Episode 21: Top 5 Songs Featuring Dave Grohl

Posted in Episodes on December 23, 2009 by Erik

There aren’t many rock icons that have made waves as regularly over the last 20 years as Dave Grohl. From the drummer of Nirvana to the frontman of the Foo Fighters and many more, Grohl has left an enormous mark on rock history in a way that few people have. As we close out our show’s first year, we pay tribute to Mr. Grohl the only way we know how – with a top 5 list. We also feature two songs by the truly excellent Lymbyc System, whose new album is one of our favorites of the year. You can read our top 5 Grohl songs after the break and can download the full episode below.

Episode 19: Top 5 Album Openers

Posted in Episodes on November 2, 2009 by Erik

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.

While The Musical Moron Twins are first and foremost connoisseurs of great music, epic beards are not far behind. In this episode, we each count down 5 incredible songs by artists whose beards are so great they nearly eclipse the music itself. But not quite. We also talk about another great band you need to know, Los Angeles’ Great Northern. As usual, the link to download the episode is below, as well as that other one where you can download or subscribe to our other episodes on iTunes. You can also read our top 5 choices after the break.

Episode 17: Top 5 Debut Albums

Posted in Episodes on September 30, 2009 by Erik

Most artists take a few albums to really hit their groove. A chosen few, however, release a debut recording that stands out as the best in their catalog. In this episode, we count down the greatest debuts and discuss plenty of others that didn’t quite make the cut. We also talk about two bands from the excellent Broken Electric Records – The Wooden Idols Remixes and The Sidewalk Regrets. As always, you can read our picks after the jump and can subscribe to the show (or download this episode by itself) using the links below.
