TYCHWYE SHORTS #5: TYCHWYE's Guide to Popularity

00:38 Dave
Hello,

Welcome to episode 5 of TYCHWYE SHORTS. We must apologize for the drought of podcasts as of late - the end of semester has not been kind to all of us. However, fret no more! Episode 5 is finally here. In this episode, Brandon and Dave teach you how to excel in social situations by providing a few examples of how to elevate your position at parties/social gatherings by the use of a few simple jokes. These jokes, as many of you who are close with us know, can be used almost every day! We hope you find this "how to guide to being cool" useful.

Cheers,

TYCHWYE

TYCHWYE SHORTS #1: Chips

Ladies & gentlemen, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, sisters and brothers, etc. etc. etc.

It is time. It is time for us to expand our listener audience - we realize there are those of you out there that don't actually want to listen to us talk for an hour or so... so we have begun a new series of podcasts to go along with the current podcasts - TYCHWYE SHORTS! This first episode is the first installment of many 15 minute episodes where Dave and Brandon talk about basically anything (well, maybe not anything.. but a lot of things (ie. elephants, chips, politics, etc. etc. etc.)).

Listen to Episode 1 of TYCHWYE SHORTS to get the latest on new flavours of potato chips as Dave and Brandon do a secret chip tasting.

Enjoy!

Episode 13: Andy McKee

16:02 Dave
Listeners,

Welcome to episode 13 of Things You Can Hear With Your Ears! We hope that life is well.

This episode features a favourite artist of ours, Andy McKee. You may remember the youtube craze over him a few years back over his song "Drifting". We hope you enjoy.

Dave starts off the show by playing a song by an old friend, Calum Graham. Dave follows this song with a classic from none other than Andy McKee himself. To end off his set, Dave recycles the artist Josh Garrels (you may remember him from past episodes) to end his set off.

Middle segment: Mad Libs. That's all I have to say.

Brandon finishes off the show by playing three of his favourites. He starts his set by playing a song by Mike Dawes. Next, he plays one of his favourites by the amazing Andy Mckee. Finally, Brandon ends the night/morning/afternoon (but actually night for us because we recorded it during the night time) off with a song by Ben Lapps. ENJOY.

Coming soon: Business Cards. Be ready.

Episode 12: Foreign Languages

15:00 Dave
Hello all,

Welcome to Episode 12 of TYCHWYE! For those of you who are starting back at school this September, we hope you have a great semester! And hey, those of you kicking around the University of Alberta, come say hello to Dave and Brandon! (ETLC or NREF are safe bets for finding us)

Alright, let's get into it. Episode 12 is all about foreign languages - Well, I should really say different language. The purpose of this episode is to explore music from different nations or just music with lyrics from language other than English.

Brandon starts his set off with playing a song from David's favourite band ALL TIME. Actually though, his actual favourite band all time - Sigur Rós. Next, Brandon shakes things up with a super funky song by Cœur de pirate. Finally, Brandon finishes his set with a French rap song from Soulkast.

During this episode's middle segment, David and Brandon take you back to your childhood, or 
youth-hood, or young adult-hood (depending on how old you are) and discuss things they wish
 would come back into style/use.

Next, David plays his three picks. The first song played was from Sigur Rós' front man, Jónsi. Next, 
Dave plays what ends up being voted (by Dave and Brandon) as the best song ever played on 
TYCHWYE up to this date. We'll let you listen to find out who it's by.. or you can just look below. 
Finally, David finishes off his set by playing a song written by Sigur Rós, covered by We Are Scientists.

In other news, TYCHWYE now owns www.thingsyoucanhearwithyourears.com ... so that's exciting!

Episode 11: Darren Antonio

Hey everyone, it's Episode 11 of Things You Can Hear With Your Ears!
This episode we're featuring the newly released music of Dave's old boss, Darren Antonio! Dave started out by playing his pick from the album, a very Radiohead-esque tune, then followed up with the maybe popular Evermore and finished strong with the Grapes of Wrath (the band, not the novel).
For the middle segment, Brandon and Dave let you know the Things You've Been Doing Wrong and enlighten you on how to make your life better.

