Bah Humbug – End of Season 2

The holidays are coming round once again and as such my work and personal schedules have been ramping up. It was just about a year ago when I put the original Thee Under Channel Podcast on hiatus and now i’m back with similar news.

Through the months of November and December both Discussting Views and Under The Tree will be on break. Unfortunately working in retail doesn’t allow me the luxury of a consistent schedule to continue both shows. This however does not mean there will not be any more podcasts.

I am going to take this break as an opportunity to establish Thee Under Channel’s youtube page with a series of mini pods. Whenever time allows I will be getting together with someone to record a conversation(maybe Mickey, Dirty, The Tree or others) and will clip the best of these talks to be posted.

I am also going to work on doing solo recordings of myself ranting about current events that are taking place, similar to Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast.

As we approach the end of the year i’ll do another post to let you guys know when the weekly shows will be returning.

Thank you to everyone who has checked us out.

Hey Guys,

Stopping in now to let you know there will be a break on new podcasts over the next two weeks while the wife and I head over to gay Paris.

We’ve done a good job building momentum with both shows recently and by all means plan to continue but sometimes you gotta just take alittle time to do some sightseeing, drink some wine, and butcher a language you really don’t give a shit about.

If you guys want to reach out to me, use the contact form linked at the top of the page and ill see you in two weeks.

Thanks,
Robert Under

blis. – No One Loves You (2017)

This albums been in my life for one day.

As I drove into work this morning, whoever operates the @FreeThrowEmo(Cory I think) twitter had mentioned it, so I threw it on.

First track I clicked on was Take Me Home, which happened to be the single so it worked out pretty well. A emotional anthem that hangs on lightly sung verses and big crushing screams over fuzzy garage barrages. The lyrics speak of learning truths behind the backs of absent parents. I thought I saw someone mention Nirvana’s “Sliver” when reviewing this track and the video definitely delivers on that comparison.

It’s been a standout track so far on the album but there’s a couple others that have demanded a few replays. “Lost Boy” makes a fair attempt at pressing your under the head of a shoegazey wave but the vocals pull you up and out towards the very heavens they are questioning.

Lyrics across a lot of the album feature religious imagery as their backdrop when telling stories about the struggles one faces. Credit to the songwriter because the repeated touches on religion could’ve come off as heavy handed, though on this album they never feel like they sacrifice the weight of the subject for the sake of sounding wise.

Towards the end of the album “Pathetic” tackles being on the losing side of an abusive relationship and not understanding why. Reading the lyrics as you listen to the track reveals a lot more going on underneath the soundscape then just what your hear upfront.

Somewhere I saw them mentioned as being similar to Brand New. I’ve never listened to them but if this is how they sound I think i’m a Brand New fan.
