July’s release schedule gives new meaning to the dog days of summer. After barely having enough reviews for Episodes 40 and 41, the last week of the month offers nada in the way of new music. But that’s fine by us because we’re making you Freaks do all the hard work instead.

That’s right—we’re letting the inmates run the asylum in Episode 43 with a new segment called #YouAskedForIt. Inspired by two of our most faithful Freaks (@bobjsala and @JorgeColonna), we want to know what you’re listening to. And then, in typical SIDESHOW fashion, we’ll tell you whether you’re a connoisseur of taste or a poseur that’s wasting our time. And by “we” I mean the ROCK(jock) is probably the only one who will be a dick about it.

In order for this to work though we need you to make your voices heard! Throw us your suggestions in the comments section of this post, over on our Facebook wall, or on Twitter with #YouAskedForIt. Then make sure to come back on Sunday, July 29 for Episode 43 to hear our infallible judgments on your personal tastes.

The SIDESHOW Podcast—letting you bring us the best (and worst) in music to make your ears bleed.



  1. Check out Black Pyramid’s “II” from 2012. Band from Northampton MA, just ran across them recently. I’m sure I have more ideas…

    Oh, there’s that new one from Carly Rae Jepson…

  2. If you think July looks slow for releases, then August looks even slower. I count 5 albums I’m looking forward to in July: Nile, Periphery, Baroness, Nachtmystium, and Testament. But I can only find a single album that I’m looking forward to in August (Katatonia). So maybe you’ll have even more opportunities to take my 10 suggestions that I posted in the comments of Ep. 40.