Brandon's turn then came around, where he too celebrated Darren Antonio with a song from the album. He then worked through some alone time before playing a Sam Flax song and ending on the ever-Australian band The Perishers. Enjoy!

Episode 10: Cover Songs

Welcome to episode 10! After many months of toil, we have finally hit the double digits! In this episode we decided to continue with the theme of not having a band as a theme and decided to go with cover songs. Everyone loves a good cover, unless they don't actually like covers.

Brandon starts the show off by playing a terrible song made amazing: Iggy Azalea's "Fancy", covered by Madilyn Bailey. Next, Brandon plays Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home", covered by ASTR. Finally, Brandon plays Alt-J's "Tessellate", covered by Ellie Goulding. Upon trying to figure out how David knows Alt-J, Lauren brought it to David's attention that it was infact her that had mentioned the band to him several times - hence the confusion between David and Brandon during the episode.

This episode's middle segment features Texts with Sharmayne or possibly better stated as, Word(s) with Sharmayne (Listen to the episode... you'll get the joke).

David begins his set by playing Macklemore's "Can't Hold Us", covered by the sweet Madilyn Bailey. Next, David plays 1931's The Carter Family's "You're Going to Miss Me When I'm Gone", covered by Kurt Hugo Schneider, Sam Tsui, Alex G and Kina Grannis. To end the episode off, TYCHWYE does something they have never done before; they play a song that has already been played.. *GASP*. David ends the night off with Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire", covered by Nicholas Yee & Josh Sahunta.

We hope you enjoyed this episode - changes are coming, including a much improved audio player and some other stuff too, so stay tuned!

Episode 9: Sasquatch Bands

Just when you thought we died, it's another episode of Things You Can Hear With Your Ears!

We're back after our unofficial hiatus, and just as (adjective) as ever. This week we're doing bands that have performed at the infamous Sasquatch music festival.

Brandon starts off the episode with bands with cool names: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. gets some air time and Here We Go Magic gets the second slot. Then the Civil Wars round off the first half with their entrancing duet stylings.

In the middle segment we set ourselves a time limit of 8 minutes to avoid things dragging on for way too long and discuss conspiracy theories (retroactively very relevant to the Sasquatch theme). No tin foil hats necessary.

Dave then takes us into his set, where he shares his big pics from this year's Sasquatch line-up. He starts with the indie dance pop band Lucius, takes a drastic turn to the sounds of Shakey Graves, and ends the episode with a healthy dose of Hozier. Enjoy!

Episode 8: John Butler Trio

Hey there valued listener, it's Episode 8!

You asked for it, you got it. Another episode of TYCHWYE. This week we're looking at the funky folk that is... The John Butler Trio, a cool trio led by John Butler, if you didn't get that. Focusing on the album Grand National, Dave starts it off by playing his pick from the album, followed by the first repeat artist we've had ever on Things You Can Hear With Your Ears, Josh Garrels, and finishing it off with the ever-folky Xavier Rudd.

Then we take a break from the music to prank call some people with classic pranks. Do we succeed? Do we fail? Listen to find out!

Then it's Brandon's turn to spin the tunes, beginning again with his John Butler Trio pick, then paying homage to another JBT song with some Andy McKee, and ultimately ending the episode off with some cool 90's music from Dave Matthews. Enjoy!

Episode 7: Colour

With some really cool music and the most awkward banter to date, it's Episode 7 of Things You Can Hear With Your Ears!

This episode features the UK math rock band Colour, who disbanded in 2009 to form other projects. Brandon starts off the show by playing Colour's song Shamu, a song very indicative of Colour's sound. Minus the Bear then gets some air time with a song from their 2004 somewhat-math-rock album, an album that Brandon held near and dear for quite some months. Finally, Brandon ended his set with a band he discovered shortly after succumbing to Colour's amazing sounds, This Town Needs Guns. From their album Animal, where all the songs are named after an animal, the clear choice was to play Baboon.

