We saw them over at Union Transfer on May 10. Much like Tune-Yards does during their performance, we improvised our way through this podcast. Matt can’t get over the beautiful sounding D&B bass cabinets there, and you’ll want to take a listen to find out what we mean by that. We are both big fans of...

On this new episode from I'm Not Listening, Matt and Steve discuss a band with it’s lead member Ruban Nielson originating from New Zealand and now calling Portland, Oregon home, Unknown Mortal Orchestra (@unknownmortalorchestra).

There’s a lot to go over, and it’s an emotional roller...

Philadelphia Live Music Review podcast for Wednesday April 18, 2018. On this new episode from I'm Not Listening, Matt and Steve discuss a former guitar man from The Strokes (@thestrokesofficial) named Albert Hammond Jr. (@alberthammondjr).

On this episode, M&S discuss an incredible band from San Francisco, CA, called The Stone Foxes. They are on soundcloud @thestonefoxes. We saw them on Sunday 10.15.17 at Johnny Brenda's. They are a 5/6 piece rock band with energy and flowing positive vibes. Even though their music is politically charged, it's hard to tell because there is so much going on in their performance. There are instrument changes, beautiful vocal harmonies, and sick rhythm's and leads. Below are a few links to find...

Close Talker

On this week's edition, we talk about a Canadian band called Close Talker, not to be confused with a popular skit from a 90's sitcom. Or is it? We saw them on June 14 at Ortlieb's. They were the opening band, and probably should have been the headliner. We digress quite a bit during the podcast, but we talk about being blown away by musical talent, pubic hair, and their looks as usual. Lyrics and timbre are a strong part of the conversation, and we have an interaction at the end where one...
