Musical Reuben 

We have reviewed all of these bands before on this show…a few times each, actually.  Despite that, two of the albums reviewed this week took us by surprise, for different reasons.  The third was good, but we also expected it to be good. So get listening to see how that all shakes out.

An Ice Planet Would Feel Nice Right Now

It is hot as Hell where your hosts reside, and it’s not gonna let up too much this week.  So we suggest sitting int he AC, listening to this podcast, then listening to all the albums we talk about…well, the ones we rate well.  Oh, and drink cold beer (and water).
