Shit We Missed: Part 3

Yeah, we are making SWM a trilogy this year?  Why?  Well, we found more 2016 albums we wanted to check out…and it’s our show and we can do what we want.  Like most forced trilogies, though, this one is not as strong a the other two. Wait!  That doesn’t mean the albums aren’t good!  I just mean that they aren’t as notable as ones the past two weeks.

Shit We Missed: Part 2

Continuing the tradition – and filling in for the lack of new music when the year starts – we have some more shit we missed in 2016.  We’ll probably be doing some more of this in the coming weeks, so if you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!

Are they albums you loved from last year that we completely missed?  Let us know in the comments so we can check them out!

P.S.  As you heard last week, in this episode and may have read in comments recently, Nick and I overlooked a few releases when talking about Most Disappointing, Best Debut, etc. You should know by now we aren’t always the sharpest crayons in the box. Well, adding to that list, we neglected to mention an EP we both enjoyed – Welcome to Poetry 201 by The Nietzsche. (Check out our 4 star review HERE if you missed it.) Sorry about that guys!

Listapaloozamania Start Now!

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the podcast we were stirring, bitching, and moaning about making lists.  I mean, we go through this every year, so you think we would just get over it. Anyway, as in years past, we have a few other short lists like Best Artwork (which you can see below), Most Disappointing, and Worst Albums. Enjoy these treats this week, and come back next week for the 2016 grand finale!
