Monuments in Ruin - Episode 209 (music podcast)

Posted by BOBBY RAYFIELD on

Scorching guitar solos? Nope. Blasting drums rolls? No can do. Bass solo take one? Not tonight. The world is filled with sounds. Unorthodox, intentional, soundscapes and noise floors surround us at every breath. This week we further celebrate those who choose to dive into the universe of sound and experiment in deeper distinctions between what the ear, heart, mind and soul may find in equal parts. Some refer to this as harmony. Produced and edited by Bobby Rayfield for May 23rd, 2022 broadcast on the TrendKill Radio Network.

Musicians often kick around the garage jamming our favorite riffs and learning the skills from our masters.

  Walking right down memory lane with this playlist. Lot’s of things to talk about in this episode and i feel like we didn’t even scratch the surface. We could probably dedicate an entire episode to discussing Jello’s knowledge of the government, record trading with friends, massive discographies and great cover songs. Relax. I’m not Oprah and this isn’t a talk show… yet! Produced and edited by Bobby Rayfield for May 2nd, 2022 broadcast on the TrendKill Radio Network.

Monuments in Ruin - Episode 205 (music podcast)

Posted by BOBBY RAYFIELD on

Assembling a weekly set list is not always easy. Sometimes the mood or vibe changes halfway through and suddenly the whole ships sinks and we start over. This week feels like the stars aligned. Everything fell into place with ease and feels extremely welcoming. It might rank into one my top favorite, “Feels good when it happens” moments in the MiR catalog.
