It’s New Year’s! Let’s Argue!

As our final act of 2017, we now present to you our collective Top 30 Albums of 2017!  Feel free to let us know your favorites – or argue about ours – in the comments!

We also want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who listen to this podcast and support us in any way. It is not always easy making keeping up with this show alongside our day jobs and living the rest of our lives, but in the end, we do really enjoy it all.  We truly appreciate all of you who listen, whether you are in a state next door or a country on the other side of the world.

We hope you had a great 2017 and we wish you an even better 2018!

Repeat Offenders

As much as we love finding new artists, we also love following ones we’ve found already. Well, this week is chock full of those bands, all but one of which we have reviewed multiple times before.  We haven’t loved all the previous output either, so get listening to see if we think these are the latest and greatest.

Overcompensating

Five releases, a First Impression, AND a Live Review?  What were we thinking?  Well, to be honest, we were thinking that the three of these are only EPs so we can handle it.  Can you?

Hit the Road, Jack

Hey, we have three brand new albums again!  Imagine that…  Also, as promised last week, we have a rundown of all the tours in progress or coming around soon.  Well, not all of them.  I realized we missed at least two (and apparently got a few other pieces of information wrong…but that is the Internet’s fault), but that has all been fixed in the list below, so that counts for something.  Right? RIGHT?  That’s what I thought.
