Episode 256: The El Mansouris - The El Mansouris

First there were whispers. Then there was a video. And finally, after years of waiting there was a debut album. And just like that, Washington, DC "supergroup" The El Mansouris were gone.

Tune in as we dive deep into a minor masterpiece by a band that barely existed, but left a hell of a mark in the short time they had. 

PLUS! Tidal Talk is BACK, and now living in our darkest timeline where Net Neutrality is on its last legs and Justin Bieber is the only state approved music for the masses.

OK. That last part isn't true YET, but seriously guys...it's starting to look bleak out there.

PS. We've also got seven minutes of fresh PAIN from our friend Seán Barna for ya.

Episode 171: Eric Bachmann - Eric Bachmann

The roller coaster that is TIDAL keeps on keeping on as new reports claim that the troubled, Jay Z owned streaming service is making plans to sue original owners Aspiro for misreporting their subscriber numbers.

On his latest, self titled album, indie rock legend Eric Bachmann (Archers Of Loaf, Crooked Fingers) is shedding his past and delivering his most personal collection of songs to date.

Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil are lifelong friends and legends of Brazilian music. We’ve got a taste of their recently released live set, the joyous Dois Amigos, Um Século de Música.

Episode 123: Thundercat - The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam

In this week’s episode, we’re talking Apple Music, Prince, Foo Fighters and more! Apple Music launched this week to much fanfare…and then fairly immediate internet derision. Kevin has been testing it out and share’s his thoughts on its current state, and the verdict on if anything can really ever replace Rdio in his life. In other news, Washington City Paper fired a shot across the bow of crappy photo releases that concert photographers are often asked to sign by publishing the release for the Foo Fighters 4th of July blowout in DC. Is the outrage justified? Can we all just get along?

All of this PLUS Kevin and Paul pulling their best Statler and Waldorf on the new album from jazz bass master Thundercat, and a track from DC’s incredible The North Country taboot? Come on down for the basement, it’s time for your weekly dose of curmudgeonly love on Episode 123 of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast!
