Basement Shapes explores the dank cellar of 20th century recorded music and finds an array of still vibrant lifeforms. Vintage blues, garage/beat, rockabilly, early punk, and hip hop share shelf space with swing, funk, and the odd bit of pure pop.
This episode mixes up styles by covering 70 years of music but in alphabetical order (by song title). Some interesting genre collisions result. Some accidentally apt segues too. Worst segue: Schoolly D followed by the Smiths.
