#055: Happens Twice by Hoarse

January 31, 2012

For episode #55, we're back with another pick by Jason. This time it's Hoarse, and their 1997 album Happens Twice. Featuring former members of Sponge, Hoarse takes a decidedly different approach, drawing on punk, power pop and even a little pop metal. Does Hoarse deserve to be slotted with fellow '90s rockers like Superdrag and Watershed, or are they dog food (yes, that was a stretch for an analogy that doesn't entirely make sense). Tune in and find out, then drop us a comment at digmeoutpodcast.com or on our Facebook page.

January 24, 2012

On episode #54 we review the 1999 album Mission: Control! from Burning Airlines. J Robbins may be better known for his years in Jawbox, but is it possible Mission: Control! is his best work?

#052: Lula Divinia by Shiner

January 10, 2012

On episode #52 of Dig Me Out, we review the 1997 album Lula Divinia by Shiner. Lots tags are applied to Shiner - progressive, emo, alternative, angular, math rock, space rock - but all that really matters is the songs. So does Shiner deliver the goods? They've definitely got the musical chops, but is it at the expense of the vocals? Tune in and find out, then leave a comment on the website or chime in on our Facebook page.

#051: Fossil by Fossil

January 3, 2012

Dig Me Out is back for Season Two, and we return with a good, old-fashioned disagreement. In episode #51 we review the one and only album from Fossil, their 1995 eponymous release. J contends there are too many lame attempts at bad funk, Tim still thinks 'Moon' is one of the best college radio singles of the decade and it somehow devolves into a discussion on the disappointment of Live's post-Throwing Copper releases. Tune in, then leave a comment on our website, or visit our Facebook page to chime in.
