Gary of Live Free, Twi Hard, Ham Radio, and the band Smol Data has joined us to talk about the debut album by (the) Arcade Fire, Funeral. Does Win Butler have the best basketball dunks? Does Owen Pallett is on this one? Does Regine Chassagne hurdy or does she gurdy? David | Matt | Gary | Tuning Fork

We're joined once again by friend of the show Meys, of Picking Up Something Good and And Also With You, to speak about the infamous 0.0 album by The Flaming Lips, Zaireeka. For some reason we also end up talking about Matthew Lesko, Steele from Balto, Mortal Kombat, and Neil Young's Pono. I was gonna release this one as 3 separate episodes to be played simultaneously but I think that Pitchfork writer Jason Josephes would find me and murder me.

János of always being on his damn podcasts joins us to talk about The Unicorns' first and final album, Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? from 2003.

Our friend James rejoins us to talk about one of his favorites, 2011's w h o k i l l by tUnE-yArDs. Merrill Garbus has a whole lot of her personal politics come out in the lyrics of this album...moreso than any of us remembered. Some of it works, some of it is going in our cringe compilation.

We're back, baby! This time we're looking at Grizzly Bear's first full-band album from 2006, Yellow House. We're joined by Brannon from New Nintendo Podcast XL and Children's Television Workshop.

We got double Minnesota action on this one. Charlie from Live Free, Twi Hard joins us to discuss that most important album of the year 2000 if you were a sad teen, Fevers And Mirrors by Bright Eyes.

Jordan from Juergen' It, Like A Podcast, and Slappers Only joins us to talk about some bearded white men and their tendency to pronounce words incorrectly.

CW for some lyrical content about sexual assault. Roy from Podcasting Is Forbidden In The Cloud Recesses, and previous guest Trevor of Giants Confirmed join us to talk about the most big-brained album of the Prog Aughts.
