Episode 359: The Sciences - Sleep

Stoner metal legends Sleep are back with a surprise new album - their first in almost twenty years - that dropped on that highest of holidaze, 4/20. Are the heady trio's new jams worth the wait, or are they skunked like so many lost bags of dirtweed? Kevin and Paul have got the hookup and aim to find out. PLUS! Joachim Cooder's new album Fuchsia Machu Picchu confirms that genius runs in the family and we're spinning it's tasty new single for you to get lost in! Show Notes Official...


Episode 358: Port Saint Joe - Brothers Osborne

On their sophomore LP Port Saint Joe, Brothers Osborne has pulled off the rare feat of being EXACTLY as good as the hype makes them out to be. Good times, sick jams, with copious amounts of whiskey, weed, and Willie all make this "country" album one of the years best releases whether you believe in Nashville or not. PLUS! We've got some thoughts on the current state of Country Music journalism, Kendrick's Pulitzer, and Washington state's The Moondoggies are back from the cosmos with a new...


Episode 357: Loma - Loma

The best art happens when like-minded creatives get together with the simple goal of sharing and exploring a moment or feeling. For their debut album, Loma - the band made up of Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg and Cross Record's Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski - headed to the Texas countryside to craft their shared vision and returned with one of the best albums of 2018 to date. Intimate, but sonically sprawling, Loma depends as much on the sounds of the locale where it was created as it does...


Episode 356: Stain - Living Colour [Discologist]

Living Colour is one of the most important bands in music history. On their third release Stain, the black rock innovators dug deep into the history of their culture, the dysfunction of America, and the sounds of underground rock and roll and came back with violent, high-volume exploration of love, hate, identity, and deep humanity that resonates maybe even stronger in 2018 then it did twenty-five years ago. Join Kevin and Marcus along with special guest Timothy Anne Burnside as they work...


Episode 355: The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs - Wye Oak

Over twelve years and six albums, Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack have proven time and again that their talents know no boundaries. Their new LP The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs, finds the experimentation that the duo has been pursuing over the past few years - both within the constraints of Wye Oak and through various solo projects (Flock of Dimes, El Vey, Dungeonesse) - coalescing into a real evolution of the band that isn't just their strongest release to date, but one of the...


Episode 354: Ryan Walsh, author of 'Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968"

Creation doesn't happen in a vacuum, and in Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968, author (and Hallelujah The Hills frontman) Ryan Walsh explores every weird, fantastical nook and cranny of Boston that surrounded and seeped into Van Morrison's soul-bending masterpiece. We're sitting down with Walsh to discuss how he brought this story to life, the eternal value of having your mind blown, and a history of his hometown that has remained largely untold until now. Tune in, drop out, and slip...


Episode 353: Golden Hour - Kacey Musgraves

On Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves is dialing back the humor and turning up the heart to deliver what many are saying is her best work to date. Is this latest collection of genre-defying, lane-shifting "country" songs the future of Musgraves, or just a stepping stone on the way to something better? We've assembled a panel of Musgrave superfans to find out. PLUS! Jazz Bassist songwriter Nicole Saphos is classing up the #DCMusic joint and we've got a taste of her groovin' new EP Buzz and Bloom...


Episode 352: Everything's Fine - Jean Grae & Quelle Chris

Jean Grae and Qeulle Chris are both musical forces to be reckoned with in their own rights. Put em together, and you get what is sure to be one of the best albums of 2018. A heady shot of high-concept outrage, hip-hop, and heart, Everything's Fine is an unmitigated masterpiece that will serve as a lightning rod for anyone who rages against the insanity of modern existence for years to come. Marcus J. Moore, Senior Editor at Bandcamp and author of the upcoming book The Butterfly Effect:...


Episode 351: The Sounds of Washington, DC, Part 3

Known to most of the world as a political playground, Washington, D.C. is a city where decisions that shape the course of, not just American, but HUMAN history, are made every day. More than that though, D.C. is a city where cultures collide resulting in a creative class that produces some of the most compelling and diverse art in the world. Built on the legacy of jazz and go-go, D.C. is on the cusp of a creative explosion and bringing everything from hip-hop to indie rock into the...


Episode 350: Neil F@^ing Diamond

After a recent diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease, legendary singer/songwriter Neil Diamond announced that after Fifty Years of sold-out crowds all over the world he was retiring from the road. But NEVER from creating music. Andrew Wright (Blankus Larry) and Marcus K. Dowling (Iconoclasm) are joining Kevin in the basement to celebrate the career of this living legend, how his music shattered boundaries to become benevolently ubiquitous, and some awkward truths about Diamond's finest hour,...


