2012: A Year In Your Ear

a sonic time capsule for the end of days that didn't end.

In 2012, we remixed our news and social media into 10 storysongs charting the course of our failed apocalypse. we crafted these ditties, kick drum to lead vocal, from your youtube videos, junk culture and news cycles. why? to make rick santorum, peter higgs and antonin scalia pop stars, naturally.  

often ridiculous, occasionally grave and always unforgettable, we've since remastered these tracks for an album release with hyper-colored new imagery from artist chris rand. download the album for free and consider supporting future mad manor podcasts with a donation.
