5. Dalton - Wood Frames (Self Released)

"Dalton is the solo project of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Nate Harar. His self-titled debut EP is inspired by an eclectic array of sounds spanning several decades.
Harar launched his one-man venture in the spring of 2011 playing bass, guitar, synthesizer and drums while recording in his apartment-studio. He soon emerged with a unique brand of low-fi pop songs influenced by bands like Talking Heads, David Bowie, Pixies and Peter Gabriel.

Prior to embarking on this recent project, Harar sang and played guitar with indie-rock band Sugar, It’s Eli and co-founded the electronic funk band Swetpanther.

Harar has recently filled out the Dalton line-up and is currently rehearsing for shows in the fall."

Deconstructionist cover art

11. Giles Corey - Awake Now (Self Released)
This is the shortest track (23 mins) on the new Giles Corey album  "Deconstructionist". It's true to say it's probably not the easiest listen in the world but well worth the effort. The full album can be downloaded from Giles Corey's Bandcamp page from which is stated...

"**THIS IS NOT A REGULAR ALBUM. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BUY.** 

Over an hour of music, designed to induce trances, possession states, and out-of-body experiences. Not a "record," but a philosophical tool. 

Accompanied by booklet exploring the why and how and history of trance, the illusion of the self, and why some people commit suicide, ignore stab victims on the street, and have their consciousness shaped by light and sound. 

PLEASE NOTE: 

-This album must be listened to through headphones. 

-It his highly recommended that you read the accompanying pdf before listening to the music. 

-If you have epilepsy or a history of mental illness, you may want to speak with a doctor before listening to this album."

  5. Sadly the link is dead. This is the ONLY Pod Fodder I am missing since the beginning :(

    Nevermind, I'm sure the other 180 or so I have now will suffice. But if someone does re-up...
