In this episode WE GOT COMMENTS!! But does the old adage of “Don’t feed the trolls” apply? Andre and Kevin talk through their feelings about being called “worthless” for speaking their minds. PLUS! Speaking of feelings, this week we review two records that couldn’t be further apart on the spectrum if they tried. First up is To Be Kind, the latest crushing record from experimental/post-punk/no wave legends SWANS. Then we take to the canyons – Laurel Canyon to be exact – to check out Separate Oceans, the latest release from Chicago’s lauded Numero Group celebrating the career and influence of singer/songwriter Ned Doheny!
In our latest episode, we try to figure out what Apple’s acquisition of Beats might mean for the future of streaming music, and things get heated when Kevin introduces some good old fashioned yacht rock into the mix. PLUS!! We review the debut record from indie duo SYLVAN ESSO, and FINALLY get to talk about Meta Modern Sounds In Country Music, the stellar sophomore album from what may be Nashville’s last true outlaw standing, STURGILL SIMPSON!
