  2. Would love to hear Lush Deluxe, or maybe Curve Coast is clear? Thanks!

  3. Jeff sample

    How about some Fear Cult or Faith and the muse?

  4. Great show tonight! Next week, would love to hear “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”, by Specimen.

    Hi Matt: Thank you again, for playing my request, for the 2nd consecutive week (this week was Above The Ruins). Next week I’d like to hear something by Death In June. “All Pigs Must Die” is my request, unless you want to play “Little Black Angel” Thank you kindly, regards from Brooklyn, NY

  14. Matt I don’t think I mentioned this yet, but I am south of you in Albuquerque, NM. One of my watering holes down here called Stone Face Tavern has your show on playing over the PAs. My request is that you give them a shout out and play a song that a bunch of Sunday night drinkers that you think would want to hear on a future show.

  15. Another great show, Matt! Not sure if their work is beyond the scope of the show (I totally understand if it is), but I would love to hear some Bark Psychosis next week – perhaps Absent Friend or Eyes and Smiles? Thanks!

  16. Danse Society

    The Theme

  17. 47th Birthday (8/30) Request: Send in the Drugs – Andy Prieboy (EP – Montezuma was a man of faith).

    Also, if anyone knows who the Cajun singer sampled in the song is, would solve a decades-long musical trivia pursuit.
