Brackets is BSM's song gladiator podcast. We pit bands discographies against each other to determine exactly what that bands best song is. No loyalties, few emotions and even less sense towards the end.
Episode 007 - Martha
It's 2021 and we're back. We took some time off and planned the year out and we're excited to kick things off with some legends, Martha.
Episode 006.2 - Into It. Over It. FINAL
The final instalment of Brackets for 2020 and we pick up where we left off, figuring out what IIOI song is the best.
Episode 006.1 - Into It. Over It.
We're closing our season 1 with a two parter mainly because there are just so many songs to talk about. Join us while we go through half of the IIOI catalogue.
Episode 005 - Orchards
Even though we say it's the fourth episode, it's clearly the fifth and what an episode it is. We take on Orchards full discography and figure out exactly what the best song they've written is. Join us.
Episode 004 - Pup
We step outside of the BSM world this month to attempt to figure out which Pup song is definitively the greatest of all time.
Episode 003 - American Football
This month we take on our longest and most ambitious bracket. We take on the full American Football discography. From 1998 to 2020 (via a 17 years break) American Football have constantly created some of the sweetest emo songs around loved by many people from all walks of life. If you're here for the Never Meant Memes of the specifics of the chord sequences then we've got you.
ROUND 1 00:06:13
ROUND 2 01:02:55
QUARTER FINALS: 01:21:
SEMI FINALS: 01:35:15
The format of the podcast is very good and I enjoy following along with the brackets. The bands discussed are some of my favourites.
A great introduction to new music...
A brilliant idea; spending an hour and a half with music nerds Connor and Oscar as they dissect (and reject) a band's entire recorded history, track by track...doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with the final 'bracket', its the journey that's important. A great introduction to some fantastic new music (hadn't heard Delta Sleep before Episode 2, but will certainly be listening more going forward). Great format, great delivery...big love boys!
