Episode 6: Top 5 Songs Featuring A Saxophone

Posted in Episodes on March 30, 2009 by Erik

When you think of rock and roll’s defining instruments, saxophone isn’t typically high on the list. Sometimes, however, a song will use the instrument in amazing ways. This episode counts down the best of those songs, where the presence of a saxophone makes all the difference. Also, we’re featuring yet another band that you need to know (or else!) – this time, it’s British prog-rockers Pure Reason Revolution. Big thanks to them for letting us put them on the show. You can read our individual picks after the jump.

Also, we’re premiering a whole new level of sound quality, thanks to the great people at Skype. We’re still working out all the sound issues, but the room noise is pretty much a thing of the past! Hooray!

Posted in Episodes on March 17, 2009 by Erik

For our fifth episode, we’re talking about the projects that get created as side projects but end up being great on their own. Many such projects end up being terrible, but others stand out and some even surprass the greatness of the groups they evolved from. This episode is all about those sorts of bands. We also discuss our new band you need to know, Wet Sans Brolly. Definitely check them out. You can read our lists after the break – be sure to leave a comment with your list or thoughts on ours!

Episode 4: Top 5 One Hit Wonders That Shouldn’t Have Been

Posted in Episodes on March 3, 2009 by Erik

Some artists hit it big once and then fade away. Many of those artists got more than the fame they deserved, but others should have stuck around for much, much longer. In this episode, we discuss the bands we feel needed a lot more time in the spotlight. This episode features even more disagreement than usual, plus we feature another greatest artist in our indie spotlight (now called “Bands You Need To Love…Or Else!”). Featured in this episode is Nashville rock band Disappointed By Candy. They’re a really unique and fun band, and we strongly recommend you check them out. You can read our top fives after the break.

UPDATE – It’s been brought to our attention that there are some sound quality issues with this episode. We will be updating this episode shortly. When it’s up, simply delete and re-download this episode to get the new version.
