Stoner metal legends Sleep are back with a surprise new album - their first in almost twenty years - that dropped on that highest of holidaze, 4/20. Are the heady trio's new jams worth the wait, or are they skunked like so many lost bags of dirtweed? Kevin and Paul have got the hookup and aim to find out.
PLUS! Joachim Cooder's new album Fuchsia Machu Picchu confirms that genius runs in the family and we're spinning it's tasty new single for you to get lost in!
In 1987, it was virtually impossible to go anywhere without hearing Rick Astley. The then 21-year-old released his debut single “Never Gonna Give You Up” that summer, and it went on to top the charts in 25 countries and become the best-selling single of the year in his native UK. His debut album Whenever You Need Somebody spawned several more singles, including a second number one hit in “Together Forever.” But peaking so early meant that there was nowhere to go but down, and though his next two follow-up albums, 1988’s Hold Me In Your Arms and 1991’s Free, were far from failures, they didn’t manage to match the heights of his debut. After his fourth album, 1993’s Body & Soul, failed to even make a dent in the charts, Astley retired from the music business.
