Great Podcast

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!
