Yacht Rock has a definitive meaning (which can be blue-eyed soul but not all blue-eyed soul is Yacht Rock). Mitchell dons his Vans and Amy dons her Topsiders to step afloat the waves (which are not on the Styx). There is an abundance of Earbuddy feedback! And we have the next two weeks planned out on themes because of Soup and Kayla! Big Thanks to Soup from Try To Podcast for evangelizing about us! And after you binge our 140 episodes again, go listen to Try To Podcast!
There is a lot going on this week, least of which are the tangents. Mitchell and Amy hit pretty early on the importance of Off!™ during any Mississippi Delta get together and the true explanation of three different “rocks” occurs. So many rocks! Sit back on the porch swing with your adult beverage and some salad called “jazz cabbage.”
Reach Out to Us:
Have you ever wanted to hear Tennesseans mangle French while bringing absolutely lovely songs from France to your ears? It is your lucky day! Amy muddles around and Mitchell attempts to save her from her own pronunciation while having thoughtful conversation about some really sweet musical acts. Also, did you know M83 was French?
Amy and Mitchell spend this week checking out the dumpster offerings and curbside pick-up to find treasure underneath the used cat litter and soggy couches. They take their mother’s advice and only try to say nice things. Metal Johnny finds a way to gross even Amy out and Mitchell finds ways to compliment horrible songs against his better judgement.
While they come across as sweet innocent podcasters, Mitchell and Amy are carrying some bitter, sarcastic, snarky grudges that don’t seem to be dying anytime soon. In this magnificent example of how great the songs made out of bitterness, Amy cusses quite a bit and Mitchell admits how much he loves this theme.
We are somber this week and ask that all hold close the memories we have of those we have lost.

In this episode featuring songs about the night life, Mitchell and Amy realize that the Earbuddies are probably not raving as hard as previously thought. Enjoy this collection of thoughtful musing on what happens while we are awake at night (and it is not sipping exctasy).
While Amy tried to make this an all ska all the time episode, this is actually about those brassy, brassy horns (and totally includes saxophones but not flutes). Mitchell, as usual, brings all the knowledge and maybe, just maybe, has legit trumpet roots while not marching in marching band with all the cool kids in high school. Horns, horns, and more horns.
