This week on the podcast we’ve got new faces, man tears, invaders from Canada and two groovy cats from across the pond. First up, it’s already July 71st and we STILL don’t have a new Frank Ocean album. In age of surprise album drops, does the “tease then delay” release strategy really work? More to the point, is a world without Boys Don’t Cry any kind of world at all?
Next up - Beloved by many, and confusing to some, Mac DeMarco is continuing his chill ride to the top of the world with a new “mini-LP” entitled Another One. Is life in DeMarco’s world one big brah-cation, or is there something more to this joker. On the other side of this coin lies the groovy cats of Ultimate Painting. With their second album Green Lanes, Jack Cooper (Mazes) & James Hoare (Veronica Falls) double down on the relaxed vibes they delivered on their 2014 debut to make a strong case for the art of leisure.
And last but not least - Johnny Krueger, formerly of Austin’s Hundred Visions has birthed an eleven minute opus of riffage, rage and volume. We share a track from his Explicit Power to finish off the podcast with a kerrrrrrang. All of this, plus Eduardo joins the gang too on Episode 131 of ChunkyGlasses: THE PODCAST!
