The Great Albums

Two indie rock musicians, Bill Lambusta and Brian Erickson, dive into the fandom of great rock and pop music and how it connects to their lives through the lens of the medium they care for most, the album. Episodes frequently include guest contributions from musicians, podcasters, and journalists and always culminate in a track by track review.

Bill and Brian discuss REM's Murmur (1983, I.R.S.) with Mr. Jeff Fiedler--musician, songwriter, singer, producer extrodinaire (sleepingsatellites.bandcamp.com). Jeff shares his near encyclopaedic knowledge of all things pop music related and helps us figure out exactly what makes Murmur so great. Is it Brian's butt baby? You'll just have to listen to until the end to find out!

Bill and Brian dissect Weezer's first album, as well as some bonus material, in another wonderful episode of the Great Albums podcast! This also turns into our longest episode (for an album with only 10 tracks???) thanks to lengthy discussions about mysogeny and the mid-nineties-ness of certain tracks.

In this episode Bill and Brian discuss the soundtrack to one of our favorite children's programs, the Adventures of Pete and Pete. Masterminded by singer/songwriter Mark Mulcahy, the semi-fictitious Polaris released this single album, which just so happens to contain some amazing music.

Welcome to the first episode of the The Great Albums podcast. In our debut, Brian and Bill discuss and listen to The Replacements' Let It Be (1984, Twin Tone). A seminal work for sure. Seminal of what? We're not sure--punk, indie, alt, etc. Thanks for listening.
