THE SEX FILES: The Licking Non-Vanilla Podcast

THE SEX FILES: The Licking Non-Vanilla Podcast

In this particular column, though, I am ‘catching you up’ as it were on my doings. I am sure, like you, I found there is just so much cleaning out a closet/jigsaw puzzle-making/baking I can stand (actually since I work from home doing this writing thing, my work situation didn’t change all that much in the time of COVID). But I did get into something new and what I am about to tell you about is as much about porn stars, juicy sex-positive happenings, and kink as it is about me, so I feel somewhat justified (somewhat) telling you all about my new podcast, Licking Non-Vanilla.

Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited Live At The Royal Albert Hall

If you haven’t seen Steve Hackett in the past few years, you owe it to yourself to see the ex-Genesis guitarist performing choice tunes from his ex-band’s catalog (full albums in fact) as well as his turns across his solo stuff. This Genesis Revisited Live At The Royal Albert Hall is an 18-song collection of one of these concerts the master guitarist performed with his smashing band at that famous UK venue.

Mohamed Assani: Wayfinder

Mohamed Assani: Wayfinder

One of Canada’s truly unique musical imports is award-winning sitar player and composer, Mohamed Assani. On his new album, Wayfinder, the listener gets caught into a multi-genre, traditional, as well as modern read on the kind of mayhem Indian instruments can manage.

Andrew Reed: As a Bird of the Air

Andrew Reed: As a Bird of the Air

The short title track begins this baker’s dozen, a floaty synth opener featuring Reed’s high warble, leading into the big Billy Idol-sounding second track, “Strangers.” In the press on this new album, Reed tells of foregoing his acoustic for his “Old Strat and Les Paul Custom,” and one recognizes the heavy power chord influence early on with this second tune, and again on the sing-able, commercial vibe of “Twisted World.”

Epic Tantrum: Abandoned In the Stranger’s Room

Epic Tantrum: Abandoned In the Stranger’s Room

None other than Mike Portnoy (songwriter/drummer/backing vocalist for supergroups like The Winery Dogs, and Sons of Apollo as well as the co-founder of Dream Theater) said of this quartet that they are “A perfect blend of prog and metal.” I’d offer that yes, here on Abandoned In the Stranger’s Room Epic Tantrum do mix the styles well, but they also add in a whole lot more; great playing, tight songwriting, and what seems like a wild abandon to rock hard.

Ptolemea: Maze

Ptolemea certainly swrils the listener round to the dark corners and melodic byways of their Maze.
