I mean, who releases a double album in 2017? KRIEF, that's who. Because he's badass (and also reasons). Automanic was released in late 2016, and you're in for an absolute treat when you sit down to listen to it. We sat down with Krief (and his 15 guitars!) in his Montreal home studio last week to hear the story behind the album(/s?). You can learn more at Krief's website: http://www.krief.ca/ please subscribe if you like what you hear and you can also now support The Badassery Show on Patreon.

We're back with part 2 of the Videoman interview! Videoman are an indie rock band out of Montreal fronted by an opera singer. That singer is Pasquale. Yes, he interviews himself and his band and yes, it gets existential. If you didn't catch part 1 check out our episode 1 to catch up. In part 2 the guys get deeper into their influences and how records are designed and delivered in today's modern music landscape. And we kick off with 'the big question' we ask everyone we interview. We're just missing Costa the drummer who will make an appearance soon, promise. We hope you enjoy this one and if so, subsribe and share and rate and do all the things!
Get ready to witness us popping our podcasting cherry! In this action-packed 4 minutes... what WASN'T happening? You've got Pasquale unboxing our brand new podcasting mics, Kim telling random stories, Tom (honorary Badassery host, shoutouts) playing Led Zeppelin on guitar, a bit of Frasier playing in the background, and of course, where would we be without some Nietschze for good measure. This behind the scenes clip sums us up precisely. Enjoy and subscribe badasses!
Today we were triggered by trying to find a copy of the new Zelda game and decided to vlog about it. It got us talking about other gaming musics and then we got onto Oscars things and Season 2 of Stranger Things (the countdown has begun!) and soundtrack things and other things of the pop culture variety. More videos coming soon, please subscribe on here and on iTunes to the Podcast. We heart you!
Check out what Pasquale wrote about Stranger Things and nostalgia: https://www.thesoundprinciples.com/single-post/2016/07/28/Stranger-Things-The-Suburbs-and-The-Nostalgia-Aesthetic
When Pasquale caught the news that Jordan Peterson had a composer on his podcast he was suuuuper triggered. If you've been listening to the first eps of The Badassery podcast or watched what we've posted so far you'll have gleaned that Pasquale thinks Jordan is alright...He made a response video immediately and the next thing we knew Samuel (said composer) was in touch to set up a call! This is their Skype conversation, composer to composer, geeking out on all things across the spectrum of music theory. Enjoy!
