About The Sounds in My Head
Musically The Sounds in My Head attempts to be fairly eclectic, but probably tends to lean towards "indie pop" music. Also, I try to squeeze in as much left-wing propaganda as possible between tracks.
SPECIAL “ALL WOMEN” EPISODE! There She Goes - Hazel English Fast Lane - Genevva Crazy Horse - Genevva Instinct That I Wanna Know - Jade Imagine Back and Forth - Jade Imagine Principia - En Attendant Ana The Cut Off - En Attendant Ana The Drinking Song - Nellie Mckay Make a Wish - Nellie Mckay Le Temple Volant - Crumb & Melody's Echo Chamber Apathy - White Poppy Happy - White Poppy Til We Run Out of Air - Hatchie This episode features a clip of Julia Steinberg's testimony in front of Congress on November 9, where she talks about the rise of antisemitism on college campuses and its modern roots in the conflict theory of the oppressor vs. oppressed.

He has a lot of videos about Israel offering a pro-Israeli, but also highly informed and even-handed perspective. I think he’s fantastic and recommend his content.
SEASON 20 EPISODE 16: OCTOBER 23RD, 2023 SPECIAL "HALLOWEEN" EPISODE! Business Class War Paint - Chemtrails Halloween Theme - Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band Stranger Things Theme - Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band Haunted Sea - The Budos Band Come See the Creature - Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!

Mark Z. Danielewski Halloween - Matt Pond PA This episode features a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher where Bill talks about conflict theory and how we got to the point where liberal people think the morally right position is to side with gruesome terrorists. It's not halloween related, but I for one sure do find it scary!
Season 20 Episode 15 Annihilation Party - Silver Firs Up - Girl Ray Hold Tight - Girl Ray Alison - Strawberry Runners Look Like This - Strawberry Runners King of Wands - Housewife らりらりらん (Rari Rariran) - Never Young Beach 帰ろう (rentrer chez soi) - Never Young Beach You're So?! - The Hannah Barberas Happy Winter - The Hannah Barberas Darling We've Got Time - Copeland James Girl Supreme - Σtella This episode features a clip from HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, where panelist Sarah Isgur of ABC News and other things (I’d never heard of her, but apparently, she's a conservative of some sort?) makes some good points about the unexpected effects of the increase of small donors in the political sphere.
Season 20 Episode 14 Different Now - Courtney Barnett Life's a Joke - Islands Headlines - Islands I'll Never Make It - Cut Worms Too Bad - Cut Worms Act I - Worn-Tin Une autre vie - Evelyne Brochu Paris -Evelyne Brochu I Want You - Carter Vail Honey I'm Afraid - Bluhm I Just Keep on Feeling Fine - Bluhm Trust Me - Barnaby Keen This episode features a clip from Strike Force Five, the podcast featuring Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers, John Oliver, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon, which they created to raise money for their staffs during the ongoing strike. I really enjoy their dynamic and it’s so fun that they all clearly like each other as compared to the olden days when there was so much animus between the late-night hosts. I pulled a clip of Steven Colbert telling the story of how he met his wife.
Season 20 Episode 13 Rather Blue - Jacuzzi Boys Keep It in Line - Broncho Get in My Car - Broncho Hard Times (All Around) - The Nude Party Ride On - The Nude Party Satellite of Love - Dean & Britta You Were Right About One Thing - Locate S,1 Blue Meaniez - Locate S,1 Heart of Scorpio - Alice Boman feat. Cornelia Murr Better Days - Zach Keim Alice - Zach Keim Twenty Seven - CjayQ This episode features a clip of a YouTuber andewr reflecting on HBO’s How To with John Wilson, one of the best things I’ve ever seen. If like me, you missed hearing about it, it just wrapped on the 3rd and final season. There’s six 25 minute long episodes per season, and they are nothing like anything you’ve ever seen on TV before. Part personal video essay, part comedy, part poignant vignettes of everyday people. It’s the most NYC thing ever and it’s truly something special. Don’t miss it!
Season 20 Episode 12 Take a Rest - Cobra Man Yards / Gardens - Kate Bollinger Lady in the Darkest Hour - Kate Bollinger The Mauritian Badminton Doubles Champion, 1973 - Hamish Hawk Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want (Live for Hidden Door) - Hamish Hawk Take On Me (But It's Raining) - Alfie Beelzebub's AI Paul McCartney Creep - aionefuture's AI Frank Sinatra and Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox Naturally - Bonny Doon You Can't Stay the Same - Bonny Doon feat. Waxahatchee Wolf - Yeah Yeah Yeahs Different Today - Yeah Yeah Yeahs Spitting Off the Edge of the World (Lush Version) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs Nintendo 64 - Aaron Joseph Russo This episode features a clip from The Urbanist Agenda podcast where Jason and Adam talk about how annoying it is that cars vs bikes has become a culture war issue in Europe, as traditional conservative parties have tried to court right-wing party voters only to lose votes to them. A trend witnessed in Sweden as well.
Season 20 Episode 11 I Wanna Love Him So Bad - Fascinations Grand Chorus The Little Hand - The Ballet I Don't Feel Like Dancing - The Ballet Aux larmes (To tears) - Clément Froissart Un jour à minuit (One day at midnight) - Clément Froissart Gnossienne No. 5 (French 79 Rework of Erik Satie) - French 79 Gnossienne No. 1 (Kid Francescoli Rework of Erik Satie) - Kid Francescoli In Gardens Under Evergreen - Pure Bathing Culture Treasure Pleasure Wonder Gem - Pure Bathing Culture ILYSM - Wild Pink This episode features a clip of Kumail Nanjiani on ABC’s Good Morning America (of all places) talking about his Hulu limited series Welcome to Chippendales. He produced it with his wife and stars in the series. I missed it when it came out late last year, but watched it recently knowing nothing about the history, and thought it was fascinating and just a really great series. So I highly recommend checking it out, and the less you know about it beforehand, the better.
Season 20 Episode 10 Life Waits for Nothing - Phantom Youth Don't Fade Away - Beach Fossils Tough Love - Beach Fossils I Wish - Dayaway A Brief Dream of Sun - Dayaway Milanesa al Pan - Juan Wauters feat. Zoe Gotusso Modus Operandi - Juan Wauters feat. Frankie Cosmos Big Black Void - TV Girl All the Way Through - TV Girl Shame - TV Girl What the Echoes Say - Jeanines Tilt in Your Eye - Jeanines Riding Into the Sunset in a Busted Car - Free Cake for Every Creature In Your Car - Free Cake for Every Creature Trepanation Party - Voxtrot This episode features an edited-down “41 Lessons from My 41 Years” list presented by Nate B. Jones on TikTok. It was too long to include the whole thing, but I really don’t disagree with any of his list. This kinda thing easily veers too far into trite, but there can be a lot of truth in well-composed bumper stickers, and I think Nate hits them all well.
Season 20 Episode 9 Good Friday - Ham Sandwich Newfound Oxygen - Steady Holiday The Balance - Steady Holiday Coma Culture - Coma Culture Bad Habits - Coma Culture Virtual Dancer - Group Rhoda Din För Evigt - Kanot Bottenmannen - Kanot Dee Dee - Nimrawd Quicksilver (single version) - Nimrawd Aquamarine - Hand Habits This episode features a clip of a CNN Town Hall where former NJ governor and Trump lackey Chris Christie recounts how Trump gave him COVID, which very nearly killed him, then lied about it, naturally.
Season 20 Episode 8 Hot Blue Summer - Dayaway Shooting Star - Sylvie Further Down the Road (Maston Remix) - Sylvie Waiting for the Band - Nicky Hopkins You Have Something Special - Joanna Sternberg This Is Not Who I Want To Be - Joanna Sternberg I Never Get Lonesome - Arthur Russell Iowa Dream - Arthur Russell Wan Ka Helaa - Dur-Dur Band Int. Riyo - Dur-Dur Band Int. Love Missive - Courrier Sud Fool Moon - Courrier Sud Trapdoor - Los Bitchos This episode features a clip from a recent episode of Sam Harris’ podcast Making Sense, where he talks about the incomprehensible waste of collective attention the human race has wasted on about the least important human to ever be born. I didn’t include much of it, when he gets into a media analysis and so on, but I’m 100% with him on all of it.

