Leftovers and Fresh Meat

So, now that you have recovered from your food comas and Black Friday shopping antics, you can can relax and check out some new tunes and reviews.   We were going to do one of these reviews last week, but, much like the album we reviewed, that show ran longer than we intended. We also have a live review!  It derails a bit into a discussion of setlists, production, and the overall execution of concerts, but that’s just as interesting a topic to get involved with, in our humble opinions.

After coming off of last week’s show focusing on production, we’re happy to report that all the albums this week are produced very well.  On top of that, they are all full of good music!  We have four new albums whose bands are new to us, and two of those are also brand new bands! We also have a live review of the last top of “This Tour is Personal.”  So, it’s a very full episode, baked twice for extra deliciousness (just listen…we explain).
