Episode 129: Let’s Just Open This

Episode 129: Let’s Just Open This

The album opener is the song that just opens up the door to the album and this week is all about those songs. Some songs are just an eclectic choice and some songs set the mood for the entire album. Even though this is a normally quite eclectic podcast, this week really shows off how eclectic the Earbuddies can be.

Episode 128: This One is for the Ladies

Episode 128: This One is for the Ladies

This week is all about the ladies but in the opposite way as that creepy dude on Instagram who slides into the DMs. This is a celebration of talent and joy and music made for, by, or about women as our way of marking Women’s History Month (which is apparently March much to Amy’s surprise.)

Episode 127: Sad Song Redux

Episode 127: Sad Song Redux

While this is the second time we have covered sad songs, this episode really gets downright emotional. Mitchell breaks in with absolute heartbreak and it is layers upon layers of how to construct a proper sad song from there.  Also, Amy audibly unravels, which is a kind of ridiculous weird thing to do.

Episode 124: All Your Bass are Butler to Us

Episode 124: All Your Bass are Butler to Us

On this runaway bassline hit parade, there is massive exploration of all the groovy lower end rhythms that carry songs. Seeing as Mitchell and Amy first met because of bass, there is some nostalgia before Amy declares that all bassists have the family name of Butler. This is pretty much a funky wild ride with the slightest amount of music theory.

Episode 123: The Cartoon Soundtrack of Our Lives

Episode 123: The Cartoon Soundtrack of Our Lives

Cartoon music is some of the first music most of us are exposed to and this show is all about cartoon and cartoon adjacent music. It spans many genres but also moods. There is plenty of excitement from Amy and Mitchell which can rival any glee that Pinkie Pie could exhibit.

Episode 121: Deep in the Annotations

Episode 121: Deep in the Annotations

In this eleven squared edition, they get super nerdy and talk about literary songs and what makes them. Amy put in some work and actually read about the songs and Mitchell knows all about the Camus. It truly is a Shawshank Redemption.

Episode 120: Na-na-na-na-na-Whooooooaaaa

Episode 120: Na-na-na-na-na-Whooooooaaaa

This week is all about the rhythmic non-words that add to songs’ emotion, ambiance, and generally awesomeness. There are some Whooooaaaas, some Da-Da-Da’s, some Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and some Byayayayayas, plus many more. Surprising to only Amy, it is not just pop music!
