The Speed of Things, Episode Nine: Listening Local

elias-hulk2

Earlier this week, I appeared on The Speed of Things, a podcast curated by my friend and former music-scribbling colleague Erik Highter.

We bonded last year over a shared trip to Gilead Fest, and looking back on the months since, that event has proved to be something of a tipping point for both of us. In the podcast, we talk about the grind of running a music publication, the inevitable burnout that led us both to step away from immersion in the Internet-based metal scene, and how RJKT came to exist.

Also, Baxter Holland shines a light on Elias Hulk‘s 1970 proto-metal gem, Unchained.
