In today's episode, Ian discusses what he's been trying to listen to in between the chaos of the week and what to look forward to the upcoming week. Notable picks last week were the new Fleet Foxes and Alt-J singles. As well as, the new Minus the Bear and Tim Kasher albums. The tenth is also a big release day, with releases from The Shins, Laura Marling, Planning For Burial, Jay Som, and many many more!
Ian is joined by some guy named Sean to talk about the 50th Anniversary of The Velvet Underground & Nico album of the same name. All jokes aside Sean is a good friend of Ian's who is known to many as a walking encyclopedia. He passed the test when he knew who Crack the Sky was and he's incredibly handsome to boot! Needless to say, the two get into one heck of a conversation. Also, we apologize if we offended any hicks/rednecks/hillbillies/etc. Also, props for listening to the show!
"Produced" by Andy Warhol (and some uncredited fellows) The Velvet Underground & Nico is one of the most influential albums of all time. It broke new ground with its minimal production and overall raw feel. Its lyrical content spanned from heroin use to sadomasochism. Very taboo stuff for 1967, buts that the kind if stuff that influences generations of artists and multiple genres.
