Episode 19: Top 5 Album Openers

In a loving nod to the inspiration to the show’s name and format, we spend this episode counting down the top five album openers (or, as High Fidelity put it, the top five “side one, track ones”). We also introduce a very unknown band that we’re featuring because we can’t find anything else about them – Minnesota’s The Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria. Erik thinks he might’ve seen them live once but just can’t remember. If you’ve ever heard of this band or know anything about them, we’d love to hear from you. They’re a seriously excellent band. Either way, you can read our top 5 picks after the break and can download the episode from the links below.
