Releasing a second album after your debut LP received praise across the board can often be a daunting process but our next In Sessionist seemingly has the art of musical evolution down to a tee.
Scottish producer Grum released his debut album ‘Heartbeats’ back in 2010 to widespread critical acclaim. His throwback 80’s electro style acted as perfect dancefloor ammo and the more down tempo tracks are more than suited for your after party crack ons.
Skip to 2013 and in the three years since his debut, Grum has been busy. He’s been honing his craft, consuming more music than ever and now he’s back with second album that doesn’t sound like your typical Grum record. This we like.
His passion for providing club ready music hasn’t changed and ‘Human Touch’ shows a more mature approach to record making. The tracks are deeper, more focused and with this in mind Grum has created a truly unique In Session mix that showcases his styles and tastes perfectly. Tracks from Pryda, KiNK, John Digweed and Hot Since 82 herald a new era for Grum, one that we can’t wait to witness.

"The plan was that the Muslims, after serving their function, would be exposed to empowered Western women, broadband porn, supermarkets, sneering satire, and droves of atheistic teachers and professors who would make their childish Islamic certainties disappear in a puff of smug logic. The assumption was that within a generation or two the former cannon fodder of multiculturalism, so successfully deployed against those stuffy old conservatives and prickly nationalists, would have settled down into the rootless, decultured masses that Leftism craves as the raw material for its utopias."
Podcasting on the road (literally), Aaron asks why anybody lives where there’s snow and liberals, tells the sad story about how the only memento he has from his childhood is a 1970 Hoover vacuum, explains why there is no longer any shame in collecting a government check, gives a helluva plug for Ranger Self Defense, and finishes off with a MANDATORY rant about racism and how the left has just destroyed people of color.

This year, North Country Public Radio has been looking in-depth at New York’s Rockefeller drug laws and how those laws reshaped our state over the last forty years. This week, the series will focus on the North Country, which is home to more than a dozen…
One of the reasons I’m a big fan of Nerdist is the way Nerdist’s interests regularly align with my own. Thomas Dolby is a perfect example, I’ve been following Thomas Dolby since Golden Age of Wireless first hit the US, and was finding other fans through early Internet days on AOL and the Flat Earth Society website, as we waited patiently many years for Dolby to leave the tech world and come back to making music. OF COURSE Nerdist is a big Thomas Dolby fan too. And OF COURSE fans of this website include diehard Dolby fans. (Like 3TF and Timber Tom — who, for anyone who doesn’t know, is brilliantly paraphrasing “The Key to Her Ferrari” from Aliens Ate My Buick. Nice!)
Dolby has some amazing music besides his big hits. Check out http://www.thomasdolby.com for more information.
I’m also thrilled Dolby mentioned his work with Prefab Sprout. They are my favorite popular band from the UK that never really made it big in the US — despite some critical acclaim in America. Dolby added his special touch to three of their albums in the 80s/90s: Two Wheels Good (which was the American name for the album released in the UK as Steve McQueen), From Langley Park to Memphis, and Jordan: The Comeback. You must check those out if you are a Dolby fan; you’ll really hear his influence. If you read/listen to some of Dolby’s other interviews you’ll see how proud he is of his work with “the Sprouts”. He’s right, of course, the leader of that band Paddy MacAloon is one of the great songwriters of our time. After Jordan, he really only issued new Sprouts material as a one-man band. Check out http://www.prefabsprout.net/discog.html for the discography. It’s amazing stuff.