Episode 349: R-Son and Rench of Gangstagrass

On our latest podcast, we're turning over our mics to Marcus K. Dowling as he explores the intersection of hip-hop and country with R-Son and Rench of Gangstagrass. It's a (mostly) Kevin-free conversation that you're not gonna want to miss. Show Notes HERELINKLINK


Episode 348: What A Time To Be Alive - Superchunk

What happens when one of the most revered indie-rock bands of all time gets fed up with the state of the world around them? On What A Time To Be Alive, Superchunk answers that question the only way they know how: with shrieking guitars, wit, and fury. On our latest episode, musician/photog/cat dad PJ Sykes is joining Kevin via teh interwebs to dive into this minor masterpiece of righteous outrage that may just save us all. PLUS! Richmond, VA's DOLL BABY has a throwback sound that sounds...


Episode 347: By The Way I Forgive You - Brandi Carlile

On her latest LP, Brandi Carlile isn't so much returning to her roots as she is challenging the idea of what folk and Americana can be, and maybe should become. Sonically and stylistically diverse, the Dave Cobb produced By The Way, I Forgive You is a seemingly unconnected collection of songs that, taken together, packs an emotional wallop unlike anything in Carlile's career. PLUS! Eduardo goes crate digging and comes back with a killer track from Italian singer/songwriter Pino Daniele...


Episode 346: Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz [Discologist]

In 1993 Lenny Kravitz was a star to some, and a point of confusion to many more. But none of that kept him from creating his future-forward masterpiece that plays as hot today as it did twenty-five years ago. Timothy Anne Burnside (NMAAHC) and Marcus K. Dowling (Medium) join Kevin in the basement to dig into this timeless LP, and get to the heart of why Kravitz was - and probably still is - misunderstood as an artist, the legacy of his music, and how making art that comes directly from...


Episode 345: Historian - Lucy Dacus

Lucy Dacus's debut album No Burden announced the Richmond, Virginia native to the world as a musical force to be reckoned with. On her sophomore effort, Historian, Lucy and her band haven't just lived up to that expectation, they've created a modern classic. That's it. That's the pitch. Go listen to the album NOW, then come back to hear Kevin and Eduardo gush. PS. We're bum ping a rad track from Washington, DC's Stronger Sex after all the gushing. Show Notes HERELINKLINK


Episode 344: Art vs Artist

R. Kelly. Michael Jackson. Woody Allen. Kanye West. Roman Polanski. Chris Brown. Harvey Weinstein. These and many more artists and entertainment luminaries have all reached the peak of and continue to enjoy great success despite being, in some cases, general a-holes, and in many, guilty of acting on, the worst impulses humanity has to offer. On a very special episode, we're talking about the separation between art and artist, how much responsibility do we as fans have, and when enough...


Episode 343: The Sounds of Washington, DC, Part 2 - Chocolate City

Known to most of the world as a political playground, Washington, D.C. is a city where decisions that shape the course of, not just American, but HUMAN history, are made every day. More than that though, D.C. is a city where cultures collide resulting in a creative class that produces some of the most compelling and diverse art in the world. Built on the legacy of jazz and go-go, D.C. is on the cusp of a creative explosion and bringing everything from hip-hop to indie rock into the...


Episode 342: The Optimist - Ryan Porter

Eight years ago, before To Pimp A Butterfly, before The Epic, the West Coast Get Down was a rising force in the Los Angelas jazz scene...who recorded their epic work in Kamasi Washington's garage. On The Optimist, WCGD trombonist Ryan Porter is unleashing some of the group's early work as scrappy young jazz savants and in the process revealing the heart of what drives its member's dominance of the music world to this day. Bandcamp's Marcus J. Moore joins Kevin and Marcus K. Dowling...


Episode 341: Pablo Honey - Radiohead [Discologist]

Every great band starts somewhere and for Radiohead, their introduction to the world was the biggest hit of their career wrapped in an album of loud, forward-thinking, guitar rock. And for some reason their fans hate it. We're holding court to defend this classic album and show why it's not just so much more than "Creep", it's one of the best albums of their career. BUT FIRST: We need #GunControlNow, and it's the younger generation that is going to finally put a stop to the...


Episode 340: See You Around - I'm With Her

All it took was an off-the-cuff show back in 2014, and the trio of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan knew they had something special. Formalizing this new union under the name I'm With Her, the three powerhouses have spent the past few years sporadically touring the group around, releasing an EP, and now they are releasing their much-anticipated debut full-length, See You Around. Built on a foundation of tradition, intimate confessionalism, and expert musicianship, See You...
