Tales From The Drop Box Episode 142 (2019-09)

I know you won’t take my advice this time. I know I can’t help you change you life. But I can. Tales From The Drop Box Episode 142 should change the way you think about the place music plays in your life. Without it, your heart is empty. Music should make you feel love, passion, desire, or make you happy. I have final figured out that good music is your soul anchor firing the neurons as your brain finds the pattern that connects sound with feeling. So, as you listen to this, hear the passion and save your soul. Take my advice this time.

Here is what you’ll find in Episode 142:

  1. Sunflower Bean – “Fear City” (King of the Dudes EP)
  2. The Candescents – “Wet Tuesday” (Grass EP)
  3. SWMRS – “Too Much Coffee” (Berkeley’s On Fire)
  4. This Means War! – “Why We Fight” (Heartstrings)
  5. Teresa Banks – “You’re The Problem” (Bridges We Build/Bridges We Burn)
  6. Sleepwalk – “Thrust” (Splatter)
  7. Radar State – “Damn The Man” (Strays)

  13. Mass Gothic – “Call Me” (I’ve Tortured You Long Enough)
  14. Urban Dogs – “Dragnet” (Urban Dogs)

I know you won’t take my advice this time I know I can’t make you change your mind . . .  I want you wearing white I want you in a frame nothing but a t-shirt dancing in the rain.
