Music Podcasts >

Back before the internet and cable TV, before jobs and kids, before ipods and iphones, and especially before iTunes, this funny thing used to happen. People used to actually go to the record store at midnight to be among the first to buy a new album by their favorite artist. Then you’d walk home, maybe with a friend (if you were lucky, you were with a friend) and the two of you would open the record and put it on. Together, you would just sit there and listen. Afterwards, you would talk about what you just heard, and then maybe start it again. Record Time is a podcast that attempts to reconnect you to the joy of listening to your favorite music. A love song to music and the art of the album, each episode encourages you to turn off the world and turn on a record, give it your full attention and truly discover it again. We pair each record with an appropriate adult beverage. Partially because that was what we wished we could have done back in the day, and partially to help you savor the act of blocking out the noise of the world and focusing on the power of music to trigger nostalgia, new insights, and joy. Your hosts are Pete & Tim, music lovers, performers and long-time friends, who have assembled a carefully crafted playlist of great listening experiences. We spend each episode savoring the immediate pleasures of a record, and dig deep to uncover its secrets. We end each episode performing a cover of a song from the record. Spanning genres, decades and styles, Record Time is here to encourage you to press pause on your distractions and press play on the magic of great music.

Record Time - Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I just Sit

Rock is alive and well in the first episode of 2019, with Pete and Tim digging into Courtney Barnett's 2015 bombshell Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit. Courtney's mix of Dylanesque lyrics, Nirvana rock and Patti Smith cool is an awesome blend of influences and a great high-energy way to start the new year. Given Courtney's Australian roots, we pair the record with Fosters. We end the ep with a cover of "Illustration of Loneliness". twitter: @recordtimepod facebook:...

Record Time - Red Headed Stranger

Saddle up and hit the trail for this epic story of love, loss, murder and (sort of ) redemption. Willie Nelson’s 18th record is a concept album straight from the prairie and from the deep traditions of country and folk music. Pete and Tim savor the incredible musicianship, subtle hubris and unique personality of Willie Nelson and his incredible band, and marvel at the legacy of Willie’s guitar, Trigger. We end the ep with a cover of "Hands on the Wheel". This record is paired with a drink...

Record Time - The Suburbs

11/28/2018
More
At once sad, wistful, frustrated, and triumphant, Arcade Fire’s 2010 album is a monumental achievement in themes both musical and literary. Pete and Tim have lots to chew on with this ambitious and emotional drive through the outskirts of the city. Caught between childhood and adulthood, city and country, obligation and desire, the Suburbs deftly exposes the shared experiences of so many growing up on the cusp of the new millenium. Your hosts do not shy away from confronting all of it, even...

Record Time - Thriller

11/3/2018
More
Pete & Tim kick off Record Time season 1 with one of the biggest albums ever made. An obvious choice? Sure, but it's impossible to talk about great records without getting to Thriller at some point. So just what is it about this record that makes it so great? Is it just the timing of its release? The mercurial magic of Michael Jackson? Or is there some other alchemy in the mix? Is it possible to discover new joys in a record that's been played to death and back? Pete and Tim dig into it, and...
