Episode 147: Best of 2015 - Part 2

Episode 147: Best of 2015 - Part 2

2015 was a huge year for music, so obviously we had to make a huge podcast to wrap the whole thing up. In part two of our year-end blowout, Quinn, Paul, and Kevin share the music that gave them the most feels in 2015, then offer up some thoughts on the year to come, pull back the curtain a little on how to make a podcast, and do a dramatic reading of The Force Awakens for your pleasure.*

We’ve reached the end, but it’s only the beginning, so sit back, relax, and get your ears ready because here comes our final podcast of the year. It’s Episode 147 of ChunkGlasses: THE PODCAST – BEST OF 2015 EDITION - PART 2!

Epsiode 104: Screaming Females - Rose Mountain / A Place To Bury Strangers - Transfixiation

Epsiode 104: Screaming Females - Rose Mountain / A Place To Bury Strangers - Transfixiation

On this week’s podcast it might get loud when we review new albums from rock and roll powerhouses Screaming Females and “New York’s loudest band” A Place To Bury Strangers.  Plus!! Kevin, Paul and Patrick discuss the pros and cons of the secondary ticket market, reveal why no matter how you slice it stealing gas to do your tour DIY style is some really big BS, and then take a moment to reflect on this week’s announcement that Condè Nast has named our home Washington, DC the number one city for music lovers in America! Time to turn it up, it’s Episode 104 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast! 


LIVE: Screaming Females and Waxahatchee @ Black Cat – 9/17/13

LIVE: Screaming Females and Waxahatchee @ Black Cat – 9/17/13

Every job has its risks and, for travelling musicians, unexpected equipment failures are one of the most difficult to deal with. But, as in other walks of life, true professionals continue on, do their jobs, and put on kickass shows anyway. That brand of tried and true showmanship was on full display when the Don Giovanni Records Fall Tour rolled into the Black Cat on Wednesday as both Waxahatchee (broken amp, replaced earlier in the day at Atomic Music) and Screaming Females (mid-set equipment failure) had to deal with significant technical issues (Tenement appeared to be fine, though the lead guitarist did “mistake” a maraca for a guitar pick at one point).

After an energetic set from Tenement, Waxahatchee (Katie Crutchfield) took the stage in front of an enthusiastic audience, eager to hear live interpretations of the tracks from her standout 2013 album, Cerulean Salt. Katie did not disappoint, leaning on Cerulean Salt with tracks like “Dixie Cups and Jars” and “Lips and Limbs” with callbacks to her 2012 debut American Weekend (Including the stellar album closer, “Noccalula”) and a fantastic cover of “Make Your Own Kind of Music.” 


EPISODE 21: If It's Not Scottish...


In this episode, the gang ditches their fake id’s, shares their true feelings about some of indie rock’s royalty and ponder the true power of a Scottish accent and forty odd pints of beer. PLUS! New music from Nick Cave and The Bad Seed, Screaming Females, Beach Fossils, and who else, Scotland’s FRIGHTENED RABBIT!!!

    SHOW NOTES

    1. Slow Jam Of The Week: Survivor - "Is This Love"


    BEST OF 2012: Paul's Picks

    10

    Bob Mould - Silver Age

    Best Tracks: Silver Age, The Descent

    One of the true elder statesmen of rock, Bob Mould still knows how to turn out a kick ass album.  A pure blast of 90s tinged grunge/alt rock free from irony or nostalgia, Silver Age could have come out two decades ago and sounded right at home.  Fortunately for the music buying public, Bob was busy with Sugar back then and waited until this moment (when we really need it) to drop this impressive set of great guitar tracks on us all.  Put on your flannel, crank up the cd player, and enjoy.

    Screaming Females - Ugly

    Best Tracks: Doom 84, Red Hand

    Holy hell does this album shred.  Marissa Paternoster has always had a way with a guitar (and by that, I mean she throttles her axe and aggressively squeezes every last ounce of sound out of the thing) and a great voice.  But on Ugly, she and the rest of the band graduated from the enjoyable if somewhat simplistic punk stylings of their earlier albums to produce a full throated beast of a guitar rock album.  From the stripped down nastiness of “Red Hand” and “It All Means Nothing” to the 7 and a half minute epic “Doom 84,” the album is perfect for any time you are in the mood for some old fashioned, grunge and punk inflected guitar rock. 

    Unfortunately, Marissa has taken ill and has had to stop touring.  Here’s hoping she gets well and gets back to the concert circuit soon.