In this week's middle segment, we played the game "Are You Smarter Than David Shoults," where a contestant had the chance to test their wits in David's unique areas of interest. After leaving a message on an answering machine, Jason stepped up to the plate and took on Dave's infinite wisdom.

David then took the opportunity to play his picks, starting off with his song of choice from Colour, Unicorn. He then played a song by his favourite North American band of all time, Coheed and Cambria, and ends it off with Silhouette Serenade by Vendetta Red. What a solid set.

Episode 6: HAIM

14:52 Dave
Episode 6. Yes six. An even number. That means it was Dave's turn to pick the artist of choice. You're probably thinking... "Thank God"... or "Noooooooo"... or neither, because you didn't listen to the episode... or read this. Woah...

In episode 6, it was decided that HAIM would front the show. Dave began by playing "The Wire" by HAIM. Also, Dave discovered he has been pronouncing "HAIM" completely incorrectly, thanks to the investigative skills of  Brandon. Dave then played "The Mother We Share" by Churches with a V... or Chvrches. To end his set, Dave played the hail mary song, "Strong" by London Grammar.

In this week's middle segment, Dave and Brandon face off in a heated debate about... you guessed it... LASER FINGERS. Are they or are they not the best possible super power?


Brandon started his set off by playing "Better Off" by HAIM. Brandon then smoothly segwayed into "Fantasy" by MS MR. To end the night off, Brandon played Red Eye (ft. HAIM ).

Episode 5: M83

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s episode 5 of Things You Can Hear With Your Ears!

How this was mistaken for both a bird and a plane I’m not sure, but what we have here is another great episode of the podcast you feel obligated to listen to because we’re friends or family (hi mom!). This week we’re featuring the cinematic sounds of M83, the artist behind the ever popular Midnight City. Brandon starts the episode off with his pick off the album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, then segues into a beautiful cover of Midnight City by the Vitamin String Quartet. Finally, he finishes his set off with the title track of M83’s movie soundtrack debut (Oblivion, that Tom Cruise movie) featuring Susanne Sundfør.

The middle segment this episode is Stupidioms, where we discuss how silly idioms are. You can’t have your cake and eat it too? What do you want me to do, eat other people’s cake? What’s the point of having cake if you can’t eat it? People do that all the time!

 After all that thought-provoking and observational comedy, Dave swoops in and plays some great tunes. He starts off with the ever-unpronounceable Inni Mér Syngur Vitleysingur by Sigur Ros, a great upbeat tune that Last.fm says is very similar to M83. Then Neverending White Lights gets a bit of play time with his track The Living, and Dave rounds off his set with his pick from M83’s album, a great pick to end the episode off on.

Happy Listening!

Episode 4: Bon Iver

19:25 Dave

Well fans, haters, followers, random stumblers,

We did it. We reached our fourth episode - After over a month of silence, we are back in the action.

In this episode, we introduce the new location of our happening. We are no longer recording in Brandon's basement! Instead, we are recording in Brandon's new basement!

The band of choice for this week's episode was Bon Iver. As it turns out, this ended up being one of the more cohesive episodes, where the six songs all resembled the choice band. David started the show off by playing one of his personal favourite songs, "Perth", by Bon Iver. Next, he stumbled into "Cavalier" by James Vincent McMorrow. Finally, David played his last and final choice, "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran from one of his favourite movies, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.

In this episode's middle segment, Dave and Brandon subbed in for Dane and Braedon and played a game called "Crap!" where they ask misleading questions to unwilling participants and hoped they don't use wolfram alpha.

In the second half of the show, Brandon started it off by playing a song by Active Child called "Hanging On". David thought this was a brilliant choice as it shared much in common with songs by Bon Iver. Next, Brandon played "Hinnom, TX" by Bon Iver, remixed by Slow Magic . That one was aiiiight too. To end the show off, Brandon selected "Lost in the World" by Kanye West featuring Bon Iver. This electrifying song ended the episode off in style, bringing what they hope to be excitement for the next episode.

As per requested by several listeners, we are now including YouTube and iTunes links for the songs played so you can enjoy the songs over and over without having to listen to us!
