Anyone else come across this. Entirely on brand for this site, the current series on Radiohead sucked me in. They’ve also covered Manic Street Preachers, Muse and Billie Eilish.
Long form discussions about each artist’s catalogue and career, around 3-4 hours per album. As with all podcasts your mileage will vary depending on how much you enjoy the hosts. I found them a little irritating at first, but once I got their sense of humour a bit more I enjoyed it. Didn’t take too long to click.
Anyway, have provided an enjoyable background to my various errands and journeys over the last couple of weeks and thought that others here might enjoy:
Giving this a listen while i work today (starting at the beginning with the Manics) and I am really enjoying it. I am really pleased there is someone on the podcast that focuses on the music and melody with songs first rather than the lyrics as this how I approach music listening and most of the podcast I have listened to in the past the lyrics seem to be the singular most important thing.
Only on the first episode but at the moment the back and forth between the hosts is really enjoyable and their humour is pitched just at the right level for me. I’m also enjoying the structure they have where one of them is a super fan and the others are more coming at the albums as a first time/casual listen for a lot of them.
I ended up giving the radiohead season a go and am totally hooked. I’d echo all the positive comments above. It’s so enjoyable it might even tempt me to go back and properly revisit the first 4 Muse albums.
Yeah, it’s great, I’m now patiently waiting for the first HTTT episode next Monday.
The OKC episodes actually led to a slight reframing of my relationship with the album. It’s long been my favourite of all time but I always attributed that to it being the perfect encapsulation of everything I’m drawn to when it comes to music. What I hadn’t realised is that it’s quite possibly the other way around. OKC may no longer just be my favourite album, it’s actually the album that shaped my taste in music over the past 25 years.
I found it super interesting that it took listening in on these 3 guys discussing the album for me to realise that.
Listened to a few Radiohead episodes and really enjoyed them so have went back to the start of the Muse series and will listen to that and Eilish before going back to Radiohead. Manics hold no interest to me so I’ll skip that.
It’s very good, and has made me want to start podcasting again.
Would like to get caught up by the time the Radiohead series ends but that’s around 140 hours…
So they’ve been letting listeners vote in a tournament to decide which discography they cover next and the finalists are Nirvana and REM. Everyone go vote for REM on their Instagram stories next week yeah?
