Episode 5: Death Grips Are in Your Area

On the fifth episode, I get into the genre-bending Sacramento, Ca three-piece Death Grips by discussing the band’s narrative since forming in 2010, briefly highlight their musical output, and talk about what their music means to me personally. It’s an episode with constant uses of the word “nasty”, Sacramento-based tales of Mc Ride and Zach Hill shopping at Safeway, and plenty of abrasively violent tunes. So, grab your headphones and enter the misanthropic abyss of blood-stained mayhem that is the extended DG universe, because, ultimately they could be in your area.


The idea behind THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST is an excuse for the host and creator, Jericho Cerrona, to monologue on various topics involving film and music culture, with the eventual hope of entertaining conversations with guests. Basically, one man awkwardly speaking into a microphone in isolation talking trends, themes, and conversational talking points within the realm of film and music while occasionally playing some tunes. So, grab some boxed mac and cheese, sip that scalding Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and prepare yourself for the auditory experience that is THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST. Just don’t expect true crime reveals or a string of panelists with over-empathic voices.

Episode 4: Cult Film Corner Presents: Liquid Sky

ep4poster.jpg

On the fourth episode, I unveil the very first edition of CULT FILM CORNER, a dissection of and appreciation for all things strange, camp, underrated, and mostly forgotten. For the inaugural segment, I dive into 1982′s sci-fi glam romp “Liquid Sky”, a film which captures the essence of early 80s decadence, glamour, and rampant drug use within trendy New York City. Directed by a Russian immigrant named Slava Tsukerman and starring co-screenwriter Anne Carlisle in a duel role as a bisexual fashion model and androgynous Bowie-like figure, “Liquid Sky” is one weird fucking movie. It’s also, in it’s own bizarre way, something of a time capsule, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Just remember, “I am not a turn of the century housewife and I don’t want heroin in my house.”
Now turn up that rhythm box!

Episode 3: Oscarssowhat

On the third episode, I talk about our most hallowed of American-made traditions, The Academy Awards. But…it’s not exactly what you think. Less than an all-out angry rant, this is more about my disappointment concerning the lack of diversity in Hollywood and the strange notion that we should even give out awards for art. The systemic problem of the prejudice within the Academy is investigated, Spike Lee speaks his mind, Brando’s 1972 Oscar win is given the spotlight, Mac and Cheese is mentioned more than once, and above all else, this all boils down to one white podcaster’s opinion.

SONG LIST:
“Hooray for Hollywood” by Benny Goodman
“Hooray for Hollywood” by Doris Day
“Return To Omma Dawn” by Antarctica
“El Topo” by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Episode 2: The Pop Group, Protomartyr, and the Death of the Rock Band

For the second episode, I get into the idea concerning the death of the rock band and the vanishing act surrounding the rock star. Two of my favorite records from 2015 are highlighted; The Pop Group’s “Citizen Zombie”, and Protomartyr’s “The Agent Intellect”, both of which exemplified a rare attention to aspects lacking from current rock music. I also briefly mention rappers as the new millennial rock stars, indie bands embracing the pop zeitgeist, and ponder where, oh where, did all the fucking guitars go?

SONG LIST:
“Citizen Zombie” by The Pop Group
“Mad Truth” by The Pop Group
“Jeepster” by Marc Bolan

Episode 1: The Immortal Power of David Bowie

For the introductory episode of THE SYMBIOTIC PODCAST, I share my thoughts on the transcendent icon of cool, art-pop pioneer, glam bad-boy, gender-bending weirdo, and musical visionary who envisioned where society was heading, David Bowie. I briefly reflect on his sudden passing, specifically get into some of his early work, and play a few choice songs from his dense catalog. There will never be another being quite like Bowie, and the void left by his passing is immense and unfathomable. This is simply my futile but heartfelt attempt to honor him.

On the thirty-seventh episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, Christian, Armando, and Jericho wear their sinister moles in order to discuss THE MUPPETS MOST WANTED and then do some shield-tossing/jump kick combos to hash out their feeling about the latest Marvel juggernaut CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER. In between those discussions, a therapy session involving Jericho's movie-watching fatigue and sprightly young critic-in-training Dex popping into the garage to offer his Muppet reflections rounds out the show.

Symbiotic Recommends: 10 Albums – April 2014

[playlist images="false" ids="11115,11116,11117,11181,11118,11180,11119,11120,11121,11122"]


by Jericho Cerrona April 25, 2014


Vulture Shit "The Joys of Employment"
"Church Van Contraband"

This snotty Brooklyn punk band ditch the guitars and rely on chaotic free-verse vocals, flailing drums, and crunchy baselines in order to delineate their tongue-in-cheek worldview of complete sonic destruction. Kind of like Blag Flag crossed with Minutemen on a massive bender of uppers, which of course, equals awesome.

P. Morris "Debut"
"Mood Swing"

LA-based producer P. Morris has released an ambitious new mixtape that's an ambient collage of sounds and textures; from synth-laden soundscapes to ethereal hip-hop beats. Working in the self-proclaimed "Goombawave" genre, Debut is both soulful and esoteric.

