The Unblinking Ear Podcast 6/22/17


Above is an image from the Instagram of Peteski of this isn't happiness (occasionally NSFW), who was just profiled on Dangerous Minds and sometimes pairs the images he posts with songs he heard on this podcast or on my WFMU fill-ins.

I'm finally returning the hat tip. Or I'm just stealing content. However you want to frame it.

 I'm not sure why anyone would want to smell like punks. We'll have to ask the host of our sister podcast, the Unblinking Nostril.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 2/23/17



If you enjoy this podcast (and if you're reading this, I hope you would at this point) and live in New York (god help you), you're certainly welcome to come see/hear me DJ live in person with my pal Jenn at young person gathering place Alphaville. Live podcasts are all the rage now and this is sort of like that. Except no ads for Bonobos. So not at all.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 1/12/17

(Above: Kenny Omega, who had a pretty good 2016 himself)

My best podcast of the year is usually the first one. Why? Because I've read a whole bunch of other people's best of the year list from the preceding year and cherry picked my favorites from what I hadn't heard. This podcast is truly standing on the shoulders of giants. (Giants, in the case, usually meaning former fanzine editors in their late 40s/early 50s.)

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 12/15/16

From the collection of Kevin Pederson 

Another clichéd podcast to close out a year who's sheer awfulness has become a cliché. Enjoy it before we all meet our doom.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 11/17/16


This is the first Unblinking Ear Podcast of this brave new era where facts, reason, qualifications and general decency don't matter any more. I feel the word "fiasco" will acheive a new prominence in the coming years. Anyway, here's some tunes to get you through these dark times.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 10/13/16

So I'm going to go ahead and say this podcast is now monthly. This not by design. Not really be necessity either. More by convenience. That means the next podcast we'll have a new president elect. I'm pulling for Tiffani Mims. She looks like a nice lady.

Do you find the above GIF as hilarious as I do? Probably not but I'm to lazy to think of anything to write to accompany this podcast so you're stuck with it.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 7/7/16


I'm going to forgo my usual apology for the lateness of this podcast and instead, simply tell you what's been going on in Unblinking Ear HQ in the interim:

Our showcases for the Northside Fest were enormously successful (read: adequate). If you missed out, you can hear the Gotobeds set on NYC Taper.

Our name your price digital single series Office Supplies continued with entries from Trés Oui and Big Bliss. We also have a tote/record bag (as modeled by Taylor above) available for sale! It comes with a free download of our Serious Rockers comp (though you should really own it already).

I did a pair of fill-ins on WFMU, one my usual nonsense and one a "dad rock" special for Father's Day. Not sure what dad rock is? Don't worry. It's made up.

Finally, Jared Leibowich is on tour, including a Brooklyn show with Big Quiet and Big Bliss. Go see him. He's nice.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast 5/12/16


Two months ago I promised big news from Unblinking Ear HQ. (And I think I may have actually delivered.) But the Unblinking Ear Records Official Northside Showcase is probably even bigger news. Contemplate that while you listen to this array of specially chosen musical selections.
