#136: Good Feeling by Travis

August 20, 2013
For our latest episode, Tim makes a pick from his favorites-of-the-past archive: 1997's Good Feeling, the debut album by Travis. Combining the brit-pop guitar bombast of Oasis with the melodies and hooks of The Beatles and Kinks, topped off with stellar production thanks to Steve Lillywhite, Good Feeling failed to connect with audiences, something their sophomore release The Man Who did thanks to multiple hit singles. Hopefully Travis fans discovered Good Feeling on their own, if not, that's why we're here - to sing the praises of an overlooked gem.

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - Good Feeling
4:48 - History of the Band
13:04 - U16 Girls
17:42 - More Than Us
22:12 - Tied to the 90s
25:17 - The Line Is Fine
Outro - All I Wanna Do Is Rock

#134: Silver by Moist

August 6, 2013
This week Jason picks one of his favorites from North of the border, Vancouver's Moist and their 1994 debut album Silver. On the surface, the five-piece are a slightly alternative and mainstream radio-friendly band. But dig deeper, into the use of keys and organs, and a moodier and darker sound emerges. But does it go far enough to make is truly unique? Tune in to find out.
