#045: Weasels by Alcohol Funnycar

November 22, 2011

On episode #45, it's back to listener suggestions. This week we tackle the 1995 album Weasels by Alcohol Funnycar. Joining us for this episode is Chip Midnight, and he's got an interview with Alcohol Funnycar's Ben London. In our discussion, we try to determine if AFC's Weasels is the sound of '90s - a little punk, a little grunge, some melody and edginess, but pretty much just rock. Leave us a comment at digmeoutpodcast.com, or stop by our Facebook page to chime in.

And with Thanksgiving upon us, we decided to take part in the holiday tradition of overeating by not only giving you an extra large episode, we're giving you a bonus podcast - the unedited interview with Ben available tomorrow. Gobble gobble!

#044: Circa Now! by Rocket from the Crypt

November 15, 2011

One episode #44 we were supposed to be joined by label owner Bill Litfin of the now defunct Glazed Records to review the 1992 Rocket from the Crypt album Circa:Now! Bill couldn't make it, so we're left to our own devices to review what Jason calls the album that defines the sound of RFTC. With bombastic guitars and the distinctive vocals of John Reis, it's hard to pinpoint the influences and origins of RFTC. Voice your opinion on our Facebook page  or Twitter feed.

#043: Teenage Symphonies to God by Velvet Crush

November 8, 2011

On episode #43 we review the Matthew Sweet co-produced 1994 album Teenage Symphonies to God by Velvet Crush. Neither of us were familiar with the band before hearing the album, but now we're firmly on board the Velvet Crush train. If you're a fan of '60s pop like The Byrds and Beatles, the '70s power pop of Cheap Trick, Big Star and the Raspberries and '90s alt rockers like Sweet and Teenage Fanclub, you'll want to check out this episode.

#042: Songs from the Second Storey by The God Machine

November 1, 2011

One episode #42 we're back with another listener suggestion - the 1993 album Songs from the Second Storey by The God Machine. This band took a long journey from SoCal to NYC to the UK, and it sounds like it. Hints of Kyuss-like stoner rock meld with British shoegaze and Jane's Addiction psychedelia. But is there too much of a good thing on the longest album we've ever reviewed? Tune in and find out. To comment, visit digmeoutpodcast.com for our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
