Rather than do a regular format JALP, I instead opted to do a "Best of Beefy" style episode. I picked five of my favorite tracks from my ol' pal Beef Thompson, including one that

Intro: MC Lars – "Download This Song"
Z's 1st interlude: "I am not Beef Thompson."
But this is truly an experiment in sound.
Track 1: Beefy – "Creative Process"
I love this track. Though I realize I am likely in the minority.
Z's 2nd interlude: "We are gonna fast-forward a year to his Tube Technology LP."
A landmark nerdcore release, to be sure.
Track 2: Beefy – "Nerdcore for Life"
A fine performance by Beefy, and a really phenomenal beat by Snyder.
Z's 3rd interlude: "From an off-the-cuff comment made by YT."
Yet another example of how YTCracker is perpetually wrecking your shit. Unbeknownst to you.
Track 3: The Grammar Club – "Balloon Flight"
A selection from one of my favorite EPs of all time.
Z's 4th interlude: "Probably one of the greatest pop rock/hip-hop hybrids I've ever heard."
Track 4: Beefy – "Table Top"
It was hard for me to pick a fave track from Rolling Doubles. In the end, this one edged out "Olly Olly Oxen Free."
Z's final interlude: "I am going close out by doing the unthinkable; leaking a brand new Beefy song of my own."
Yep, a leaked track. From me. Inconceivable.
Track 5: Beefy – "20-Sided Rhyme"
From the (hopefully) forthcoming compilation of the same name. I'd love to know what you think of it.
And there you go, folks. I'm on track to bring you your regular scheduled podcast at month's end. There's been a number of exciting new musical developments, so anticipate an un-themed show.
Also, let me publicly thank the JALP crew for doing such an amazing job with this year's Podswap. It is by far my favorite episode of RFH to date… Although it also reveals my deepest, darkest secret; that I am fairly unessential to the whole Radio Free Hipster process! ;)
