Yes, that one is this one. We're back with Belle and Sebastian's 2006 album The Life Pursuit, and wow ... what a ride. Will you jangle as if unchained? Are you in touch with your feelings?

ELO - Time

12/1/2019
More
Here is the news: We have a serious case of rocket lag on this episode on ELO's Time. Come down from your plastic ivory tower, grab your Gynoid, her jumpsuit, your ticket to the moon, and join us in 2095 to look back at 1981 when things were so uncomplicated. Where is the plot line running through these songs? Will Jeff Lynne make it back to Julie? Have you rented an apartment on a roller coaster? In the future, will we attempt to send this podcast as a letter in the form of a dream back to...

Brendan Benson - What Kind of World

11/24/2019
More
What kind of world? The world of rock'n'roll's Charlie Brown that's what. Wait, maybe that's who, is that right? Anyway, what we do know is that Brendan Benson is possibly the best kept secret of rock'n'roll. Benson turns in an incredible collection of power pop on his 2012 album What Kind of World. Is what you want also what you need? It this tree sap dripping on your old reliable Telecaster or a brick of delicious sliceful hooks of tarty pop power punk? Will Ryan and Paul make it back from...

The Beach Boys - SMiLE

11/17/2019
More
Join Paul, Ryan, and America's favorite hamburger boy on a jaunt through the now released, unreleased, mythical masterpiece SMiLE. All jokes aside, the gloves fell off in this one, and we took a few long, deep dives into the 1960s, psychedelia, psychedelics, psychology, and Mike Love's hat. Have our kids done it and created their best episode of season one or have they finally alienated their audience and themselves? Grab your piano sandbox, modular musical sensibilities, and birthday cake...

More
So it goes, and so it goes, and so it goes, and so it goes. Where it's going, no one knows! Join Paul and Ryan on this season one highlight where things kick into 12th gear. Are you more of a Jesus of Cool person or a Pure Pop for Now People person? We're both and you'll hear why in a second. How does Nick Lowe feel about his label? Did Brinsley Schwarz open for Wings? What ended up happening to Marie Provost's dog? Will Ryan's towering physical presence scare Paul off of podcasting for...

Ben Folds - Rockin' the Suburbs

11/3/2019
More
Y'all don't know what it's like to be male, middle class, and white, and to listen to a podcast, or to possibly have your own podcast. Wait, maybe you do. We're back again with Ben Folds's 2001 album Rockin' the Suburbs. Does this album hold up? Will Paul make a Weird Al reference? Will Ryan slam Macca's musical ability, again? Will Ben Folds marry, again? What happened to the drum set Folds threw into that lake? Did someone leave the cake out in the rain? Some of these questions answered...

Margo Price - Midwest Farmer's Daughter

10/27/2019
More
Margo Price is a whiskey drinking, guitar slinging, establishment defying badass. Thank your lucky stars Paul dug her 2016 Midwest Farmer's Daughter album out for Ryan, who up to this point had a twangy slide guitar phobia. Price sells the truth, and once you take a taste, you won't stop lapping it up. (Shut up and take our money!) Has Margo done time? Has she successfully sung for Jack White? Will Ryan completely offend you, the listener? Will Paul occasionally wear a straw cowboy hat? Will...

Randy Newman - Trouble in Paradise

10/20/2019
More
We love L.A. and we also love Randy Newman. Good thing too because now you get to join us as we deliver a big slice of Randy's 1983 LP Trouble in Paradise as episode four of Now Hear This. Turns out Randy had a whole solo career before he started earnestly scoring your favorite Disney-sponsored toy movies. Our hats are off to the sarcastic, piano playing, soft-punk rocker himself. Paul's whole perception of reality changes and Ryan learns a few life lessons hidden in this LP he missed the...

The Fiery Furnaces - EP

10/13/2019
More
We’re back with The Fiery Furnaces' 2005 EP, which is neither an EP nor an LP, but dammit we love it. Brian Eno art rock-era inspired band comprising of Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger, The Fiery Furnaces were indie-darlings on fire from 2003 to 2009 (they broke up in 2011). This collection of singles and b-sides remains a refreshing classic and easy entry point to the groups myriad eccentricities. Paul and Ryan get real emotional in this one bro when talking about their "lost" periods on...

Metric - Fantasies

10/6/2019
More
Our hearts are beating like hammers. Why? Because you're still with us with episode two of Now Hear This. Paul throws Metric's Fantasies into our faces and we lay back and enjoy it because it's a near perfect album. Emily Haines, James Shaw, Joshua Winstead, and Joules Scott-Key turn in possibly their best collection of well produced songs in 2009 and we sink our teeth right in. For some reason, Ryan and Paul spend an awful amount time talking about breakfast cereal. Will we make it to...

We weren't sure where to begin, so why not begin with one of rock'n'roll's most enigmatic artist's enigmatic albums? Exactly. You will not want to miss this entertaining take on the Runt as well as the introduction to your two new favorite podcast hosts: Paul and Ryan. International feel! Still there’s more. Now hear...