He is a immigrant from the UK leading the effort to unionize Spotify. Sweden is one of the most heavily unionized countries in the world, but the large tech sector is a strange outlier and he is hoping to change that.
Season 20 Episode 4 - SPECIAL “MUSIC IN FRENCH!” EPISODE! Soulevant - Cléa Vincent Contact - Jarvis Cocker Le cannibale - Juniore Je me suis fait tout petit - Juniore B1 - Ce soir - Kumisolo Kabuki femme fatale - Kumisolo La Femme aux Faux Cils - We are Enfant Terrible La poudre aux yeux - Lisa LeBlanc Tite gêne - Lisa LeBlanc Apprenti - Dumas Fille Sauvage - Richard Anthony Bohemian Rhapsody - French - Freedom Fry Les idées roses - Louïse Papier Sur le pavé - Holden This episode features a clip from Jim Gaffigan’s album Quality Time about eating French Cheese, as well as a very old Louis CK bit about being approached in NYC by a French guy who needs directions. Light, but relatively topical fare for this episode. heh.
Season 20 Episode 3 Organic Tea - Jacob King We, Us the Pharaohs - Maxwell Farrington & Le SuperHomard I Had It All - Maxwell Farrington & Le SuperHomard Always on the Telephone - The Ladybug Transistor Stranger - Tiny Microphone feat. Gary Olson Mine Forever - Lord Huron At Sea - Lord Huron Blameless - Zach Schimpf Mind Like a Sitting Duck - Zach Schimpf Time Bomb - Jacklen Ro Side by Side - Jacklen Ro More Than Chemical - Homephone This episode features a brief clip from FOX’s The Family Guy which made me LOL, and a TikTok by @philjamesson about his incredibly successful social media empire.

His co-host for the inaugural episode was Adam Something who shows off his pitch-perfect Slavoj Žižek impression as they talk about living in human-friendly cities.

It may be a joke, but I think the plan could be just crazy enough to work. Mental note: From now on, always refer to Planned Parenthood and their ilk as angel factories.

It was a fun interview, and while I’ve always enjoyed his media appearances, but prior to this interview I never knew he was a kindred spirit with regard to this topic.
