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.

On our latest episode, our friends Philip Basnight (Broke Royals) and Rafa (Rafa's One Man Band, Saduardo's actual brother) are joining us for a frank discussion about how we consume, market, share, and celebrate music in the modern era.

Episode 213: Cass McCombs - Mangy Love

Leaks are de rigueur in this digital age, and recently the band Twenty One Pilots had a new track freed from its capitalist coil and spread forth across the digital oceans for the masses to "enjoy." This didn't sit well with the  powers-that-be, and so it was that Reddit deliver unto them the head (name) of the vile curr who would commit such a crime. Reddit said no. What now doods?

At this point it's generally understood that singer/songwriter Cass McCombs is a de facto national treasure. He made a new album, so just like all his other albums, we're obliged to talk about it. 

Snail Mail is from Baltimore. Snail Mail makes rock. We'd tell you more, but it's better you just turn it up and find out for yourself.
