It's Another Recap Session...

Hi and welcome fans and bands to another Underground Recap Session. These are the episodes that I really end up enjoying the most. After all of the hard work and planning is done I finally get to sit around with my good friends and just talk. While we do discuss the music we've collected throughout the month we always end up chatting about so much more as well and I never really know in the end where that conversation will go. Thank you to Erik from Hifidelics.com and of course my partner Travis from the band The Day The Sky Fell for joining me this month. They both did a great job, Thank you as well to Jimmy Hinchcliff for battling the Google plugin to join us for a pretty interesting short interview.

This is one of those months that has me reflecting a bit. From where I started two years ago to where the show is now. Our goal was never to become some giant in the industry, was never to really have an objective, but more to feature new bands, artists, and musicians that weren't played. My goal as producer and co founder was to try and stay fluid in my role, and let the concept organically evolve. Since that first episode that Tony and I did recording our hangout through the garageband app to this episode the show has come a long way. We are still doing what we set out to do. Still highlighting great independent music. We haven't sold out in anyway. Still uncensored and unedited, Some ideas haven't panned out as I had hoped while some aspects have taken on a life of their own. Tony and Adam have gone, Nicole and Johan have come and gone. There has been plenty of changes drama control issues, and more behind the scenes problems then a kardashian picnic, but the show has been left to evolve. So while I'm left missing some, and resenting others, I owe them all a giant Thank you for helping make The Unsigned Countdown and Underground Recap Sessions better in the time that they were involved. Thank you as well to Jacob and Travis for sticking around, Charles for coming on board, and to every band that has let us feature them. Nothing great is ever easy, but while it's never been simple to pull off. In the end of every month, when I finally get to sit down and just hit that record button and talk. I'm always and will always be super grateful

S2.9.25 September Edition...

There is out there in this world a great many ailments. There always seems to be far fewer remedies. There are charities, relief funds, activists, supporters, ribbons, care givers, benefits, the list goes on and on in an endless stream of ideas all used to ease the discomfort brought on in and by the world we live in. You can sometimes get a bit confused as to where to offer you support. How can you help as many people as possible? Just take a good look at your Facebook Timeline and you'll see my point. Like tossing a bucket of water on any given fire, we hope that others will be tossing as well and by doing this the cure will be discovered and we can save the world one fire at a time. I wonder and have wondered a lot whether this is the right way to go about this. There has been no doubt of any worthiness or need. Nor is there any lack of heros in this world. People at their cores are selfless, noble, and giving creatures.

My thought on this subject was revolutionary to some, and confusing to others. My choice was to support something that in turn would support everything. Something that brings relief to the sick, and brought joy and inspiration to them as well as those heros. To you. Music is the air, the gravity, the heartbeat. It fills us up, keeps us grounded, and lets us know every moment that we hear it, that we're alive. There are more songs out there then variety of insects, more then plants of the planet. There are more lyrics and cords written the stars in the sky it seems and therefor music is exactly like an element. it should be on the periodic table it's so essential to life. Whats even more interesting is to think that this element is man made and created by every single human on this planet. Music is simple and complex, it's inspirational, and revolutionary, it's dark, and moody, it's relatable, and constant. it's not a cure but it is a remedy for anyone and everyone and any and every moment any one and every one needs it. So i'm going to stand up, clap for, thank, and support those brave and talented fighters for cure, those creators of that remedy.

Thank you one and all for listening to another great episode of "The Unsigned Countdown". A broadcast devoted to the feature, promotion, and review of the amazing unsigned and Independent talent out there waiting to be listened to. Our goal isn't to get you to love every musician band or artist we feature. Our goal is to bring you new music, or a new sound to your earbaslls and ask you to support those artists that created the sounds you enjoyed. Our goal is to offer feedback, and support to those artists, and to offer it all to everyone for free. We only promote those in our music community, but every month we invite ten more bands and even more to our community. Then on Christmas we open that up to all when we ask for Unsigned and Independent original or public domain classic cover Holiday tracks to fill our annual Stitcher Christmas Special.

Happy Labor Day!....

So every episode takes a lot of time and effort. Finding bands, matching the list with hosts, recording song bumpers, lots and lots of research, editing editing and more editing, and of course setting up recording and editing some more the Underground Recap Sessions into the podcast. Uploading the episodes on a weekly basis. and promoting each one. Thats not even the behind the scenes stuff like the google drive top secret list that the judges use to rank and review each song, interviews when we can get them, Facebook events, or emails. All of that and many more tiny details I'm sure I'm forgetting each and every month. Only to come to this moment in the week. Monday when I realize that after all of that hard work I need to write the blog portion of the episode

This is the most difficult part for me. I'm no writer, but what I think is even worse is that I don't think anyone even reads it. I do want to thank Travis and Erik for sitting in this month in some episodes that are a pretty far departure from our usual featured music. We were blessed to receive a wave of great music submissions all at once back in May and while they are still rolling in I thought I would take a month to think outside the box and ask some of the bands and musicians I respect and listen to if we could add them to this special month. Thank you to each of these artists for agreeing. It was a huge leap of faith saying yes to having their songs included in a podcast known for featuring hard and heavy music. These are not hard and heavy songs but they are some of the good stuff out there and I'm proud to say I created this list

as well if you might like to be a part of one of our now famous aband and fan chat live feed interviews. 

Sit back and enjoy the lighter side of the Independent music scene. If you are one of those two people that read this let me know by tweeting @jarcodes #GreatShow #EpisodeS2.9.0. That would make my day. These episodes as well as this podcast have been produced by Jarcodes Productions. If you would like us to feature promote and review one of your tracks feel free to email me at jarcode01@gmail.com. Include the audio file or a link where we can download the file from, a brief biography including but not limited to location, genre, and collaborators, and band links.
