Episode 214: Lydia Loveless - Real

Episode 214: Lydia Loveless - Real

The internet has given us a lot of things, but probably its most valuable contribution to society (besides cat videos) has been access to loads and loads of stats. A recent study by Value Penguin (internet stat provider!) went ahead and ranked the quality of music cities around America. Noble goal. Dubious results. Because internet.

On Lydia Loveless's fourth album, Real, the Ohio-based singer/songwriter is growing in all kinds of new directions. Kevin and Paul get real about the songs, the critical acclaim for Loveless's work after Indestructible Machine, and the (possible) wrongheadedness of their own expectations. 

Baltimore is kinda killing it this year...again. And Wing Dam is gonna kick you around the sun straight back to the fuzzed out heyday of Smashing Pumpkins, and...well...Smashing Pumpkins. The Corgainasance is real folks. Really real. 


The List for August 19, 2016: Here Comes the Flood

The List for August 19, 2016: Here Comes the Flood

As you may or may not know, it's been a really hard week for the greater South Louisiana family. Yet another historic storm with record-shattering rainfall -- this time in and around my stomping grounds of Baton Rouge, LA -- ravaged and nearly drowned our fair capital city in floodwaters this week. There's not a single family unaffected in some way. Most are safe, but the scope of damage and displacement is historic and near-unfathomable. Louisiana still needs all the help they can get. (Please consider chipping in even a few tax-deductible bucks toward a great organization and a cause very near to my heart.)
