First Of The Pandemic
Live from Sean's Cabin deep in the heart of Quebec, Canada. It's the first podcast since covid hit. Andrew and Sean decided to come back with an Instagram live podcast from Sean's cabin and catch up and talk about some music they've been listening to over the last few months. They discuss new music from Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, Hailey Whitters, Jake Owen, Sam Hunt's 'Hard to Forget", and Morgan Wallen's recent douchebaggery.
28. Best + Worst of 2019
Better late than never! Sean and Andrew's 'Best and Worst of 2019' Lists. Some expected hits with some common cross-overs on both their individual lists, and some unexpected surprises!
27. Jenna Paulette debate + Dry January + Equal Play, Big Data and algorythms
Country Music is always evolving, and when it evolves well it incorporates modern influences but retains significant traditional components that make it country (pedal steel, fiddles, lyrical themes). In this episode the boys mostly debate Jenna Paulette. Is she the new Country-Country for the mainstream or just a different flavour of Pop-Country?
Also a discussion of the best non-alcoholic beers for Dry-January, and how Big Data and Algorythms affects the Equal Play campaign.
26. Final Country Catch-up for 2019
This week the boys partially renege their hard-line stance on unnecessarily re-doing classic holiday Christmas songs from last week. After hearing Stephanie Ryann and Layla Tucker slay a couple of the old standards, they draw some exceptions to the rule. They discuss Randall King's killer new Christmas song that is COUNTRY-Country AF. They circle back on a conversation about Jenny Leigh and woodworking. And they talk through their Jenna Paulette problem.
25. Country Christmas Songs
It turns out Andrew and Sean hate most of the over-done, reproduced Christmas standards: the White Christmas and Rudolph songs. But they love the original country Christmas songs and in this episode they rant (and rave!) about what's to love about these seasonal songs. This episode comes with a companion playlist on our Spotify page to bop along with over the holidays, check it out!
24. Jenny Leigh's table song, Karen & The Sorrows, 'Gimme Country' app, Brandy Clark + more
This week Andrew talks about his favourite new country tune, "Old Oak Tree" by Jenny Leigh that tugs at his woodworking heartstrings. Sean introduces us to Karen & The Sorrows and her very country-country queer country debut record. We learn about "Gimme Country" with guest hosts like Brandy Clark and Joshua Hedley. And Andrew rants about cowboy hats (again)...and a whole bunch more!
