I've recently finished up Year 2 of Welcome to Night Vale, which is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to.  I started in on it last year, so I'm a little late to the party, but I'm trying to catch up.  Anyway, for the next few weeks I'll be sharing with you some of my favorite segments from "The Weather" from Year 2.  Without further ado, here we go in episode order:

"Long Gone" by Mary Epworth from Episode 26, "Faceless Old Woman" - I love her voice, the simplicity of the video, and the brassy sound.


"The Lethal Temptress" by The Mendoza Line from Episode 30, "Dana" - Just listen to the story of this song, totally reminds me of some of my favorite traditional and bluegrass songs.


"Never Be Famous" by Hussalonia from Episode 31, "A Blinking Light Up On The Mountain" - Be sure to keep your eyes on the Hussalonia "facts" in the video.  Also, this song makes me think of The Eels music, which is a good thing.


"Peanuts" by Sam 'n' Ash from Episode 36, "Missing" - I'm not sure why the video is like this, but I just love the instrumental combination of accordion and mandolin - never would have expected to say that, but the blend just make me feel happy.

    1. It's designed to be like a local community radio program in a town in the American Southwest called Night Vale. Night Vale has a lot of strange and unusual happenings and inhabitants - it reminds me of The Twilight Zone, but with more fantasy elements and a healthy sense of humor. You would definitely want to start with the first episode of year one. It's pretty awesome! :)
