The Oblong Boys: Better than the Beatles (and Way More Zolo)

"Life is Meaningless," said The Oblong Boys, Austin's weirdest and most zolo band ever. In this episode, I talked to Oblong A, Mr. E, Pat A. Physics, and Lockemup about how The Oblong Boys were spawned, the concepts behind their unique brand of music and performance, and their late night guerrilla escapades. Think DEVO meets the Residents meets Frank Zappa in a hypercolor Yellow Magic Orchestra mega blender full of Sparks. Here's to The Oblong Boys!

#FEELINGS Mix for Radar Radio

Resident Advisor Podcast RA.434

My highly controversial 2014 podcast for Resident Advisor, full of hyper pop and forward-thinking, weird club music. RA described the mix as "an online underground primer, Aqua's RA podcast is right on the money. It's fast, slippery and wilfully garish, blending tracks by key players like A. G. Cook [PC Music] and SOPHIE with music from his own #FEELINGS stable." It went moderately viral after their techno-heavy fanbase went ballistic in the comments, which led to FACT Mag naming it their Mix of the Week.
