#050: Season One In Review

December 27, 2011

Season One of Dig Me Out is in the books! For the last episode of 2011, we're taking a look back at our freshman year and picking our top five favorite songs as well as our new album discovery.

We've also got plenty of thank you's to dispense to those who made Season One better than we ever expected: Chip MidnightNeal SchmittKeith Jenkins, Gavin R., Chel at I Hate the 90sOrcen, Norman F., Shawn F., Bill L., Jon S., Scott C., Sondra J. and Gary H., Ruthie Morris of Magnapop and Ben London of Alcohol Funnycar.

And lastly, thank you to you, the listener, who made spending a few hours each week recording and editing this podcast worthwhile. With all of the exciting, interesting and unknown albums already booked for the coming year, we can't wait to get started on Season Two in 2012.

(Assuming the Mayans weren't right, then we cannot guarantee the quality of the podcast as the world crumbles before our eyes, as depicted in the 2012.)

Have a safe and happy New Year!

#049: Secaucus by The Wrens

December 20, 2011

On the penultimate episode of the first season of Dig Me Out, we tackle the 1996 album Secaucus by The Wrens. A sprawling 19-track album presents many challenges - can the band maintain quality from start to finish, while providing enough diversity to avoid getting repetitive? Neither of us were familiar with Secaucus, so how does it fair, and what does it mean when bands like Cursive, The Who, Guided By Voices, Spoon, The Living End, Men At Work and the Pixies all get referenced during the discussion of one album? Tune in to find out, then head over to Facebook to give us your thoughts on this episode.

#048 - Blind by Corrosion of Conformity

December 13, 2011

Beware episode #48, we're getting heavy. Jason wanted to tackle some metal, so we're reviewing the 1991 album Blind from Corrosion of Conformity. Like some sort of robotic transforming thing, there's more than meets the eye, or ear, when it comes to C.O.C. Sometimes the band sounds like the perfect touring companion for Metallica, sometimes for Soundgarden, and sometimes for Suicidal Tendencies. But does it all gel together? Listen and find out, then visit Facebook to leave a comment.

#047: In Casino Out by At The Drive-In

December 1, 2011

On episode #47 we review the 1998 album In/Casino/Out by At The Drive-In. Combine a frantic rhythm section with complex guitars lines and vocal gymnastics, and you've scratched the surface of what makes ATDI special. We spend time on the post-ATDI bands, and debate who wins the Sparta vs. Mars Volta showdown, consider the influences of bands like Rage Against The Machine and Superchunk, and ponder Vince Vaughn's Christmas movie choices. Head on over to Facebook and join the conversation.
