Episode 375: Slaying The Hypebeast

HYPE has always been a part of the music/entertainment industry, but in 2018, have we gone too far? Increasingly, it's not enough anymore that an artist delivers a few great hooks. To succeed they have to be the greatest of all time, the savior of the music industry, or, even worse, the voice of a generation, all often without even having a single album under their belts.

We invited Marcus Dowling and Random Nerds Editor-In-Chief, Bryce Taylor Rudow to the basement to get to the bottom of it all in this BONUS EPISODE of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast.

Kevin, Paul and Andre try to figure out what the hell is so great about HAIM and why they’re making music journos go CRAZY. PLUS “weird Americana” stalwarts Blitzen Trapper are back with their seventh album to confuse and possibly delight even their most die hard fans.
