Somebody Likes It Ep 118: Wolf Alice – “Visions of a Life”

0 Submitted by on Mon, 13 November 2017, 12:38
Wolf Alice…Wolf Alice? It’s one of those band names like 10,000 Maniacs that reminds you that band names are less about musical content and more about whats funny when you are having beers after band practice… Metallica=Metal+Vodka (not making this up) Was gonna show some more examples, but do I really need to? SO…podcast overlord Chris Cox hates it when Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It – Ep 117 – Tom Petty Tribute

0 Submitted by on Mon, 06 November 2017, 09:59
Are anthems nature or nurture? Maybe that seems a question easily answered, but think again: whereas so many of today’s musical tentpoles are crafted to be cranked up to Eleven at your local stadium du jour, Tom Petty’s highlighted catalog seemed birthed without the grandiosity later afforded to it by its audience. Petty tracks weren’t anthems because they loomed large, Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It – Ep 116 – Blackalicious: “Blazing Arrow”

0 Submitted by on Tue, 31 October 2017, 14:59
By now, we’re familiar with the Blackalicious mojo: Gift of Gab throwing obsessive, complicated rhymes over the steady propulsive backbeat dropped by one Chief Xcel, a formula that’s earned the pair accolades. But all rocket ships launch from somewhere, and it’s clear word spread about the duo during production…how else might we factor the parade of guest turns on their Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It – Ep 115 – Band of Horses: “Everything All The Time”

1 Submitted by on Wed, 25 October 2017, 14:59
Join us this week, as we discuss Band of Horses’ 2006 (turns out, debut LP, after an EP), Everything All the Time. If you love $29,000 refrigerators, majestic arpeggios, bizarre Gene Simmons infomercials, and mid-aughts sweet-sounding (if not-quite profound) proper debut for Ben Bridwell’s personal majesty, you should definitely tune in. Shane believes that this band deserves a greatest hits Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 114: Broken Social Scene – “Hug of Thunder”

0 Submitted by on Mon, 16 October 2017, 10:59
Let’s be honest: Hug Of Thunder, for all of its good intentions, kind of sounds like something made by Hasbro: perhaps a giant, fluffy, crime-fighting machine—the likes of which, for all we know, could actually be one of the members of Broken Social Scene, the Toronto-based and terribly talented music collective that burst on the scene with an iconoclastic by Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 113: Cracker – “Kerosene Hat”

0 Submitted by on Tue, 10 October 2017, 14:59
Whatever you think of Cracker — they’ve been the subject of chart busting platitudes and some indie derision alike — it’s hard to understate the importance of David Lowery’s contribution to popular music. That’s a fact. Beyond his role in crafting earworms that burrowed their way into car stereos in the 90s, his determination to alter the landscape of musical Continue Reading...

‘A Life in Waves’ Review

0 Submitted by on Tue, 12 September 2017, 09:59
At the beginning of A Life in Waves, we are told that even if you don’t know who Suzanne Ciani is, you still have heard her music. A bold statement, but they are probably correct. Who made the sound effects for pinball? What about the compositions for Atari games? The iconic “popping” sound of the Coca-Cola bottle. These achievements can Continue Reading...

Somebody Likes It Ep 110: Jay Som – “Everybody Works”

0 Submitted by on Wed, 09 August 2017, 10:59
In this case, buzz begat buzz when Oakland’s Melina Duterte drunkenly uploaded a batch of hastily recorded tracks to Bandcamp, and launched a sensation. Better known as Jay Som, her pop-up indie darling status seems only cemented since its home baked inception, an arrival marked by her legit label debut, Everybody Works. Duarte’s ascent, begged by some clear experimentation and Continue Reading...
