Ain’t Nuthin’ but a G Thang

This episode is stuffed to the brim with content! We review FOUR albums, cover the letter ‘G’ for our ABCs, and have a live review!  So, I’ll save you some time by not filling this space with letter-based jokes and let you get right to listening.

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!

Dream Big and Hit Hard

The last two episodes were busy ones, jam packed with first impressions and live reviews, so we took a step back this week…which was easy since we didn’t go to shows last week.  We still have three new reviews for you, and music for your aural bloodletting, so it’s not like we took the week off or anything.  We just got down to the brass tacks.
