Excuses, Reasons, and Drama: My Music That Matters Podcast Vol 242

Here's the latest in DJ Shani Thunders' ongoing quest to find ear-tickling musical delights to share. Enjoy an hour of primal beats, sexy post-punk, lo-fi Elvis, sludgy psych, Danish electro-pop, spooky vocals, ambient heartbreak, and whatever other noise-scapes you want! Well, that's not true, you can't actually change the podcast. But here's hoping you have fun.