Vats "Iridescent Intent"
"Intent"

Minneapolis musician Ronnie Lee's solo joint is a slab of pure psych-rock; all cacophonous guitar riffs, pummeling drum machines, and gritty tape deck production. A 30-minute rush of minimalistic, reverb-drenched heaven.

Lorelle Meets the Obsolete "Chambers"
"Sealed Scene"

The tripped-out psychedelic goodness from this Mexico City two-piece will leave even the most staunch detractors of this kind of thing slack-jawed. Swirling inside a haze of shoegazy guitars and echo-laden vocals, Chambers is a boldly forceful album, proving that psych, prog, and garage-rock can peacefully coexist.

Twin Graves "Walk in Circles"
"Night Runner"

The whole reclamation of New Wave in recent years has seen it's fair share of pale imitators, but two-piece Twin Graves truly hit on something special with their new EP Walk in Circles. Singer/guitarist Jeremy Aris Polychronopoulos and vocalist/keyboardist Zarah Lawless lay down some Cure-esque vocal melodies, stellar grooves, and synth-driven rhythms with confidence.

Damaged Bug "Hubba Bubba"
"Photograph"

The insanely prolific John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees) is at it again, this time in solo mode as Damaged Bug, in which he swaps out his guitar for a Tascam 388 and a fully fledged band for analog synthesizers. Coming across as an art-pop experiment gone digital, Dwyer's monotone vocals are meshed with blippy electronics, creating an album that even a pot-smoking android could enjoy.

Kool A.D. "Word O.K."
"The Front"

Former Das Racist rapper Kool A.D. delivers 11 tracks of loop-driven hip-hop, with help from Toro Y Moi, Mr. Muthafuckin' esquire, Talib Kweli, among many others. It's all delivered with jazzy, funk-inflected production and Kool A.D.'s humorously barbed flow. A thrilling, forward-thinking mixtape.

The Jellyfish Brothers "Sentinels Of The Space Age"
"Edge of the World"

Miami three-piece The Jellyfish Brothers deliver a stoner/psych rock opus that's both raucously noisy and stunningly contained. Equal parts doom metal and space opera, Sentinels Of The Space Age drives along on the strength of post-apocalptic lyrics, sludgy guitar riffs, pulverizing drums, and distorted heaviness. Think Black Sabbath by way of Torche with a hint of surf-rock melody.

Axxa//Abraxas "Axxa//Abraxas"
"Ryan Michalak (Is Coming To Town)"

23-year-old Ben Asbury makes breezy guitar music that conjures The Byrds as well as newer acts like Woods and Kurt Vile. On his debut self-titled album, Asbury layers his penchant for folksy moodiness around pleasant vocal harmonies and shards of psychedelic noise, resulting in an intriguing 1960's-inflected stoner pop record.

Carla Bozulich "Boy"
"One Hard Man"

Like a female answer to Scott Walker, Carla Bozulich has made an avant-garde album that mixes rock, blues, jazz, pop, and industrial noise to staggering effect. Both in-your-face challenging and subtly moving, Boy is the kind of "pop" record rarely made anymore; Challenging the way we view albums these days as a set of instant gratification "singles", and encouraging us to listen deeper.

The Third Act Podcast - Episode 36

On the thirty-sixth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is back to providing dear listeners with an episode over two hours long. That runtime is filled with discussion of Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL and and Darren Aronofsky's NOAH.

The Third Act Podcast - Bonus Episode 10

On the latest bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, Christian, Jericho, and Armando talk Hayao Miyazaki's swan song THE WIND RISES, a film that uses the master's usual gorgeous hand-drawn animation in order to tell a historically relevant tale about aeronautical engineering and the power of flight. As the crew gush over Miyazaki's place in the annuals of cinema and shamefully admit that they need to watch more of his work, everything takes on a nostalgic feeling of idealism. The wind indeed rises inside the garage.

The Third Act Podcast - Episode 34

On the thirty-fourth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew dives into a discussion of two independent 2014 films. The first is called PIT STOP, which chronicles the relationships of two gay men in a small Texas town and features an actress that listeners may or may not be familiar with. The second film, A FIELD IN ENGLAND, is the latest from prolific British director Ben Wheatley, a psychedelic period piece that no single sentence could synopsize. Each of the Third Act crew also do their due diligence by watching a long overdue film in the brand new segment "Quenching the Queue of Shame." Enjoy!

The Third Act Podcast - Bonus Episode 9

On the latest bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, a palpable sense of dislocation can be felt in the garage as Christian and Jericho soldier on without Armando in order to grasp the cryptic themes behind Godrey Reggio's arthouse flick "Visitors" . For the first time in the history of the podcast, there's also a 'Recently Watched' segment that sprawls, along with an additionally meandering discussion on Reggio's baffling experiment, complete with the kind of psuedo-intellectual babble that the crew is known for.

