Monsters!! August 31, 2019

Dan joins us from Valcourt, Quebec as we do a show on monsters! All kinds of monsters, including Draculas, Frankensteins, Creature of the Blacks Lagoon, and — oh, wait. No, it turns out songwriters are really big on metaphor and there are almost no Draculas at all. There are lots of great songs, though, as well as a harangue about Morrissey that goes on too long and gets kind of strange.

More Youth! August 24, 2019

Youth culture killed their dog! Matt and Marisa are back (and not playing that TMBG song) on the second Youth show of 2019 — mostly leftovers from the first one, and in retrospect nothing by the popular ’90s big beat remixer Youth.
