Hit or Miss

We inadvertently picked a set of dense albums to review this week, so collectively, listening to them all repeatedly was a bit daunting.  But, like always, we did it and we have thoughts to share about them! That is why you came here, right?

This week’s episode is brought to you by the letter ‘C’. Why?  Well, it just started going that way so we made it a thing.  If you have requests for any other letter themes (preferably NOT Q, X, Y or Z), let us know in the comments and we’ll see if we can work that in sometime.

Also, this video is semi-fitting and still amuses me.

Alright, since this is going up really late, I’ll keep this short. We have four brandy new albums with four cool-ass songs to go with them.  We also have two live reviews from Brian’s recent ventures into NYC.  All that info is below. Get listening!  (And sorry for the slackin’ in postin’.)

(During the Junius review, I (Brian) believe I stated that the EP would not be released on CD.  That information is not correct.   It is available on limited edition vinyl, CD, or digital download.)
