On episode #41 we review The Mayfield Four's 1998 album Fallout. There's no doubt that lead singer Myles Kennedy, like Matthew Bellamy of Muse or Jimmy Gnecco of Ours, owes a lot to Jeff Buckley. But does he meld the alt.rock sound of The Mayfield Four with Buckley's ethereal tenor? And what's with that Marvin Gaye cover?

On episode #40, Tim and J venture into the nebulous world known as Jawbreaker. Are they punk? Are the emo? Are they pre-emo? Are they post-punk? Who knows, but we try to figure that out and give a listen to their 1994 album 24 Hour Revenge Therapy. Visit digmeoutpodcast.com for links to our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
For episode #39, we're joined again by guest Neal Schmitt to review a listener suggestion: Barkmarket's 1993 album Gimmick. It's noisy, loud, abrasive, aggressive, unrelenting and pretty damn good. If you're a fan of later Nine In Nails, the Jesus Lizard, Fugazi, Jawbox or the Deftones, we heard a little of each band in Gimmick. Give a listen and tell us if you agree.

On episode #38 we're again joined by guest Neal Schmitt to review one of Tim's favorite all-time albums, 1991's Still Feel Gone from alt-country pioneers Uncle Tupelo. There plenty to discuss on our first hour-long episode - the varied songwriting, lyrical and musical styles of co-lead singers/songwriters Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar, and the drumming of Mike Heidorn are rich for review. The discussion leads to this question: has there been another band since Uncle Tupelo that produced a pair of talented singer/songwriters?
