In which Beeso and the Doc discuss being unexpectedly mediocre, grunge before grunge was grunge, insulting everybody, yet more evidence why #GenXWillBeWorseThanBoomers, musical fossils, weirdly-specific NBA-franchise-themed editions of kids board games, why is Doc doing a Pakistani accent, pop sensibilities, Hot Valhalla Nights, good on ya Francis Leach, the week in bleak, the #SCIENTS of sad songs, the seether's Louise, the world's most bizarre supergroup, the sex music, tapering off at the end, Beeso crushes Nate Silver in his own building and Bono is Glamour Of The Year.
New albums reviewed this week were Pixies - Head Carrier and Honeyblood - Babes Never Die. Beeso's classic nomination was Mazzy Star - So Tonight That I Might See (1993). Next week Beeso goes full herb-adjacent with new album picks from the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and the Claypool Lennon Delirium. Hashtag Aquaponics. Meanwhile the Doc's classic pick is Veruca Salt's 1997 cracker Eight Arms To Hold You (shouts to Ghost Notes.) Current and immediate past picks for new and classic albums are on the BALLS Spotify playlist, with our picks of 2016 on our Mixtape.
