Best Of 2016 - Eduardo's Take

Best Of 2016 - Eduardo's Take

2016, the year we played ourselves. Or the year we got played. Looking back, it’s hard not to respect this past year. On a simple scale of fucks given, 2016 gave the fewest. And, sort of like the Death Star, it’s hard not to admire how thoroughly evil and powerful the year was. It was bright in terms of music, and that may be its only bright spot. As far as real humans go, 2016 can only be described in one way: the year we were all Alderaan.

Episode 164: Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - A Man Alive

Bob Dylan hands over his archives  and one of our crew squeeeeeeeeeees with joy.

Thao Nguyen, her Get Down Stay Down, and Merrill Garbus have made a career defining, motherf@$%er of a record. That's pretty much it if you wanna cut to the chase.

You crave metal? We've GOT metal. From Finland. Put Oranssi Pazuzu in your putki and smoke it. 

RIP George Martin because GEORGE MARTIN. ;(
