First we hear ‘Never Get Clean’ by J.J. Sonick, an indie rock confessional with just a pinch of gospel in the chorus.

Next up is ‘The Suffocating Rubber Clown Suit of Negativity’ by G:Nome – piano and ambient atmospherics surrounding samples of David Lynch talking about his experiences with transcendental meditation.

Then we hear ‘I’m Going Shopping’, a rocking and absurd taunt made by The New Old Men.

This is followed by ‘Heat Alpert’, an appropriately toe-tapping Herb Alpert-esque instrumental by J.J. Sonick, for the skit Heat by the comedy group Come On, Scientists!.

Next is the smoldering, post-coital, off-kilter acoustic indie pop of ‘Wreckage of the Hudson’ by White Mahatma.

Then we hear the slightly psychedelicized gypsy instrumental ‘A Trip to Romany’, complete with rainstorm sounds, from The High Country Low Lifes.

SuBBrilliant News reports on GM’s hybrid car with horse and more.

The Food and Drug Administration Orchestra gives us an important lesson in the acoustic ditty ‘Dig a Little Hole’.

Biota is a band beloved by J.J. Sonick and Eddie P. for combining ambient and experimental sounds with beguiling song structures, so in the Kitchen Sink instrumental ‘Political Song for Biota to Sing’ they pay tribute to Biota with the music, and give a bonus fond nod to the Minutemen with the title.

Finally, we survey a portion of the epic, constantly shifting ambient instrumental ‘Oceans of Shattered Glass’ by Charlie Naked, off the album of the same name.
