#124: Naveed by Our Lady Peace

May 28, 2013

For Jason's latest pick we return to 1994 and tackle the debut album Naveed by Our Lady Peace. Following this record, the band found greater success with the second release Clumsy, but is Naveed actually the better album? We dig into Naveed, discuss the merits of the second wave of alternative in the 1990s, and ponder the origins of the nasally Canadian singer.

#123: Fade/Cliche by Sportsguitar

May 21, 2013

On episode #123 our frequent suggestor Dirty Gert throws his third requested review of the year into the ring with the Swedish duo Sportsguitar and their 1996 album Fade/Cliche. Like Radial Spangle and Space Needle, Sportsguitar is a challenge upon first listen. Hidden beneath layers of guitar noise are pop melodies, some deeper than others. Are they too deep, or just right? Tune in to find out.

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - Down 10:20 - Terror 13:49 - Reality 18:40 - Down 21:34 - Serious Outro - Tits

#122: Singles Soundtrack

May 14, 2013

For episode #122, we turned over selection to our Facebook followers to decide what would be our first soundtrack review. The response was overwhelming - it's the soundtrack to the 1992 Cameron Crowe film Singles. Logically, a movie about Seattle in the early 90s features bands like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, but curveballs like Paul Westerberg and The Lovemongers add some unexpected highlights. Is Singles the best compilation of early 90s alternative rock? Tune in to find out.

Intro - Dyslexic Heart by Paul Westerberg

6:57 - Would? by Alice in Chains

15:02 - Overblown by Mudhoney

18:23 - Birth Ritual by Soundgarden

27:15 - Drown by Smashing Pumpkins

Outro - Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns by Mother Love Bone
