  • The War On Drugs

    Oct 25 2021

    John and Justin welcome guest Brian Brinkman of Osiris Media to talk about The War on Drugs. We do some deeper listening into their first four studio albums in anticipation of their new album I Don't Live Here Anymore coming out on October 29th, 2021.

    We talk about the evolution of Adam Granduciel's sound from 2008's Wagonwheel Blues to 2011's Slave Ambient, loudly proclaim the greatness that is 2014's Lost in the Dream, and discuss 2017's major label debut, A Deeper Understanding.

    Our theme music is provided by the incredibly talented Thomas Wing. The updated version of Get Into A Better Mood is so great that we include it in full at the end of the episode! Check out his Bandcamp page for more great music:

  • Metallica

    Sep 21 2021

    John and Justin explore the first half of Metallica's discography from 1983's debut Kill 'Em All through 1991's self-titled album, AKA the Black album. Combing through the band's glory days with two distinct perspectives (John has been a fan since childhood, Justin has only heard snippets on the radio) yields an interesting conversation about exactly when the band reached the peak of their genre-defining thrash metal sound. Whether you're a jaded veteran or a heavy metal newbie, we think you'll gain a new appreciation for Metallica via our closer consideration of Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All, and the Black album.

    Theme music (we are still loving the new version) provided by the incredibly talented Thomas Wing. Check out his Bandcamp page for more great music:
