Weekend Playlist: Recent Geek Music

It’s been a little while since we’ve done a Weekend Playlist feature, which has moved to occasional status as we’ve drifted to various projects. There’s been a whole slew of great geek-related music that’s come out recently, and it’s too good to pass by. For your listening pleasure:

One More Episode, Kirby Krackle

Kirby Krackle is back with their great alt-rock sound with One More Episode, about something that I think just about every TV geek out there can relate to: endless marathons of DVD boxed sets.

The Ferryman, John Anealio

Friend of the site John Anealio has come out with a new song, up for free download here. The song was inspired by John Mierau’s Walk The Fire, a shared anthology, and it’s got a solid ‘Anealio’ sound that has me nodding along.


Song of the Lonely Mountain, Neil Finn

Neil Finn of the band Crowded House has been given the task of playing over the end credits of the upcoming film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It’s a neat take on the song that we heard the Dwarves sing in the trailer, and it’s available on the soundtrack for the film.

The Sky is Calling, Kim Boekbinder

This is one of my favorite songs that’s popped up recently. Boekbinder has taken to Kickstarter to fund her upcoming album, SPACE!, which is due out in March. A celebration of human spaceflight, this album has input from Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy and a bunch of others. This’ll be an album to keep an eye out for!

Our Biggest Challenge, Symphony of Science

Symphony of Science is back with a new remix video, this time on global Climate Change, featuring such notable figures as Bill Nye, David Attenborough, Richard Alley and Isaac Asimov. It’s an inspiring song.

The Veil of Isis, The Sword

This new song by The Sword feels like it’s a very nostalgic track, repent with out of this world imagery.
