Episode 117 - Magnolia Electric Company

In the latest episode of Long Plays of Our Lives, David and Ryan discuss the album "Magnolia Electric Company" from Songs: Ohia. Ryan finally finds an album that's the right shade of dark and weird for David to enjoy, and there's some unintentionally timely references to True Detective, to boot!


Episode 116 - ATLiens

Returning after two weeks off for the holidays, David and Ryan are here to talk about hip-hip legends Outkast and their sophomore effort, "ATLiens".

Episode 113 - The Low End Theory

LPOOL returns for our latest mutual pick, A Tribe Called Quest's monumental album "The Low End Theory". The beats are low-end and bass heavy, and our co-hosts are low-energy from being exhausted and virus-ridden, respectively!

Episode 112 - The Land of Rape and Honey

Happy Tuesday, Long Players! We’re back from our holiday break with full bellies and some moody industrial (what else?!) courtesy of David’s latest pick, “The Land of Rape and Honey” from Ministry.

LPOOL returns for the 11th episode! We're back to Ryan's pick this week as David and Ryan discuss the sophomore effort from one-hit-wonder Marcy Playground, "Shapeshifter".

Episode 110 - Demon Days

Episode 103 - First and Last and Always

David brings his first album to the table with The Sisters of Mercy's debut album "First and Last and Always". Will this dark, brooding record scare Ryan off of continuing with this podcast? Tune in to find out! From roughly 30:30 to 41:30, we experience some unexpected audio issues on David’s audio, but the banter was just too good to re-record! For now, you’ll just have to deal with our unprofessionalism and skip past if it bothers you that much.


Episode 102 - Is This It