Symbiotic Recommends: 10 Albums – February 2014

 


by Jericho Cerrona March 6, 2014


Temples "Sun Structures"
 

"Shelter Song"

There's been a whole rash of psych-rock revivalists as of late, but UK four-piece Temples have crafted one of the best in the genre with Sun Structures, a delirious blend of 1960's vocal harmonies, 12-string guitar, and psychedelia that evokes The Beatles and Marc Bolan without feeling like a patronizing rip-off. Nostalgia of the best kind.

Sick Thoughts "Terminal Teen Age"
 

"Blood Red"

16-year-old Baltimore native Drew Olsen has made one of the purest, most visceral DIY punk albums in quite some time with his one-man debut Terminal Teen Age. It's all power chords, muddled yelping, and blown out walls of dissonant fuzz, as if the ghost of 80's-era Oblivians and Jay Reatard's back catalog got into a drunken fist fight. Great riffs, and lots of youthful rage.

East India Youth "Total Strife Forever"
 

"Dripping Down"

With nods to the work of Brian Eno and Steve Reich, William Doyle has ditched the indie rock trappings of his former band Doyle & The Fourfathers for a trip into melodic electronica as East India Youth. Total Strife Forever, beyond being a nifty Foals pun, is laptop experimentation of the highest order; all hypnotic synths, cacophonous drone, acid-house beats, and magnificent crescendos. Wondrous abstract pop music spanning outward into the digital ether.

 

Damien Jurado "Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son"
 

"Silver Timothy"

Singer/songwriter Damien Jurado has finally abandoned the days of sparse acoustic folk and fully embraced his inner psychedelic muse, crating a spiritual sequel to 2012's masterful Maraqopa with lush, and dub-influenced, instrumentation that beautifully accentuates his falsetto harmonies. More buzzing keyboards and wafting reverb than gentle finger-picking, and probably the most ambitious Jurado release yet.

The Sweets "Greatest Hits"
 

"Hard to Tell"

Ramshackle pop courtesy of Zach Romeo and Justin Hrabovsky from Salem NC, whose penchant for jaunty melodies and sloppy garage rock is splattered over the course of 18 tracks on this limited edition cassette release. It's all recorded in appropriately lo-fi fashion with catchy tunes, especially on the rollicking, Strokes-influenced gem "Hard to Tell." Infectious and essential stuff.

Cymbals "The Age of Fracture"
 

"The Natural World"

This London four-piece fit in nicely with the recent surge of 80's-inflected dance/pop artists toiling in the digital world, and on their second album The Age of Fracture, they deliver a dense combination of Britpop, Human League-esque new wave and droning synthesizers that will make even the most cynical detractor of this style of music bob their head and move their feet.

 

Helms Alee "Sleepwalking Sailors"
 

"Pinniped"

Seattle trio Helms Alee might not be the nastiest metal band on the planet, but their ability to combine melody and heaviness reaches majestic heights on their latest opus Sleepwalking Sailors. The songs ebb and flow in cinematic movements here, with syncopated guitar riffs, sludgy bass, and tortured wails working in perfect harmony. Atmospheric doom-pop metal for fans of Torche and Baroness.

 

designer//bbigpigg "Split cassette with bbigpigg"
 

"Deer Point (Designer)"

Two noise-punk bands get together and unleash a split cassette of varying degrees of glorious abrasiveness, courtesy of Bufu Records. In between shards of squealing guitars, manic yelling, and blown out speaker dissonance, there's actually some pretty catchy songwriting. Boston's Designer and Brooklyn's bbigpigg more or less make angular post-punk mayhem that's clearly geared towards damaging your eardrums.

 

 

Jae X Cohen "Pennies+"
 

"Fridgewater"

Producer Cohenbeats and rapper Jeremiah Jae have collaborated on what they have tagged "a series of short, sometimes improvised ideas and concepts." Whatever they want to call it, there's no doubt that the resulting EP is stellar left-field hip-hop chock full of jazzy psychedelic production and highlighted by Jae's relaxed flow.

Clearance "Greensleeve "7"
 

"Drive-Out!"

Let's get all the inevitable Malkmus comparisons out of the way right off the bat. Yes, Clearance invoke Pavement, but this isn't just "dad rock" for the hipster crowd. On their latest "7 Greensleeve, the Chicago band give the whole college rock tag a revitalizing jolt of energy and playful lyricism, resulting in a melancholy dash of 90's nostalgia that retains its own identity.

The Third Act Podcast - Episode 33

On the thirty-third episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, Christian, Armando, and Jericho talk the tragic passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, get a visit from everyone's favorite 2-year-old cinephile for a quick take on THE LEGO MOVIE, and get into some serious spreadsheet number crunching and headline-grabbing film news. In their first foray into 2014 fare, the gang join Elijah Wood and John Cusack in reviewing the genre potboiler GRAND PIANO, find out if Quentin Tarantino's hyperbolic praise of Israeli torture thriller BIG BAD WOLVES is warranted, and then end the discussion with a surprise "recently watched" pick that seems to have lingered with a certain member of the podcast.
