Episode 24: Land Of The Freak
After all the talk about it last time, Some Kind of Jam is officially part of the Spotify universe and can be found by clicking HERE or searching spotify:user:djpretentious in Spotify. One of the main differences being that requests can now become more direct, but are always welcome via Facebook or Twitter as well. Another difference is accessibility to WAY more music than any one person can possibly contain in their iTunes collection. So not only are you more free to recommend anything your little heart desires, but I can finally get around to listening to artists I've been meaning to catch up on (Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.), get introduced to new folks (Aloe Blacc) or indulge in some more depth from those I could honestly listen to every damn day (King Khan And The Shrines).
While this new marriage will one day live in complete harmony there are some hiccups in the short term. Switching formats has left some small gaps in between songs that will be properly righted by next week, but just expect a slightly longer delay between tracks this week. Along with the longer gaps are some slightly harsh transitions, which will also be smoothed out by next week.
There will be many an update on the EOTO at Bell's ticket giveaway as well as the pair of tickets for Yonder Mountain String Band's Harvest Festival, but that's all for another email. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for the Some Kind of Jam turntable room which is currently setting empty, but will play host to each episodes songs and whatever you may want to share. Updates on when the room is active will be posted on Facebook or Twitter.
