This episode leaps right out of the gate with a scorching introductory number, courtesy of Honeycone (no idea), called “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show.” it also features disco-ish versions of classic rock tunes (Floyd, Zep, T. Rex & T. Petty). I also did a “double-shot” of songs I don’t care about that were remixed by people I do like (NIN vs. El-P, Britney Spears vs. Justice). That’s a gimmick, right?
Oh, & you have to listen for the song “Heartstones,” which has been living in my head for a few months now. It’s a sorta contempo-throwback dance track with a sax part that tips my love-hate relationship with that instrument firmly into sweet, sweet puppy love.
