Hello everybody, and welcome to a very special post! This particular topic will cover one of my favorite Podcasts. I’ve been listening to podcasts for as long as I can remember, and always love the diverse subject that they go into. You can imagine my delight when I found out about this one! I discovered this gem when researching information about Kevin MacLeod’s music. He did a very in depth interview on how Kevin produces his Royalty-Free Music. The Podcast is simply titled Composer Quest: A Songwriting and Music Composition Podcast. This podcast covers a variety of musical topics from Royalty Free Music, to Slot Machine Music. The host of this podcast is Charlie McCarron, an incredibly talented Composer and Producer that lives in Minneapolis. From  He has a very quirky personality, and vast knowledge of everything music. Every week, for four years (1/2/13-1/24/17, he interviewed a different composer about a different genre of music. He would give various composing tips, and explain the inner workings in a way that was easy to understand. There’s 177 episodes to choose from, so the possibilities are nearly endless. The best part is that all of the Podcasts are completely free, and easily accessible on his website, charliemccarron.com, and on iTunes.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 163

Paradise on E [Final?] by BOUNC3  2005

As a teenager, I frequently went on Newgrounds.com to look at the new music. The music of Newgrounds was put into a section of the website called the Audio Portal. I remember one afternoon, I was on the site, looking for new music, and I found this gem. My jaw dropped as soon as the chorus started playing. This is an excellent Electronic piece with an absolutely incredible chorus. It starts with a slow tempo, and then gradually increases as the song progresses. When the song reaches the 68 second mark, your ears are met with one of the catchiest beats ever made! I highly recommend to piece to everyone, and I bet that some of you will get a nostalgia rush!

Asher’s Jukebox Part 159

Rock Club by Anamanaguchi from the album “Scott Pilgrim Vs.The World : The Game OST” 2010 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org)

Let me start off by saying that I absolutely adore Scott Pilgrim, and think that the film was a hidden gem. Then, the video game was created, and along with it, a completely badass soundtrack. This is one of my favorite tracks from the OST, and by god, it’s freaking glorious! It starts with an retro guitar and equally awesome drums. Then, the other synthesizers and electronic instruments start to create a wonderfully chiptune-esque beat. My favorite part of the song has to be the chorus, when all of the instruments simultaneously play together, creating one of the coolest retro beats of all time. The song completely lives up to its title, it freaking rocks!!! I highly recommend this piece to lovers of Electronic music and epic video game-style chord progression.
