My favorite podcast

Category: Podcast

My favorite podcast is called "Why I Hate this Album" Two guys named Tim Richardson and Garrett Harvey listen to an album for a week and criticize it Their dynamic is sooooo funny. You get these conversations about candle-based serial killers, cowboy cults, wearing nice shoes to get into heaven, all from limp bizkit lyrics or florida georgia line lyrics. It's incredibly unknown, so I am never not ... » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 20

Category: Music

Feel free to recommend more albums, and click here for the playlist. May 13th: Histoire de Melody Nelson by Serge Gainsbourg This was my first excursion into french pop in the 70s, and this album definitely caught my attention. I like the crunchy baritone guitar sounds and the tight grooves and the orchestral flourishes, most evident on "Melody" and "En Melody" (the song titles ar » Continue Reading

Continuing to link to the playlist even if I don't think anyone's read a word of these. But this is more for me than it is for anyone else. May 6th: Happiness... is Not a Fish That You Can Catch by Our Lady Peace This is a band I've been meaning to learn more about for a while, as this particular album was on Crash Thompson's wall of favorites for a lo » Continue Reading

1/3rd of the way through this project. As always feel free to recommend albums, and check out the playlist. April 22nd: Souvlaki by Slowdive This is another one I've been meaning to get around to. Apparently, there's debates over whether this album is better that Loveless » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 15

Category: Music

Feel free to suggest other albums. I don't think my current list will last me to the end of the year. Also the playlist link. April 8th: Rated R by Queens of the Stone Age I've listened to Songs for the Deaf before, so it was natural that I would love this. It's brutal, punchy, but has a sense of h » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 14

Category: Music

Playlist April 1st: Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers by The National I've listened to a few National albums before, but I wanted to look at their earlier work. This is a good example of how, after their first album was vaguely country-ish (I've heard some of it), the National had a very clear idea of what they wanted to be: dark, dramatic, sometimes sarcastic » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 13

Category: Music

Link to playlist here. Like you give a shit. March 25th: The Return Of The Space Cowboy by Jamiroquai Funky basslines. High-pitched vocals. Groovy keyboard licks. Jamiroquai's funky-jazzy style is something I don't listen to nearly enough. "Just Another Story" makes it clear from the beginning that this is going to be an epic journey of rhythm, and tha » Continue Reading

The playlist Yeah I'm out of ideas for how to open these. And these don't get notes anyway. March 18th: Bone Machine by Tom Waits Tom Waits is a fascinatingly weird man. I listened to an interview with him where he went on a weir » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 11

March 11th: Decoration Day by Drive-By Truckers Man, they weren't kidding. That first song is about incest. This album is pretty good blues-inspired rock with some ripping guitar riffs, with my favorites being "My Sweet Annette", "Heathens", and the title track. This was also the first album of Jason Isbell's brief stint in the band, before he left to pursue his solo career in non-terrible country... » Continue Reading

2024 Album-A-Day: Week 10

Category: Music

I should probably stop writing intros if nobody reads these. March 4th: Apostrope (') by Frank Zappa This was my first time with a full Zappa album, and I was not disappointed. Shorter than I expected, for one thing, but that's not the main draw. The main draw is that Frank Zappa is a fucking lunatic genius . Can any other musician say that they opened an album with "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow", wh... » Continue Reading
