Iowa Basement Tapes #42 - 4/18/2019

 

Night Listeners -

 

I am all over the place tonight with tunes from every part of the state: Sioux City, Des Moines, Waterloo, Waverly, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Clinton, Keokuk, and Dubuque. I was presented with an email earlier in the week from Bensmasher sharing with me some really interesting finds. One of the most interesting is a group from Clinton called Mississippi Belle. Two boat captains who made a record using a keyboard a drum machine. I love this stuff.

Iowa Basement Tapes #41 - 4/11/2019

 

Night Listeners - 

 

To continue on with my travelogue shows I am now in West Point, NY. On the flight I got to finally explore some tunes by the band Nethervoid. Tim Connery whom I have worked with on film projects up in the Dubuque area used to be in this band with members of The Tanks (hence the double location mention). Nethervoid put out two albums, an EP, and a demo during their short lifespan. Now the majority of their music is some good ol' hail satan black metal, however they do have a cover of Bauhaus's "Mask" on their EP. But I chose the instrumental title song from their last album as my pick.
