Since today is the album’s 10 year anniversary, it’s time to revisit James Murphy’s irony-coated dance LP. For some reason everyone said this one was inspired by David Bowie. We don’t really get it. David and Matt are joined by Matt (the Scottish one!) of HKIPGTD.Tron Legacy! Tron Legacy! Tron Legacy! Tron Legacy!David | Matt | Matt STuning Fork
CW for discussion of sexual abuse.Well, we promised we’d name a woman. So how about we get 3 dollars for naming THREE WOMEN? Stephanie and Alex of City Girls Make Do take over the podcast to have a candid discussion about the first Pitchfork Perfect Ten since that one guy’s Relatively Pretty Dark Edgelord Fantasy. That, of course, being Fiona Apple’s Fetch The Bolt Cutters. Is it worth a perfect 10?Stephanie | AlexCity Girls Make DoTuning Fork
Content warning for drug usage, but you probably already knew that if you’re listening to an episode about Wavves.We’re back with the ultimate statement of skateboard-surfer-stoner-slacker culture, King of the Beach by Wavves. We talk about such things as owning two copies of the same album, horses with no shoes, convertible balloons, and Dananananaykroyd. We don’t know what business Nathan Williams is in nowadays, but I’m sure it’s a valuable contribution to society.David | MattTuning Fork twitterMusic by Animal StyleArt by Nicky Flowers
David and Matt are joined by …absolutely nobody! It’s kind of just a David and Matt one this time. We forgot to mention that Dan Deacon’s setup included an iPod taped to a banana. However, we did not forget to mention that Dan Deacon does in fact have a rattlesnake gun AND an Aerosmith gun.Sometimes nihilism can create the wildest dance party you’ve ever seen.Every Album Is Aerosmith:https://every-album-is-aerosmith.tumblr.com/David | Matt | Tuning ForkArt by Nicky FlowersTheme Music: “Open Air” by Animal Style
David and Matt are joined by our friend Zøe (@monsantobama), famous Washington goth girl and poet, to discuss the ultimate in teen swag, Treats by Sleigh Bells. We had no choice but to stan the short king of Derek Miller. Some day Matt’s nuts will fall back through the atmosphere to earth and be reclaimed by the ocean.Artwork by Nicky Flowers (@yiffpolice)Music by Animal Style (@nmlstyl)
This time we’re joined by Nick of the bands For Everest, Bot Garden, and Hard Pass to talk about some Hard Rock, made by Brian, David, and Gilbert Japandroid. We also talk about baseball… and Mark Ronson because we couldn’t not talk about him unfortunately.
David and Matt welcome Sara of Fearbaiting, The Wonder Yeerks, and HKIPGTD to talk about Bloc Party’s 2005 album Silent Alarm. We learn about such things as life under capitalism, war for gasoline, and extremely specific mousepads. Don’t tell Oasis about this episode.Follow Sara: @SunhatZhenya @TheWonderYeerks @Fearbaiting @HKIPGTD
David and Matt are joined by Meys of Echo Vessel, neo-detritus, RadIsh, and Picking Up Something Good to talk about possibly the most hyped album in the Animal Collective oeuvre. Matt asks for sound effects. Ed Droste gets arrested. A bunch of other bands get talked about because we can’t shut up.Go follow Meys:Echo Vessel: https://twitter.com/echovesselneo-detritus: https://twitter.com/neodetritusRadIsh: https://twitter.com/radishpodPicking Up Something Good: https://twitter.com/pusgpod
David and Matt are joined by longtime friend Caitlin to talk about Strange Mercy by St. Vincent. We try to figure out what MAN this album could possibly be about, because it definitely has to be about a MAN. Our best guess is Nick Kroll.
David’s long-time friend James joins the podcast as the resident Kanye Fan, and there ends up being a lot of discussion about Bon Iver smoking weed with Rick Ross. Did Kanye really make a perfect album? Did Chris Rock really get the watch he wanted? With the bezel? Was that Drake we just heard for 3 seconds? There’s a lot of questions to be answered here.
