camplight. All that and a little more inside this horrible little podcast.

If There Is Hell Below Podcast... Burglarization


Rob and Callum are chatting about the music with its blowing into instruments, synthetic keyboards; with its loud bit and soft bits and it's spiritual moments. This is a podcast where your hosts may blind you with the technicalities of music and you'll be smarter for it and will likely enjoy music more. Songs from all the genres this week: afro jazz funk rhythms from Jungle Fire, jazz funk from Butcher Brown, not jazz funk but power pop from MAMA, psychedelic hip hop from AJ Suede, straight up golden era from Jay Rock, bedroom pop from Bill Baird and songwriting music via John Southworth. Plus more artists with more songs from more genres inside this incredible music podcast.
