Deep dive, track by track
I love this podcast. Details about an album , track by track, and reminding us that albums had an order that songs were played in for a reason. I do love shuffle, but - my formative musical years had an order and that order made sense
This is rad!
Do you love music written for people and not aimed at radio popularity? Do you wish you had the time to research the stories behind the songs? Let Audionauts Erik and Kris do the work for you! They examine each track of an album (beginning with Walk Among Us by The Misfits) supplying analysis, actual facts, and misfacts about each. Especially interesting are the covers they unearth, revealing the influence of the seminal pioneers of music on current punk and indie bands while giving some underground artists the exposure they deserve (I especially love the Skulls cover by Agents of Oblivion). The unfiltered banter, peppered with witty comments and interesting speculation, provides not only food for thought but some laugh out loud moments as well. CUTXCUT is time well spent.
It’s good. I like it. They have nice voices and talk interestingly.
