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 take a short Springtime respite from our usual release schedule and talk instead about something a little different and kind of fun - a film with a soundtrack as important as its script, Empire Records (1995). Bill talks about how he loved this movie since his teenage years, and Brian reveals that he had never seen it until the very day of this discussion. We get into the differences between the theatrical and Special Fan Edition, our favorite tunes from the soundtrack (including songs from the Gin Blossoms, Edwyn Collins, the Cranberries, Evan Dando, and Dire Straits), how 90s angst may not resonate with viewers todays, and how some of our own love tales mirrored AJ and Cory.

No Bonus Song Thursday this week. We'll be back with another Spring break episode next week!
