Episode 12: Top 5 Night Driving Albums

Posted in Episodes on July 20, 2009 by Erik

Music can provide the soundtrack to any life event, no matter how major. One event that many share is the long drive to or from home in the middle of the night. In this episode, we count down what we feel are the best albums to accompany those long drives. We also feature two more bands you need to know: the Minneapolis hip hop project Hand Over Fist, and lamentably broken-up indie band Rider. You can read our picks after the break.

Posted in Episodes on July 6, 2009 by Erik

After a semi-lengthy hiatus, we’re back with our best, most pretentious episode ever! In this special double-length episode, we’re making up for lost time with two lists about one of our favorite topics – trip hop music. We count down the 5 best albums and the 5 best songs in a genre packed with greatness. We also offer up a list-based tribute to the King of Pop, and feature two more great bands you need to know – LA indie band El Ten Eleven, as well as Headlights, a local favorite from Champaign, Illinois. You can read our picks for both lists after the break.
