Today we revisit a group that we skirted past (way back in CCP Ep. #36) called Walk Off The Earth. In that episode, we discussed a smattering of topics: the origins of the band, their history of covering pop hits, and their then-new EP, R.E.V.O. Well this time we’re correcting the books by looking at their full album, Sing It All Away, to see what it has to say. Afterwards, stick around for a discussion on titles, names, designations — literally, whatever you want to call it. How do song titles (or lack thereof) form preconceptions about the works they characterize?
This week we peek in on Jimmy Eat World to review their latest LP, Damage. Then we follow through with Episode #54‘s “Intro to Live Music” segment by immersing ourselves into the subject. We discuss the logistics of playing live, the perks, the pitfalls, types of venues, and our singular kinship with experiencing real-time music.
This week we’re excited to be reviewing Paramore’s latest self-titled LP, their fourth studio album and first full-length since 2009, Paramore. We also send out a head-nod to Adam Schartoff with Filmwax Radio and then take some time out to speculate on Paramore’s discographical future.
This week we have quite the mixed bag. For starters, we’re presenting our first-ever “NO pick” review, for Green Day’s third and final installment of their trilogy, ¡Tré! Then we talk a little about the staying power of music on things such as breakups, recoveries, and fond memories — followed by a fun tangent on hipsterism!
This week we review Green Day’s album ¡Dos! (the second installment of their trilogy), and we talk about the effects and weight of discographies on music.
This week we review the latest album from Ben Folds Five, The Sound of the Life of the Mind. Then we discuss public personas and the positives and negatives celebrity status can bring to one’s career.
This week we talk about what’s in our headphones, we review Green Day’s latest, ¡Uno!, and get into an in-depth discussion about what constitutes a “zero” rating.
This week we talk about Pussy Riot and Putin’s politics, we review Kids in the Streets (the latest by The All American Rejects), we get into a discussion about listening to music critically, and much more.
