Episode 185: DJ Douggpound

Rob unfortunately broke his leg and was unable to record this month's episode.  In his absence, guest Doug Lussenhop aka DJ Douggpound joins Brent for some third and fourth generation video game music listening and commenting.  Doug even gets into some VGM Karaoke action at one point.  Doug is a comedian/musician and host of The Poundcast, a comedy podcast of which Brent is the co-host.  Doug also often times collaborates with Brent on projects such as Pound House.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #52: Best Of Year In Review

This is it, users!  To celebrate the end of each LMH year, both boizz count down their top ten favorite new musical discoveries.  Brent and Rob switch (haha) off their selections at each level, so you'll hear both #10s, then both #9s, and so on up to the ultimate #1s.  This tradition may be a little more difficult to follow in mixtape form, but all you really need to know is that this tune parade is full of heavy-hitters whose attack power keeps increasing as the rush continues.  Make it to the end and congratulate yourselves on the first completed Legacy Music Hour year with a staff roll and some cake -- and if you have your own top ten list from the 2010-2011 era, share it down below or wherever you want!
