Earbuddy David suggested doing introductions to Punk, so Mitchell and Amy tackle this diverse genre. What is punk? What is the most punk thing you can do? How adorable are pagan babies? Welp, one must listen to find out.
Amy’s mind is blown by all the supergroups that exist and finally has a definition of what a supergroup is. Mitchell brings all the info on who is comprising each supergroup and yes, a supergroup can have only two members. The Earbuddies bring a diverse collection of songs and Amy finally listens to a Lemmy son
This week, at the request of Earbuddy Justin W., the show is all about the handclaps (bootstomps not included.) Beware of the upbeat hoorah but mostly because it will make ya smile! Amy realizes, yet again, that Hall & Oates are not a country band and Mitchell decides that at least one song can tell him what to do. Mitchell also teaches Amy how not to use “stinky” as a musical descriptor.
Some stuff has been going down in politics for a couple of years that ranckles quite a few of us, but generally the show has not gotten overtly political. So, this week, we decided to give up the charade and go super political with an episode about political songs. Mitchell and Amy don’t hide their political views, so yeah, something you may not agree with won’t be excluded. Buckle in and let’s get political.
In celebration of the autumnal briskness in the air, Mitchell and Amy decide to have a song of the fall collection! Music theory discourse is had and while Amy understands what 12/8 means, she is simply going to ignore it. Mitchell keeps Amy on track on exactly which song has insects and there is a voicemail!
This week, Mitchell and Amy take time to honor the Earbuddy musicians and prove the oft repeated “They just don’t make any good music anymore” wrong, because dang it, they are wrong. Prepare to have your mind grapes exploded with the talent of our Earbuddies and follow the links below to their Bandcamps and Youtubes and buy their music!
The whole spectrum of feels are represented this week while Amy and Mitchell discuss relatable songs. We all get awkward with people we like and get nagged by our own brains. Feel squishy, feel awkward, get better about health, and ponder if there is a need for Ritalin this week with the Earbuddies.
