Episode 138: Futurebirds Actual

This week on the podcast we’re getting meta as we invite Futurebirds down to the basement to talk about Futurebirds, a little bit about us, and much, much more. Out on tour now in support of their most excellent new album Hotel Parties (you can hear our take on it here), these road warriors have seen it all and dish some honest takes on life on the road, making it in the modern music industry and the often strange relationship between critics and musicians.

Plus Typefighter may be dead, but Ryan McLaughlin soldiers on with his new band Polyon! Their upcoming EP Blue – out 11/13 – is a loud, feedback drenched reminder that McLaughlin is one of the best musicians DC has to offer, and we’ve got the first single “Reserve” for you to make the rock with right here, and right now.

Get comfortable, check your facts, and settle in for yet another delicious hour in the basement, here comes Episode 138 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast! 


Episode 135: Futurebirds - Hotel Parties / Phil Cook - Southland Mission

Episode 135: Futurebirds - Hotel Parties / Phil Cook - Southland Mission

This week on the podcast: How easy is it to trick a music blogger? Apparently hilariously so if you’re using Wayne Coyne as bait! The gang discusses a hilarious prank that was recently pulled on the blogosphere, and its implication for the sad state of modern music journalism as a whole.

Then we’re heading over to the jammy side of town, as we dig deep into two of this year’s best releases. First up, Athens, GA’s Futurebirds  are back with their unique brand of cosmic twang on their new album Hotel Parties (22 min mark). Then, Megafaun’s Phil Cook has made a career out of playing with some of the biggest names in indie rock, but with the hugely soulful Southland Mission, he may have crafted the album he’s waited his whole life to make (51 min mark).

Last but not least, Meow The Jewels is here and it’s exactly what we expected and more. So that happened.

Get comfortable and hide the cats, because here comes a super-sized shot of the “23rd most influential” podcast in the land, it’s Episode 135 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!
