A Last Look to 2017

Since new music (we are actually interested) in will be released soon, this will be the last episode solely dedicated to 2017’s Shit We Missed. If there is anything else we really should go back to, please let us know, and we’ll work it in later.  Also, PA was second state to enter the union, so they are this week’s Bands Across America feature!

Getting Into Gear

Among the album reviews, First Impression, and live review we have for you this week, Nick and I had a little sidebar chat about headphones.  We mention our gear sometimes but, after an experience this week, we felt the need to stress the importance of decent personal listening equipment.  We hope you enjoy the talk (and feel free to participate via comments) but if you really don’t care, I will take this time to remind you that we include chapter skips.
