Another fun one, our 4/9 show went over artists starting with D, E, or F as our ABCs of Post-Whatever Stuff project continues! We went through a few other genres like post-hardcore, triphop, and even some IDM thrown in there, so I hope you enjoyed these different tracks than normal.

After a break due to UCI basketball, we returned on 3/19 with a playlist packed with stuff from the great compilation “… as darkness came”. Filled with ambient, drone, soundscape, and generally lovely quieter tunes, I highly recommend the release. Do a google for it and the bandcamp should come up. Nearly all the songs on it are exclusive to the release and can’t be found elsewhere. Hope you enjoyed!
