Stream of Consciousness is the place to find bedroom pop jams, with some anecdotes and random musings between songs. Tune in to hear what the inside of my mind sounds like—spoiler: it sounds like a lot of sad indie jams with some alternative rock and random thoughts to keep things interesting.

Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?
Fast and slow rock n roll, indie, folk, blues, and pop songs.

In these confused times isn't it nice to find some relief? Every week, James will try to bring some sense into this crazy world via the radio waves. Look back. Look forward. Seek the truth. Never dull. Always irreverent. Fight the good fight by just sitting back and listening.
