Solid State Records

Four Freakin’ Hundred!

So we have done a lot of episodes in our 8+ years as podcast!  It would have been more if we did change our release format this year, but we still haven’t missed a scheduled show!  This also mean we have listened to a metric fuckton of music, a fun fact Nick details in the show.

Thanks for being with us this far, and we look forward to being with you for years to come!

It’s Coming Back Around Again

We have a little back of a throwback going on this week.  After staring in the mid-2000’s and dropping three albums, two of these bands have been absent for 6-7 years.  Another artist here got their start around the same time, but they never left, riding the waves of the changing scene and industry. Then we have The Ongoing Concept.

Going Above and Beyond

What do these three albums have in common? Well, not a hell of a lot besides guitars, bass, drums, and somebody doing vocals.  Two of them did “transcend” our expectations and the other has “transcend” in the name, so I guess that is kinda of a connection.  It’s not a great one, but it’s something!
