This week The Fix was a short one. Life got in the way but we will always do our best to bring you something for the week, so I hope you enjoyed the extra music! (Assuming WAYO is back on air by the time our show comes on, they are having some power issues…)
Showcased this week was a track I really enjoyed myself, the Umbrella Academy Cypher put together by the excellent Lex the Lexicon Artist. I wanted to give a special corner to this project on our little site here both because I thought it was great but also because it was apparently so great that it garnered the attention of the greater geek media, who seem to overlook nerdcore as a genre. You can check out the io9 article here and while there is some other coverage on other nerdcore artists they tend to be the “giant” names in general.
I would like to improve my own exposure to more “indie” nerdcore artists myself and play them on the show, I admit I do stick with the hits a lot myself. If you are an artist who would like to get your music on air or know someone who is, let us know! We’re always open to new content and using the power of R A D I O to expose you to an audience of who knows how many people.
The other notable thing from this week (beyond the Black Widow release FINALLY) is the new What If…? trailer which I thought was awesome! It’s hard to say at this point exactly how the show structure will come out (is each episode self-contained or is there an overarching continuity?) so only time will tell. Captain Carter is heavily featured but there are plenty of other tidbits flying by. Check it out if you haven’t already!
Something that happened after recording was nerdcore mega-star Mega Ran was interviewed by CNN on how he transitioned into Twitch streaming during the 2020 downtime from touring, so if you’re interested in that story check it out here.
